I had a birthday. Wasn't a big one. Lets never talk about it again.
No, I really had a fine birthday. I was treated at home with flowers and cards.
My students treated me baked goods and chocolate and my family treated me with much loved goodies. I got these great new bowls from West Elm (the stacks on the right) from my mom and some tulip bowls from my dad. I have a thing for colored dishes.
I made myself Baked Alaska. It wasn't like I thought it would be. My stepmom used to make baked Alaska and my sister and I have been trying to replicate it. I'll have to try again. This wasn't exactly it. It took us three years of trial and error to figure out the marinated mushrooms, so I won't give up just yet.
