Most Epic Birthday Weekend EVAH

I haven't dropped off the face of the earth. I have, however, been swamped with work. WORK!

The nerve of some people who want to, like, pay me to write.

Anyway, I wanted to do a short recap of my birthday celebration. And because a picture is worth a thousand words, and I don't have time to write a thousand words (at least not for free) today, I'ma put up a few lovely photos for your viewing pleasure.

For my birthday, I got this from my friends:

Mmm cookie dough ice cream cake from Coldstone Creamery.

And then we went out for hibachi and sushi:

... and drinks.

Side note: the hibachi chef tried to toss a piece of shrimp into my mouth. It hit me in the eye and then landed in my purse. See it there, all nestled in the pocket?

Don't be jealous of my four-year-old Target purse and mismatched billfold. Not everybody can handle this much awesome.

My nephew made me this (isn't it amazing?!):

And my brother made me this:

Chocolate cake: real. Poop: fake.

He also gave me these:
Seeeeeea monkeeeeeys!
I had to include this photo. Look at Curtis trying to look all sweet, like he never forgot my birthday.

So there you go - and I didn't even include any pictures of the comedy club, the bouncing around like white girls dancing, the huge birthday feast my mom cooked, or the mammoth tray of Pad Thai that my sister-in-law made (suffice it to say, I gained like twenty pounds over the weekend). All in all, it was a fantastic celebration with the best family and friends a girl - er, thirty-year-old woman - could ask for.

And I mean ... I got plastic dog doo and sea monkeys. WIN.


  1. Wow that he did a great job with that cake! looks yummy! Happy Birthday!!!

  2. Rita, I've been so busy with this *darn* newborn baby thing that I haven't had a chance to say Happy Birthday - or maybe I have, I can't remember anymore... sleep deprived.

    Looks like 30 will be awesome, I'm 34 next month - I'm paving the way for you :)

  3. Looks like lots of fun! I'm glad the weekend made up for Curtis' memory lapse. And I personally feel that dog doo is a must-have in every house - never ending pranks and enjoyment!

  4. wow, look at all the food! happy 30th :)

  5. Happy 30s its all down hill from here honey! ;)

  6. Awwww sounds like so much fun!! What a great way to celebrate! Happy bday again!

    Sidenote - that poop looks SO real! Don't know if I could have eaten it!!

  7. Happy 30th Birthday!!! I feel like you are milking the birthday wishes here, Rita... HA! Just kidding. :)

    Enjoy those sea monkeys for about 5 minutes. At least, that's how long mine lasted as a kid.

  8. Now, you know how to do a birthday!!

  9. Hopefully all the celebrating made up for the lapse earlier. It sure does look like you had a lot of fun. And poo on a cake? How perfect is that?

  10. kind of looks like you had a rad and DELICIOUS birthday! that is the way to do it!

    and love the pic of you and the cherry!!!!

  11. Super YUM to the ice cream cake. But TRIPLE points to your brother for the awesome poop cake. Seriously, that was so gross I laughed out loud.

    Love that shrimp hit you in the eye and then landed in your purse. Bet he couldn't do that again if he tried.

    Mostly I'm glad to hear you had a fantastic birthday weekend. Everyone should get to enjoy their birthday that much.

    Oh, and cute pic of you with the cherry. Love how you colored the cherry, looks cool.

  12. You have awesome family members.

    LOVE that thing your nephew made. Yum. And the poop cake is downright amusing.

  13. happy birthday!! it looks like you had a blast!! and let me just tell you, our brothers are cut from the same mold!! mine totally do that kind of stuff too....what is the fascination with fake poop??

  14. Happy Belated Birthday!
    Love the Poo Poo cake! Reminds me of the kitty litter cake I made for Halloween one year...

  15. Sounds like the best birthday weekend ever! The poo cake definitely took it over the top. You are one lucky woman! :-)

  16. Looks like an amazing birthday. And, the poop cake? Killing me. I had to do a total double take. I'm just glad it was frosting, cause otherwise that would be one helluva joke. ;)

  17. OMG, You are the luckiest GIRL I know! Looks it definitely was the best birthday! Hope they get better every year although that will be hard to top.

  18. And you do NOT have to share the sea monkeys or dog poo with your kids. Those are YOUR special presents, just for your sweet YOUNG self. I'm glad you had a good one.
