Happy Birthday to me! And the Saddest Party Ever... :)

 It was my birthday yesterday!! I love my birthday like a little kid, you guys. And this year was the best in a long time, I was absolutely spoiled, as you can see in the picture above. That flamingo, right?! It's happily resting in a pot of dirt in my living room for now, where I used to keep a lovely plant, before I murdered it in cold blood... :(

The best part of the day was at Wednesday night bible study, where the girls at church decorated my usual spot with a pink table cloth and confetti and all kinds of pink treats and presents. I felt like crying! They are such special, wonderful friends. They cheer me up like nothing else! And God even ended the day with a gorgeous pink sunset, which I like to think was just for me. (Thank you, Creator!)
So Ace's first birthday came and went recently, and we ended up having his little party on my birthday because it was the only available day, like ever. I wanted something simple, a cute little airplane themed party with a few friends.
Uh, simple was an understatement. It was the worst! The most pitiful attempt at a party I've ever made...poor Ace. I had planned to use this awesome idea from Pinterest for pouring melted frosting onto your cake to make it look like fondant. (Genius!) And then make mini-mallow clouds and paper airplanes coming out of it. Darling, right?

 But instead this happened:
Bahaha!! I mean, really?! I couldn't have TRIED to make a worse disaster!! But I totally served it anyway, because cake. And it's good for me to have a nice blow to the ego now and then. :o) I welcome the humility with open arms! The one good thing (and seriously, the only decoration in sight. So. sad.) were these happy little poster board clouds that I cut out and hung above the cake table. They make me really happy! And I hung a paper airplane garland that I'd made for a previous issue of Fresh Style Magazine up in front of them. They looked so cute! 
 Anyway, who needs decorations when you have this to look at: :)
Don't you wanna pinch it?!?
Ace, I'm so sorry, love, I'll make it up to you with an awesome party some other year!

Here's to our failures! And finding humor in humility. :O)

Love you!

  1. I think my Mom used to make that same cake. I called it "crummy" cake because it was so moist, it fell apart. It was so tastey! I could have eaten it every day. Looks like "Ace" loved it! Thanks for the reminder to embrace life, even when it turns out differently than we planned!

  2. Thanks so much for sharing this! It's kind of awesome to know that people like you (who I assume are all perfect and amazing) occasionally have the same pinterest fails as the rest of us! Also, WHO NEEDS CAKE... YOU HAD WATERMELON... seriously, a watermelon alone would make for the best party ever... (no jokes, I once asked for a watermelon from father Christmas... it was the ONLY thing I asked for that year... totally got it too!)

    1. Haha, you're so funny! I make mistakes practically every time I make something, it's crazy. And yes, the watermelon was definitely the star of the show that day!

  3. The cake is totally still on theme, it's just a rough landing cake. Happy belated birthday to you and Ace :D

  5. Love the theme and the rough landing according to Breenah A. We love you to death, we adore whatever you do. Happy birthday! We both share the same sign that's probably why I relate so much to how you feel. Enjoy your birthday month.

  6. Happy Birthday to you and Ace, Disney. You are so funny :-) I am sure that little Ace wouldn't have even noticed anything wrong with the cake or the lack of tablecloth. It's the friends and loved ones that count in the end.

  7. You are DARLING, what an adorable birthday picture of you. And that baby has no idea what fondant looks like. He just knows that his birthday cake was delicious and the people who shared it with him LOVE him. xo
