Default Reduced to Hostess Cupcakes...

Thanks everybody for the Birthday Wishes! Merman surprised me by starting that Happy Birthday thread. And nope, no cruise docs in the Birthday Card. Mother Nature did give me a show of strength though to remind everyone that it's not Spring yet.

I came home yesterday afternoon with little sunburn after a 78 degree day at the lake. This afternoon, the temperature dropped to 28 degrees, and an ice storm is still in progress. It took me 3 times as long to get home, 4 times if you count the minutes that I spent chopping the ice off the windows with a credit card. (Texans are ill prepared for freezing temperatures, let alone anything white that drops from the sky.)

So, instead of a nice birthday dinner with family, topped off with a huge slice of moist, rich Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Icing I was forced to settle for Chocolate hostess cupcakes from the convenience store.

And NO, you can never miss eating cake on your Birthday! It's the BEST excuse EVER!

Chopping ice with a credit card!!?? ROTFL!! I agree about the never missing celebrating with birthday cake. In '98 the year of the infamous Montreal Ice Storm, it was my daughter's 14th birthday during the 8 day blackout. We managed to find a restaurant with power, and celebrated her birthday with a Jos Louis (Quebec version of a Hostess cupcake), and a sparkler candle. A memorable occasion!

Hope it wasn't the credit card you use to pay for your cruises. That would be tragic. Sorry about your birthday cake. You'll have to just have another birthday celebration so you can have cake.

I'm a firm believer in having a birthday "week" at the very least.....go out there and get that birthday cake! Happy belated birthday.

I agree with ML, go for the belated birthday cake and a week long celebration!

I've done the credit card thing when I have one of those moments late fall and forget to put the scraper in the car!

Not fun, treat yourself to a scraper, oh, can you buy those in Texas?? Maybe Lisa will have to send you one!!! :-) I know Wisconsin has them!!!
