It's official, I'm an old fart!

My birthday celebration began yesterday, thanks to my wonderful co-workers. I love you guys! They "surprised" me with a beautiful cake and giftcard to one of my favorite stores, that's right-Victoria's Secret. Yesssss!!! Unfortunately, I didn't think to take a picture of the cake before I dug into it, oops. Here's the cake, just a couple of minutes after the madness began. Lucky for me, I'm not working today.




This is the beautiful cake Arthur got for me today to celebrate this horrible day, the day of my birth 26 years ago. Ugh! I can't believe I used to get excited about birthdays, now I dread them. :( At least this Baskin Robbins ice cream cake was delicious. I very much enjoyed eating it, and I'm sure I'll enjoy it for days to come. Thanks Arthur, you're the best!


I know I look a bit psychotic in this picture, but that's kinda what I was going for. Psycho birthday girl ready to cut her cake. "Hurry and take the picture already, geez!"


Chloe and me on my "special" day.

An old fart? Does that mean the smell lingers on?

Anyway, happy birthday. Looking forward to reading about your crazy celebratory antics.

Happy birthday, Tara. I'm with you on dreading the b-day. Uch. Totally different from when we were kids. Weird feeling, huh?

Anyways, I'm glad you had a fun day.

Happy Birthday!! That was very nice of your friends at work to have a party for you. I love your Baskin Robbins cake. It looks really yummy! Those long candles give it just the right effect.

Love,
MOM

Happy Happy Birthday Tara Dear! Geez, you make it sound like you are SOOO old...like 35 or something. :) You're only 26! I remember back when I was 26...it seems like it was only back in April...oh wait, it was. So if you're old, what does that make me???? Ready for a nursing home and Depends?
