the backwards birthday

Oh birthdays, i heart you. Am i the only one? I feel as though the more birthdays one has its become less appealing to "celebrate". I don't dread turning another year "older". I still say i'm 25. hahaa. okay that's pushing it, maybe 30? hehee. Just don't ask me because i do forget that i'm 33. Nevertheless, birthdays are fun! ( and so are my bangs! i got bangs and a trim for my birthday, woot woot) We should all celebrate another awesome year, the WHOLE year :)

And so i did. a bit backwards if you will. 
- you see, i turned 33 on the 15th of this month. had a nice lunch with my family at cheesecake factory ( a huge fav of mine :)
- mr.handsome shot my birthday photo (1st photo above) on the 16th (little r was napping in the stroller next to me -off camera- so he missed this shot :(
- made my birthday cake on the 17th
- decorated said cake and shared slices of it by delivering it to family just like the cake fairy would do all on the 18th.

whew! now that's stretching a birthday celebration a bit ha!

well i wasn't going to let my birthday month go by without a cake and pretty pictures. it's such a therapy for me. i don't really know why because it does seem stressful baking a huge cake ( never done that before, i'm more of a cupcake connoisseur :) and in true ombre style. And then on top of that play with the cake and style it but i was giddy as a school girl meeting justin bieber ;P

i found this vintage napkin while thrifting on my "birthday thrifting adventure". i love making excuses to celebrate. birthday thrifting, birthday starbucks, birthday dinner etc. :) once a year ain't too bad.

oh pretty layers. extra tasty when they are in pink colors.

i triple heart those wooden buttons, satin spools of ribbon and the doily the cake pedestal is on. also a birthday thrift find. digging around pays off :)

oh my. 

everything i love in a cake. moist vanilla cake + layers of vanilla custard filling + whipped cream frosting ( even better tasting than cool whip) although thinking back now it could've used like 2 extra inches of that stuff, oh we don't count calories on a birthday week! hehee.

and my birthday flowers... awwww. he gets me. 

and little r still napping. it's what he does best :)

my first birthday as a mama. what a good year. this little guy is growing up too fast. 9 months and our lives are so blessed with him in it. the happiest baby ever. makes my heart so happy getting to know him better each day. he's pretty awesome. :)

here's to more birthdays. more love. more flowers. more pretty pictures. more blessings. more happy memories. and maybe even more naps ;)

happy unbirthday to you lovely,
(oh, we have extra cake left over for you ;)

Aww.. I love everything about your birthday!! And you don't look a day over 25!! I will forever tell people I am twenty-something. My aunt still tells people she is forty something, although I am fairly certain she is high fifty something.... we won't repeat that though.

I love the thrift finds you had... everything looked yummy!!

Happy Birthday!
