The Birthday Girl (A Day Late)

Last year I was all whiny about my birthday because it was a big one. Huge one. But this year, I'm sort of used to being an old fart. What are you going to do? Birthdays come whether you want them to or not, so you just have to roll with it.

I started off the day with a trip to Tim Hortons. For those of you that don't have them in your area, it's a fast food coffee shop, bakery, adder of 20 pounds. Think about it. Donuts available through a drive-thru window. What's more dangerous than that?

Next stop was Urban Farmhouse's going out of business sale at her brick and mortar storefront (she'll still have her online store open and will be doing shows). Fantastic sale and I was utterly surprised to see people standing in line waiting for the store to open when I got there. Here's a peek at something fun that I bought, but I'll leave the other stuff for when I find a place in my house for them.


Then off to have lunch with a friend, followed by a stop at the cupcake place to pick up some cupcakes for dinner. I don't think I have ever gone without cake on my birthday and I wasn't about to start now.

I picked up this yummy salted caramel cupcake. I didn't get to try it, because my husband scarfed it down before I had a chance to point my fork in that direction, but the scent was heavenly.


I also bought a cotton candy one for my son and a birthday cake one for me. It probably would have made more sense for me to photograph the birthday cake one, but it was just the run of the mill white icing with sprinkles and we've all seen that before.

I'm so glad that cake eaten on your birthday has no calories. Right? It does work that way doesn't it?

  2. You are definitely correct. There are no calories consumed on your birthday...no matter what's on the menu. Sounds like a perfect way to spend your birthday. Happy "belated" birthday!

  3. Happy Birthday to you! I celebrated my birthday a few weeks ago and I am trying to remember if I had a cake or cupcake or anything??? Hmmm...maybe a sign of age that I can't remember? ~Patti

  6. Okay, I quickly clicked over and you're saying that you hit 50 last year? No way! I think you're just telling people that so they compliment you on looking so young. I totally see right through your little game! But, I'll play along if it makes you feel better. ha!
    Happy Birthday. And I'm so glad that I found you this past year.
    Your Friend, m.

  7. Happy belated birthday to you. Sounds like a perfect way to spend your special day...eating cake and shopping. I have one coming up next week and this sounds like a good plan to me. Yikes, I actually have to stop and think about how old I am!

  11. I checked the guidebook and when someone else eats your birthday cupcake, you are automatically granted a 48 hour birthday extension. So maybe another spin through the drive-thru?

    Happy Birthday!!

    That Salted Caramel Cupcake looks "to die for" delicious. To bad you didn't get a bit, shame on hubby for being a piggy wiggy with it.

  16. Sounds like you had a great birthday, Pam. I don't think twice about my birthday- my hubby usually forgets anyway-even WITH reminders...lol

    I'll bet your son loved the cotton candy one, didn't he? Blessings- xo Diana

  20. You're not getting older, you're getting better! 51 is the new 25 1/2 right? I must be 26 1/2.

    Happy belated Birthday Pam!

  21. You are correct. Cake, cupcakes have NO calories or sugar when eaten on your birthday. ABSOLUTELY, NONE. So I hope you enjoyed every mouthful. HAPPY Belated BIRTHDAY. Take care.

  22. Retail Shopping+Birthday Cupcake+ Zero Calories Consumed Because of Hubby= Great Birthday!

  23. Happy Birthday! Those prints are of paintings by one of my favorite painters of all time-- Bouguereau--master of painting a child's face, and some really pretty women. No one could ever do it quite like him.
