Happy Birthday To Me!

That’s right! It’s my birthday. How will I be spending my special day? Well, since I already partied like it was 1999 (hence Sunday’s hangover post), I’m going on a shopping spree! What will I be shopping for? Oh, all kinds of great stuff: niaouli, petitgrain, ravensara….

You see, my entire family wanted me to feel extra special needed today, so they all decided to get sick last night. Aren’t they just the best?! Yep, everybody’s sick except mommy. (I guess I should count my blessings, there’s nothing worse than being sick and having to be mom to a bunch of sickies.) So, I’m putting on the lab coat and working up an antiviral potion today.

An antiviral treatment is something that’s been on The List for the last couple of months, so…no time like the present. Of course, the potion will eventually end up in the shop. I may even conduct a trial, so if you’re interested in playing guinea pig, leave me a comment with your email address. I don’t know if it’ll be a free trial yet – some of the ingredients are crazy expensive – but trials are usually offered at a greatly reduced price. I’ll get back to you on that one. In the mean time, stay well, and have a piece of cake, or a cake pop for me!

The little partier pictured at the beginning of this post is one of my takes on Bakerela’s cake pops. If you haven’t checked out Bakerela, be warned…simple cupcakes will never suffice again. We’re talking extreme cuteness and serious sweetness. They’re actually too sweet for me, but they’re a guaranteed hit at any party.

I'd love to try it but I work from home so I'm really not exposed to much anymore (yay)!

On a side note I made the cake pops (without the pop) for Christmas and they were a huge success! They were also way too sweet for me :3 I ate 1 lol

Happy Birthday you party woman! It seems like the Mom's Law that whenever it's our time to have fun, people we take care of get sick. I'm perfectly willing to share some of my ice cream and Jello with you (I'm already getting sick of them...but on the upside I've lost 4 lbs!)
