happy little birthday month!!

april is pretty much the best month of the year! april 1st was my birthday.... and in my family we celebrate birthday month! birthday month rocks! today my husband made pancakes for breakfast and he is going to yoga with me this afternoon... because it's my birthday month! 

so i  received some awesome gifts for my birthday! i got this cute little cupcake tea towel from my mother in law. she always manages to find the cutest little cupcake goodies!

my sister in law gave me this great cupcake stand! i've always wanted this cupcake stand but it's one of those items that you can't really justify buying for yourself but would love and adore as a gift so i was soooo excited to get it for my birthday!
when i got home from work on my birthday, this little flower bouquet was waiting for me on my door step! it was from my two super sweet sisters (i'm actually an only child but my best friend, her 4 sisters and i are all like family so we call each other sisters).

i was so excited  to get flowers from them (especially since one of them moved to cabo a few months ago and i miss her too much) but i was confused about the flower arrangement. why would they send me a bouquet in the shape of a triangle? after 3-4 hours of staring at this thing i realized what it was supposed to be!  can you guess by the picture?

it's a slice of cake! even though the florist is not as talented as this one, i thought this was the most thoughtful choice of flower arrangements ever and love them so much for it!
to top off my wonderful birthday, my husband and i picked up a couple slices of cake from the city deli by our house (i was gonna get a cupcake but they didn't look so hot). black forest and lemon coconut cake. yum.


  1. happy birthday! sounds like you had a wonderful day :) i had to laugh at the cupcake stand...why would wilton think it a great idea to make a stand which holds just 1 cupcake shy of 2 dozen? go figure...

  2. completely off topic...but i am an only child too! lol

  3. Happy Birthday Month! My man's birthday is April 1st and mine is April 30th. So he gets the first two weeks to celebrate and I get the last two weeks of the month. It's almost my turn!!

  4. Happy birthday although its a bit late. sorry! Nice presents you received I would love a cupcake stand

  5. How beautiful the flower cake is. Happy birthday month...mine is also in April, on the 22nd.
