Let Me Eat Cake!

This pretty much sums up my day. Cake = Happiness.bite that cake

But let me backtrack, Earlier today I snacked on a fruit salad that I intended to be a whole tupperware full, but oddly disappeared without any leftovers?! Hmmm.IMG_8578 (800x600) (800x600)

These bars are from the HLS swag. I’m bad with bars in that I open up more and than one to “taste” them before deciding which one I want.IMG_8580 (800x600) (800x600)

Then Ben and I headed to my mom’s for a BBQ. Ben’s birthday is Wednesday and we were celebrating today!

My brother Michael made the cake.gooey chocolate cake

    New reader! Saw ya on HRG! I like you! Haha, you seem pretty awesome. Especially because you use terms such as “F it” and you say you run but you’re a slow runner. So now I like you even more. I look forward to reading some of your posts tonight.

    And looking at all of your old pumpkin recipes. Pumpkin yogurt, heck yes!

    Nice to meet ya!

    Happy Birthday, Ben!

    We’ve decided that we’re going to grill all fall and winter long, so the summer will never end in the Lear household! We will keep hanging on until we can’t anymore. I will miss the watermelons though. Very much. [Sad face.]

    Homemade cake=the best. I can’t remember the last time I had one, maybe next year for my birthday…but I’m an only child so I always have a ton of leftovers. Maybe I can make a mini-cake? Great, now I want one :P. Looks fun and delicious!

    that cake looks awesomely delicious!

    cake and cupcakes seem to be an obsession of mine lately. i don’t get them in my neck of the woods (unless i were to bake an entire batch…to myself…um…no), so as soon as i’m in a city that has a cupcakery (??) i’m all over it.

    Happy Birthday to Ben!!

    As much as I can’t wait for the fall, I will miss grilling outside. I think I need to find a place to live where I can do that all year round. :-)

    & toooo funny about the bars…i do the same thing. i just get mad then and nervous that the one i didn’t choose will get stale…so i end up having both. lol
