I turned 26 (wahoo)

Hello. If you want to see pictures from my birthday, this is the post for you. My birthday landed on a Sunday this year (which, in my humble opinion, is lame). It was fast sunday too. Double lame. So to decrease the amount of lameness, I had a delicious breakfast of toast, bacon, eggs, OJ, and milk.

I was the only presidency member there that day in primary, so it was a bit hectic to say the least. Thankfully I had a ton of help from some lovely volunteers who sat in with the kids during sharing time. Sharing time itself went well, I suppose. It was on baptism, and little did I know (until the following Friday) one of the kids was going to get baptized on Saturday.

Anyway. On to the pictures.

I received some awesome gifts, among which was Ticket to Ride (YES!) and an awesome mini bundt cake pan I've been eyeing for a while.

There is something very peculiar about this next head and arms look ginormous compared to the rest of my body and it looks like my hands are doing some sort of gangster-like sign. And guess, what (wait, you can see for yourself) I did not make my cake this year. It is rather sad, but since it was only going to be David and I, I bought a cold stone cake instead. I've made my cake every year since I was 10 or so...until now. 

Self portrait. 

I chose to have 8 candles...2 plus 6.

For some reason I wanted to prove my cake-candle blowing out ability so I moved the cake back a foot or two. It was still incredibly easy. Next year? 27 candles from 3 feet away. Just kidding.

Note how the inside of the cake looks much less delicious than advertisements lead you to believe. There is also a discouraging amount of cookie dough inside. 

PS, David was there, but for some reason he didn't get documented. :( Boo.

I was just going to comment on your dress! I love it!

It looks like your birthday was fun, even though it was on fast Sunday :(

Did the cake at least taste really good?

I had that same cake at a friend's party a few years ago and was so not impressed. It was actually kind of nasty lol. I'm glad that I am not the only one not impressed. :))). You look great!

I'm sad that you didn't make your own cake!! But since it was Fast Sunday, that makes things more complicated!

I love you and am glad you had a wonderful birthday!! XOXOXOXXO
