Birthday weekend!!

If you haven't heard, the past few weeks in the Peds ICU have been wearing me down, both physically and emotionally, I've been working 12-14 hour days every day, and I'm just exhausted......
So you can imagine how excited and surprised I was when I got home Friday night to find this waiting in the fridge!
No, Patrick didn't make it!
The cake is from Stax Bakery and if you ever visit, you must try it!
MMMMMMMMM.......more to follow!

Patrick spent the majority of Saturday morning waiting for a "special delivery"

His "sad face"

Now for more of the cake.....It was incredible. Seriously! It consisted of thin layers of chocolate cake with layers of chocolate mousse and white chocolate shavings on the outside. Yum!

Digging in..where to start???

It arrives!!!!!!

Patrick then entertained himself for most of the afternoon......

Saturday night we went out for a great dinner at Sassafras in Downtown Greenville.

I had pork loin with granny smith apple chutney, green beans and mac & cheese.

Patrick had the shrimp and grits. (no surprise!)

Cute little place and wasn't too crowded for Saturday night, although we had reservations....

Self portrait following dinner......The reason for no dark circles? I slept till noon!!!!!

Present time on Sunday!!!!

What could it be???

I look pretty rough in this picture, but I just had woken up.....I'm too excited to wait!

Yay!!!!! My beautiful kitchenaid mixer! Now what to bake???

Never let your husband loose with the dough hook. He might turn into Pirate-man!!!
