Happiness is a Hello Kitty blanket (and leftover cake)


I was going to try and do another "Let's get real" post today, but I just couldn't get it right no matter how many times I attempted it.   So here's a cute photo of Sammy loving on his new fuzzy Hello Kitty blanket, which is actually bath wrap of some kind that my mother-in-law got me for my birthday (but was made for someone about 6" shorter than me--not that I'm all that modest, but that thing left nothing to the imagination).  In other news, Captain Husband turned 34 years young on Friday, so I baked him a cake:
It was my first time making pineapple upside down cake, but I was determined to do it, especially as CH had informed me that it was one of his favorite cakes a few years ago.  Unfortunately, due to deployments and other separations, I haven't really had the opportunity to actually make him a cake for his birthday so I thought that this would be a good way to celebrate being in the same zip code and all.  I have to admit that I cheated a bit and used a yellow cake mix rather than making the whole thing from scratch, but CH didn't seem to mind at all (here's the recipe I used if you're interested).  What's your favorite kind of cake?

and
 then, she {snapped}

Looks yum! My birthday cake is a Black Forest cake - dark chocolate with cherry pie filling and melted chocolate on top - to die for! Or at least well worth turning another year older!

Happy Birthday Jim!! And when I was at Auto Zone with Rob this weekend I saw Hello Kitty floor mats and thought of you...

Yay, for cheating and using cake mixes. That is why they started offering cake mixes in the first place, to save time, effort, and clean up. ;)

Happy birthday CH!!
