Hubby said today felt like an un-invented day. It didnâ€™t feel like the weekend, and it sure didnâ€™t feel like a Monday!
Today my niece Breanna turned the beautiful age of 7. I remember being 7 is was such a great year in my life, lots of playing,laughing, sugar, and joy! I hope this is a great one for her as well.
We had a pool party at my Momâ€™s (AKA Grandama Divaâ€™s) house. Here is the birthday girl, and her sister Noel who just had to get a picture as well, what a HAM!
While sitting by the pool I enjoyed some watermelon and a cool refreshing beverage, I think I have had my share of adult beverages for a while!!!
The Birthday girl could not handle all the camera attention, she wouldnâ€™t strike any more poses, even with her favorite Aunt Bobbi !! She was too cute all day!!
We laid out by the pool for a good 3 hours and then went inside for some grub!! I was smart this time and drank lotâ€™s of water to keep well hydrated!
My Step Dad Rich grilled up some AMAZING Carne Asada! I am not a big red meat eater, but back in the day when I ate whatever I felt like I would eat this stuff a lot!! Itâ€™s like a staple here in SO CAL!
We also had some potato salad, another addiction of mine!!! I made one taco with a little meat, grilled onions, salsa, avocado, and some cheese. I also had some potato salad on the side and ended going back up for some seconds.
I was in charge of the birthday cake!! In honor of the TSL challenge I made it all from scratch. I had all the ingredients on hand to make a vanilla cake with chocolate frosting! This was the first time I have ever made a cake from scratch, I will be doing this forever. It was easy and cheap!
The cake was ok, I think I have to use a little more butter, but the frosting was perfect.
I actually donâ€™t like cake, but because I made it I just had to have a little sliver. I also had a serving of some Light Moose Track ice-cream that we brought. This ice-cream is my favorite, (vanilla ice cream with pb cups and fudge).
What an exhausting yet fun 3 day weekend, I am ready to get in my jammies and curl up with Hubby in front of the TV!!!
Lots to come in the morning!!
