Friends And Cupcakes

Did you know that friends and cupcakes have a striking similarity? They're both delicious. Today, my friends gathered for a surprise (early) birthday lunch. I say 'surprise' loosely. Todd gave it all away last night. I almost snapped his head off, but I didn't. Good thing I like him. A lot.
It's amazing what gifts one can receive when someone truly knows your passions and your inner heart's desire. Cupcakes were in abundance. It was like manna falling from heaven.

My mom and sister were in on the surprise as well. Emily worked her fingers down to stubs trying to sand and 'shabby chic' my gift. Behind my back, she had each of my girls write the 3 things they love about me. I secretly think she sat on them and forced them to write something nice.

I love this necklace so much, I'm thinking of having it tattooed over my heart. I'm serious.

I have already eaten all 4 gourmet cupcakes (I let the rest of the family take a small nibble), baked a cake in the giant cupcake pan, and I've worn the necklace from the moment I opened it. A day lived to the fullest. A nice surprise.
