Celebrate : My Birthday

Posted by



I turned 30 this june 24th. That makes me a Cancer, intuitive, dependable, moody? Anyway I thought it was a great idea to work my astrological sign into my birthday treat decor. Blake used a crab punch to great effect, gluing some to the ends of toothpicks and sprinkling them around the table. Everything was delicious, my favorite was the chocolate bread pudding, the strawberries and cookies were great too. They also gave me a copy of my horoscope...maybe there is more bread pudding in my future?

  • Woohoo...Happy Birthday to you! Yummy looking goodies there. I think my tummy is am also a Cancer, July 9th. Hope you had a spectacular Birthday!!!

  • A belated, "Happy Birthday" to you, Nick! As a fellow Cancerian (just after Joanne, July 10th for me) this is most inspiring. The crabs are pretty cute and the bread pudding would be perfect... warm, comforting, homey...just like we Cancerians like. Right? Cheers on your new decade! :)

  • Happy Belated Birthday Nick!

  • Happy Birthday! Such a cute little crabs!!!

  • Happy belated birthday, Nick, from another U of M alum. Love the contrasting colors in the photograph.

    I've been making some brilliant hair ornaments recently with Martha Stewart's gorgeous glitter. I think they'd be great to have on your show.
