Happy birthday to you!

Fruit tart cake that my mom used to always make.
Sugar cookie dough, cream cheese, and fresh fruit... Delicious!

After eating dinner at Felix in Orange Circle we had our dessert in the park.

Happy birthday to my amazing sister, Summer. She turns the big 2-8 today and spent half of the day in Cali and the other half in az. In order to celebrate, Summer, Steve, Anne, Jesse, Kipp, and Nickee all came out to visit and go to Disneyland with Jessica and me. It was an amazing weekened filled with laughter, creeping, hugs, beaching, walking (sometimes running from ride to ride), eating (lots of eating), and much much much more.

We did Summer's birthday dinner in Orange and had dessert in the park right next to the restaurant. I had made a fruit tart (two actually) for my sisters bday, but forgot to bring the candles and toppers that I had made for a special effect. (I designed them to my liking inm Illustrator and then printed them out, folded,  and glued them to some tooth picks). So we got to eat the tart in a park in Orange, but my presentation was lost! To make up for it, I set up the second tart tonight and snapped a couple photos for you to enjoy! So let's just pretend these pictures are from the same night and I didn't forget the candles, ok?

And here are some fun photos from the Disneyland adventure. It truly is a very happy place. :)

If you know me personally, then you know that I am a huge Harry Potter nerd. My friend Cortney sent me a message today with a link to this image (which is a take off of the "Keep Calm and Carry On" posters) and I loved the idea, but wanted to try my own take on it. Although Gryffindor is my obvious favorite  house, I wanted to be fair so I included Slytherin, Hufflepuff, and Ravenclaw in the mix too. Enjoy and let me know which poster is your favorite, if you have plans to see the movie, and how you are celebrating the end!

Took some time to make a birthday card for my mom, but alas... the printer is broken. I get to be in AZ with her today, but if I can't hand her a hard copy of it I guess I will just give an electronic version. How green of me, right?

Well, Happy Birthday to my beautiful-caring-kind-loving-silly-sweet-lilfella-mother. Let's get this Mimapalooza started!!!
