(Okay, so technically now it’s my 26th birthday, the 28th. But since I was born at 12:21 am I didn’t want to miss a moment of my own party, even while I slept. As you were.)

Birthdays are a really big deal to me.

Anybody want to make me my birthday cake?




Didn’t think so.

For some reason nobody really wants to attempt making my birthday cake. It’s cool. I was planning on having a huge pile of donuts anyway. I may even stick candles in them.

But you know what I really want for my birthday? A comment cake. Layers and layers of comments from you. I want you to tell me the best thing that happened to you in the last week. Anything, everything. The best. I love it when you guys do that. It makes me happy. And I want to be happy on my birthday. So you know what to do.

Delurk you lurkers, save yourself a phone call IRL friends, let’s party. (Oh, and wish her a Happy Birthday too.)

Make this the best comment cake ever so that I don’t have to eat all those donuts, because you know I will.


  1. Happy Birthday!

    The best thing that happened to me this week is that my kid is no longer sick and we are once again getting a full night’s sleep each night. THAT IS AWESOME.

  3. I am no good at baking cakes (yet), but I could make you a superb salmon fillet.

    (Happy! Day of Cake, babe. I hope it’s an awesome one, filled with copious amounts of your favorite kind of frosting.)

  4. Happy Birthday, you!

    Good things … I had a fabulous romantic dinner with my husband on our third anniversary: 25 April. My daughter slept in her big girl bed. All night. Without falling out. My brand new mortgage just dropped down to 5.16% for five years. My mom gave me a compliment. Hooooooray!

    Happy Hoosier Birthday! I enjoy following your blog from the west side of Indy– Avon, to be exact! LOVE your observacations of Indiana and it’s people!


    Best thing in the last week.
    It was my birthday too. A big 36, over the hump my sister pointed out. Like getting older is an awful thing. Silly girl.
    We were able to get a babysitter and go for dinner. Dinner out, without the children, actually talking to each other without having to ask someone to sit on their bum, cut anyones food, remind them to use their manners, ask them to sit on their bum…did I say that, remind them not to blow bubbles in their drinks and too use their indoor voice.

    My 2 1/2 yr old also figured out how to use the pedals on the tricycle yesterday. That made my day.

  8. Happy birthday!

    best thing that has happend to me in the past week? … Hubby built some storage shelves in our linen closet! oh yes for me that is UBER exciting!!!!!!! HA

  9. Listen, I’m not going to lie. Even if I lived closer I wouldn’t make you a cake. I’m too intimidated by your mad baking skills. But I would bring something non-edible- like flowers or balloons.

    The best thing about the week? My cell phone works after a dip in the toilet. Yummy. I’m hungry just thinking about it.

    Happy Birthday!

    RG in ID’s last blog post..Nope, I’m not dead. But this almost was.

  15. If you didn’t live halfway across the country, I’d make you a cake. And frost it really nicely, too. The best thing that happened to me this week was that I invited to have lunch with Addison Road by the lead singer, Jenny. We’ve connected a little bit through her blog, and it was awesome to meet her in person and hang out with her for a couple hours.

    seven’s last blog post..We Have A Winner!

  16. Happy Birthday!

    The best thing to happen to me this week has been finding an amazing property to buy with my man, and getting approval from the bank! (still waiting to hear back on our offer though 🙁 )

  17. Here I am, 165 comments too late LOL Happy Birthday Miss Casey!

    As for the best thing that happened to me this week? We went for a glorious camping trip that turned into an adventure I’d rather not have had, but it also gave me the understanding that when things go completely bat**** insane around me? I can still keep my head and be a nurse when I need to be.

  18. Happy happy birthday! Hope it’s wonderful!!!

    The best thing that happened to me this past week was probably being able to recreate a craft that my great grandmother had made. It just made me feel good to think about my great grandmother in a way I could relate, even though she’s gone now. Wow, it really wasn’t as sad as that sounds!

  19. Happy Birthday!!
    The best thing that happened to me this past week was the whole day Friday. The weather was beautiful, I took a bike ride through Eagle Creek Park with a friend, went to Metropolis in Plainfield, and went to an Indians game. It was a perfect day. I hope today is a perfect day for you!

  20. Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaappy Birthday! I hope you’ve had a great day.

    The best thing that happened to me this last week….I started my period! Why, you ask, is that a good thing? Because I finally get to start the fertility meds again. Bring on the hot flashes, bring on the quints….I dare you!!!

  21. Happy Birthday!!! I have had a pretty crazy week… but one of the best was finding out I’m pregnant. I know! I’m sorry, geeeez but it is something that happened in the last week! **blowing baby dust at you** (sorry if I hit you in the eye with it 😛 )

    My good thing for the week: I finally managed to drag my fat butt out of bed at 6:00 in the morning to go for a run, instead of trying to fit it in somewhere during the busy day.

  32. Wow, I am #181. Happy Birthday!
    Best thing that happened to me in the last week? My daughter is still alive and I’ve survived all my medical testing. Now, can I survive the results? Here’s to hoping for a skinnier me someday in the near future. Until then, I’m happy to share some donuts with you!

  33. Happy Birthday!

    The best thing…I got a huge ugly project at work. I told my co-worker I would do the worst-looking sections because I am cool that way. Then my other co-worker found that she had already done the identical project for a different client last month…so all I had to do was copy and paste. Good karma!

    I hope it was fantastic. I see you’ve gotten many excellent layers on your comment cake. Those are the best, aren’t they? All that icing and NO CALORIES!! Hahaaa!!
