33 already?

Last week I celebrated my 33rd birthday. I don't really mind getting older, because so many people always tell me that I don't look that old. :)

We had some of Justin's family in town, so Justin took the day off work (and the next day too) and we celebrated all day. We went to breakfast at IHOP and then headed down to the Kemah boardwalk for a few hours. We took Jacob on the train there and due to a problem with the first train we got on, we got to take him on the ferris wheel for free. He loved both of them!

After spending a few hours in Kemah it was time to head back home so I could get everything ready for Bunco. I agreed to host Bunco this month way back in October last year. At first I was a little bummed to be hosting and in charge on my birthday, but then I was pretty excited to be able to throw myself a big birthday party. Another one of my friends has the exact same birthday, although she is quite a bit younger, so I made each of us a giant cupcake as a birthday cake for our dessert that night.
My cake is red velvet with cream cheese frosting, Kaytryn's is a dark chocolate cake with a fluffy frosting that I made chocolate on the bottom and left vanilla for the top (but colored it pink).

I was completely overwhelmed with birthday wishes on facebook this year and couldn't respond to everyone. But it really was a great birthday!

Looks like it was a busy, but fun birthday!

Happy Birthday! Thanks for posting the picture of you with the cakes. From the first picture, it just looked like you had really small plates, but it was actually really big cupcakes! They look delicious!
