Coffee, Coffee and more Coffee

Several weeks ago, when Mallory discovered that my birthday was coming up she began planning a party for me.

Her first order of business was to select a theme and she picked a good one.


She picked iKeith to be her party planning assistant.  I asked her if she interviewed him for the job and she said no because he had money.

Watch out world!  This girl is going to be running companies...or countries someday.  Mark. My. Words!

They held secret meetings and eventually let Alex in on the planning.  He had a very important job which was tricking me into cleaning their room so that they could wrap my presents.

I fell for it hook, line and sinker!

I guess Starbucks was in on the planning too because they sent me a coupon for a free cup of joe on my birthday.

At school, my dear friend Margaret gave me a card and a gift.  She really gets me!

We went to dinner and I accidentally ordered a Margarita as big as my head.  I say accidentally because it was a medium and there where three other sizes that were larger.

It was delicious and I don't remember much about my evening after I opened my presents.  I have to re-watch Parenthood because even thought I tweeted about it....I don't remember what happened.  I keep thinking I watched an episode of Everyone Loves Raymond.  Or maybe I dreamt that part.

My family.....did a fantastic job with my gifts!!  To say that I was thrilled was an understatement!

I can't wait to tell you about the Aero Press coffee maker!  But you'll have to follow my food blog to hear about that one.  The Rookie Foodie.

Then as if on cue.....the next day I got this in the mail from a local dentist.



  1. hahahahaha sounds like a great birthday!! and it's not quite 9 am but that marg looks AMAZING!

  2. As you know, I have recently become a coffeeaholic. Well, I'm sort of other kinds of aholic too, but I now can't survive without my cup of joe in the morning. So I think this birthday of yours sounds just about perfect.

    I would also like a margarita the size of my head. Right now.

  3. How fun! Now, you need to go back to that restaurant and order the large one. ;)

  4. I'm totally laughing out loud at the note from the dentist office!

    Our baby girls are so sweet with their party and present planning. Cady is the same way.
