Last night, I celebrated my 28th birthday with my family in Arkansas. My mom thinks I'm too old for family birthday parties, but I think that's crazy. Last year, we didn't have the traditional birthday family get-together and it made me a little sad. So my mom baked me a Vegan Carrot Cake with Coconut Cream Cheese Frosting this year to make up for it:
This was soooooo good. It was super-moist and chock full of pecans, carrots, pineapple chunks, and coconut flakes. It may be fall, but this definitely whisked us away to the tropics for a bit. We also had vegan tacos (my family had the meat kind though), but I didn't take pictures because I was too hungry.
My Me-maw, Granny and Pa, mom and dad, and best friend Nathan were all there. I got an iPod from my parents!
I'm a little slow on the technology front, so this is my first MP3 player. I'm so excited! I also got money and a batch of the last summer tomatoes (green and red) from Granny and a cute little light-up fairy box from Me-Maw (I collect fairy stuff).
Tonight, I will celebrate my big day all over again with a Dead Victorian Southern Belle Tea Party. I promise to have pics posted by Sunday!
