Early 40th Birthday with the Family!

Tomorrow, Paul and I are taking off on a road trip to Asheville, North Carolina to celebrate my 40th birthday (it's Friday!), so this will be my last post for a week. But before I leave, I wanted to share about my family birthday celebration with my parents last Saturday in Arkansas.

I requested pizza because it's the ultimate birthday food, so my mom prepped some dough, and we each added our own toppings. Mine had Tofurky Italian sausage, Daiya mozz, and every vegetable I could fit on it! Enjoyed with one of the new Blue Moon low-cal beers because my parents only stock low-carb beers these days. A perfect birthday supper!

After pizza, we did presents! My favorite part! My parents got me a new computer chair since I'm still working from home and sitting in a ratty old hand-me-down that's been destroyed by cats. This new chair a bungee chair, and there are slats that I'm hoping will deter the cats. My mom also ordered this awesome RBG shirt, and they got me some new Hokas! They also paid for my ticket to the Biltmore in Asheville, which we're planning to see this Saturday. 

After presents, it was cake time! My mom made an awesome 3-layer Oreo cake (pictured above). So good!

She also picked up some of the new Dairy Queen Non-Dairy Dilly Bars for us to try, so it was a two-dessert birthday. I remember loving the regular Dilly Bars as a kid, and it's so cool to be able to eat these again. They have a coconut ice cream base!

Family selfie! I had a great time with my parents. I know I say it all the time, but I really do have the best parents in the world. I don't know how I got so lucky.

I'll check back in when I return from Asheville!
