It’s my birthday!


I need someone to make this magic rainbow unicorn cake for me. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? I think a 46-year-old deserves the birthday cake of her 12-year-old dreams, don’t you?

Usually on my birthday, I take the day off and just go do whatever it is that I want to do. Today, however, I’ll be going to the cell phone store and spending an hour getting my daughter a new phone, then I’m going to drive 2.5 hours away so I can watch my daughter play volleyball all weekend long. Yay Parenting!!


Anyway, so there won’t be much time for a celebration, but that’s okay because here’s what I’ve figured out: when you regularly and consistently Treat Yo’ Self, you don’t need others to do it for you when your birthday rolls around. Aaaaand there might possibly be a birthday party in the works for me next weekend anyway, so we will celebrate, oh yes, we will celebrate…it just won’t be this weekend.

Here’s to 46. Happy Birthday to me!

    Hi, Jill! I’m so glad you’re back to blogging! I’m a long-time reader, first-time commenter, and I wanted to say how much I enjoy your posts. I hope you find time to have a little birthday celebration today. Or, at least, some cake. 🙂 -Beckie

    Happy birthday Jill! You don’t look 46 (whatever that means–I’m always told that, so I’m passing the compliment along to you, cause it’s true!)

      Haha! Thanks! I’ve got my parents to thank for my youthful-looking genes!

    Happy birthday to you!!! Yes, cake can even be eaten while driving. But you will have plenty of time to celebrate while watching volleyball. Sneak in a favorite magazine or something (I would bring my knitting 🙂 ) And you do “rook Mah-verous, dahlink!!

      My 12 year old self would have been over the moon for this cake!! My 46 year old self just wants a really good decadent cake no matter the shape. 🙂 Thank you for the birthday wishes!

    Happy Birthday!! You look phenomenal. Are you sure you’re 46? No wrinkles? You are one lucky ducky. Enjoy your day.

      Thank you! My parents have always looked young for their age and luckily they passed it down to me too!
