Happy Birthday, Mom!

We celebrated my Mom's 50th Birthday today. We had a BBQ at our house. I made my Mom her favorite, strawberry angel food cake and also made some "Sprinkles" cupcakes. Tim & I went to "Sprinkles" in LA. They have the world's best cupcakes. After we got home, I found the "Sprinkles" cupcake mix at Williams Sonoma. They were good...but so rich! For my Mom's birthday present I gave her a special surprise. My parents just got some new bookshelves and she's been asking me to help her decorate the tops of the bookshelves. Last Thursday, while she was gone, I went over and decorated the bookshelves. I was hoping that she would be surprised and excited, but the reaction I got was even better. My sister, Erika, called and said, "Mom saw the bookshelves and she's bawling. She loves them, but she can't talk right now. She's crying too hard!" I couldn't have asked for a better reaction. I'm glad that my Mom liked her surprise! (Actually, this is my Mom's response to most things. She's pretty easy to move to tears!) Happy Birthday, Mom! You are the most amazing woman that I know. I hope you had a great day!

Nice acting!
