Her birthday was fun....

Hey, Everyone...hope all is going good with you and yours. 
Things are rockin' right along around here.
We are finally tired of FOR SALE BY OWNER
and will sign up with a realtor this week.
I feel like we will get so many more people coming thru.

As always, getting together with family is FUN..
Stacy's 44th birthday.


So many of the kids were coming and going, I didn't get very many photos.
Sorry, Stac....




David and Kathy....

they were leaving before I remembered to grab the camera....




 I didn't get many photos...
but sure proud of this one, Stacy with Drew...her oldest.





I made the infamous
STRAWBERRY MARGARITA CAKE
 for her birthday cake.


It was sooo good...

a perfect recipe.
Cute Andrea.....
 always has a smile.









Bailey Kay....
with such a cute hairdoo.....ALWAYS.


When I made the cake, I didn't have my camera...
I had left it at a Bunco game gathering 
sooo
I took photos of the whole cake on my PHONE CAMERA...

 ...but haven't figured out how to get the photos OFF my camera
and onto my LAP TOP.

sooo....
here is a  borrowed photo of the whole cake....








 This awesome photo belongs to ALYSSA at WHAT'S COOKING, LOVE?

"Thanks, Alyssa, for this wonderful recipe.

Not only is it delicious, it makes a
BEAUTIFUL BIRTHDAY CAKE...
for a
BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER.


I must admit..I couldn't find the STRAWBERRY MARGARITA MIX...
so I used a STRAWBERRY cake mix, regular margarita mix and I also added..
sweetened strawberries.


















It is probably the most moist cake I've ever made....
and really tasted great.

It did, indeed, make a PERFECT BIRTHDAY CAKE

 FOR THE PERFECT DAUGHTER. !!

bj, couldn't figure out how to contact you, except comments. You mentioned my work verification is on and I don't know what it is or how to turn it off. Can you help, please?

Good Morning, BJ, Oh, that cake looks sooooooo good, but then, I haven't yet had breakfast!! ha. Sounds like you had a wonderful birthday celebration. Just wanted to say, I think you have made the right decision regarding the sale of your home. As a realtor, I see this all the time, there are many, many reason why it is best to have someone to help you navigate through the sale of a property these days as selling a house is not what it was 20 or 25 years ago for so many reasons. You will most likely get more for your property as well. It sounds like you have done everything right regarding staging your home and clearing things out. Before you know it, you will be on your way to your new place, ready for new adventures in life. Read your blog everyday and enjoy it so much, Blessings, Linda

What a sweet day you all must have had and hope many more birthdays!

Sometimes a realtor can get you more exposure if they work their job thoroughly. Here's hoping!

Belated Happy Birthday wishes!!!

Good luck with the Realtor!

Such a pretty family! And I love that photo gallery in the background. Perfectly arranged black and whites - all nice and neat and hanging straight. My OCD side loves the perfection of that. I could never get them hung perfectly, though. Whoever did that deserves some chocolate!

belated Happy birthday to your daughter BJ!!!! I have to try that margarita cake recipe, that's the only cocktail I drink you know, so might as well eat it too! Have a lovely day!

Debby said...

That cake looks so good. You have so many beautiful people to celebrate birthdays with.
Hardly ever does for sale by owner work......glad you are listing with someone. Hope it sells soon.

Vee said...

Very pretty cake and it sounds delicious. Looks as if you got a lot of nice photos of the family! We bloggers must document!

Sue (Someones Mom) said...

Oh what I wouldn't give to have my mom make me a birthday cake again. Of course she was too far away to do it for years before she died, so I should be used to it by now. I see a post like this and I'm just so happy that your daughter has that! The cake looks amazing and your family is so special. How fun!

Strawberry Marquita cake looks so interesting. I never heard of it. And, since you said it is so moist, that makes me want to try it even more.

Hi BJ! I've visited before but it's been awhile. Vee sent me an email that you were going to Canton this weekend. I had planned on it but I came down with the crud and my oldest son is going to be at our house this weekend. I would have loved to come meet up with you there and have an ice cream cone! Maybe another time!!! Hope you have a blast at Canton this weekend and find lotsa goodies!

The cake looks wonderful!!!
