To beef up this post, I want to share some iphone snaps from my birthday weekend. My family all had a sleepover in Park City on Friday night and then on Saturday (my actual birthday) Randy, Lily, Hadden and I headed down to Salt Lake City to do a little dining and shopping. My family's all been pretty busy lately, especially my parents, and it meant so much to me that they took the time out to celebrate turning 30 with me. It was an excellent birthday!
My Lily and Kara's Acey. These two cousins were so stoked to be in Park City, at the hotel and to be having a sleepover. I totally remember being like that when I was little. Do you?
Pizza from Maxwell's. Love me a good thin crust pizza.
Mom brought up lots of delights from The Chocolate, particularly these Madagascar Vanilla cupcakes. These change lives! (said with fist pumped in the air)
Milk. Us Asay's are really serious about milk with desserts. Especially Jason, who is a connoisseur of chocolate milks.
Brother Bryce getting a good belly laugh out of my little Hadden. He should write a book and/or win an award for getting small children to belly laugh.
Jason holding Indee, Mama, and Kara....Who is going to have a baby in about three weeks?!?! Has she mentioned that yet on this here blog?
My daddy and me. That giant cake in front of us is german chocolate. My dad ordered just the chocolate sheet cake from Magleby's (a local restaurant) and then made the coconut-pecan frosting from scratch. German chocolate cake has been my favorite since the womb.
Breakfast of my dad's cheesy eggs (he was calling them "Muscle Eggs" on this particular morning) and Christmas potatoes. He's always coming up with cool names for his food.
Thanks for obliging me and letting me share these. I hope you're all having an excellent week so far. See ya soon!
