Happy Birthday Twin

Well my twin and I celebrated our *39th* birthday this past weekend! The celebration started on Friday at work. My office clerk bought my pink roses and surprised me with a beautiful cake.
On Saturday I decided to make my twin a cake. I ended up making two cakes, one round cake and one square cake. I used cake tattoos. Since my parents are out of town we ended up having a small BBQ with a small group of friends and family. The cake, with the edible tattoos were pretty yummy! :)
The cake and party continued when I got to work today. One of my tutors, who is also a sorority sister, made me this beautiful pink and green cake. The cake was delicious. It was so pretty I didn't even want to cut it! :) My assistant principal continued with the pink and green theme and gave me some Godiva chocolates and truffles.
I had an amazing weekend full of cake, cake and more cake. I am pretty luck since I am only working 4 days this week. On Friday a co-worker and I are off to Vegas for another co-workers wedding. I return Sunday night and Monday morning, my nephew ERD and I are off to our NYC and Boston trip! I can't wait...

Summer 2011

Well its summer once again. Summer means vacation fun! This summer I am taking my nephew,ERD, to New York and Boston. I am super excited! I was in NYC two years ago on a field study trip for work. That was the same summer I then flew to Tennessee and met my nephew for our Nashville, Franklin and Memphis trip. When I was in NYC we had a jam packed schedule. I am hoping to replicate the sites and scenes with ERD, who has never been to NYC. A few weeks ago I was in Boston for an educational conference. It was my first trip to Boston and I loved it. It was perfect that this conference was in Boston, since it gave me a chance to get to know the city before ERD and I return in a few weeks. I think he is going to really love this summer trip. I know I can't wait! I am already planning next summer's trip. I am planning to take him to Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana! So if any bloggers are from these fabulous states, please share with me the MUST sees- PLease send me your ideas!!! Thanks in advance.Believe it or not I am planning next summer's trip based on a few boutiques I am dying to visit! :)
