Squirrel in the garbage can at my favorite ice cream place. I use my birthday as an excuse to pick up and eat an entire pint of birthday cake ice cream. :D

Check out the wrapping job on this present! My friends Brad, Melissa, and Lauren hooked me up with the Pioneer Woman cookbook, which was on my wish list. Then Melissa wrapped it in a set of choice sunset sheets and a tie from the thrift store! She also slipped in a pair of earring that she made and some fabric. Thanks guys! :D

This picture is of Jamie and Heather, protecting the feast!

Appetizer birthday party was a success, if I do say so myself. I measure it's success by how full I was by the end of the night! It was kind of a wussy party in that it was over at 10, but I think I didn't drink enough water that day and had a pretty bad headache. So it was actually kind of perfect!

I made potato skins and my favorite guilty pleasure- Original Lays and Hidden Valley ranch dip.
Heather brought pepperoni pizza dip, which was a huge hit, and her gluten free brownies that are so delicious that you don't even miss the gluten.
Ryan brought a crock of BBQ wieners!
Brooke brought some delicious rice noodles and vegetables. It was kind of nice having something healthy too!
Jamie and Tony brought Dirt and Worms and pickles wrapped with meat.
Brad and Melissa brought spicy spinach and artichoke dip, guacamole, and the gouda mac and cheese I've been after.

I saved the mac and cheese for dinner for last night, and it was AWESOME. :D

Then everyone played Beatles Rock Band for a bit and the crowd dispersed!

I am curious about the video of Brad thrashing Helter Skelter.

Also, the word I have to type to verify my comment is "deryltra" which I think is going to be my comic con/stage name.

Woops, it posted as "Ollie" instead of "Melissa".
