Thirty-Five or Halfway to Forty

Doesn’t this look delicious? It is a white chocolate cheesecake tower from The Painted Pony in St. George, Utah.  This was my birthday dessert that I had after a delicious dinner with my two road-tripping buddies, Kelly and Tiffany.

We had a fabulous, wonderful, and somewhat odd road-trip to St. George, Utah from Southern California this weekend for Bloggy Boot Camp.  I got home at 3am this morning, and crashed. But I woke up to so many awesome memories, and a fabulous breakfast with my best friend, Stacey and a her daughter.  Because, today was my birthday, my 35th.  Ye gads, I’m on my way to 40 now…

When we chatted in St. George I completely failed to wish you a happy birthday! Glad you girls went out and celebrated at the end of the day. Look forward to seeing you again soon. xo

psssh... the older I get the younger 35 sounds... 14 months before I hit 40... which gives me 14 months to get fit so that I can be the hottest 40 year old in town. (I guess that means I'd better avoid The Painted Pony for awhile?)

Well, lady. You don't look a day over 25 if you ask me! So great to be inappropriately awkward with you over the weekend in Saint George! :) Happy Birthday!

It was awesome to meet you this weekend and find out that you are not actually angry, but very sweet, talented, and totally fun! I just wish you had told the rest of us about the Painted Pony. I need a chocolate cheesecake tower in my life right about now. :)

I've never eaten there and I live here! What a pretty dessert. Hope you had a great birthday! It was nice of you to share it with the bloggers. Enjoy your 30's...relish in them, bath in them, roll around in them. They go by fast.

I will have to re-tell the story in a blog post, let's just say body hairs and food at Whiskey Pete's.
