Magical Moment 302, "A Very Merry Unbirthday"

Eddie discovered that his new place of work has a wonderful tradition. Every employee gets their own birthday cake on their birthday! Talk about benefits. On his way home, he'll often call me and report that they had an ice cream cake for "so and so." I always reply with, "Did you steal me a piece?!" And his answer is always a regretful "no."

On one such day, Eddie went to the employee lounge to find an entire chocolate cake laid out in his honor. Odd since his birthday is in February. Eddie explained that today was not his birthday to the supervisor, who apologized profusely. Who knows how the mix up happened, but the important thing is, Eddie got a chocolate cake! And even more important, Eddie hates chocolate (don't even get me started on that one) so guess who gets to eat it all. Yours truly!

The cake is so delicious, I had to keep myself from inhaling it, with layers and layers of fudge and creamy goodness, surrounded with a milk chocolate shell. All I can say is, this is the best "Un-Birthday" cake I've ever had!

Oh it looks yummy! See now, if this had happened yesterday, I'd have to guess that his birthday was February 12 and they just got the day and month backwards but today being the third.. just doesn't work. So if you're really lucky, they'll err yet again. ;)

Just dropping by - I noticed your name on Hilary's site - it's my maiden name and not at all common.

Love the looks of that cake!
Hilary, here's hoping so! :)

Thanks Lori, hope you have a great weekend also.

Dawn, come on over!!! I got half left and I'll feel horrible if I eat it ALL! :)

Esther, I know, I always pester Eddie about it. I think eventually, nagging works. Lol. Just kidding.

Nancy, interesting! I've never known any other Grimes but my husband's family. He's from the Dallas area. Thanks for stopping by!

Magical Moment 611, "Great is Your Reward"

Certain sounds and smells can bring to mind a long forgotten memory. For me, certain Bible verses can conjure up a memory, long, but not so forgotten.
If you grew up like me, in a private Christian school, attending Sunday School, Awanas, and Vacation Bible School regularly, you're an expert at quoting Scripture. I laugh in the face of Bible "Sword Drill." I can find a Scripture reference in 3 seconds or less. When other's have to think to themselves the sequential order, "Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians..." I'm already at I Thessalonians. It's like growing up bi-lingual. The skill is just there.
This morning, I read the first 3 words of a verse, and then finished it quickly by memory. Like the pledge of allegiance, it was automatic. "Trust in the Lord...
...With all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths."  Proverbs 3:5-6
When I finished, I smiled to myself slightl…

Magical Moment 420, "The Critter Awards"

I'm nearly 28 and I still love to go to the zoo - even with no nieces or nephews to use as an excuse. I went to the Turtle Back Zoo in NJ with Eddie today. It was cold and rainy, but I thought I'd take the opportunity to have fun snapping photos of my favorite critters.
The Happiest Critter award goes to: Cassie the Sea Otter This is Cassie's first nomination as she is a new addition to the zoo. She thanks her parents for making her so cute, and the zoo keepers for feeding her and keeping her energy up to entertain the guests.
The Most Hypnotizing Critter award goes to: The Sea Horse The Sea Horse was also nominated for Brightest Critter.
The Brightest Critter award goes to: The Blue Fish The Blue Fish and the Sea Horse are considered rivals in many aspects, but personally maintain a good friendship. "We work together in our goal to inspire awe in our spectators," said the Blue Fish.
The Best Dressed Critter award goes to: The Peacock The Peacock has won this award sever…

Magical Moment 620, "Lilac Garden"

Eddie and I visited the Lilac Gardens at Ringwood Manor in New Jersey, a pristine and beautiful state park with 8 species of lilacs and several varieties within. We went on a rainy afternoon, which turned out perfect because the rain stopped for us when we got there, and began again as soon as we left. It also decorated the plants with gorgeous rain drops, adding to their beauty. 

And now for a quick game of "Where's Elizabeth?"
And "Where's Eddie?"
~~Have a great weekend! ~~
