This is why I married the man that I did. If I had married a man like me, this blog would have a very different name.
Hooverville Mom. That has a really nice ring, don’t you think?
Also, Cate assured me that I would be extremely popular if I wore green face paint to the production.* Certainly I could have bought a new dress, because I am growing weary–WEARY!–of seeing pictures of me in this red one.
(You too? I thought so.)
Second of all, to answer my friend Cathie’s question…
The cake that Cate made me was Duncan Hines Red Velvet, frosted by me with cream cheese frosting and candle-fied by George and Angela. “That looks a kid’s cake,” Felicity remarked, “Except it’s got millions of candles.”
It was recommended that I, being a somewhat busy mom, celebrate a birthday octave and not just one day. What a good idea! And so we had the candle-fied cake last night, and my husband (despite my Wicked infraction) gave me one more present: a box of Godiva truffles.
You know what? I think I’ll keep him.
* In truth, I did not really wear green face paint. (The above edits were done on PicMonkey.) Still, wouldn’t it have been fun if I had?
