Birthday Booze and Celebratory Cupcakes!!

Someone once told me that calories don't count on your birthday. I've lived by this philosophy ever since, and I decided for this last birthday so eat and drink exactly what I felt like during all the celebrations.

Unfortunately, my body is not used to it and found subtle ways of convincing me to return to my standard diet of turkey sandwiches, salads, lentils, vegetables, oatmeal, cereal, and lots of yogurt with LOTS of berries and granola. I do love all my healthy food and daily exercise, but I had a lot of fun indulging in all my birthday treats as well.

Here's a little glimpse into some of what my taste buds got to experience in the last week or so:

Baby CrushCakes Cupcakes at work

First legal drink!
White Choco Chip Banana Cream Cupcake
Some Little Minis
Tiny Jack Daniels in Chocolate!
Ghirardelli Sundaes
Bread, Cheese, and Cucumber Salad at the airport

Raspberry Vinegar and Lime Olive Oil... UNBELIEVABLY GOOD!!

... I'm thinking I need to cool it on the cupcakes for a while. Next weekend I'm going to a wine and cupcake pairing/tasting place, so if I can resist until then that would probably be good.

Like I always say, it's really about balance. While in San Francisco eating and drinking to my heart's content, I was also walking all around, riding a bike through the city, and dancing around whenever I found an appopriate time to do so. At least I was burning some calories while consuming all of this yumminess, right? :)


  1. Great pictures. Love the Raspberry Vinegar and Lime Olive Oil one...looks interesting.

  2. Those minis are so darn cute!
    And I couldn't agree more- calories DO NOT count on your birthday! I'm glad you made the most of it. (:

    Love your blog! I can't wait to see more. And happy belated birthday, by the way!
