My 26th birthday was a roaring success so much so that it took me this this long to recover and put together a follow up post. Now I’m not so self-involved that I believe people actually care what happened on my birthday, but I do believe you’re all going to drool over the delectable treats I consumed during this year’s celebration.
It all began with a surprise (two week early surprise) gathering when I went home to NH for Labor Day. 10 balloons, 3 bottles of champagne and 2 of my best friends equals birthday bliss.
To kick off my birthday week I received a box of Birthday Cake Cookies from my best blogging friend at brunchforeverymeal. A woman after my own heart, she knew confetti cake batter and rainbow sprinkles from The Cravory would make me smile. It was the perfect way to kick off my week. I averaged 2 cookies a day for the following five days.
The treats continued Tuesday night with Mrs. Prindable’s candied apples. This was my mom’s way of providing a “healthy” birthday treat. With flavors like triple chocolate fudge and milk chocolate walnut, these were unlike any caramel apple you could ever imagine.
The gluttony continued on my actual birthday when treats from Dough Boy Bakery graced our office. After devouring a pizza, my coworkers and I enjoyed some red velvet cake, a marshmallow rice crispy treat and a peanut butter marble brownie.
Finally a meal without sugar. My friends and I enjoyed a messy bellini brunch with one of the best eggs benedict I’ve ever had. The reason for its success? This benedict comes with thick cut bacon and is served over a freshly baked biscuit.
The weekend ended with a competitive birthday scavenger hunt where I was able to burn off some of the calories I consumed throughout the week. My friends and I ran all around the city searching for clues. This final clue brought us here, to Strawberry Fields- John Lennon’s Memorial, where you can find me giving a peace sign.
