For my birthday, we had a delicious dinner at Alma in Brooklyn, with fantastic mexican food and margaritas and the best view of the city. I had little tamales that were *excellent* and now I’m inspired to try to make some at home.
The day after my birthday we had drinks with a bunch of friends, organized by the lovely Bridget. And the *next* night there was a games night at her house, and Brooke brought the most amazing cake (for both me and Ben, technically)! Last year she and Bridget made homemade Hostess cupcakes (I love Hostess cupcakes; they are a major guilty pleasure, though I can’t remember the last time I ate any):
Which I heartily enjoyed (I think I’m making the exact same face as in the photo on the “About Kate” page, from when I was about 3):
This year Brooke swept into Bridget’s house bearing a HUGE home made Hostess cake! Amazing, check it out (with Brooke’s hand for scale):
And then she festooned it with the prettiest candles. One more shot for good measure!
I am a lucky girl!
