Happy Tuesday Birthday to Me



No Baskin-Robbins cake for me this year...probably the first time in
my married life.  We ordered one last year...it was not at all good.
The stand alone Baskin-Robbins closed.  The only one left near us
shares the building with Burger King...I declare last year's cake 
smelled like french fries.

This year I decided to buy a carton of my favorite Harris Teeter brand I SCREAM
Triple Chocolate and a Sara Lee Pound cake. There will be pictures later.




The making of Me
Top row: For your viewing pleasure 
It appears from the top two photos
was a born a well balanced ham.  I could touch my head and foot a the same.

2nd Row left, I can't remember why I am in a formal at age 9, probably
a school function.
I'm in the middle my maternal grandmother aka 
Annie Ma on my right, my paternal grandmother on my left
2nd Row: middle photo I'm still practicing my hand/foot coordination.  I was an angel in Christmas Program.
2nd row: Junior in high school.  How many of your remember the
flip hair style.  Took a ton of bobby pins to get the curls.
Then you had to brush like crazy to get the flip and use hair spray.
Bottom Row:  We were in Parrot Land in Florida...good
thing I had been practicing my balance and arm coordination
1 parrot on my head, 2 on each arm

  1. That's a bummer about the Baskin Robbins cake. I hope this was a satisfactory substitute.

  5. Happy birthday Cecilia! I remember the flick ups hairstyle. I went to bed with damp hair and big rollers then in the morning put on so much hairspray that it felt like concrete!

  8. A very happy birthday to you! Mom loves ice cream cakes too, but good ones are tough to find these days, sadly. Culvers had concrete mixer cakes that were amazing, but they quit making them too. Enjoy your day!

  9. Happy Birthday! I remember back in the day when I worked, the office would do a monthly birthday cake and they got it from Baskin Robbins. That was always such a treat. I hate hearing that they've gone downhill. We occasionally stop to buy scoops of ice cream. I love their chocolate pb! I keep telling myself age is just a number but I'm telling you I don't like those kind of numbers. :) You're staying young at heart with your fun birthday humor - you rock girl! I'm visiting from Sandee's niche Comedy-Plus. Happy Tuesday, dearie!

  10. Happy Birthday! Love the pictures. Thanks for sharing them. Sounds like you made a good choice by finding something other than an Ice Cream Cake that tastes like french fries.

  14. I'm Yung No Mo too. I'll gladly join you. I hope you had a fabulous birthday and sounds like your new ice cream and cake will be a far better choice.

  15. Love the photos! Little you was very cute and you crack me up with your comments. I had/have a natural flip because my back hairline is strange. I think your Triple Chocolate I SCREAM and pound cake sounds like a great substitution. Enjoy your special day!!!!

  16. Happy Birthday! Being one of six children, we didn't have a lot, but my parents made sure each of us had their own hand-chosen birthday cake. My brother always wanted graham cracker and pudding (yuck!), and another sisters asked for a cheesecake. My cake was a usual buttercream frosting layer cake from the grocery store, and it always had clowns on it. It's fun to remember, but I don't eat that stuff anymore, and this year, I am running away so no one can find me on my birthday...hehehe!

  17. Happy birthday, and many more! Hooray! Those old pictures were great! GW remembers the flip hair-do.

    (We usually get a cake from Wegmans for birthdays.)

  18. Happy Birthday Cecilia. What a wonderful set of photos! You will surely be forever Yung at heart.
