Happy Birthday to me

Yesterday was my birthday. I can't believe how quickly this year has gone. I think that it was a year of ups and downs, but overall I can say I am happy. I wish my health was better, but I have nobody but myself to blame for it. I suppose this cake is like a testimony of my major weakness: food. I love eating. I enjoy getting together with friends or family and share a plate of food. I love cooking and making yummy things, so it has been difficult to stop eating, even though I should have. My best friend at work loves food too, so we are not a good combination when it comes to diets, we are always breaking each other's will power (although we don't have much of that!). I have plans and maybe I can put it here in writing so I won't conveniently forget. I will make a change in my bad eating habits this year, I have to and I will. Next year from today I will be healthier.
I had a great birthday, my son prepared breakfast for me and together with Ricardo they gave me a really nice present and beautiful cards. I am now the proud owner of the complete series of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It is so nice to finally own that. It is one of my favourite TV series, so well crafted, written, acted and directed. It will be a joy to watch all 7 seasons again.
I also got a bottle of my favourite perfume: Flower by Kenzo, a new crafty "mate" from my friends Miriam and Horacio, an Argentinian flag and a necklace from them as well. I got another bottle of perfume from my sister in law, a beautiful salad set (glass bowl, spoon and oil bottle) from my friend Linda, a necklace from my birthday buddy and a lovely platter from Kristie. Anna gave me a set of pots and I absolutely loved them all!
I made home-made pizza and my husband made me this delicious and perfect cake!!!! He spent so much time making it so smooth and aligned and it tasted delicious. I know it was made with love cause I could taste it. Thank you to all my friends for making my day so special.

Ayer fue mi cumpleanos, no puedo creer que rapido se paso este ano. Fue un ano de altibajos, pero puedo decir que en balance fue uno feliz. Me gustaria estar mejor de salud, pero no tengo nadie a quien culpar de eso. Solo a mi misma. Supongo que esta torta es un testimonio a mi mayor debilidad: la comida. Me encanta comer. Disfruto juntarme con amigos o familia y compartir un plato de comida. Me gusta cocinar y preparar cosas deliciosas. Asique ha sido dificil dejar de comer. Mi mejor amiga en el trabajo es como yo, le encanta comer asique entre las dos nos es muy dificil hacer dietas. Este ano quiero producir un cambio en me manera de comer y tratar de lograr una vida un poco mas saludable. Asique lo pongo aca en escrito para que no se me olvide convenientemente.
Tuve un cumple muy lindo, mi hijito me preparo un desayuno riquisimo y mi marido una torta riquisima y perfecta. La hizo con mucho amor y dedicacion. Ric y Anton me regalaron la coleccion de una de mis series favoritas: Buffy the vampire slayer. Esa serie nos acompano por anos y me va a encantar ver sus siete temporadas otra vez. Tambien me regalaron una botella de mi perfume favorito Flower by Kenzo. Mi cunada me regalo otro perfume, mi amiga Linda una ensaladera de vidrio con cucharas y botella para poner el aceite, Miriam y Horacio me regalaron un mate hermoso, una bandera Argentina y un collar y otras companeras del trabajo me ragalaron una fuente y unas vasijas. Gracias a mis amigos y familia por hacerme pasar un dia hermoso.
