MeMe Turns 8-0!

B-A-D Blogger. It is already 2 weeks into November and I haven't posted a single thing. Life has been so busy lately with internship..and Jordan working..and Blah..Blah..Blah. You know the drill! BUT, there are lots of things coming up that are 'blog-worthy', so stay tuned :)

Last week was Jordan's MeMe's 80th birthday! We threw a huge party for her with lots of her family and friends!! I was requested to make a cake for the event. I was a little nervous.. I hadn't baked in awhile. I have been having such a fun time developing and creating savory dishes in the kitchen, and haven't had a lot of time to spend on my baking skills, but, I have to say, the cake turned out pretty beautifully.

Rich Dark Chocolate Cake with Milk Chocolate Buttercream Frosting (and Turtle Sprinkles!)


Before the party- the immeadiate family took MeMe out for a southern cooked meal at Dixie House in Lakewood.
Then it was time for her little house to be wall-to-wall with family (some that I had never met!) and friends.
"Happy Birthday to You!" It was so cute- she sang along with all of us! "Happy Birthday to MEEEE!" As you can see..Jordan's mom thought it was pretty amusing, too!

and, for the first time, EVER..ALL of the Massey cousins and their spouses!

It was a great time! I hope that when I turn 80, I will have just as wonderful family and friends. Love them
