Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Birthday!!!!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!  I hope you are surrounded by family and friends and enjoying a big, yummy dinner together and thinking of all the things you are thankful for.

One thing I am thankful for, especially today, is my bestie Alex.  I am actually thankful for Alex everyday of the year, but today is not only Thanksgiving (my favorite holiday), but it is Alex’s birthday!!!!  Alex and I have been best of friends since our freshman year of high school.  We met in biology class and have been close ever since.  We’ve shared many experiences-most of them wonderful and a few not-so-wonderful.  High kicking on drill team, late night trips to Freddy’s, eating late night McDonald’s, sharing crushes (shirt alert), moving to the “big city”, laughter, book clubs, eating great meals together, cooking, yoga, running, marriages, and for Alex, the birth of her beautiful daughter Peyton.

It was actually Alex who introduced me to the blogging world and has supported my idea of having a place to share my IVF journey.  She doesn’t pretend to know what I’m going through, but offers her ear, her shoulder and her calmness.  I don’t know how I would survive the emotional rollercoaster of IVF without friends like Alex.

She makes me laugh!

To celebrate Alex’s birthday we went to Trophy cupcake and had their seasonal pumpkin pie cupcakes.  We both adore both cupcakes and pumpkin pie, so how could we go wrong!?

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear Alex, Happy Birthday to you!!!

Thank you for the 20 years of friendship, here is to 20 more!  I love you, you know! xoxoxox

  1. Awww you and your bestie are a gorgeous pair!

    Glad to hear you’re doing well and enjoying the journey.

    I have a cooking question for you. I have a supper club on Saturday and theme is cocoa. Dessert spots are all taken and someone else is making mole. DRATS. What kind of entree would you make or have you made using cocoa as an ingredient?
