Best Buttermilk Birthday EVER


December 1, 2010 by buttermilkbaker

So the day finally came, and is slowly slipping away, but I have to say I am not disappointed in the least. Today has been one of the very best birthdays I can remember!

I woke up this morning and made myself a delicious bowl of oats. I wanted to make sure I started the day on the right foot!

This started out as a butter+jam bowl, and soon turned into a PB&B&J bowl. The jam just couldn’t stand alone without the peanut butter! It was absolutely divine all swirled together.

And then…

It was time for presents!


Oh my god. I cannot even begin to tell you how badly I wanted this to be my bday present.

Within twenty minutes, it had already found its home.

We decided to keep the bowl/attachments in the cupboard to keep them from getting dirty.

Hello, little one.

I looooove youuuuu.

But that wasn’t all. No, no, no. Buttermilk Boy really outdid himself this time. And he got…

AN ICE CREAM MAKER ATTACHMENT!!! I was absolutely over the moon when I saw this baby. I have about 50,000 ice cream recipes bookmarked (David Leibovitz is a genius) and I don’t care that it’s freezing outside. I will be making ice cream in the very, very near future.

And to top it all off, BB tossed in the Bible:

The Mixer Bible, that is.

(P.S. Take a look at my wound! Well on my way to killer scardom. Sweeeeeet.)

Went to class, had a delicious dinner with BB, and when I got back to my room, I had this waiting for me.

A big fat piece o’ cake.

So not only did I have an amazing day for myself, but one of my best friends got a JOB!!! As payback for bringing her good luck (you’re very welcome), she gave me this glorious slab of cake from one of our prized bakeries in town, Claire’s.

You can order a slice for about $4 (they’re HUGE!) and add extra frosting (buttercream, obvvviously) for about a dollar more. Worth every penny.

Now I’m watching Glee while writing a paper while getting some bagels started in my brand spankin’ new mixxa. Dough hook, here I come!

Before I go, I have to give a warm thank you to Buttermilk Boy and Buttermilk Family + Friends for making today such a special, special day. I love you all so very much and appreciate all that you do for me! Your endless words of encouragement, love and guidance mean the world to me and I owe any and all of my success to you.

That means you, too, random reader. Every single hit on this teeny little blog makes my day that much better. So thank you, everyone, for supporting me day in and day out. You da best.
