T Stands for Birthdays

Hello folks. Tuesday has arrived and so it is time for T again. Stop by Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog and join us where we are  sharing our drink related posts.
For T this week I am celebrating the birthdays of 2 of my most favorite people.
The 29th of this month is my husbands birthday and the 30th is my daughter's birthday. So this past Sunday I made a cake and we had a little party.
I had my piece of cake with some water. (Pardon the bottles of water. We have well water and don't drink it as we have to treat it for iron bacteria. Better safe than  sorry we say.)
I made a vanilla cake with chocolate chips, strawberry jam and some vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream. My daughter wanted the chocolate chips layer and my husband wanted the plain vanilla. So they both got the cake they wanted.
It wasn't it wild party but we had a nice time with each other. It's good to have some 3 of us time since my daughter lives 2 hours away. She was home for the weekend and even though it wasn't my birthday, it was like I got a little gift too. 
Happy Halloween tomorrow also for those of you who like a spooky.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog.
And wishing you  fantastic T Day.

Happy belated birthday to your family and I must say the cake looks fantastic. Water is always agood choice and in a bottle tastes even better. I always have a bottle of water with me even at the side of the computer.

Have a great T day

It's always fun when your daughter and husband get to share a cake. I always love this time of year and look forward to seeing what you do for them at that time, too. I always love seeing your warm and inviting home, too.

How sad that you have a well, but the water is undrinkable. At least you can bathe and wash dishes without worry. Water is healthy, too. Thanks for sharing your birthday cake and water with us for T this Tuesday. And thanks so much for sharing your Halloween decoration, too. I also saw a pumpkin in the background. Looks like you enjoy the holiday a LOT.

BTW, I think I overdid myself yesterday when I rode out to the pumpkin patch where I picked 10 gourds. I got overheated and didn't realize it until I got home and showered to cool down.

I love your leaves header, Erika.

Yummy looking cake. Strawberries, chocolate and buttercream - what a wonderful combination.

That's a very cool Halloween diorama. Happy Halloween to you too.

Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen

Lisca said...

Happy belated birthday to hubby and your daughter! That looks like a mighty nice cake! What a good idea to make the layers to please both individuals.
No, we don't celebrate halloween, but I do think your little spooky gift is really fun.
Happy T-Day,

Oh wow! That cake looks amazing and sounds absolutely like my cup of tea.I am loving the combination of jam, vanilla, and chocolate chips. If only I could taste it...

Happy Tea Day,

So fun that you made a double cake each to their liking.
Happy T day!

Darla said...

I'm days behind so I don't suppose there is any cake left. Looks like you had a nice family get together.
