Oh. My. Cake.

I'm not up to formulating full paragraphs today so point form it is!

1. Ice cream cake. Not just any old ice cream cake. Blizzard cake. Have you seen one of these things?? Take the yumminess of regular ice cream cake and add in Smartie bits throughout and top with chunks of chocolate chip cookie dough, chocolate sauce and whip cream. Oh. My. Heaven.

2. I did exercise some willpower on my birthday yesterday. Yay me! I passed on Montana's for supper and instead hit up Subway for a 6 inch turkey breast sub...yum. Just as good and probably 1/5 the points! AND as much as I wanted more, I stayed away from the leftover cake last night after everyone left.

3. Hubby gave me the best birthday ever. Surprise presents all day long. Placemats from Peir 1 that I've been wanting, under the counter wine rack, tickets to a hockey game tomorrow night, and a beautiful framed black and white pic of us that I adore. and did I mention the Smartie/chocolate chip cookie dough Blizzard ice cream cake? (side note - Smartie/Chocolate Chip cookie dough Blizzards are my absolute favorite!)

4. On top of all that wonderfulness, when we got home, his family, my family and my best friend were all waiting for me at my house...with presents!

5. This morning I feel super nauseous and have a fever. Hope I'm not coming down with something. I'm hoping it will pass in a few hours. It may have been the cake. Not sitting well with my all.

6. Tonight I am meeting up with about 10 girlfriends and we are going to a fancy Thai place in town in honor of my birthday and 2 other friends that have birthdays this week. Then we are hitting up my favorite wine bar (mmm wine) and then going out dancing. I'm hoping I'm feeling better. My plan for points? No dessert at dinner and I'm limiting the wine consumption to 2 glasses. I'm going to enjoy the company instead of the extra booze. :) Work off that Thai food on the dance floor!

7. Tomorrow is Scott & Carolyn day fully equipped with shopping for new spring clothes and Dominican stuff, buying some stuff for the house, and a playoff hockey game for our local team. Can't wait!

Hope you ladies have a fabulous weekend!!!


  1. I'm glad that smarites and cookie dough are your favorite. sounds a little icky to me. But I guess any ice cream cake would be super yummy!

    Glad you are having a great b-day celebration! Your hubby is such a sweetie!!!

  2. Ice cream cake sounds yummy, but I agree with noelle, not that combo for me! Glad you enjoy it though!

    Your plan sounds awesome, have a great weekend!

  3. I love ice cream cake too, but I agree with the other girls. I don't think I'd ever want Smarties inside my ice cream - yuck! I'm glad you liked it thought.

  13. First of all....Happy Birthday!!! I love that eventhough your favorite Blizzard combo is about the strangest one I've ever heard of, that thoughtful husband of yours bought you the cake version! Too cute!

    Second.... CRAZY jealous about your forthcoming trip! We're in the midst of planning one to either Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic or some other Caribbean local, however, we don't get to go until DECEMBER since I just started my new job =(

  15. Sounds like you had a great birthday. I LOVE cake in any shape or form. With ice cream is all the better. I found a recipe in Cooks Illustrated for Fluffy Yellow Butter Cake with to die for chocolate icing. I made it last weekend because we were having a bake sale at work. Actually it just gave me an excuse to have a piece and to lick the beaters and bowl once the cake was in the oven! :)

  16. I tagged you if you still do this blogging thing!

  17. Tag! You're it! See my blog for details.
