Birthday Goods

Wow, the weekend flew by, didnt it?

Jas is back to work this morning and everyone is still sleeping so its nice n quiet right now!

It was a great weekend all around, weather turned around and the sun came out. I think this was the 1st 4th of July that hasnt rained in a long long time. I remember as a kid it would rain every year and Ide get so mad!

Now.....for some goodies!

Friday night Jas suprised me and took me to see Our Lady Peace! OMG - it was just awesome! One of my favorite bands ever. The show was part of our Molson Canal Concert Series so it was a free show. He even got a close parking spot so I didnt have to walk to far! Its a tiny outdoor venue and there had to be at least 35,000 people there! It was killer! I only lasted about 2 1/2 hrs standing so we ended up missing 3 songs, but that was ok!












It was super hard to get any good pictures because I am SO short. I had to hold my cam over my head and just aim while getting bounced around!

This was their opener, Inward Eye





Have I lost ya yet? Keeeeeeeep reading, I got more!!


Saturday we hit a few yard sales and I ended up finding some great things!



The toolbox and breadbox already have a base coat of black! Not sure on the top coat color yet!


My cake was the topper to the weekend! Chocolate HEAVEN, I swear!
Its called a truffle cake, flourless chocolate cake.

Its just eggs, chocolate and butter. There are 4 cakes with strawberry jam between the layers and a ganache frosting! My mom used to make this for me for my birthday so I carry the tradition myself.



And that was my birthday weekend!

I hope you all had a great Holiday, Ill be back later this week with a few re-dos!

Great minds work alike. we went to a concert (free) and we loved it. Course, there were probably under 500 people there but very good music.
Love your yard sale finds.
Have a wonderful week!
