The First of the BIG Bithday Zone Prep

It was a busy day. Grocery shopping, etc and other errands. Then once that was all done, we had some preparations to work on for Dad's birthday. I made my first Pineapple Upside Down Cake. Well what do you think? It seems kind of cute looking.LOL. And I have never done an upside down cake at all, of any kind. I just hope it tastes good, as Dad has been talking about one for a long time now!

Sandy made my Dad homemade potato salad. He wanted my Mom's homemade chicken fried rice, but that takes my Mom hours and she works until after 5pm, so we are probably going to the Polish place that is now our favorite spot to eat. Mmmm perogies! If only HIS birthday had fallen on a weekend! I got him the latest Season of 24, and I know we got him a bunch of power tools he wanted and pre-ordered NCIS. I'm not sure what the girls got him, but I think he is going to be very happy!

Now I have no idea what we are doing besides eating and birthday presents. Sadly there are no other guy movies out. Transformers is MY birthday movie. I called it the minute it was announced as being out this summer near my birthday, and we saw the first on my birthday. And I am not sure Dad will pick The Proposal (he'd say it is a girl movie). Ice Age gets out the day after his birthday and we have always had the option of our "birthday" movie being a different day. Heck Sandy's is going to be 9 days after her birthday...Harry Potter!LOL! I just want him to have a great birthday.

They should STILL sing this song to you when your birthday is near at church!

I love Pineapple Upside Down Cake! In Michigan we actually have, although it's VERY hard to find, Pineapple Upside Down Cake ICE CREAM from the Grand Hotel on Mackinaw Island. Thankfully it IS hard to find because I could easily overdose on it!!

Hope your Dad has a great birthday. :)

I don't bother going to the movies to see most movies, Most of the time I just wait until they come out on DVD, or wait until the TV decides to show them. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy movies, but most of them I'm not bothered whether I see them or not. But I will be going to see Harry Potter. I've been at the first showing of Harry Potter every time, and I don't intend this time to be any different.

Uh oh. I said bad things about potato salad. oops.

Is your b-day July 4th? Happy Birthday no matter the day!

I've heard "The Proposal" is very good, which I kind of didn't expect. Must go see it.
