Yesterday was my mom’s birthday. My boyfriend Scott and I decided to decorate my parent’s house with some supplies we picked up from Target before she got home from work.
I think it came out really festive. We hung streamers from the entryway to the dining room, which I had seen on Pinterest. Scott blew up 15 balloons and taped them all over. We had a lot of fun doing this, although our weimaraner dog was bewildered.
Scott also cooked for my mom’s birthday. She can’t have anything acidic, so we made her a pesto based pizza with mozzarella and broccoli. We used pre-made whole wheat crusts from Central Market.
Scott took all of the gorgeous “after” pictures, and I was too busy eating my slice! I also made my mom birthday cake pancakes instead of a cake- if you’d like to see that recipe, head over to my food blog: www.taylormoorecooks.blogspot.com
We had gotten her a California fig tree from Whole Foods and my brother called her from DC, even though he’s pledging his frat’s Hell Week and can’t really use his phone. It was a really fun, relaxing night with my family.
Happy birthday, girl!
