You know you're really lazy when...

You try to pass off your husband's partially eaten birthday cake as your own.

Incidentally, you also know you're really lazy when you don't even bother to get the entire object that you are trying to photograph into the frame. Poor picture taking skills aside, I'm sure you get the idea. The cake is so rich (read all about it in yesterday's post) that we only managed to eat a tiny portion of it yesterday. No one wanted another dessert around the house, so we're going green with the birthday cakes this year by reducing, reusing, and recycling.

Fortunately for me, none of the gifts are second-hand goods:

Although you can't see it very clearly in this shot, Bert got me 2 thin white gold bands to go on either side of my gold wedding band. I love the look.

My 18 month old has a limited vocabulary but has mastered the word "mama," so it's only fitting that she got me this "Obama Mama" button. I'm proudly displaying it on my diaper bag. Now if only I can teach her to say "Obama."

And although there's no explanation needed for the Candy Land game (I mean who doesn't want to get Candy Land on their 30th birthday?), I'll type up a transcription of my older daughter's birthday card:
Dear (name),
Happy Birthday
I got this preset
because you loveed
it wein you weir
little love (name)

Best presents ever. Now if you'll excuse me, I've got some Candy Land to play. Mary Poppins- style.

Oh, and I suppose I have a workout to do. More on that tomorrow.

I"m sorry I missed you today. I was busy sleeping all day! Awesome birthday present! How thoughtful of him. They're very beautiful. We really do need to come up with some names for the little ones. How about gertrude and phyllis? Hmmm. Did you at least win at candy land? Everyone should win on their birthday. I hope that you had one awesome birthday! You don't look a day over 25.
