Total Basset Case: A Birthday, A Basset Cake and an NYE Wrap Up

A Birthday, A Basset Cake and an NYE Wrap Up

I hope everyone had a fantastic evening celebrating NYE (or my birthday...whichever you choose).
I know we did!
We rented a cabin in Hocking Hills with Katie, Derek and our friends Nick and Emily.
We grilled out steaks, got in the hot tub and played some super fun games that Katie put together.
If you ever need fun games for any sort of party, Katie is your girl!
It was a very nice change of pace to have a low key NYE and ring in the new year wearing sweatpants.
Although Mister may need to take me on a date soon so I can still wear my new dress. 

And it's not a birthday without a cake...is it?!
Katie and crew really blew my socks off with my cake this year.
I am actually sad we didn't have this for our wedding cake.
I mean, have you seen a more perfect cake?!
It looks just like Floyd!
I seriously still can't get over it!
As much as I hated to cut into it, I certainly am not one to let cake go to waste :) 
It was all sorts of red velvet deliciousness.
A huge thank you again to Katie and Sweetly Wild for the bestest cake ever. 
 And another thank you to all of my blog friends for all of the awesome birthday well wishes, tweets, emails and all of the love! 

Happy 2013 to all of you, friends!
Can NOT wait to see what this year holds!
