Death by chocolate

What an awesome birthday! I think my friends and family, who are very well aware of my chocolate addiction, set a record this year...I got 3 chocolate birthday cakes in one day!

My birthday happened to fall on our weekly women's Bible study day, so Pam (the one on the right) brought a chocolate cake to celebrate.

Then my sweet hubby...

...slaved in the kitchen all afternoon to make me a layered chocolate cake with chocolate cream filling in the middle! (Sorry that the photo is so dark, but what to do?)

Then my hubby took me out with some friends for a lovely pool-side dinner, and Joanna made me another chocolate brownie cake! Ai yai yai!

So this morning I went for a 35 minute run, road my bike 20 minutes back out to that pool, and swam 20 lengths back and forth! My own little mini-triathalon backwards!

What a blessing to have such loved ones around me, even if they do make me gain 5 pounds in one day!

God is good.
