growing up with her has been such a blessing. when we were younger, i would always copy her, cause she was SO COOL! she did not like that! now, we share pretty much everything - music, movies, clothes [or just buy the same ones] and passions. i mean, sometimes, we act like the same person.
Rachel - You are amazing.
I LOVE YOU! HAPPY 27th BIRTHDAY!!!!!!
we celebrated Rachel's birthday with dinner at Olive Garden and back to their place for fruity cake.
for Rach's bday, i used a "tart/flan" pan my friend Bethany bought me from TJ Maxx. i didn't have a good recipe to use for the cake, so i used a boxed white cake [accidentally adding 1 egg & 2 whites instead of 3 egg whites] and added a little lemon juice and zest. i topped this with strawberries, blueberries & raspberries and homemade whipped cream. the whipped cream had 2 oz of cream cheese, lemon juice & zest blended together, then 1 1/2 cups [i think] of heavy cream. that was all blended together to a soft consistency. and, i must say, it was awesome.
for her birthday, brian bought them A TRIP TO ITALY!!!!!!!
the first image of bri & rach he was saying "today is ALL ABOUT HER." it was funny. the second she is just realizing what's going on, third is her "freak out" and fourth her thank you!"
