My BIRTHDAY was on Saturday Yay...I'm 27, actually I never thought that number would ever scare me, even though I know I'm still young and I have a lot to learn in this life. Its still scary thinking I'm only three years away from the big THREE-O. I know 30 is still young but, I just cant help but think how old I thought it was when I was 16 yrs old:)

I'm doing a cleanse right now and it is awesome and its been the best thing for me...I have lost 14 lbs so far and I'm very grateful.... Although it's been really hard making it through Valentines and my birthday with out eating everything I want... On my birthday I wanted to make all of my favorite foods even though I didn't eat Not even a piece of cake, I just kept telling my self I'll have other birthdays so let THEM EAT CAKE... I was told it was yummy food though, Jason helped a lot in the kitchen.
This is my favorite dessert from Macaroni Grill. The Lemon passion cake! Yummy! (copy cat recipe on my recipe blog)

California Eggs Benedict.( This is my FAVORITE way to eat EGGS)
I love chili's Southwestern Egg rolls and I decided to make them at home they are much easier then they look... If you haven't had them ether make them or make sure you go to chilies and try them.

I saved some CAKE and I've frozen it in hope of eating it in the future, we'll see how that goes... It was a pretty good day, I was pretty disappointed when my sister had to cancel on me, she was going to take Ethan over night but the kids were good and my mother watched them for a few hours for us, it all worked out fine, I loved being with Jason, He got the day off for me and he got me the book I wanted for my birthday and took me out to the movies...


  1. Awe! It sounds great (aside from not eating!). You have some amazing will-power, Nette!

    Happy Birthday again!

  2. Happy Birthday! Looks like some very very yummy food! I am so impressed with you, you look so good! After this baby is born I have some serious pounds to lose, I will have to call you for some support! I am glad to hear that you had a good day!

  3. You look AMAZING!!! You have to teach me how to cook. I can't believe how talented you are. I hope you had a good birthday. Now we can be OLD together:)

  4. Hey Happy Birthday- and I love your house! The pictures reminded me of what we did. We gutted our house as well and have re-done everything, but it makes me appreciate everything so much more. I want to see it when you are all done! We need to go to lunch so email me

  5. Nettie, Happy bday late, I'm getting good at forgetting your special day, but that doesnt mean your not special to me, it just means I have three crazy boys that demand all my immediate attention and things like friends bdays get pushed to the back burner. I love you GIRL! Atleast you can feel good about the fact that I'm 2 years closer to 30 than you! NEXT YEAR! AHHH! Well, Its a womans prime you know. You do look skinny! Way to go girl! Hope your day was magical! I am jealous of your mad cooking skills! Your husband is sooo blessed to have such a cute, good cook for a wife.

  6. Happy Birthday Beautiful (late)! I think you should have eaten the cake and all the other delicious foods you posted. Yumm!!! You look fabulous by the way! I wish I was as skinny as you ... maybe I should do the cleanse. What is it?

  7. Happy Birthday Annette!!! You look amazing!!! I noticed right away that you lost weight, before I even read that you were cleansing. How fun is that! I can't wait to start losing weight again :) I have less than 2 weeks left, and I can't wait!!! Anyway, your food looks so good. I want that Eggs Benedict recipe. I love them. Good for you for being so disciplined. Your house looks great!!! I bet you're having so much fun with it. We need to get together sometime, maybe after the baby comes. It would be fun to have some play dates this summer.

  8. Happy Birthday girl!!!! That cake looks so good- maybe next time I'll have to come celebrate with you! Love you girl.
