Bloggy Birthdays and Sleeper Posts

When you get to a certain age, you start to forget things. Like where you put your denture cream. And why you weren't talking to Aunt Laverne for 30 years. And birthdays. Yeah, you block those babies right the heck outta there. It's for your own good.

Wednesday, Of Cabbages and Kings celebrated its second bloggy birthday. Bloggiversary. Anniversary of blogdom.


And I guess my mascot, Old King Cole Slaw, had to party without me, because I completely forgot about it. And when I did finally remember, my bud Kathy of The Junk Drawer promptly made me promise cake. So, if you were keeping score, that's Stomach: 1, Memory Skillz: Zip.

Anyway, I thought-- other than giving Kath an opportunity to stuff her face on sweets, what else should I share with you guys for this special (totally late) occasion?

With Cabbages being my youngest of two blogs, I've done a few different things over the years to celebrate. We've talked about Lessons Learned. We've done giveaways. We've even danced on the tables. (Deny it if you want, you know who you are.)

So this bloggy birthday, I thought I'd do something a little different. I've pulled a few posts from the archives that I don't think many of you might have gotten to see. Some of my favorite sleeper posts, if you will.

Because, hey, it's Friday. That calls for a little bit of levity! So if you need a break, pop by, put your feet up and check out one of these blasts from the past...

And have some virtual cake.
That is, if Kathy hasn't eaten it all already. :)

(Watercolor illustration above courtesy of my friend TJ who made that for me on my own birthday this last year. Thanks again, TJ!! You're a gem.)

Happy birthday you old sauerkraut !
Strawberries on cake are my favourite !

Oh I haven't seen Aunt Laverne in years ! I hear she is now finally in the movie business eh.
But have you even heard from Aunt Shirley ? She hasn't even written after marrying that doctor - what a meenie !

Jaffer- Aunt Shirley's well, but her career hasn't certainly had the kick of Aunt Laverne's. :) I suspect Kathy will laugh when she sees that picture of the cake-- as she'd HAD some of that cake-- it was when we met out in Wellsboro PA to see Bryan and Kim. The B&B owner gave us cake for breakfast!

Mmmm... fond cake memories.

Happy bloggy birthday! I love that illustration! I wish I had some real strawberry cake. That looks quite delicious. But I'll do the best I can with my imagination. *sigh*

Surfie- Oh, it was really good-- so good I didn't even feel guilty about having cake for breakfast. :) Thanks for celebrating with me!

Happy birthday! I'll take a slice of that delicious looking strawberry cake, if you don't mind!

I forget birthdays, too. What use are they anyway?

Oh yeah. Cake. ;) said...

Happy Bloggy Birthday, Jenn! Wishing you many happy returns of the day!

I think I'll skip the cake, thanks, but happy bloggy birthday! I'm Mike, by the way, just in case you forgot. Again. And you're Jenn. Same reason.

Happy blog birthday!

I'm not ashamed to say that I can do a mean table dance.

TJ Lubrano said...

Woohoo! Happy Bloggy Birthday!! I hope that there will be many more!

Oooooh look at that cake! Just look! I want some cake now. Maybe I need to make one *stares at pile of school work*...

But! I'm very happy you (still hehe) like the illustration ^_^! The 'zombie post' is one of my faves!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Jenn, a coworker and her family are going to England in the spring and staying at a couple B&Bs. She told me what a typical English breakfast is like there (heavy on the meat) and when I told her what we had on our trip, she said she'd rather have that. "You had CAKE at breakfast?!?!" Yes, yes we did.

In honor of your bloggy birthday, I had chocolate covered strawberries today. Dee-lish!
