39 Cup Cakes

Forget the birthday cake! Cup Cakes are here to stay! Who wants to spend time slicing up a messy cake? When you can hand someone a perfect individual one. Behind my back my wonderful friend Mike,purchased cupcakes to celebrate my big 39!
What a wonderful treat it was. Not to mention a great surprise! I was like a little kid on his fourth birthday, giddy with joy. Beleive it or not, I have never received a cup cake birthday cake. It was my definitely my first..but not my last.

I am often asked to provide sweets for events. I always suggest going with the cup cake tower. It's always so festive and can be displayed in numerous ways. I am not one to brag, but I think I have found the perfect cup cake artists. Her name is Diana and she not only makes cup cakes. But has invented the Lollie Bake! A cup cake on a stick! Oh what a great world we live in!!!

Happy Birthday To Me!!!!

Helping Hand!!!!

Sorry for the late post. I had a friend in need. Today was a day where I had a friend, who is in a lot of trouble. And all I could do was help and lend my support. What was probably the worst day for him. Was made a little bit better because of a little help from a friend.

Don't forget to help your friends, when they are really in need!!!

What Happened To The Oscars!!!

I am a huge Oscar fan! I love the entire week leading up to this big day. For some reason this years show and award week SUCKED! No parties, no gifting suites and very little fan faire. Is it because the economy is so bad, that no one really cares? Or the fact that everyone is skimming buy and seeing celebrities in all their gowns & jewels. Just shameful? For what ever reason, nobody really embraced this tradition with any excitement. Have the Oscars become a thing of the past?

In ten years will celebrity be a thing of the past...??? I wonder. Three years ago you couldn't even carry all the free swag you got. Or count how many parties you were invited to. This year, no gifts, no parties & no fun!

Thank god it's OVER! Time to get back to reality. They made a great effort though!!!

Home Again!!!!

On my way back to the hood! Maplewood & South Orange that is... Eventhough I have lived in Los Angeles for more than 15 years. I still love going back home to Jersey! Sure I could have had a big glamorous party in LA. But I really wanted to see all my old friends from Junior High & High School.

For some reason I come from a very tight group of friends whom I grew up with, since nursery school. Unlike other people I know, I was never the new kid. I was in the same school system from Kindegarten to my Senior year. What a lucky guy I am.

I also think having that kind of stability & foundation in your life. Makes you realize how important everyone is to you. Especially as you get older. Living in LA makes things seem a little unrealistic sometimes. So everynow and then I need that slap in the face from my friends from home. They let me know who I am and where I come from. And that they will always be my friends. No matter what.

Thanks guys!!! Love you!!!
