HAPPY FIRST DAY OF MAY EVERYONE!! I don’t know about you guys, but I LOVE the month of May (mostly) because it’s my birth month, BUT also because it’s a fabulous kickoff to the summer festivities!! Yaaay for (it almost being) summer and my birthday!! 

Okay, so LET’S GET DOWN TO BUSINESS!! As some of you guys (might) know, my birthday IS May 26th aaaand…Wait, what? Noooo way!! Really?!! What?! What?! I’ll be 29 this year??!! 4 real…the big 2-9?!

Note to self: The big 2-9 doesn’t sound (near) as dangerous as the big 3-Ohhhh (or the big 4-Ohhhh like my husband just turned)!

Whooooa time, why don’tcha just (do me a huge favor and) slooooow down there because HONESTLY, I still feel like I’m 18!! It’s just the strangest thing, but I guess it all works out (for the best) because while I feel 18, my husband acts 18 (Hehe, not always, just usually)!!

Anyways, I’m afraid it’s time NOW to introduce this post, but proceed with caution for THIS post is even more dangerous than going to the grocery store on an empty stomach!! Just sayin’…if you have an active sweet tooth, go eat something NOW! 

One question: DO YOU LOVE DESSERTS?! (…because HELLO, I do!)

Well, point in case, if you love desserts, than you’ll looooove this post (for sure) because mmmm, it’s allll about the sweet & savory BABY!!!

    I could eat each and everyone single one of these right now. I would get to one and think that was the one I wanted…until I saw the next. Thus, my self control problem.

    May and October are my favorite months! I love when the seasons transition…it’s so beautiful! Plus back in the day May was the best because in school you knew everything was wrapping up and summer was coming! Those pictures are so beautiful I loveeee looking at dessert photos. Carrot cake is one of my all-time favorites but I really love chocolate mousse too! I seem to forget about it though haha but whenever I see it on a menu I have to get it!

    Can I just have one of each of these please? (Really though I LOVE LOVE LOVE lemon so the lemon chess pie or the lemon bars would be my first choice.) HAPPY BIRTHDAY MONTH TO YOU! Don’t fret about 30’s…they have been my favorite decade so far! (A lot of people told me that and I never believed them until I got there!) I hope your weekend is as wonderful as you are!

    Omg. I want ALL of those! If forced to pick, I’d have to either go with the Reese’s or carrot cake – so different, but both delicious! And happy birthday month (I’m also a May baby!)
