So sweet – I love mom presents but I have never received a cake…I am sending this post to my mom as a subtle hint:)

I want cake in the mail! My mom always sent me rice krispie treats…but no cake!

We don’t have a bakery so good it would be worth that kind of trip and blissful ingestion regardless of the condition on arrival. Color me jealous!

Wow! I live about 20 minutes from Whites. Ive been in with my boys but never bought anything. Ive heard great things about it…gonna have to try it. Any recommendations? What should I try?? :)

Amen, sista. Maybe I shall bake a cake tonight in celebration. Of Friday. Or maybe just because it’s fun to celebrate things!

When I was away at college my freshman year, my mom made mini cupcakes that spelled out happy birthday meg. Of course by the time they got to me, they were stale and hard and I couldn’t eat them but boy did it still put a smile on my face.

So unbelievably sweet, but that’s what Mums are for right? I don’t know what I did in a former life to deserve my Mama, but I am super grateful :)

Thanks for the suggestion…when I lose 10 more pounds I will go to White’s to celebrate. :) I was just reminded of the time I was particularly sad, and my friend’s Mom, who makes the BEST cookies ever (oatmeal, coconut, butterscotch, raisins…) mailed me some to cheer me up. It was summer, and I didnt realize the box had been sitting there for a few hours. When I opened it I discovered thousands of sugar ants eating my cookies!! I was so sad…but it was the thought that counts!

I think everyone has thought of doing this, but not actually acted on it. I want cake in the mail TOO! My sister sent brownies and cookies to our friend who is currently in Afghanistan. :)

Ha – love that she mailed you a cake!! Hope you are having a great week!


Jess October 27, 2011 at 12:20 pm

WOW! I lived in Hull MA for years…I know those cakes well!
And now I want one lol

I miss your *real* blog entries! I’m sure you’re busy with your book but selfishly, I want you to write more often here!

A cake in the mail?!? I never thought that was possible! So very jealous!

We love you and hope that the book writing and all the rest of what’s going on in your life is going not just well but FANTASTIC!!!!! Looking forward to the next post but in the meantime will enjoy the cake! :)

Agreed! We MISS YOU!- come back when things settle down!

Hi, I’m a new reader (just this year). I have found your “Journey to lose 135 lbs.” incredibly helpful. I hope you continue to post. There is an audience checking daily for your Seattle Shenanigans and your helpful advice! I find myself coming back all the time and reading and re-reading for inspiration and motivation. Thank you!

Hello, I just happened upon your blog this morning and love, love, love it!! I will be a new follower for sure! I had a flashback reading this post…my freshman year of college my mom mailed me a cake for my birthday….wrapped in foil, saran wrap, heavily packaged, and completely smooshed. SO fun though! Thanks for putting a smile on my face today like she did so many years ago :)!
