Yes, she is.
So, of course, we made a cake.
And licked the beaters.
And prepared all kinds of other culinary delights.
All favorites of the birthday girl.
Pioneer Woman’s Brisket, Baby was the main course.
My girl had a hankerin’ for something substantial. I’m guessing she doesn’t prepare a whole lot of brisket when she’s away at college.
And on her birthday, she knows she gets just about anything she wants.
Which makes her very happy, indeed.
Or is that smile in anticipation of devouring a ridiculously huge chunk of Strawberry Shortcake Cake?
We’ll never know.
Thinking of a wish before blowing our her candles.
All 21 of them….
I certainly hope it comes true. Whatever it was.
And the birthday cake?
All I can say is: Y.U.M.
When you’re 21, you don’t open a lot of actual presents on your birthday.
Just lots and lots of cards.
Hoping for lots and lots of cash-ola.
And most of the time, our girl is pretty easy to please.
Let’s just say, it was a good thing the cake turned out so yummy.
Happy 21st Birthday, my precious girl.
I am fiercely proud to call you my daughter.
Your very, very blessed mama.
It was a tough pick, but my favorite Sunday Snapshot from last week was Annie’s from Cornbread and Chopsticks. Annie shared about her beautiful daughter, Lizzie.
About Lizzie’s perfect little hands, and Lizzie’s very determined spirit.

Love & Blessings from Hong Kong,
First time to participate. I had a fight with both links, I think I won…not sure. I've followed your blog for a while now but I'm one of those shy lurkers.
Happy Birthday to Tori!!
Happy Birthday Tori! What a beautiful young lady she is~
Awww! Happy Birthday Tori 🙂 My daughter Claire turned 20 on the 20th – so we made cake and licked the beaters too, ha ha! You can see pics on my blog…. (I'm just jealous that I just had the one, when all my life I knew I was going to have kids from all over the world. Life sometimes doesn't turn out how you expect).

That is a BIG b-day…I am glad she was able to send it with y'all. The cake looks delish! Happy b-day Tori!!!
Happy Birthday to your oldest girl! I just read that SS is to be of your kids. Whoops. I didn't realize. Since I don't have any (yet!), I hope it's okay that mine are just of my general life!
She's beautiful, I love how she interacts with her little sisters – clearly they adore her!
Happy Birthday Tori!
