Happy Birthday EP! ;o)

Today, if Elvis was alive he would be 74 years old.  Every year on Elvis' birthday it's a tradition for me to watch lots of Elvis movies and to celebrate with some chocolate cake.  This started when I was a little girl!  I must have been 9 or 10 years old when I was home on Elvis'  b-day watching an Elvis movie marathon when my Mom surprised me by bringing home a chocolate cake to make my celebration a little bit more fun.  Now my Mom REALLY loves chocolate cake, so I'm sure part of her thought it would be a great excuses to splurge, it being Elvis' b-day and all.  I do want to state that my Mom was never an Elvis fan, that is until her crazy 6 year old daughter became obsessed with the man!  Anyway, just the other day my Mom asked me if I was going to get a cake this year.  How could I!  One doesn't break traditions that have to do with chocolate cake, or of course Elvis! ;o)

Ps: Mom, even though you're miles away I think you should have some chocolate cake today too! :o)

I love Elvis - I wish I had been alive in his era! I think he is one of the men in the world you can call truly 'handsome' - I really enjoyed your post! xx

Hi sweetie!!
I made a new blog.
I've missed reading your blog- I'm back on blogspot for sure now. I never even posted that I was on a "hiatus" or anything... I just got busy and wrapped up in things but I'm back! with a new blog! and I wanted to let you know.

p.s. I love Elvis as well. He was gorgeously handsome and so very talented. It's such a shame he's not alive today.

when I was little I'd watch Elvis films on TV and thought he was so suave and handsome. this sounds like a fantastic tradition and the best combination- Elvis and chocolate cake :)

I think its so cool that you love Elvis as much as you do! So many of us ike the same icons, and it all gets a bit boring. You are very original and I think if Elvis was here today he'd love to meet you, and have chocolate cake with you on his birthday, haha :) Hope all is well for you, and I hope your cake was enjoyable (I'm sure it was!) have a lovely day :) x
