BBQ Gathering and Trio January Birthday Celebration

My favorite month and the start of the year, and it makes it all the better when I share my birthday month with so many lovely friends and also, great celebrities and leaders:)
(Hehe, obsession:p )

Anyway, for the first time this year, my friends and I planned to meet up for a gathering and to celebrate our birthdays together. We made attempt to arrive from different destinations and the plan was a rather shaky one as some almost could not make it, but in the end, we were glad that all made it!:D

It was a coincidence that my best friend, or soul sister whom I share my birth date (and year!) was also moving into a new house and it was somewhat of a housewarming party as well.

After a few rounds of discussions and ideas pooling, it was decided on a BBQ party despite the humid January weather.

It was all in the name of fun, catching up and just being with each other that it no longer mattered what we were celebrating about.

Food prepared for the BBQ by the lovely hostess and birthday girl :)

To be honest, I am not really a big fan of BBQ, as it is time consuming, hot, and the food end us looking burnt:p
Anyway, as I have mentioned, it was all in the name of the fun with friends and I had so much fun with everyone:)

I got another cake for the girls as well, to surprise them and no, I did not make this cake.
I saw this cake in the window of a bakery and I loved the colors and the name of the cake.
