Ella's Turning What Birthday Hop

Welcome to my stop for Ella's Turning What Hop. Thank you to Ella Jade for organizing this awesome hop.

We were asked to share a birthday memory. Mine is from a birthday three years ago. My husband Mike, has got a major chocolate addiction, the man loves to make what he has dubbed the Chocopolyse Cake. It's a three layer chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and chocolate pudding. The thing is huge, and very very very rich. For this birthday he added a layer of chocolate ganache.

See, 4 layers of chocolatey goodness. That man can make an awesome cake, love him. It's an awesome cake. Nom Nom Nom


Now we're celebrating Ella Jade's birthday with a giveaway. 

I'm giving away a digital copy of Olivia Starke's Dirty Love. A part of Decadent Publishing's 1NightStand Series.  


Look at the cover, it's just awesome, one of my favorites.


Kat goes on the prowl looking for a one night stand to rile up her new friends. A little shock and awe to keep her sane in a life no longer hers. When she’s matched with Jared through 1Night Stand, he seems perfect for her plans. Conservative, sweet, and sexy as sin, she’s ready for one hell of a ride.

But Jared is more than she bargained for—much more. And when her plans for amusement turn dangerous will the two find a way to stay alive?







Want to win? Easy follow my blog, wither through GFC, email, or Google+, and leave me a comment on your favorite birthday memory.

Also by commenting you'll be entered to win the grand prize! Which is a $75 GC to either Amazon or Barnes and Noble, remember to check out the rest of the blogs in the hop.

  16. Happy Birthday Ella! That cake looks absolutely sinful...YUM!

    My favorite birthday was my 40th as I got my second favorite tattoo, a garter that goes around my leg with a derringer tucked in. My favorite is the tattoo I got for Mother's Day, the birth flowers of my 5 boys in a half sleeve. But my most favorite birthday is my children's. they are my world!

  20. Thank you for the giveaway and happy happy bday Ella! kamclauc AT gmail DOT com! Followed via GFC as Kyla Patton. My favorite birthday memory is one birthday when I was 8 or 9 (I think) and my parents let me invite a bunch of people over, including all of my family, and everyone just ran around in the yard, jumped on the trampoline, got in and out of those plastic pools around the yard, ate homemade cake and ice cream that my mom made, and hit the pinata! It was super fun just to be a kid and run around with all of my friends on a great day that involved homemade yummy treats!

  29. Happy Birthday, Ella! Thanks for sharing the wonderful day and the giveaways. Your chocolypse cake looks awesome. I really want to try some of that. My mom made me a cake with one layer of brownie in the middle of 2 layers fudge cake, with fudge syrup in between the layers and then fudge frosting all around, you then add more syrup to your slice put in the microwave heat for a few seconds, and put ice cream on the side. Very rich, but so totally scumptious, I would give a lot for it. evamillien at gmail dot com

    I think my best one was this year when I turned 30. lol. Nobody said it and I kept saying I am 29 forever. Then instead of my hubby telling me happy birthday the first thing he told me is hey honey i got my new tires on and sends me a pic. lets just say he was in the dog house for a week. lol

    When I was growing up, my dad would write a message on the chalkboard in the kitchen for us. He was always at work before we got up, but I can remember how excited I would get every year to see his homemade card. I was sad when he stopped doing it because he thought we we're to old. Okay, so maybe we all had moved out, but still. :D

  54. New GFC follower under Scott Wilcox. While birthdays have never been a big deal in my family, my worst birthday memory sticks out the most. Hope you don't mind and you get a giggle. It was my 9th birthday and I got all dressed up for my "party" in a poofy yellow dress with my bowl hair cut. Anyhow, NOBODY showed up (I was a loner in school) so my dad went to the neighbors house and asked if her son could come eat cake with us. Then he proceeded to humiliate me telling me the kid was a "rent-a-friend". I eventually got over this after many years of therapy and alcohol. :)

    Thanks for the great giveaway and Happy 4-0 Ella James.

    Best wishes,
    Marlena
