Expiration Date

Like Jess, I've also always been a compulsive expiration date checker.  I would always eat/drink things up until their date.  And then you couldn't convince me to touch it with a 10 foot pole.  It was like on the magical day stamped on the bottom of the carton, a "make food bad" fairy zapped the food and made it no longer edible.

Every late summer/early fall, I find myself checking expiration dates more and more often.  Not to see if they have gone bad, but to see if they expire on my birthday.  Don't ask me why I care what goes bad on the most celebrated day on my calendar.

Today, I was debating making cupcakes.  I walked over to the fridge to see if we had all the necessary ingredients.  Butter, check.  Brown sugar, check.  Eggs, check.  Milk, hmm.  what's this I see?

Happy Birthday to Me
I guess I'll have to start looking for things that expire on my wedding date soon!


  1. The wedding one is the most fun! It makes it seem so close. Like "geez, I could eat this yogurt as a married lady."
