Help! I’m turning into a _______________!

A hilarious card from one of my friends:

chocolate chip birthday

I could not stop laughing at this card!!

(Except the card-makers got it wrong. It should say Katie’s chocoholism.)

Personalize this card: what food would you dress like?
A giant pumpkin? A jar of peanut butter? A stalk of broccoli?!

  1. Annie @ Naturally Sweet Recipes says

    That card is awesome!

    Glad you had a great birthday! And a great post birthday breakfast! 🙂 I have to make that…

    I’m not sure what food I’d dress as… either a really chocolate fudgy brownie or a lemon bar.
    I know, complete opposites. 🙂 But love them both!

  2. Allie says

    YES to dessert for breakfast 😀 And happy belated birthday! Maybe I’d dress as a bowl of oatmeal, but I feel like that would be horribly unflattering…

  3. Barb says

    happy happy belated birthday! I’m so glad you had a wonderful day! My breakfast was also delicious, and paired with one of your recipes – frappacino ice pops!

  4. Liz @ Southern Charm says

    Love that card!! How perfect for you 🙂 Perhaps a Halloween costume this year??

    Fingers crossed that tomorrow’s Starbucks inspired recipe is Pumpkin Spice Latte!!!! Can’t wait to get one for lunch .. well, with lunch 😉

  5. Bree says

    I would dress up as a dessert pizza…preferably a chocolate chip one…AHH!!!! Now I want to make one..haha. That should be your next endeavor ;P

    Glad you had an awesome birthday! That epic haha.

  6. bitt of raw says

    happy birthday! you deserve some time off. i have a question: your feed is not showing up in my mobile google reader. last post was when you said you moved. do i need to resubscribe or it is just a glitch with the reader (highly possible). thanks!

      Oh no! That does not make me happy… I am worried now that it’s like that for other people.

      I think it can be fixed though, if you clear your cache (go to “internet options” and clear all cookies/history/etc). Apparently you should do that anyway, every now and then, to get rid of cookies and help your pages load faster.

      If you try it, will you let me know if it fixes the problem? I’d be really interested to know, because I am not tech-savvy at all, and that’s the only thing I can think of!

  7. Kim says

    Honestly? I would dress like an artichoke 😛

    And I admit I haven’t got round to making that awesome-looking chocolate pie because I spent too much time fooling around making other things with my new Magic Bullet! I finally made dressing that has the texture and flavour of Little Creek dressing! Still a little thick but it makes a nice veggie dip at this point.

    Happy (belated) Birthday!

    • wanda says

      Came across this blog searching little creek dressing…
      Was wondering if you would send me the receipt for your dressing?

  8. Jennifer JCD says

    Perfect card! You have the greatest friends! I hope you had a delightful day. Hmm… if I were to dress up as a food, it would be corn on the cob or a slice of cake (complete with sprinkles). Eh, my favourite foods change so often… tomorrow I may want to be a pumpkin.

  9. Emily @ Glitz Glam Granola says

    Haha omg! That card is so perfect for you! Your friend must have been so excited when she found it! I think I would dress like a piece of cheese… is that weird? Haha but it’s my favorite food…plus I’m already really pale! 😉

  10. Katherine says

    I love that card! And I would probably dress as a tub of plain yogurt…I eat yogurt every day! I buy the large tubs to save on cost, but I go through them in about a week…

  11. Jennifer says

    I’m turning into a jar of peanut butter. Seriously.

    Seeing your breakfast, I was reminded of the conversation I had on Sunday about whether it is ok to eat cake for breakfast. I was truly surprised by who in our group was in favor and who was against. The biggest “foodie” of the group was totally all for cake for breakfast while the others were a little upset by the idea.

  12. Sarah says

    I NEVER remember ANYBODY’S birthday. Anybody happens to include myself. I kid you not. I routinely forget my birthday. Then a friend calls to say happy birthday and I immediately inform them that it is NOT my birthday so this trick isn’t funny especially at 6 in the morning so get off my phone you big moron! At about 10 in the morning, i promptly return the call to apologize for not saying thank you to their birthday wishes and i have to go eat some cake you big moron. Then i wonder why when i call 10 days after THEIR birthday at 6 in the morning they call me “you big moron”. People are so rude. ESPECIALLY when i call on their birthday. I DO call on their birthday. Right?

  13. Lenna says

    Well, I would dress like a giant…oatmeal? Oh, that would be gross, really! But still it is my fave meal ever :)) A giant apple may be the second (and much better) option!

  14. Sarah says

    BTW- if i had to dress up as a food item it would be eggplant. Why? Because i hate it. I detest it. Here is my reasoning. Let’s say i want some ice cream. So i go outside my local ice cream shop… only to see some dude dressed up as cheap vanilla soft serve. Suddenly, i think i’ll go for a milkshake. Ice cream doesn’t sound so good… especially when Vanilla Soft Serve dude dances that weird jig. Yeah, definitely a milk shake. So maybe i can discourage others from eating eggplant. And they’ll go for a milkshake.

  15. Maya (Dessert is in a Different Pocket) says

    That card is amazing.

    I would probably be dark chocolate peanut butter…or maybe an avocado 🙂

  16. Teniesha @ Vegan on the Go-Go says

    So glad your birthday was FABULOUS! Your pie looked incredible–I was in class when I saw it, and I literally wanted a piece then and there. 😀

    That card is SO perfect for you! I already dress like rainbow chard, because I love colours, colours, colours! <3

  17. Kaitlyn@TheTieDyeFIles says

    Is tomorrow’s recipe…some sort of pumpkin spice latte??

    Judging by my WIAW I should be turning into banana soft serve! Soon it’ll be a can of pumpkin puree though!

  18. Aine @ Something to Chew Over says

    I’m so glad you had a great birthday! 🙂

    I’d be a bowl of hot oats with a dollop of almond butter!

  19. Katie @Nutrition In A Peanut Shell says

    I’m so glad you had a good birthday Katie! You so deserved it 🙂

    I’d dress as chocolate ice cream. Mmmmmmm.

    And I think you should totally make over Starbuck’s salted caramel drink..thing. With the addition of chocolate…or does it come with chocolate?
    Or make an oatbowl of it… 🙂

  20. Dawn @ Blonde on a Mission says

    I would just be a giant piece of cereal.
    And I’m thinking that should be your halloween costume 😀

  21. Alex@Spoonful of Sugar Free says

    HA! so funny 😀 Maybe I’d dress like a peanut because I like peanut butter? It works for the Planter’s peanut man!

  22. Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga says

    Starbucks inspired recipe…hmmm, maybe something pumpkin themed? Seems that everyone is hot and heavy into pumpkin already this year!

    So glad you had a happy bday and that you DONT have a recipe today…that just means you were out living life, enjoying your bday, and not worrying about blogging. GOOD for you!! 🙂

  23. Kathy says

    I would dress up as…er…no this is a hard question :P. I’d be a…jar of peanut butter ;D bwahaha.
    When the link was loading to see what you were going to eat for breakfast, I just thought, ‘Did she eat that pie from the last post…?’

  24. Tara says

    I got that card twice for my birthday! Obviously people know what to get chocoholics like us. My grandma, a fellow chocolate fiend, gave me it with a box of truffles and my best friend gave it to me while on the Chocolate Tour of Philadelphia that we did to celebrate our birthdays. Though honestly, I think I’d dress like a muffin!

  25. amy @lovetotrain says

    what a cute card!!! i would dress up as a jar of peanut butter. hmm i actually wish i WAS a jar of peanut butter. no no that wouldn\t work.. i wish i had a jar of endless peanut butter. Glad you had a super duper birthday and i hope someone made YOU the biggest bestest tastiest awesomest birthday chocolately goodness EVER

  26. Emma (Sweet Tooth Runner) says

    HAHA I love that card!! I got cards like that too…people know us well 😉

    I would be chocolate. Or nut butter. Or chocolate nut butter mmmmmm……


  27. Kristie says

    I’m a wee bit behind here but I still mean it superliciously wholeheartedly – HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY Big 25th Miss Katie! I’m sure it was nothing but as amazing as you are! And that chocolate fudge pie holy moly, it doesn’t get much better than that!

  28. Ashley says

    Im so glad to hear you had an awesome 25th!! I dont blame you for taking a day off and Im looking forward to that Starbucks recipe. I spend wayyy too much money there. hahaha that card is hilarious and suits you perfectly!! I wanna dress up as a cupcake, they are soo good and pretty 🙂

  29. Alexa says

    Happy belated birthday! For your question of the day I would have to say KALE. I love me some kale like no other. 🙂 I eat so much kale I will probably turn green at some point…or

  30. Kelsey @ Snacking Squirrel says

    In my opinion, you DO deserve it <3 you are an incredibly loving, kind, and honest person who cares about not just the people around you but the world at large 🙂

    oh i love how random cards are nowadays. the last time i was at the bookstore i was noticing just how 'out there' some of them are- hey they make for a good laugh and we could all use more of those 😉

    xoxo <3

  31. Robin says

    The card is super cute.

    I would be nut butter smothered with nut butter (pb, almond butter, cashew,..). The whole lot, they’re all too scrumptious to not dress up as).

  32. BroccoliHut says

    I’m pretty sure I’m going to turn into a bag of broccoli slaw one of these days…that doesn’t sound very appealing, does it?

  33. Stephanie says

    Sounds like you had a great birthday! Just add my best wishes to the “late” pile! Happy birthday! Hmm – I think I would have to dress as a peanut butter apricot power bar. Or a banana. Or my dog – he’s so cute I coud just eat him up!

  34. LizAshlee says

    Glad you took the day off from blogging! I would definitely be a chocolate chip!! 🙂 Hope you had the most special day and it pours over into the rest of the week!
