BIG Milestone!

I had a BIG Milestone birthday last week & celebrated it with gusto.  



Even the King (Braveheart) had to have a Happy Birthday pink tiara.



 Two of my grown kids; Scott (from CA) and Lisa (from IN)  flew here to help me celebrate with style!   We won't talk about how old I am,  but I think you'll be able to figure it out from these pictures.






I loved all my cards!


We all laughed about how many times we went out to eat 'cause they didn't want me doing all the cooking.  Fine with me!






I've been on a new eating plan and am losing weight (13lbs so far).  I have been dreaming of chocolate fudge cake with fudge frosting and told my sister that's what I wanted for my birthday.  Being the good sister that she is, she obliged me! 


I'm ready to take a big bite of it!




You can't see him in the picture, but my son was standing right behind me.....

Yup!  you guessed it!  He pushed my head just a little!



Sure was good!


I hauled in the loot too!


I know I forgot some things.....but here's new clothes, new swim towel, drinking bottle, shower caps for swimming, woodwick candle, a Nook color Reader, Ebay & Visa Gift cards, Shower Gel, another fancy candle, red satin wallet, and a personalized pill case.  



and on the back of it.




That says it all.........doesn't it?


Thanks for visiting.

  10. Oops, You should have blurred some of that writing on the back of the personalized case. (of course I did notice the white hairs in Scott's goatee.)
    I hope you had a great birthday!
