I have just had the best birthday this year! The actual day was yesterday but I've been celebrating for the past two days. The day started with a Happy Birthday text from my oldest daughter, Missy. Then she took me to lunch at the best Asian restaurant and gave me money to go shopping. It was so nice to spend time with her which we don't get to do very often these days.
In the evening I went to dinner with Stephany, my youngest daughter. We went to Red Robin so I could use my free burger coupon. The food was so good and we had so much fun. After that we went to do a little shopping at Walgreens and I got new makeup with my birthday money.
Today I went to visit my friend Elodie who lives about 45 minutes north of here. When I arrived the dining room table was filled with presents - bath and body goodies which I just love. I know, I make them but I still love to get them too! I also got to take home a bouquet of roses from her rose garden! She took me to lunch at a little bakery in Castle Rock. We had clam chowder and sandwiches for lunch then took home a birthday cake for her husband and I (his birthday was on May 5th). She even had our names put on the cake - I brought the wedge home with my name on it as I was too full from lunch to eat it. But one of the best parts of the day was getting to meet Tessa, Elodie's English Bulldog puppy. Is this not just the cutest face you've ever seen (Tessa's, not mine)?
I just fell in love with Tessa! It's been a long time since I've been around a puppy - they just smell so good, puppy breath and all. I really did try to sneak her home in my tote bag but Elodie was watching me like a hawk!! Guess I'll have to try the next time I go visit.
Now I need to go take a rest as I'm worn out from all the celebrating!!
