Hi all! One of these days I promise to have a quilting post, but this isn’t one of them. It does, however involve my quilting peeps.
Last summer I decided I would like to go to Vegas for the big 5-0 birthday last month. Cheap booze, Thunder Down Under, etc. Good times for all! Then, life happened and I had to call off any plans for going anywhere.
I decided I wanted to get together with my quilting buddies in January, so I sent out a notice in December that I would like to get together with everyone for shopping, lunch, painting, or whatever. Well, Terry jumped all over it and said let’s all just do a pot luck at her house. I never mentioned it was my birthday that weekend. I just wanted to spend a day with my favorite girls.
Unbeknownst to me, a surprise party had been in the works for months. Emails were a flying, texts going back and forth, etc. Even my sneaky hubby was in on it. I had no freakin' clue. This is what makes being friends with me fun- I am a total dumbass. Just ask them- they will tell you!
This homemade red velvet cake was waiting for me- thank you Lexie and Bobby Flay
Of course what good is party without presents! There was plenty of wiener dog stuff, Walking Dead stuff, and plenty of other wonderful, wonderful, thoughtful gifts.
I had a most wonderful day, filled with love and surrounded with the girls who make me laugh and wipe my tears when needed.
That night my beautiful birthday girl daughter (her birthday is the day before mine) took me out for dinner at my favorite restaurant The Bonefish Grill. It was a treat to be able to spend time with her, esp on her birthday. She works so much that we don’t get to see her often. She is a sweetheart, and has big things ahead of her. I cannot believe she is 26.
The next night, on my actual birthday, my son took us out to eat for dinner. That as well was very special as we don’t see him much, either. He was whining on his Facebook page he doesn’t have any pictures of us together more recent than 23 years old so we took this one-

It was the perfect weekend with some of the people I love most- what more can I ask for??
