I have had the best birthday ever! I got to sleep in with Banjo nestled by my side, I opened my presents that have been sitting on our dining room table for weeks just killing me, Larry took me to lunch at Margarita's Mexican Grill and I had fish tacos for the very first time and they were delicious! The guac was pretty dang good, too. Sneaky Larry gave the waiter a pink candle without me seeing him do it and after we had eaten, they brought out a plate of sopapillas and vanilla bean ice cream with that pink candle right in the middle. And then they sang "Happy Birthday" to me! It was all so sweet.
Here are a few pictures from our wonderful day!
Larry got me this gorgeous vintage handpainted Belgian pitcher and glasses set. I can't wait to make lemonade!
Here's all my loot! I had a family party last Sunday with my daddy for Father's Day and Ami and Brian gave me that beautiful yellow garden stool and Mama and Daddy gave me the vintage FireKing orange pearl coffee cup and bowl. Larry found some vintage Tupperware and meatloaf pan for me, he made me a Scrabble playing piece birthday work of art, gave me those little stuffed balls (Goofballz, they are, and their names are Fannie, Ping Pong, Keely and Calli. You guess who is who. Ha!), he got me a phone case with Colton's description of Jesus on it (and I believe every word that kid said!), a Life magazine from June 1967 so I could see what was going on the month I was born and of course, my Le Creuset French oven we picked up at an estate sale Sunday at the beach.
While I worked a few hours today, Larry baked my birthday cake! He did such a great job that I told him he'd have to bake our Sunday Cakes from now on!
He insisted on putting all 47 candles on there! And then lighting them!! Eeeeek!
We got out the fire extinguisher, you know, just in case. :) Banjo and Tabbie Hoffman immediately went into hiding.
Every girl needs a little glitter on her birthday.
I got some really sweet cards, too! That pink envelope in the corner held Mama and Daddy's card. Daddy drew us on the back, Larry wearing his fedora, me with my hair up, Banjo and Tabbie Hoffman. I LOVE it!
I also got 150+ (I stopped counting!) Happy Birthdays on Facebook. I am truly blessed to have so many people who love me.
If my 47th year on this earth ends up being anything like it started, I'm going to have an amazing year!
