Let them eat cake - I mean me! cake during birthday week is acceptable for any and or every meal and believe me I took full advantage of that rule during birthday week which is why now begins detox month!
OH MY GAW - most of you will remember this pastel i had done of America Ferrera er i mean Annabelle YEARS AGO - well it has been sitting at the yake for safety and i have wanted to get it framed forever soooo for my birthday mom got it framed for me!
the celebration continued the next day with Grannie and gifts!
then we walked down the street and ended up here for after dinner drinks!!
Birthday Dinner ~ quite possibly THE BEST meal we've had! HOLY YUM!!! It was FABULOUS! I started with the wedge salad (gorgonzola cheese - bacon - some awesome salad dressing) i ate EVERY bite followed by buttermilk fried boneless chicken breast with pimento cheese macaroni and cheese and green beans with bacon.
YUM YUM YUM YUM - Mike and I are still talking about how delicious it was!
with a quick pit stop here ~ not only are they the BEST cupcakes of all times - my big sis owns it - i was hoping for a carrot cake cupcake but had to "settle" on red velvet (the next best thing) and oreo cupcake for later!
Mike took the day of so we could have BIG BIRTHDAY FUN! He said we could do ANYTHING i wanted so I made a list....#1 on the list??? THE BEACH! it was a gorgeous day for the beach...the sun was shining - the wind was blowing - we had a perfect spot!! We hung out, drank a few beers, read trashy magazines, and LAUGHED!! I could have stayed there all night but ran out of beer so then we continued on the perfect birthday evah.....
Tea party time! Annie had been wanting to have a tea party so grannie went out and got a proper tea pot with cups and cookies ~ so cute and then Mary Cole HAD to join in....PRECIOUSNESS!!!
LOOK at that FACE! she's so so so so cayute!!!
CAKE - I decided to start the birthday cakeabration with my FAVE!!
how cayute are these girls?? granDennis turned on the slot machine and WOW - those girls LOVED that game! it's amazing that an almost 2 year old and visually impaired 8 year old can figure how to team up and work that machine!!!
Yes, i know most people don't celebrate their birthday for a week but I do! ONE day just isn't enough of a party for me!! So it started with a weekend at the lake with my girls...we got to pick up my littlest priss pot and swoop her off to the lake!
