what the heck?

After the hustle and bustle of Christmas Eve & Christmas Day, I thought I would check blog land.  Yes, I have a million other things I could be and should be doing, but.......I open my blog and I hear firework sounds in the background!  Nothing else is open on my computer, no itunes, no pandora, nope, nada, nil, nothing...just fireworks??????

Wednesday, December 8, 2010


it was a day of celebration

a surprise of the best kind

a group of women that have been

a part of each others lives

from a few years to fifty two years


we all came together

to celebrate my daughters

30th birthday

we shared a lunch of
chicken salad
egg salad
veggie & dip
cheese & crackers
fresh fruit with creme fraiche
yummy homemade cookies
of course
a sparkly pink cake

we dined on antique pink dishes
linen tableclothes & napkins
(which my son ironed for me!)
with a touch of silver & crystal

we sipped tea from pretty teacups
& enjoyed ice tea from crystal goblets

~the birthday girl~

~the birthday gang~

a very special thank you to the girls
for making the day so special
