My Super Fabulous Birthday!

Yesterday was my birthday. It turned out to be one of the best birthdays I’ve had.

When I woke up and came down for breakfast this is what I found at my place:

My son and his GF who now live with me bought me the roses and a beautiful card. It put a smile on my face all morning long!

The night before my daughter had dinner for the family, She made Chicken Riggies. Yumm!

My DIL has the same birthday as mine so she was celebrated too! It looks like the whole cake was on fire but it wasn’t.

So yesterday I had a free entry coupon from Applebees and I asked my son and DGF to go with me there. I had one of the 550 calorie dinners and it was great!

And then they gave me a free dessert, too! I didn’t know that came with it. It was a small cup of strawberry cheesecake. And it tasted like real cheesecake! Yummy too! Then the server asked me if I wanted them to sing for me. I said, “Sure, bring it on. That’s why I came here.” Then they gave me the dessert with a lit candle in it.

I was so happy! What a wonderful day!

When I got home, my SON had baked me a cake with red raspberry swirled throughout it. That too was delicious.
And best of all, when I got on the scale this morning, I found out that my weight was down from the day before. emoticon



  1. Happy Birthday! May this year be blessed more than all the past one, Amen!

    • Thanks for the birthday wishes and blessings for the next year.

  2. Happy Birthday to you, congratulations. I am glad you enjoyed yourself. It was my Grandma’s 95th Birthday on the 18th.

    • Thanks for the congrats and birthday wishes. And congrats to your Grandma. I hope I live that long!

      • Of course you should. My Grandma is 95 years young and I wish that for you too.

    Just wanted to stop by Dorothy and wish you a Happy Easter! Hope all is well with you. I miss your blogging, as you are also my peace among the chaos. Think about you often! God Bless, SR

    • Hi SR thanks for responding to my blog again. Happy Easter to you too! I really need to get back to blogging again. It’s been a long time since my last one. Maybe I’ll get one in this week after Easter.
