{Sharing my birthday with you}

WOW, it seems that I just celebrated a birthday and now here I am celebrating another birthday! It's just crazy I tell ya! Time waits on NO ONE!
 But praise the Lord for another day of life, right? God is good! 


My three daughters carried me to Biscottis for brunch. You have your choice of what kind of meal you would like but we all chose brunch and it was so good.



Of course as soon as we walked in the door these two little ones eyed the dessert case. They are well known for their luscious desserts.



Their number one seller is their bread pudding with ice cream. I would have thought it would have been one of their many cakes. My daughter Melissa ordered the bread pudding and said it was the best she ever ate! Now when she picked their bread pudding over MINE I knew that meant I would have to step up my game on my bread pudding! LOL! 


YUM...my brunch was delicious. Some of the best cheese grits ever! My granddaugther Kyleigh helped me to eat them all too!


Then the birthday cake came out! Oh my! What a slice of yummy carrot cake. Needless to say my man got to eat what was left that night with a cup of coffee. 




We sure enjoyed Biscottis. I will be going back.


Daughter Melissa....


Daughter Kristy and grandgirl, Kyleigh.


Daughters Melissa and Marti Leigh.


Daughter Kristy.



Next trip was to Peterbrook's chocolate! Good grief...I could swim in this stuff! 



Mallory and Kyleigh loved the samples! 



YES....I will gladly take some of those please!


Then on the morning of my actual birthday here I what I done for most of the morning!


While my man made me breakfast...or in my case, brunch!


He might not have done the most elegant tablescape or presentation but oh do I love him for doing this for me! 


Then on Sunday after church we done a little dining at Cecil's Hometown Cooking!


This sweet little grandgirl Adalynn, joined us and oh is she such a JOY!


Daughter Kristy and grandgirl Raygen.


 I had the baked Tilapia with crab meat stuffing.DELICIOUS!



I sure had a great birthday and just so thankful that the Lord has blessed me beyond my beyond. Family and friends truly made my special day a true JOY!


And just so y'all know, the carpet is out in the little room that I am remodeling. 

I only managed to stick a nail in my finger once!
 
Walls are wiped down and ready to paint.

Boy that's some pink! LOL! Suited me at the time but now onto change!

Border paper came down! Not as bad of a job as I thought it would be. Of course that is easy for me to say since I was sorta an onlooker! HEY, someone had to pick up the border paper off the floor right?


Ready to paint the first coat!


Ended my day with a cup of coffee in my new cup! And yes, I do BELIEVE!



Stay tuned for more remodeling of the little room and I will share my recipes for Chicken Alfredo with Squash Spaghetti

And as for my birthday I want to say, "Thank you Lord" for loving me so much that you gave your ONLY Son that I might have eternal life! Now that's a true gift! 

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  5. You certainly celebrated your birthday well! I'm glad you were so pampered and spoiled. Biscotti's sounds like the perfect place to eat, especially the desserts. I would also choose the cheese grits! Yum. Can't wait to see the results of the decorating. Have a great day.

  6. Happy Happy Birthday!! Hey! I had carrot cake for my birthday too! And, I just have to say, we could really hang out together with our similar haircut and glasses (I have a gazillion pairs and one is just like yours!) and people might think we are sisters! On a regular birthday year (when I am not throwing myself a huge party!) I would spend my day just like you did and love it.....family, eat, family eat....eat, eat, eat

  11. Awww. Happy belated birthday, my sweet friend. I am so thankful that you shared it with us. Your girls are so special for the way they look after their mama. And that brunch your hubby made you...I TOTALLY get where you are coming from when you said what you did about tablescapes, etc. but you loved him for doing it for you. I have a man like that too...and the food always tastes so much better when he cooks!
