Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!
Last Friday I was blessed to have celebrated my 52nd birthday. I want to thank each and everyone of you for your birthday wishes, greetings and blog shout-outs, it touched my heart and I truly appreciated it.
It wasn’t too long ago that I would start my birthday day with a scheduled appointment for a mani/pedi, a spa treatment, out for a nice lunch then ending it with a shopping spree at the Mall. This year I started my birthday day with a scheduled doctor appointments/medical tests, a bagel and latte at a local cafe, a sidewalk sale then a meeting with my son’s case manager. It’s amazing how my priorities changed as I got older.
One thing that never changes is the excitement of getting Birthday cards sent via USPS – I still love getting cards in the mail. I received a few from family and friends…
…but this was my favorite one from #1 son…definitely a keeper!
I went to Whereabouts Cafe for breakfast and ordered an Oregon Chai Latte with an Egg Bagel and a Lox Spread.
Rugged Wearhouse was having their annual Sidewalk Sale and everything on the outside tables was $1.00. I couldn’t resist picking up a few pieces of costume jewelry, spending a whooping $7.00, how my priorities have changed!
When son #2 arrived home from school he and I went in town to Verizon Wireless where he helped me choose a new Smartphone. No, it wasn’t the Apple iPhone 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 a b c or d, instead I upgraded to the Samsung Galaxy S4 which I love – older eyes need bigger phones!
Before heading home, I stopped in at Cochran Liquors where they were hosting a taste testing for Bacardi’s new Light Strawberry Daiquiris. With the first sip my mind was immediately transported back to an island in the Caribbean, it was a wonderful mini mental vacation. (BTW my son was driving). I decided to purchase a bottle of Bacardi Light Pina Colada to toast my 52nd birthday.
Later that evening hubby came home with a beautiful white floral arrangement containing Roses, Carnations, Lilys, Daisys and Baby Breaths. This made for a perfect ending to perfectly blessed birthday day.
