What a BD!

What a nice BD I had yesterday!  My morning started off with phone calls from family and friends and of course, FB friends giving me BD wishes too!  Gotta love the 'social media' gig, don't you!!

This is my friends, Carol and Peggy who joined us for dinner at Carrabba's last night.  We had a great meal, as usual.   Nice friends, good food and company! 

No, Bob wasn't really sleeping...just hard to take pics so close to each other!  This is Sammy, Tony and my better half! 

After dinner we went back to our house for one of Bob's favorite desserts.  For some reason, I only make this cake for my BD!  It's actually a cup cake recipe my daughter gave me several years ago but since Bob doesn't like cupcakes (don't ask!) I make it into a cake. 

So for the past 3 years, this has been our routine...dinner then back to our house for Bob's cake!  Yes, that is cream cheese frosting on it.  It is really good!!! 

After we each had a small piece last night, I put the other half in the freezer.  Maybe I'll haul it down next week when I visit my sister!  Now there's a thought!

And I had two deliveries yesterday!  The flowers were from my Dawn and Jeff!  Aren't they beautiful!

And this was at the front door when we got home from dinner - another long story....UPS makes deliveries at 8:00 p.m. and later here in the community!  Don't ask!!

So now I'm a Wildcat grandma!!  Yippee!  Both Amber and Nick play sports and their mascot is the Wildcat!  I mentioned last fall that I needed to buy a sweatshirt or something that says Wildcat!  This is a really nice sweater and I also got a necklace that says 'special grandma'. 
What a nice BD!!!   THANKS to all!!!
