Greetings Sweet Friends
Happy 70th Birthday to me!! lol
I hope you indulge me on this post,
I am truly not trying to be braggadocios,
just wanted to chronicle this in writing
and pictures for later remembrance for
myself, and my Sweet family, and knew
it would take you along for the ride.....lol
The header picture is of me and my sweet
hubby and you will see the rest of our
family throughout the post.
Me, My Daughter, DeeAnna, and Granddaughter Brooklyn (AKA lil darling)
So on with my Thankfuls..............
#1 and 2
Thankful that our Daughter and Hubby
were so sweet to drive here to celebrate
my 70th Birthday with me this weekend,
especially since we just left SC last Monday.
Thankful They got in on Friday afternoon
safe and sound, and back home safe
and sound on Sunday evening.
Immensely, Thankful for all my family and
all the sweet and encouraging things they
did to make it so special for me. You guys
rock......and I love you all too pieces!!
Thankful we could all get together on
Friday evening, and that we were able
to be outside on the porch as the weather
was perfect, and we ate and later played
a game of "PIT". If you have never played
it, you should get a Pit game, it is so much
fun, a bit noisy but really fun.
Thankful that we had a lil time to have
breakfast and just hang out on Saturday.
Could not have had better weather, cause
Thursday it was storming really bad, and
we all love the opportunity to be outside.
Thankful for dinner out at a location of a
restaurant where we used to go all the time
when the kids were younger, not the same
restaurant anymore, but it was a nice blast
from the past. The background in the picture
is a tile mural of manatee's, (which has been
there all those years ago)
Manatee's are native to our area. It's a neat
place you have to go downstairs to get to it,
and pass by this lovely mural to get inside.
I had Risotto for the first time and really
liked it. Liked everything but the scallops.
I think I will probably never order scallops
out again because they are not cooking them
the way they used to for some reason, as
they are translucent rather than white
inside. This is the 2nd restaurant that
has happened at, so I will cook my own
from now on. lol
Thankful for a beautiful yellow cake with
chocolate butter cream frosting made by
the same gal that made lil darlings cake.
It was not just beautiful but sooo
Thankful that we have a beach vacation coming
up this Summer in honor of my Birthday. That
was the only gift I asked for, as we have not
done that in 9 years.
Thankful that they have fully equipped me for our
beach get-a-way with a hat, sunglasses, bathing suit
cover-up, sunscreen, Beach towel, sandals, rafts
and pool noodles and an adorable beach bag to
put it all in. So thoughtful and creative.
So I am read to go!!
My daughter dressed me up! lol
Thankful for a beautiful silver bracelet from
all of them, and the bracelet is so pretty and
she got it from an etsy shop and the present-
ation was just amazing, (unfortunately since
it's been opened I couldn't show you that.)
Wished I had thought to take a picture of
that. So fun and So pretty.
Now every time I wear it I will think of
this Sweet and Special Birthday.
So thankful for the special surprise of a
"Memory Box" that my Daughter made
for me. She contacted lots of friends
passed and present to add their thoughts,
comments, well wishes, or whatever they
wanted to write to me for my 70th Birthday.
She typed them all up separately and put
them all in a beautiful silver box.
Wow, I have to say I was blown away.....
I feel so encouraged and loved , and
my cup is truly running over.
If you ever want to do something very
special for someone on a very special
occasion I would highly recommend it.
We did it for my husbands 70th birthday
but we had it made into a book, but
they aren't doing it anymore, so she
got creative and decided to do the
Memory box instead. I loved it!!
Thankful to all of the sweet folks who
took the time to bless me on my
birthday.....in small way and big ways,
it was all so appreciated and you will
never know what it did for the soul and
spirit of this lady!! I feel incredibly
blessed.....and pray the Lord blesses
each of you for your kindness to me.
Thankful that on my actual birthday,
which was yesterday (Tuesday) the
day was amazing too. I had 4 people
call and sing to me, and a lot of birthday
cards, text and facebook messages.
What a fun and enjoyable day.......Just
when I thought it couldn't get any better,
Also had a great day with my hubby,
he wanted to take me out to do some-
thing fun but I was just content to be
at home as we have been on the go
quite a bit lately, so we got take out from
a new to us, b-b-cue place we have never
been too, and it was great, I actually
loved their potato salad because it tastes
like Mine (my Mom's recipe). Most of the
time when I get Potato salad out it is too
sweet for me. So we have found a new
restaurant to enjoy. So it was just a
happy and quiet yet enjoyable day
spent with my honey.
Well, that's it for Cozy Place this week.
This is the Birthday Edition. lol
Glad you could stop by
and truly hope YOU
have an incredibly blessed week.
Love, Hugs and
End of March Blessings,
