I'll party if I want to..for as long as I want.... LOL

 Yep I still celebrate birthdays! You better believe it because I'm not impressed with the alternative. Plus I like to spread it out. I start celebrating with my daughter and then maybe stop about 3-4 days after my actual birthday which was Tuesday the 5th. Ain't Life Grand?!
 This was a few years ago.  Oh maybe about 30...Not.  I was kinda cute back then.

I think the party is over now though.

Since my birthday and my daughters birthday are so close I get to start celebrating with her. She came home on Friday the 1st and I took half a day off and we went to lunch at our favorite tea room The Whistle Stop Tea Room. It was soooo yummy. That nite Pamela went out with friends. I stayed home to harasse my poor tired hubby.

On Saturday she and I went shopping and got our nails done.  What'cha think? Too bad I can't remove all the winkles from my hands.

That nite the hubby took us to the Taste of Texas to eat for our birthdays. So good. The salad bar kills our appetite every time. We all love their salad bar and eat too much so that means we have left over steak to bring home for later. But before we leave The Taste of Texas always give us a choice of several desserts and then we share with David. We were all so tired and full we didn't even watch a movie like we planned.
Sunday we had an early dinner of hot dogs and chili and then Pamela headed back home. A very nice weekend indeed.
On Monday since I wasn't going to be at work Tuesday on my real birthday There was kolaches waiting and then closer to lunch time my boss brought out the desserts. None of us ate lunch we ate dessert. I work with an awesome bunch of folks.  mmmmm

On Tuesday I woke up another year older and got ready to go meet my Mom and Joe for lunch. We ate at 7 Leguas on 1488 and Honea Egypt. It was really good. We might meet there again sometime.

Now some more fun. I left there and headed home to grab my bag for an over nite stay at a hotel with friends after our nite at the rodeo. It was our annual trip to Ladies Nite Out at the Rodeo. All the food, drinks we could handle, various booths of fun like pictures or bobble heads, and of course the show itself which was Lady Antebellum. They put on a great show. We went to the hotel first and had some wine. I thought Sheryl was pulling out her shampoo bottles until she offered a

 Red Solo Cup¸¸.•´´¯`•.¸¸.•.♫•¯`•.¸¸.•.♪♫•*We lift you up Let's have a party.  I had 3 solo cups of wine. Very Classy... LOL. Yeah it worked. It is was my birthday and I didn't have to drive. We walked from the hotel to the Reliant and more fun to be had. 
I won't tell you how much I had to drink but I was surprised at the end of the evening that I wasn't weaving back to the hotel on the long walk back. With all the wind my curls fell so I had straight hair all evening. Oh well.
I'd been drinking Crown n 7 but one of my sorority sisters suggested I try the Chocolate Milk Punch. OMG! That was so good!
The End of the perfect evening.  Thank you hubby for the nite out with the girls. We 3 walked back to the hotel. The walk back was much longer than the one to the Reliant. That's Kathy, Me and Sheryl.

Oh oh and while I was out having fun I missed my quilt guild meeting where our guest speaker was Bonnie Hunter who also blogs. Love her blog. If you click on her name it will take you to one of her blogs. Of all nites for me to miss. While regret miss getting to meet and see her speak I did have bunches of fun with my sorority sisters who made it to Houston for the Ladies Nite Out at the Rodeo. The nites theme was Diamonds and Tiara's. The Tiara's had blinking colorful lights.

Wednesday was a day of Rest.
Thursday had Lunch with my neighbor from the old neighborhood. She bought me lunch at Celayas Mexican Restaurant on 1960 and Perry. She also insisted we have dessert to celebrate my birthday which was a funnel cake with ice cream drizzled with chocolate and carmel. We couldn't finish it.

So ends my long celebration of fun. Now I wanted to go shopping with my Christmas money, yep I haven't spent all my Christmas money yet and now I have birthday money for some new cowboy boots. I love my little Ariat Fatbabies but I want some real boots.

So Until next blog.... My mind is like lighting, one brilliant flash, then its gone…:( Happening more and more with each birthday.

Happy birthday to you!! Glad it was good.

I can't believe you still have Christmas money! It always burns a hole in my pocket.

Last spring I attended a conference in Dallas and I convinced myself that I needed cowboy boots if I was going to Texas. I bought red and black boots and I feel "special" every time I wear them.

Glad you had such a great birthday. I too love to string them out. My next birthday is a major one so I think I will definitely have to do it big.

Happy Birthday, I'm glad you had fun! It sounds like a blast. We missed you at the guild meeting but I think your birthday and girls night out was a "little" more fun.
