COME ON IN, I'M HAVING A PARTY BECAUSE..........

TODAY'S MY BIRTHDAY AND WE ARE CELEBRATING!

Have a seat and relax. The cake and tea are being served. But please instead of tea, make mine a Cinnamon Dolce Latte (skinny please), but put some whip cream on top just for today. We have our party hats on and even the dog is ready to have some fun.

Maxine came over to entertain us for awhile.
So let's get ready to gru-u-u-umble........................................
But don't grumble too long, because even after all of these years, girlfriend we still got it...................
Yes I am celebrating a birthday today. Today I am 52 years young and thankful for everyone of them. Like I said on Monday I don't dread them, it just means the Lord has blessed me with another year of living and for that I am grateful. So what am I going to do today? Well you can be sure I'm not doing any cooking at all. No, not one little bit unless making coffee is considered cooking. LOL And those of you who know me well, know I will be going to Starbucks to get a Cinnamon Dolce Latte and it will be skinny but I will have them put on some whip cream. And I'm not sure yet what the day will hold for me. I'm kind of thinking some lettuce wraps at PF Changs sound like fun. Are you reading this sweetie?:-) "hint" "hint"........ And of course spending time with my little granddaughter Maddie always make my day. So off I go for the day, hope you have a wonderful one also. Oh and one more thing before I go, remember this:

"Today is the youngest you will be for the rest of your life"

Don't forget to take a piece of cake with you!

Hi Joan,

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR JOAN......HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! Who says you can't sing on a blog?? I hope you have a wonderfully blessed day. I will be 51 in May and at first, 50 bothered me but you know what, it's great. The fifties are okay!!
You make sure you get whip cream on your latte, it is your birthday and have fun at PF Changs. I have never been there but one of my girlfriends says it is her favorites.

Have a glorious birthday Joan!

Hugs,
LeAnn :)

... licking the frosting off of my lips and washing it down with the cold milk you set out for the tea ...

Hey! That was really amazing cake.

And I hear that everything we eat on our (or our friends') birthdays is 1/3rd the calories!

So have another piece on me.

Hope today is great.

Happy Birthday Joan.
