Weekend Activities

I hope you had a nice Memorial Day weekend!  I'm fortunate to have my birthday fall around the holiday weekend many years, so I often get to celebrate with a three day weekend ~ this year, it fell on Sunday...right in the middle...

I don't like to make a big production out of it...especially as my age increases :(  ...so my idea of a fun 'celebration' usually involves a nice restaurant, a good meal and a friend or two.  

I was VERY pleasantly surprised to receive an extremely generous gift from my dear mother :)  I told her it could count for birthday, Christmas, and anything else in between...

I've gone over to the other side...
Say hello to my little friend...Macbook Pro :)

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!!!  Thank you again Mom! :)

I spent Memorial Day with friends in Colorado Springs...we had a nice, relaxing day, with some great food, AND they surprised me with a delicious homemade chocolate birthday cake...and to top it all off, their 5 year old offered to give me a makeover...which I gladly accepted...
 makeover in progress

When Ginia finished with the hair and makeup, she asked me if I had a boyfriend so I could go out on a date with my new look...when I told her that I did not have one, she said, 'Well, maybe you can go to a restaurant and find one..."  Good idea Ginia! :)  If only it were that easy... :)
