Birthday Fun!

I had a birthday earlier this week!
And no, I'm not telling how old I am 
. . . old enough to love me some Botox!! :)

It has really been a fun week -- am trying to spread the celebrating out!
The day before my birthday, my 
twin sister came to town for lunch so we could 
celebrate together!
It was soooooo nice!
We had a really fun lunch and chat!

On my birthday, I had a total indulgence
and had my hair shampooed and blown out!
Those who know me are quite aware of the battle
I have with my wavy/frizzy locks especially in the summer!
She made it sooooo straight that a friend from Maddy's
school did not recognize me when I picked Maddy up
from theatre camp!

Of course, the best part of my day
was celebrating with my sweet family*!

*Catherine was evidently taking the photos and neglected to get in any - sorry sweetie!
Next time!

Philip and Catherine made a super yummy dinner for us -
I'm not sure where he got his cooking abilities
as it wasn't from me or Mr. Tennis! :)
It was great to spend the evening with everyone
and totally indulge in some yummy cookie cake!
Do you see the special details on the cookie Maddy ordered?
 . . . A little Scottie, my big red jeep, some running shoes and balloons!

Later today I am picking up my bicycle from
a little tune-up!
It was my Mom's bike and I love that I have it!
Really missed her on my birthday
(every day, but even more on that day).
Lots of bicycle-riding with Maddy happening soon!

How did I miss your birthday? Obviously not advertised on Facebook. Looks like you had a great time. I couldn't be happier for you. I love that cake. Especially love how your girl knows her Mom.

Happy Happy Birthday and lots of love and Best Wishes for you my friend.
