What a way to spend a birthday!….and a surprise



I had quite a day Monday, on my 50th birthday!  I was just going to play it cool and not think too much about the significance of it. I was just going to go about my day like any other. Well hubby had informed me that he had invited the whole family for dinner and it was all taken care of not to worry about it. Cool! A regular day and I didn't have to worry about dinner. Nice! Well …..other people had other plans. My daughter Lizabeth called the night before and asked if I would like to go to her Dr, appointment with her. I am free to tell know that she is expecting her second child this summer. I was up early to get to the office in time. She called and told me to bring flip flops and that she needed to go to the store after. Ok, so my day was full already. All I could think of was spending time with my daughter and  a new baby!! So at the appointment I got to hear the babies heart beat for the first time.So exciting for new life and a new grandbaby!! After the appointment we went to Starbucks for coffee and she told me she had made appointments for manicures and pedicures. Oh ya and that my other daughter Amber and granddaughter Layla were meeting us there.


When we got there they had the cutest chair for children. I was so surprised, one that my granddaughter was going to share the experience with us and  two that they would have an adorable chair for her.


Isn’t that just adorable??!!

Wow! I didn’t even have the pleasure of having a manicure until my daughters talked me into it when they were getting married. Frivolous I thought. But for special occasions, that is what it is all about I guess.


The looks just tell it all!! Such a fun day with my favorite girls!!



Well, by then the girls thought that we needed lunch.

Well while we were out all day hubby had been busy cleaning house and getting me some beautiful flowers.

He also got me a wonderful gift, but I will share that in my next post.


Beautiful flowers, yummy chocolate cake that my daughter made and of course she thought I should have a “black” tablecloth.





A full day!! I didn’t have time to think about getting old at all. !!! Thank you to my wonderful family!!! They are all so special!!

Thanks for sharing my birthday with me. ~Sara
