Happy Birthday to ME

Well another year and my birthday has come and gone but oh what a great celebration I had.  We went down to stay with my daughter a day early and that evening we went out for a Birthday Dinner with her, her family and my younger brother Kenny and his family.  We went to Grill Smith in Clearwater and what a fabulous meal we all had... they even brought out this incredible dessert for my birthday ~ it was sinful! Chocolate Decadence, made-from-scratch, flourless mocha-chocolate cake, topped with chocolate mousse, whipped creme and a raspberry glaze ~ YUM

We had so much fun and our waiter was one of the best we've had in a long time. (at least a week) He really knew the meaning of customer satisfaction.  If you ever get a chance to visit a Grill Smith Restaurant I highly  recommend it. 

My daughter Denise, Frank and the twins Dominick & Wyatt ~ Nephew Ryan ~ Brother Kenny & wife Kathy
On my birthday which was Monday my husband Ralph, daughter Denise, the twins and I went out for lunch to a Mexican restaurant "Valartas" in Tampa ~ Mexican is my very favorite food.  After a GREAT meal their we went to Jared's so my daughter could have her rings check and to my surprise my Honey had bought me a beautiful Chocolate Diamond Ring... I was so excited!!! My daughter bought me a new charm for my Pandora Bracelet & some Herbs for my little Herb Garden that I haul all over the nation ~ you know how much Ralphie likes that...

The evening was topped off with Greek Gyros for dinner and a Ice Cream Birthday Cake
Birthday Candles

I've Been a BAAAAAAD Blogger

The knees are better, the colds have past, and so has the Holidays ~ The New Year blew in and now I am approaching my birthday.... along with February rapidly coming. Yet I have not blogged a single thing since December 2nd ~ I didn't even finish up my travels with our dear friends through wonderful Cape Breton but I will soon.  Blogging is something I love to do but somehow I haven't had the desire to be even on and not only that I have not been following my friends which I love to do.  So here I am re-establishing my good blogger habits... I hope you are all still out there and will come back to read our adventures.

we baked a ton of cookies

Christmas holidays were hectic but fun ~ I stayed down with my daughter for almost 4 weeks and really enjoyed being with them all especially my GRANDS. We baked dozens & dozens of Christmas cookies & desserts.

A wonderful Christmas dinner was shared with many relatives and friends... everyone was pretty full and enjoyed chatting, watching football and old Christmas movies.
I am pretty sure everyone got everything they wanted and more!
The kids were very happy ~ and we enjoyed a great day of good food, Family & Friends
We brought in the New Year watching Dick Clark's Rocking New Years Eve Party on TV and the next day we just hung out and had our traditional Good Luck dinner of Black Eyed Peas, Cabbage, Greens and Ham... It was very yummy!
Good Luck & Health
This week we went to the Florida RV Super Show and met up with Friends and also with Blogging & Facebook friends... We ran into a few of our friends we haven't seen in a long time too... was really a lot of fun!

Me, Arlene, Nancy & Elaine ~  My Ralphie ~ Entertainer
