Happy birthday, Ashley!
Our sweet and only daughter, Ashley was born at 11:29 a.m. on October 24 in 1985. It was in the middle of the 1985 Interstate 70 World Series between the KC Royals and the St. Louis Cardinals. I remember that Brett Saberhagen's wife gave birth to a son during the Series, too!
That was 23 years ago, folks! And today, my lovely grown up daughter and I spent the day together doing wonderfully fun things!
We spent some time in Bath and Body Works, spending our free coupons for Wallflowers and buying just a little something to satisfy the coupon's requirements. Then we shopped at Ann Taylor, where Ashley works. We had lunch at http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifLes Bourgeois Winery where I had this lovely Bloody Mary (we call it a salad in a drink!) and Ashley had a glass of white Chardonel. We had wonderful goat cheese, fontina and pear paninis, too.
We did some antique shopping in Rocheport and finished up by taking in some of the lovely fall color around town. We came home and had some wonderful Red Velvet cake that Eric made from scratch for Ashley's birthday. It was soooo good.
Tonight she and Eric are having dinner together. I know they are having a lovely time. And, you are welcome, Eric!
