Happy Birthday to me!

My 51st birthday was yesterday. I spent the day very quietly. I decided not to do any college homework as my celebration! I opened cards I had received and talked on the phone with my mom, my friend Marsha, and I had the cutest phone call from Jenny and Morgan who sang happy birthday to me twice! Totally adorable!!

I got darling ecards from my birthday triplets, Tammy and Tanya (one lives in Canada and the other in California!) and one from Kat (Just a Beach Kat) and Dana (The Stone Rabbit). Kat's featured all these different cakes and Dana videotaped the Stone Rabbit celebrating my birthday with a Mizzou hat and birthday candles!! TOOOOOO CUUUTTEEE!

I received over 140 Facebook birthday wishes. I was overwhelmed and so grateful.

Bob fixed a totally luscious steak, brussel sprouts, baked sweet potato and garlic bread. It was so yummy. My friend Letha had made a layer spice cake for me and we had that as well. I had a glass of wine that was fabulous!

  1. Terri, I am so sorry I missed your birthday. A belated Happy 51st Birthday, to you!!

    We are headed home this morning. Had a great time, even with the cold rainy days. Sort of put us in the Christmas spirit.:-)

  2. SO glad you had such a pleasant celebration! Sometimes the quiet ones are the nicest of all!

  3. It does sound like you had a great birthday celebration, Terri! Your dinner sounds wonderful!

    Glad you took a break from your college work to totally enjoy your day.

    We had a splendid day in KC today! Lots of sunshine and pleasant temps. . . so different from Mon. and Tues.. Well, it IS Missouri, isn't it? Never a dull moment in the weather department.

    Have a great weekend! Dana

    Happy belated birthday Terri! How wonderful to receive so many wishes from all over. Sounds like Bob really prepared a delicious dinner for you. I am one year older than you. I hope you are steadily feeling stronger and better and that the year ahead is full of blessings!

  5. And again I say HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!...wish I were close by to lift a glass and sing it to you in person...nah, you'd rather skip the singing!!!

  6. Happy Happy Birthday, Terri!!
    Do you think I could borrow Bob for a couple of nights? My family could use a dinner like that;)

  7. Being sick has made me totally rude.

    Happy Birthday, Terri!!!
