My Birthday!!!

Finally made it to old age!!! I turned 55 on Feb. 4th. Not sure exactly what happened, but Thursday I was still young, and Friday I was a senior citizen! There oughta be a law!!!

Michael and Angela took me to dinner Friday night. We met at Cracker Barrel then when the wait was too long, went across the road to I-Hop and had my favorite omelet. Very yummy!

Saturday night, the family met at my brother and sister-in-law's for dinner. Wendy cooked - and she out-did herself! She made my version of "Tacos Don Bravo" - which I'd had in Houston, TX. Is fajita beef rolled in flour tortillas, covered with enchilada sauce and cheese and baked. Once done, they are topped with sour cream, tomatoes, lettuce and accompanied by refried beans and Mexican rice. She did a terrific job!!! But the best part was dessert! She made a chocolate truffle cheesecake that had a chocolate cookie crumb crust and ganache on top! To die for!!! Just wanted to thank her for all her efforts!

Got a very nice sweater (that I helped pick out), some great bath stuff, and a gift certificate for clothes, not to mention a cute card from my dad and a check.

Don't think I could have asked for a much nicer birthday!

MY birthday is also Feb 4th (age 48). My sister's is also Feb 4th (um, 53 I think). Geeze, maybe we should start a club or something.
