It is a week after my 40th birthday and it has been a memorable week.
On the day of my birthday I was treated to a pancake breakfast with my girl friend Suzanne who had invited by surprise my Sister-in-law Deb. Her husband had make the pancakes with all sorts of toppings, sausage, bacon and we toasted with Mimosa's....yup there was champagne involved and why not!
Thursday night we went over to my in-law's for Indian food(my favorite) and a four layer chocolate cake, yum!
Friday night we went out to dinner at Foxwoods Resort to Shrine and had some awesome sushi rolls. We spent a little time at the slots, I managed to win some, cashed out and walked away even.
Saturday was the big one. Melissa, my Sister-in-law took me out for a pedicure, lunch and shopping in the early afternoon, something I generally do not do. Driving in the driveway I wondered what the fleet of cars were at my house, SURPRISE! A Laua themed birthday, co-ordinated by my husband with the help of friends and family. Cannot believe they managed to keep it a secret. My daughter had a grass skirt on running around the back yard, she looked so cute! About an hour into the party, I started to not feel so good. I basically ended up in the bathroom all night long what what seemed to be food poisoning. Did not get to enjoy the wonderful food and the pineapple pistachio cake they had given me. Everyone else seemed to enjoy themselves, thankfully!
Mother's Day was a wash, slept most of the day recovering only to start to feel back to normal about 8pm. A week I will never forget.
