HAPPY 63 TO ME


We celebrated my birthday last Sunday. It was unsure if Mark was going to be out of town this weekend so we celebrated early. (Turns out he is home) We stayed in and had a lovely steak dinner, sauteed mushrooms, mashed potatoes, corn and warm bread. 

It was nice being waited on and I was also supposed to do nothing for a few days after my angiogram so it was perfect. I even had to have my steak cut up! We normally go out for our birthday celebrations but since I asked for the trip to Chicago as my gift I thought staying in would be fun. 

Adam and Tristen brought me tulips and sunflowers along with Macaroons. It was my first time eating them. I don't know why I never tried them when I was in Paris 3 years ago.  Mark bought me yellow roses and Amber had picked up the cute S&P shakers to add to my collection. I was also given a gift card for Hallmark from the kids. 


 This card from Amber was perfect! 
 And the card from Adam & Tristen was also too cute.
Has a little Eiffel tower hanging from the ribbon!

We had a delicious Pumpkin Streusel pound cake for dessert. I made some fresh whipped cream too! 

We will probably go and get my free Red Robin burger tonight or over the weekend. I also have coupons for other free birthday things like a Baskin Robins 31 Flavors cone or a Blizzard from DQ! 

I'm sorry I haven't been around much. Still not feeling well. Having good days and bad days. Had a follow up appointment with the cardiologist yesterday. He is sending me for a CT Scan today so I would appreciate your prayers. 

Hope your weekend is perfect.......

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you!! Guess we both celebrated on Sun. Your celebration sounds more like how I usually celebrate mine. This year was such a big one though, lol. Praying you get some answers soon so you can be on to a solution. Enjoy your week-end!

i'm guessing yellow flowers are your favorite. :) i'm hoping your continued tests will reveal something that can be corrected easily to bring you relief!

Happy birthday Debby! What a way to spend it though with getting a CT scan, but I'm sure you'll be glad to get some answers if anything shows up on it. What great celebrating you had! I can't remember if I have ever had macroons now that I think about it, but I think they must be the new in thing or something since I see a lot of advertising for them.

Saying a prayer for you.

Hi Debby! Happy Birthday!! I'm so glad that the family was around to celebrate. What a fun idea to have Paris themed gifts! Those macaroons look so colorful and yummy! I'm not much for coconut, so as long as there aren't any in there, I'll share with you!

I'm sorry to hear that you still don't feel great. You know that I will pray for you, as I have in the past. I hope this passes soon. Maybe the Dairy Queen will help!
Happy Weekend Debby,
Ceil

Happy belated birthday and am so sorry you are dealing with health issues. I've been out of town and away from reading blogs for about a week so I didn't know this. Wishing you all the best and prayers for a speedy recovery!

I hope everything went okay with your CT Scan...

NanaNor's said...

Dearest Debby, I just don't know how I missed this and your birthday-please forgive me as I offer a belated birthday blessing. I have continued to pray for you, but again dropped the ball about your angiogram. Please let me know how you are doing now. I am generally more on top of things than this.
Hugs, Love and prayers,
Noreen

Sounds like you had a terrific birthday. I am so glad - they all love you so much.

It is nice to stay home sometimes and just have the family for memories.

I am sorry you are not feeling well - I hope they get to the bottom of it.

What is the CT for?
