Thursday afternoon, Ralph and I were scheduled to meet with his family to celebrate my birthday and Ralph’s sister Maddie’s birthday.
Balloons from Ralph’s cousin, Lynne-one for Maddie, One for Me…Thank You, Lynne!!
Maddie and Me, taken by me! I’m sometimes better at this than at other times. This one is pretty good!
We were having lunch at the Adelphia Restaurant. My history with this restaurant is not always positive, but I’ve finally found something I really like. It is the layered caprese salad.
Tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, spring mix, carrots, red onion with a balsamic vinaigrette.
It was delicious!
The flower came with it and reminded me of all the staging we did on Saturday at the wedding!
Happy Birthday to Us!
A better photo of Maddie and Me by Ralph. I realize that from these photos it looks like it was only Maddie and Me, but the total of our party was 8. I just thought the focus should be on the Birthday Girls…is that self-centered? Well, it IS my birthday month right?!? 😉
My portion of cake along with my lovely salad flower! Did I need to eat another piece of cake? Of course not. But that’s all I’ll be eating. The rest of the cake went home with Maddie and her husband, George. She’s going to freeze it and eat it when they want to. I was firm about the fact I didn’t want it coming home with us and thank goodness Ralph backed me on it!
Ralph’s cousin, Kathie brought flowers for each of the Birthday Girls. Thank you, Kathie!
Please take note of the vase…one of my antique mason jars. They make a great vase!
So pretty! I love having fresh flowers in the house…especially when the look like Fall!
There’s no telling what all of this celebrating will mean for my Weight Watchers weigh in on Saturday morning. I could go without weighing because I am at goal and I only have to weigh in once a month. But I need to weigh in for me. I need to know how I’m doing. It’s one of my best tools for keeping myself on track. We’ll see.
