i turned 46 on monday, although i still feel like i'm about 22 for some reason.... anyway, since we were all together on saturday, we (i) decided that it would be my "pretend" birthday, because tim would not be here for my "real" birthday! so we spent the entire day together as a family! first we got to see forrest get his belt promotion to purple best, which was a fun time! then we headed out for some lunch and shopping!
we went out to the beach area and ate at "reggae j's island grill" at pier park. we ate on the porch area, it was such a beautiful day, with a view of the gulf! i had one of my favorites, coconut shrimp, and they were delicious! it was a terrific meal! the guys then took me to "jake's at the beach" so i could get a new "life is good" t-shirt. if you don't have one....they are THE SOFTEST T-SHIRTS EVER!!! we also sampled a little fudge at a candy shop and just wondered a bit!
and today i received a beautiful red Christmas cactus from my friend, wyatt's ot, stacy for my birthday..... it just keeps going! my in-town girlfriends took me out to lunch today too! it was yummy and we laughed A LOT!!!
so this "kid at heart" had a lovely birthday week of celebration! hope you enjoy your birthday as much as i enjoyed mine! blessings......
