Well, I'm getting ready to turn the big 5-0!  When my son told me he wanted to have a party last week and requested that I make some food, I thought about it later, and a little light bulb went off in my head.  I thought, "I bet that party is really for me and I'm making food for it.  My family is so sneaky!"  Ha.  They got me.  It really was just a party for him being cancer free a year!

So then Sunday when a friend of ours said to come over to eat Sunday night, I was a bit suspicious.  I was right.  Except it wasn't just a few friends from church - lots of family too!  They got me there.  We had a nice - really nice dinner and it was decorated with lots of pretty touches, including some old glamour shots of me - funny!  The hubs even had a few nice words to say about me.  It was a great evening and I truly appreciated it.

 My Aunt and cousin

 Delicious Chocolate cake with layers and layers of ganache from S. Carolina!

My sweeties!  The only thing that would've made it better would be for my daughter to be there.  She was there via FaceTime.  Turning 50 isn't so bad when you get parties like this!

It looks like a great party!
In August my dad turns 60 and we're planning a party for him.

There is no way you're 50! No. Way. I pray I look half as good as you at 50. Congrats!
