Let them eat cake!

Not Miss Merry :(

Good morning everyone! I had a great time last night! It was probably one of my best birthdays ever. I got to have a day all to myself to do what I want. I got to have lunch with my BFF. I spent 1-1/2 hours at Altell (wait, that wasn't a good part). I was hoping to get my new phone but they won't let me until next Fri. Something about being within 90 days of your contract expiring. Well, why didn't you just tell me that when I got here instead of wasting my time?! *end rant*

As someone mentioned last night, I don't just celebrate THE DAY, I celebrate the whole week...sometimes longer. Mostly it started on Thurs morning when I got myself a salon spray tan. I look like I spent a week on Barbados (I wish). But the nice part is...no tan lines...anywhere. Then on Thurs night I got a manicure. I just love getting beautified. Sometimes I am such a girly-girl! So being sufficiently pampered I had to have a new Birthday Dress!





We first went to The Wine Room for a pre-dinner drink. My friend Jane gave me a decorated glass for my birthday. It is beautiful and had people giving me well-wishes all night. Way more sophisticated than a hat!









Doc, Patrick's Mommy, Apple Hubby and I all had a couple drinks and then went across the street to dinner. It was a beautiful night so we sat outside. All was great, listening to some live music when there was some screeching. These 2 little girls were dancing and singing, which got us to talking about Karoke. Now, I love me some Karoke. One of my previous lives had me working in a bar that had karoke every month. It was a great time to stay after shift and sing a few tunes. I wonder if Doc has the same position on this as Rock Band. After all, isn't karoke like making fun of the "real" songs?
Anyway, after dinner we all went back to The Wine Room and I got my heel stuck in the door jam going in. Not the best way to make an entrance. Here we were joined by my BFF and his wife. BFF took one look at me and asked if I was sober....Hell No! Apple Hubby decided to give me my present since everyone was there. Isn't it cute? -->


No, seriously...he got me a custom made belly button ring with a dangling emerald. It is BEAUTIFUL! I'll try to get pics of it up later.





Anyway, the cake was yummy. This picture is not exactly what it looks like but you get the idea. The best part of the whole night was that I got to spend time with people I enjoy, drink wine and have everything be all about me. What more could a girl ask for...except maybe some pie?! Of course I got virtual pie bright and early yesterday from Doc, Mt Cat and Absolut. Thanks for making my birthday great Blogger Buds!

I went out last night? Next thing you will try to tell me is that I called Mt. Cat, or that I was impressed with the quality of paper napkins. That Beer was GOOD! It was great to get out for an evening!

LOL @ I got my heel stuck in the door jam going in.

And no... karaoke is fine (as long as you can sing)

Doc said...

BTW - I wonder if anyone else has gotten the unintended irony of the title of this blog post...LOL

As American as Apple Pie said...

What do you mean unintended?

Doc said...

Because there is no way you would have intended 'let them eat cake' if you understood what it meant... LOL

Lesley said...
