Birthday News ~ My Family and Friends Spoil Me ~ and A Winner

It was such a beautiful day...
We celebrated out to lunch with daughter, hubby and his mom...
We chose to sit on the outdoor patio and had it almost to ourselves.
(I ordered my favorite sandwich...the BLT)
We also had dinner out at the downtown historic Alonzo Ward Hotel.
Lots of surprises...
flowers, friends, good food.
Seems we also had this place to ourselves.
Thanks to my family for planning this special night out on the town!
All of that should have been enough, but there were gifts too!
Thank you Stacy, Wetenkamps, LaFaves and Scott.
And doesn't everyone need a peacock on their patio?
Thank you Emily and Amy. He just makes me smile!
Don't think I forgot about the birthday giveaway...
There were 45 comments...
We printed them, cut them apart, 
mixed them up in my Rachel Ray garbage bowl (clean),
and then, picked the winner.
Stop over at her blog and say 'Hi'.


My day was perfect...becoming a 'senior' was really OK...
...thanks to my family, my friends,
and  to all of my blog friends that stopped in with Birthday wishes.
Thank you, everyone.

Take care,
~Natalie
