I know it's been forever since I blogged....
life is busy!
I had a birthday....it was one of the big ones
I turned 60, oh my!
And it kind of feels weird but I'll tell ya
it makes me work harder exercising and harder
eating right. I want to see my grandchildren
grow up so really need to take care of myself.
And here's what happened 2 days before
Johnny and I went to Maggianos for dinner
he had made reservations and Jacquelyn and her crew
were going to meet us there
we get there and the hostess starts taking us down the
hallway where I know the private banquet rooms are
and I made a comment to Johnny.....
"this is weird, the private rooms are down here"
and without missing a beat, the hostess turned around
and said "Oh we are packed and using the private rooms
for overflow". Well, that made sense to me
but then we get there, they open the door and
there is all of my family, my siblings, 3 of my best friends
and everyone yells surprise!! wow, I was shocked
totally 100% surprised!!
and my sweetheart grandson Maddox (he is non-verbal) comes
running up to me, gives me a hug and runs back...haha.
Well it was just the most wonderful thing that has ever been
done for me on my birthday....except I did have a surprise a few years
ago when Jake and Jacquelyn
surprised me by cooking dinner for us.
I couldn't believe Johnny could do all of this but he told
me he was just paying for it all, that Jacquelyn our middle daughter
had planned it all, invitations, ordering the dinner, getting the cake
and even had some sweet flowers
and she did an excellent job!!
It was wonderful and I loved it
here are some pictures......
