I Feel So Celebrated!

Yesterday was my 58th birthday, yes that's right, 58 years!  And, my family and friends outdid themselves in making me feel very celebrated.
This gorgeous bouquet arrived from a dear friend about 8:30A.M.
  A few days ago another dear friend from Arkansas sent me a "Party in a Box."  It was 2 boxes filled with all kinds of goodies and I had the best time opening them and pulling out all the cute and cleaver items.
Clancy had a good time helping his CiCi open the boxes
There was a brightly colored Birthday Plate

Candles for a cake
Plates, napkins, and banner for the party
As you can see, she didn't forget a thing! When my daughter saw all of the items she informed me that she would like to have all of the items to use for my "birthday dinner" last night. So, I was glad for her to put them to good use and knew that my friend would be equally thrilled.
The birthday banner was hung and the cake was made to match all the other items.
 My daughter and daughter in law put together a "meal fit for a Queen." We had grilled pork, stuffed baked potatoes and salad and of course, birthday cake for dessert.  The event was held at our daughter's home and she did outdid herself in her preparation and invited my Dad and step Mom to share in the celebration. It could not have been better!!

Hubby topped off the day by bringing in this beautiful arrangement


One of the cutest birthday cakes I've ever seen
Yes, I felt "celebrated" and very blessed all day long!
