Birthday Surprise

Hi everyone! 
It's been a busy week here, and I'm sorry I haven't posted or visited y'all much. 
We're so thankful that we finally sold my mom's place, and to top it off ... today is my birthday!

Hubby bought me flowers, and we went to breakfast at one of my favorite "mom and pop" restaurants. 
I had the usual Southern breakfast ... eggs, sausage, grits and biscuits. Sorry, no photos ... I was too busy stuffing my face.

Then, in the afternoon, my aunt and cousin arrived with bags of goodies to set up for a little surprise party.
I was really surprised, because I was in my grubby yard clothes. So, I ran to change before the rest of the cousins and neighbors arrived.

Hubby also got me a cake that was shaped like a bouquet of roses.

It was made with cup cakes ... Yum! 
We also had pimento cheese and spinach dip with crackers, two kinds of ice cream ...

... and a fresh fruit bowl.

I got lots of cards and hugs ... it was the best birthday ever!

Hope y'all have a great week. I'll be by to visit everyone soon.

And here I was being all excited about a bag of Krystals. I am going to show this post to my Bob.

Happy Birthday Festival, cuz you get a week. Besides that lets me off the hook for being so lax.

That care is the cutest cake I have ever seen. What a clever idea. Your family was so sweet to plan a surprise.I was so glad to here that they had some pimento cheese on hand.

Happy Birthday dear friend.
