Wednesday - Hump Day - Valentines - Birthday

Disco the day after all that chocolate - looks a little warn out - and I am today - he peed in my daughter's bed - so for her birthday I am doing all the sheets today and hubby went to laundry mat to do the bedspread. I hope it is all cleared.

Okay - On to Monday - The five amigos from Blogland who have become dear friends: Linda, Sue, Denise -we are trying to talk her into doing a blog, Rose, and me. We went to Smokey Bones and had lunch - not only did we exchange Valentine's - they gave me a birthday party too!

Here is all my Valentine Loot - and I gave hubby a photo cube so now that he is retired he can sell, sell, sell, on EBay. Obviously we need to learn to use it better - but I was in a hurry.

Sue made me a chocolate cake - made me - chocolate inside and out and white chocolate on top! See that is goofy Chatty grinning at how she is going to eat this cake. I look whipped out and that cake is just what I am going to need to perk myself back up - and more make up!

Chatty loving that cake!

It was yummy - I can attest to that as well as the group here - thank you Sue!

Who says when you get 'older' you can't have fun?

Ginny said...

Maybe Disco peed the bed because of all the chocolate? Oh, the cake looks so good!!! We have a group of seniors ladies in our church called The Five Amigos!!! Isn't that such a coincidence! When you say photo cube, I think of the square acrylic thing that you put pictures on all sides and put on your end table. But you must be talking about a different kind of photo cube. Can't wait to see the birthday girl pictures!!! And to hear all about the day!

Kim said...

Well, Happy Birthday to ya! No better way to celebrate than with a bunch of friends and chocolate!

Love the pic of Disco too!

Home In The Hollow said...

Cheri said...

HAPPY B-DAY ... I MISSED IT...WHEN WAS IT? I am so glad that you had a nice B-day/Valentines lunch no one deserves it more and you had a great group of gals to have a good time with. Wish I was there.

Debbie said...

The whole day sounds wonderful, and the cake looks yummy. It's neat that you have blog friends who are in the flesh friends too.

Velvet Over Steel said...

It looks like you have Tons of Fun, Sandie!! & Disco does look worn out. Glad you weren't too upset with him. Poor baby had to peee...

So glad you had a great V-day too!
Thaks for all your support & love yesterday!! ~ Coreen xoxoxo

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Looks like you girls had a grand time!! That cake looks scrumptious, too. So glad you enjoyed your birthday/valentine's day with your friends. Hope you have another wonderful day tomorrow!

That corgi :) said...

so neat you have a group of friends like that Sandie that get together and do things and blog too (or at least most of them blog :) That was a very nice looking cake! I bet it tasted delicious. Disco did look a bit tuckered out; probably coming down from the "sugar high" of the chocolate. Good idea to sell things on eBay; I did that for a bit (and books on Amazon, it was fun; but no time now :)

enjoy Thursday!


Jo said...

Lovely Ladies, glad yall could get together and have fun.
Wish I was there too.

Sharon Kirby said...

You ARE going to share some of that cake, aren't you? It looks delicious, and I think your smile is one of those "anticipating a sugar high" grins!

Disco is adorable - Marty sleeps like that, too. I can't understand how they love to sleep in the most uncomfortable positions!!

Love your friends - it's good to have people to get into trouble with!! And for the record, it's a good thing I'm out here in California - if we lived any closer, there would be some BIG shenanigans!

xoxo to you :)

Buttercup said...

How did I miss your birthday??? Belated wishes for a very happy and healthy year. What a fun time and the cake looks fabulous!

ClassyChassy said...

Well, happy late birthday! You look great for a lady of 103!!! tee hee! Hope you enjoyed your little cake! The pics were wonderful!

Mevely317 said...

Whaaaaat? you had a birthday and didn't tell us????
Like the elephant ... I have a long memory - look out 2012. Hee-hee!

Let's see.... if I'm paying attention, Sandie, you and your daughter nearly shared the same day? How awesome is that?

Happy belated!

Angela said...

Hey Sandie!

Disco looks way too comfortable sitting beside someone in that chair! lol

I didn't realize your birthday is that close to mine! Your cake looked yummy!

BECKY said...

Okay...I'm confused. When is/was your birthday?? I really must write all these birthdays somewhere...where I won't lose them!

Sue said...

Sorry to have everyone think that they missed your birthday!! should have told them that we celebrated early...glad you liked the cake...and I love how we were referred to as your friends in the flesh.....That's a whole lot of flesh my friend....I would once again use my favorite reference to us as "The Real fat Housewives of Cobb County"....but I'm not sure if Rose and Linda are in our county??
But it would make for a great new reality show....they could just follow us all around eating....

Sharon said...

Love you blog! I especially love this little mouse that says "God Bless My Online Friends." It's adorable!

FishHawk said...

I am really that you had such a Happy Birthday! Did you follow Disco's example after all of revelry was over?

Carol said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! Many, many more awesome years to come.

I could be friends with everyone of those gals....they look like a ton of fun!

I hope you had a WONDERFUL day and it just kept getting better even after your post.

Smooches to Disco! Love to you!

Sandra said...
