Leap Day

Madsnapper and Chatty Crone - by Madsnapper - can you believe she has us smoking?

Now this is one of the big reasons I am so far behind (but it sure was worth it).

Now from left to right - this is Linda at A La Carte - Rose at A Santa Makers Journey - Denise who we are still trying to talk into blogging (she's Sue's best friend) - Cheri from Chez Cheri - and then Sue from Rue-Mouffetard .

Okay - this was what I did yesterday - you will have to go over to Sue's blog and check it out. And yes I am behind in reading and answering blogs and emails - sorry!

Now here are my gifts -

Now I'm going to play a game - Pick the correct girl with the correct gift and the one closest wins a prize. Not sure what yet. And no the five girls can't play.
And know I love them all!!!!!!!!!!!! I have a plan and a place for each... THANK YOU FRIENDS!

And no party is complete for us without food.

i bet that lunch group was fun! no guess on the match-up, though.

i love your last quote...

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Since I was there I would get them all right of course! It was a lot of fun! Enjoy your last year of being in your 50's!!! Hugs, Linda

momto8 said...

Shelly said...

What super fun! How I would love to have a real life lunch with all my blogging friends~

Cheri said...

Awww.... I guess I can't guess since I was there. Fun times.

Those desserts look so good and decadent, and here I sit with a bowl of grapes and looking forward to my cut-up apple this afternoon. I can tell you, although healthy and tasty, fruit can not come close to bringing the joy that you can get with a spoonful of chocolate and whipped cream.

Wanda's Wings said...

Sounds like super fun! That last quote is wonderful.

Jim said...

Hey, Sandie, HAPPY BIRTHDAY (late or I'd a' sung)!
Yesterday I didn't have a clue. ;)
Today I followed to Sue's blog.
You guys had a blast! Ate up a storm! Finished with SHOPPING!

Anyway, then for today,

Sweet Tea said...

What a great Birthday Party!!
I love that you had DESSERT!!
So many times a group of women won't order dessert.
I couldn't begin to figure out which gift was which, but they are all lovely and you are obviously well-loved!!

Blondee said...

Eva Ason said...

Lovely photos, and what a happy group ^_^
Beautiful presents too. I love birthdays and I'm happy to know that you had a great one! Well deserved. Mmmm that cake looks yummy.

Ginny said...

Did Sandra really make that for you? What rascals you are, I hope your parents don't get ahold of you! Happy Birthday!!!! It's a butterfly theme, and you got awesome gifts, these girls have GOOD TASTE!! So many gifts to match up, I won't even try, I always get these things wrong. Is the beautiful butterfly collage made by your friend?

Maple Lane said...

Looks like you and the girls had a great time! Thanks for the links; I'll enjoy visiting.

Jill said...

Wow! What a great time and you hauled in some very lovely gifts! I'm glad you enjoyed yourself, girl!

What a fun time! I adore the gifts you received. I don't think I'll try to match them up though. What fun it would be to meet fellow bloggers.

Ann said...

Looks like a fun time and love all your gifts. I haven't the slightest idea what came from who. I wouldn't mind having some of that desert though

Wow it must have been fun!!!!


Pondside said...

You lot certainly know how to have a great time! I wouldn't know where to start with the guessing, so I'm going to leave it to others who might know some of the gals from reading their blogs - I just know two of them.

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Happy Birthday, Sandie! I'm glad you had a fun time. :)

Jane said...

Oh, how I wish I could have joined you!


Starting Over, Accepting Changes - Maybe said...

Happy elated birthday Sandie!

Susan said...

Oh Sandie, sounds like you girls had a BLAST. You are so lucky to have other bloggers nearby to go out with. I'd do anything to have a blog buddy to do things with...go shopping, to concerts, etc. Alas, no such luck.

Anyway, sounded like soooo much fun. And ohhhhhh, that CHEESECAKE. yum yum yum yum yum Susan

Rob-bear said...

Looks like you all had a wonderful time. Which is the way one hopes birthday parties will go.

As for leap days, we need one of those every once in a while to keep up with our crone-ology. Or something like that.

Debbie said...

This sounds like just what the doctor ordered. How fun to spend the day with blogging ladies plus one hopeful recruit.

I don't know the ladies enough to venture a good guess, but I want to know who gave you that wonderful frame for your daughter and grandson's picture. I love that! They were all just as nice as can be.

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Oh, I know y'all had a BLAST! I couldn't begin to match gifts, but I'm glad you had such a great time. blessings ~ tanna

Angela said...

That looked like lots of fun Sandie! Don't worry about catching up. You deserve a break now and again! I've been preoccupied with myself lately and I'm not on top of my blogging at all.

You got such wonderful gifts too! I have no idea who gave you what so I won't even try! lol


Tweedles -- that's me said...

What a wonderful day- full of FUN!

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Oh Sandie! I missed your birthday? I am so sorry. Things have been crazy here lately.

Linda: blue cups.
Rose: The butterflies
Cheri: yellow vase
Denise: the heart mug
Sue: The picture

NO idea what I am doing. LOL
I don't really know the about a SHOT IN THE DARK!

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Well, dang!! I meant to say Happy Birthday!!

Grandma Bonnie said...

MMM, chocolate. Those are so nice gifts. Your party must have been fun. You have been tagged in 11 random things. Stop on over and check it out.

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

You all look like a fun bunch of gals! I don't have a clue on the match up so I'll pass on that. Glad you had such a fun day!

Tiffanee said...

Happy Birthday!! How fun was that! Love the mooning scarecrow!! What great gifts and I have no idea how to match them up!!
