Beautiful orchids from Vicki, Nikka and Emma….(and also jammies)
Mom came over and Nikka showed her all my birthday wishes on Facebook. She loved it, soooo cute!
Then it was time to look at all the birthday cards…
O.K., enough of all that….lets eat!!!!
Yummy Gourmet 88 has the very best Chinese food!
Time for CAKE….lets hear it for the CAKE!
Mom & Kita sharing a moment together….”That’s it….oh a little to the right please.”
Later that evening Olga & George came over with wine and beautiful flowers. It wouldn’t be a birthday without seeing them!
Sunday afternoon Amanda & Pete were here for a private class & I couldn’t think of a better way of spending a birthday weekend!
Mid week, Molly & I saw ‘Love is All You Need’ and I certainly LOVED this movie!
Along the way we encountered what the owner said is a Chocolate Lab but at 120 lbs., don’t you think a Mastiff got in there somewhere???
Carnivore time at Houston’s….
Sweet roses from sweet Diana…..
Thank you Colleen, this will make a terrific dish lid!
….and Kathy painted the most exquisite Peonies in class….
!It was a wonderful class, so soul satisfying and everyone did beautifully!
Party central said it was time to head on over to Gordon Ramsay’s at The London in West Hollywood. Jim Reilly helped Sandie, Lauren & me celebrate! Sandie Girl I LOVE my little Panda…..thank you sooooo much!
Jim made sure we all got a birthday plate. Thank you Jim, that was soooo thoughtful!
This was Lauren’s New York Steak & King Crab
…..I announced that I wasn’t going to share my Bone Marrow Toast. (Being an only child I wasn’t there when that lesson was taught.) Can you see my Mai Tai???? That little stick had two of the most delicious dark cherries on it….
I think this was Jim’s Potato Gnocchi with Parmesan, Asparagus & Morels. I got a taste of the Asparagus because it was wrapped in bacon & as it was my birthday and knowing my love of same, Jim offered me half.
This was my Beef Filet with Duck Fat fries & Peppercorn sauce. (And yes, I shared.)
Did anyone say dessert?….Jim’s English Sticky Toffee Pudding was voted to be best.
Lauren’s Lemon Meringue Tart was second.
My Apple thingie was just too ginormous…...
Sandie’s Pineapple Cake with Caramel Sauce & Cherry Ice Cream!
So, it’s the end of a perfect birthday week and I’m delighting in so many beautiful memories….heartfelt thanks to all!
