Birthday Weekend Extravaganza

Friday night I met up with my oldest (there is a joke there somewhere but I'll be kind) friend to celebrate our birthdays. My birthday was Saturday and her birthday is next Saturday. We went to our favourite restaurant Go Believe Sushi in Whitby. The food was wonderful as always but the service was a little quirky. Not bad...just strange, it certainly gave me and my friend lots of laughs.

Saturday I met up with 32.5 and we headed out to Uxbridge to check out a couple of sewing stores and have lunch. Of course I bought fabric, because it was my birthday and if I want fabric I'll buy it. LOL. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME...LOL. I was good though I only bought a little bit. I don't know, I think I am gaining some self control in my old age. 32.5 treated me to lunch at Frankie's Ristorante.

32.5 took some pictures of our adventure and gave me permission to steal some of them for my blog.




Can you tell how excited I am to be shopping for fabric? LOL

Saturday night my mom took me and my dad out for dinner. My dad's birthday is two days before mine. We went to Kelsey's in Oshawa.

Sunday was another nice day...spent with my parents. Went and did some shopping/bonding with my dad...and then my mom and I came over to my house to do some sewing. I actually didn't do any sewing...I ended up doing some housework but my mom finished up her row on my quilt. She even got to use the fancy sewing machine, so she was very happy...lol

Excellent work mom....you are becoming a real quilter.

Thank you 32.5 for a lovely lunch and afternoon on Saturday and for letting me steal some of your pictures. I can't wait to see your blog post.

It sounds like you had a great birthday! Isn't Frankie's great? DH took me there for Valentine's. My only complaint was that they had run out of the diabetic dessert. Sigh. Maybe next time...
