First, we all went to the bus stop to surprise Shaba Girl who had early dismissal. She was so happy to see us all waiting for her! It was so precious to see Shaba Girl and Sweet Girl walk hand in hand back to the house.
After we got back, we ate lunch (I brought chicken leftovers) and had some down time. It was nice to just relax and hang out.
Before I knew it, dinner time had rolled around. My mom ordered dinner online at Outback for curbside pick-up. (My parents paid for the meal as a birthday present to me and Papa Bear--my husband's new screen name.) It was hard to wait for Papa Bear to come back with the food. Everyone was so hungry! He also got me a frappuccinno from Starbucks. (Two in one week and I hadn't had one in years!)
The girls had the macaroni and cheese and baked sweet potato. The adults had coconut shrimp, Bloomin' Onion, cheesy fries and bread. My mom and I shared a blue cheese chopped salad. As if that wasn't enough yumminess (is that a real word?) for one night, there was a surprise dessert!
My mom had ordered a large Thunder from Down Under dessert to serve as my cake. She presented it with one orange (my favorite color!) candle. Everyone sang "Happy Birthday" and I blew out the candle. Pap-poo use to always sing "and many more" at the end. Since she passed away, everyone sings that part now. I missed that this year.
Everyone got a little piece of the Thunder from Down Under. It's very rich, but oh so good!
It was a very nice impromptu party and and birthday!
Everyone was full, tired and ready to go home by the end of the night! It was a very special day for me. I got to spend my birthday with my girls, Papa Bear was able to join us, we got treated to dinner and dessert and I got to see my parents and Shaba Girl. So thankful. So blessed.
