Random Tuesday....Birthdays and Ball Games!!

Yes boys and girls!  It is that time again!  Random Tuesday!  Grab a Mimosa and some pretzels and come along for the ride.  I will try to stay on the road as best as possible.

Birthday girl here (me) had a fabulous celebration!  Not only did I get my new large, flat screen TV!  But I also had fabulous lunches and a terrific dinner at St. Clair's Winery and Bistro.  (They actually have a vineyard in Deming, NM. and make their own wines)  Fabulous place, located on Rio Grande Blvd. in Albuquerque, NM!!

I had a lovely dinner!  Our good friends, Paul and Cheri, took us out for dinner.  How sweet is that!

 I had the Mac n Cheese, which is TDF!!!

As well as a wonderful Chardonnay produced by none other than St. Clair's Winery.  Yum!!

Paul and Cheri also gave me the most wonderful gift!  (Besides dinner and wine)  A hot pink leather Betty Boop purse!!  How cool is that!?!  I love the color pink and Betty Boop is my fav.  I just love her!!  Her and Kewpie!  Oh how I heart them both!!

Isn't that the coolest purse you have ever seen??  Thanks Paul and Cheri!!  I love her!!

And there was baseball!!  Yep!  Went to a game at the Isotopes Field!  And we won!!!! 

That is their mascot...Orbitz!!  (Shhhhhh!  Orbitz is a girl!!)

I had a great time!  Eating pizza and caramel corn!!  Just what a girl needs who is trying to lose weight, don't you think?  Ha!  Oh!  And there was fireworks after the game as well!!!  The best time ever!!

While having a good time at dinner...I left the restaurant and my camera was still on our table.  I did not discover it until the next day!!  So Dr. John and I returned to St. Clairs', had lunch and retrieved my camera!!  Whew!!  Great lunch too!!  Fruited Chicken Salad!!  Yum!!

July 5th spent the day at the cinema!!  Saw Eclipse and Knight and Day!  Love Cameron Diaz!!  She is so beautiful and a wonderful actress.  Tom Cruise....not so bad either!  Loved Eclipse!!  The battle scene is awesome...I give it a A-!!  And Knight and Day had us laughing all the way through and yet there is plenty of action!  I give it a B+!!  Both are worth seeing!!

Well another 4th bites the dust and mine was terrific!!  I hope all of you had wonderful celebrations with your family's and friends.  Don't forget to stop by The UnMom and check out her randomness as well as others.  Great fun!  Then grab the linky thingy and join in!!

Have a magical and blessed day!  Back to jury duty for me this week?!  Hope they pass me by!!

Hugging you

Happy Birthday SueAnn!! What a busy fun-filled day!

Alix said...

Oh gurrrrrrl.... you are looking so fine! So hot! So hot pink, even!

The Betty bag suits you. Well, except that her face is much fuller than yours. You are shrinking at the speed of light. Don't turn sideways or we might lose you.

Love you much! Great Randomness as always, PLUS i got to hear Mariah sing in Spanish before she became a freaky incoherent spectacle. LOL. Girl can sing!

Have a great post-Fourth week. Loved the fireworks photo!

Hi SueAnn,

That sounds like a most heavenly birthday. Dinner looks great and your new bag is gonna be a ton of fun to carry around eh? I love pink too. Have fun with it.

Luck you about your camera! I've known people who have left cameras on their dinner table only to go back and have the staff tell them they have no idea where it could have gone. hmmmm . . . .

Thanks for the movie recommendations. I'll check them out. Glad you had a nice birthday. :)

Hugs! =D
