Random Tuesday ~ Birthdays, Puppies and New Cars !!

Stacy July, here we come!  You don't scare us!  We can handle the heat, the noise and the copious quantities of cookout foods!!  Ha!!

 My birthday came and went with just the right amount of fanfare!  Dinner with good friends at The Melting Pot, a fondue restaurant was wonderful.  Had just the right amount of food, which we of course, cooked ourselves.  Some of the men-folk complained about this!  Ha! 

I had a Yin and Yang Martini which was their version of a Chocolate Martini and it was sweet, cool, beautiful and delish!!  All done up in black and white chocolate!!    They gave us two stainless steel pots to cook from and we could have used a couple more.  It was difficult reaching the pots!  The tempura batters were tasty, but again...hard to cook with only one pot for six!!  All in all, we all decided we probably wouldn't come back....pricey and overall, not enjoyable to prepare the food!   Just too difficult!

Cheri, Butch and I got our toes and nails preened and beautified!  We are styling now!  Arin did a fabulous job on mine.  He always does; but this time, he outdid himself!!

Dr. John finally bit the bullet!  He bought a new car to get him to work and back every day!  A commuter vehicle.  And it is so cute!  A 2013 Prius C in a light teal blue!!  His first trip into town, he was able to get 72
MPG!!!  Amazing and so quiet.  Hybrids are new for us, so it all amazes us!!

He put the 1994 Toyota truck out to pasture with over 365,000 miles!!  And over-heating at every hill!!  Ha!

Ottis received a haircut...well actually a trim and he wasn't a happy camper.  But he looks so adorable!

How is that for cuteness!!!  Definitely Grandma's boy too!  Where I go...he goes!  He has faired well his first week here and he definitely has me smitten!

My second oldest granddaughter, Cassie, turned 21 the day before my birthday!  We celebrated at Chili's and had Watermelon Margaritas!!  Yummy!

She was thrilled!  She is going with her friends to Las Vegas to celebrate!  They are going to have a blast!

Next week I will be drawing the name for the $25.00 Amazon Gift Certificate!  My birthday gift to all of you! !   Thanks so much for visiting each and every week!  You make my day for sure.  If you didn't leave a comment last week, do so this week and I will count you in!!  Good luck!

Grandkids are coming...grandkids are coming and oh what fun we will have!!  Classes at will take jewelry/small metals and one will do Film/Video class!  And that is just the beginning!  Georgia, 17 years old and Lee Jr., 14, will be here for two weeks and we always have a good time together!

Our friends at IHeart Radio, 100.3 The Peak, will be hosting the Albq Zoo Day this Wednesday and we are going to try to attend.  I haven't been to the Zoo for several years, so this ought to be interesting.  I say that because I always hate to see beautiful, wild animals in enclosures!  Sigh! 

My BFF, Cheri made me the most beautiful earrings and cuff bracelet for my birthday!  She outdid herself for sure.  And she and Butch gifted me with a huge bottle of Absolute Vodka!!!  Ahhhhhhh!  Martini's for the year...gotta love it!

Ottis is snoozing on my lap; Dr. John is snoozing in bed and I have reached the end of this broadcast!  Ha!
I think I will stretch out on the couch and watch the morning news!  But it doesn't end here...Stacy, over at Stacy Uncorked is still open and has many new items to share!  So stop on over and tell her hello.  She would love to meet you!

Have a magical and blessed day!
Hugging you

Taht cake looks great. I definitely have to try and make a lopsided cake next time instead of the buttercream monster I created in spring. Just want to stay away from fondant, don't like it one bit!

I had a great comment all formulated in my head until I saw the watermelon margarita - Mmmmmmm! Now I'm distracted. And craving a watermelon margarita! :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! So glad you had a fabulous time - that cake looks amazing! Was that your B-Day cake? LOVE the idea of a fondu place - yummy!! LOVE your nails! He really did outdo himself, didn't he? :)

The jewelry your friend made for you is so pretty!! And pretty cool, too. ;)

Now I am tempted with all these.
I have set my heart on the last piece of ornament. :)
