46!!!

My birthday extravaganza!
It all started saturday morning, I had booked a room in the Green Valley Resort, again. I went early to pamper myself with a manicure and pedicure at their fabulous spa! I checked into my room, a little executive suite, just a large room, nothing like I had last time. I got ready for dinner and walked across the street to meet everyone at the claim jumper. It was the usual concert girls, Me, Tanya, Erin, Colleen and my hubby was our chaperone.
We headed back over to GVR where we went to my room for some cocktails before the concert, the girls had some birthday gifts for me, Yes, even at 46 they spoil me rotten! I love it!!
Charlie arrived and said, NO, NO, we can't hang out here...he headed down to the front desk and came back up with keys to my luxury suite again!! I love that room!!
Once we settled back into the suite, I continued opening my presents...Red Pots for my new kitchen, thank you Erin! A new purse from Tanya, fabulous fabric!! Handmade dishtowels, and a vintage bread tin for my new kitchen!! Thank you, Thank you!!! Colleen had already given me a 123 xpress cooker, but she was trying her hand at scrapbooking and came up with this adorable gift card holder shaped like a cupcake, all handmade..it is wonderful!!! Great job everyone, i love it all!! But most of all I love spending time with you and going to concerts!!


Speaking of concerts, it was Huey Lewis, Wow, he was fantastic! Better then ever, and he did not get all fat and ugly, he still looked great and sounded even better, he has a new CD out with soul music, my favorite music!! The songs were amazing...I am going to go download it on itunes soon!
The girls went home and Charlie and I retired to the suite life....once we awoke we headed down for coffee and crepes at the pancake house inside GVR. While charlie paid the bill I decided to sit down and play some quarter keno...I won two pots for a total of 1000.00, charlie sat down and hit a pot for 650.00. Gotta love quarter caveman keno!!

We packed up and went home with a song in our heart and money in our pockets!!
Thank you GVR for a funtime and Thank you to my friends for making my life worth living, I have so much fun when I go out with you all, you make me happy!
