As mentioned in an earlier post, I celebrated birthdays pretty much the entire month of January! It was a great time and always makes the first month of the year fly by. Here’s a summary and pics of some of the birthday celebrations.
First up, on 1/2/12 was Gwen (mom-in-law) and Tyler’s (a great friend) birthday. We celebrated with Gwen at Fuddrucker’s with Mike, Heather and their 3 boys. I was getting over bronchitis and didn’t think to take any pics. We had a good time and Gwen loved her beautiful flowers and framed photo! As for Tyler, we didn’t get to celebrate together since she lives in Dallas but we wished her a Happy Birthday!
Next up on 1/4/12 was Becca’s (another good friend) and she lives in Lubbock, so we wished her a Happy Birthday too!
I have to mention that 1/5/12 was Tyler and Blake’s anniversary.
Lydia (best friend Bonnie’s mom) and Ethan (one of our nephews) had a birthday on 1/11/12. We wished Lydia a Happy Birthday, she lives in Del Rio! Heather and Mike threw Ethan an awesome “Car’s” themed party equipped with a retro slotcar racing track.
Here’s the adorable & delicious, made from scratch cake Heather created for Ethan:

Then there was my birthday on 1/12/12, we celebrated at Parkside Restaurant. We started with a tasty drink and some oysters:
I had the wreckfish for my entree, sadly the fish was WAAAAY over cooked (and Dave’s scallops too 😦 ….I wasn’t in the mood to complain, everything else was very good, like this mac & cheese with gruyere and cheddar:

Next it was Brian (my bestie in Lubbock) and Monique (another good friend) on 1/24/12. Monique celebrated her birthday at a Jazzercise session, I had a lot of fun and plan on doing some more Jazzercise in the future with Monique!

The final birthday celebration of January was Olga’s on 1/28/12. We started the night with a little wine & dessert shindig at her place and then downtown.
