Yesterday was my birthday. I was 42. We celebrated the whole weekend. I was off Friday and went fishing with some friends. It was the first day of fishing season in NC. We caught 12 fish and had a great fish fry that evening. Yesterday morning DH gave me breakfast in bed. About 4 he said we were going out for dinner. So I got ready and when we got to the restaurant he had a surprise party for me. He told everyone not to bring gifts-which was fine with me but a few brought stuff anyway. The food was awesome and he had a birthday cake too. It was a great evening with friends. Today my mom cooked me chicken 'n dumpling and pound cake. That is what I want every year. And it was delicious! She said to leave her a bowlful of the dumplings and a some cake and I could take the leftovers with me. It has been one of the best birthdays I have had in a while! It was a great weekend!!!
