More Birthday Month Fun!

September 15th:  Had a fantastic time with 2nd grandson (and his mommy) at the Oklahoma WONDERtorium in Stillwater, OK. It’s an interactive children’s museum that is just amazing!

September 16th:  A friend from graduate school days at OSU-Stillwater was in town with her husband and darling little boy. I haven’t seen Darcy and Fred for six years. We got to visit for a little while – great fun! I didn’t have my camera with me. Dang it!

September 18th:  My birthday! Very full and amazing day! Started the day with breakfast with 2nd daughter at Panera – Yummm!

Had a birthday lunch at Louie’s Grill and Bar with some new wonderful friends I have met through the Heart Link Network – for women entrepreneurs. Thank you, Karrie, for arranging this celebration (and for my lunch!).

An article about Benjamin Boo Books was published in the Stillwater’s Community Connection e-newsletter today. Woo! Hoo!  http://www.stillwatercommunityconnection.com/?p=13545

Tuesday afternoon, went to my favorite spot to have a birthday granita (frozen coffee) break with my friend and favorite barista (and owner of The Daily Grind), Ginger.

Then headed for Oklahoma City to shoot a commercial for the OKC Community Foundation. Great director and crew. The weather was perfect (we were shooting outside on a rooftop). The actor who played my husband in the scene was amazing to work with – our first time working together.

After I finished with the commercial shoot, I was blessed to have dinner with my dear friend, JoAnn, and her niece and family.

Aren’t these two little ones just adorable?!? It was a double celebration because JoAnn had received an “all clear” report on her mammogram after breast cancer surgery last year. Hurray!

Donna (JoAnn’s niece) made yummy cookies and put a candle in one for me. Thank goodness I didn’t have to try to blow out 62 candles! Oh, and don’t you just love the extra makeup I was still wearing from the commercial shoot?!?!?

My birthday “day” also included calls from 1st daughter and sons-in-law, cards (with surprises) in mail, texts, and many birthday wishes on Facebook. A very full and exciting day!

More birthday month to come. . .

      One of the “problems” when we get together is that we laugh, and laugh, and laugh. . . Who knew life could be so funny? We just find the humor in it. 🙂 Thank you for your wonderful friendship!
