I think one of the true blessings in life is friendship. Those people you know you can always count on either for support, help, a good shoulder, sharing, crying, laughter and everything in between. I've been so very blessed in my life to have a great circle of friends and family who are always in my corner no matter what. Always there to lend a helping hand, listen with a kind ear and have a laugh at my expense - let me introduce you to my sweet, kind friends who just did that - have a laugh at my expense :)
yes those sweet and kind gray haired stinkers showed up in their Sunday best for our Super Bowl party to help me ring in this
yup the BIG 50 is just around the corner - YIKES ( Man I want those glasses)
To open my front door and see 16 people all dressed up in such finery, well to say I was blown away would be putting it mildly - because my birthday wasn't even a blip on my radar that day it took me a minute to fully understand what the heck they were doing. Once they started to sing it clicked in (hey nothing gets by this girl, LOL). It was so much fun to see them all in the character of their outfit which they stayed in during the entire time they were there. A couple of the wigs did come off later on and a pair of bosoms where also dropped off after the meal (she had quite the set, LOL) and I am still laughing today while I think about what they all did. One of the couples owns an eye glass business and supplied everyone with some pretty special glasses for the event, there sure were some beauties in the group. Mr. Farmhouse asked me a few times before they arrived where Little Silver was and I was like "why are you worried about the camera". He said he was worried I was getting suspicious and quit asking. I of course didn't catch on, not a big shock here about that.
Now isn't this chicky something else - in real life she just started her own business as a "fashion consultant" selling waaaaay cute clothes - hey Les I'll buy what your selling, LOL
her first project was her hubby - wowzers what a hunk - don't you love the padded tummy, LOL - he reminds me of Elmer Fudd
this sweetie pie never put her purse down - even while cutting the cake she hung on to it (hey Libster - what's in the purse)
her golfer dude
who sported a little action on his cheek
this one had actual curlers in her hair - remember those hard plastic jobs with the picks to hold them in place - OUCH, she said she found them at a thrift store - great shopping Missy - looks like hubby was liking your rolled down nylons, LOL
What a happy couple - hey I'm digging that foxy neck warmer there sister - and hubsters looks just about to bust out of his fancy coat
A little smooching going on here
I think he looks like Jack Nicholson and she has that saucy little red french beret - ooo la la and her glasses remained crooked all night long
He reminds me of Mr. Rogers and she's very prim and proper and dressed so elegant with her fur cape
Her hat just cracks me up and she let me borrow it for my picture with the cake and I'm digging his big red rim glasses - stylin
What a great evening we had, lots of laughs, games and a little friendly wagering on the game. Like I said in the beginning Mr. Farmhouse and I are so very blessed to have such a great group of friends. It meant the world to me that they took the time to plan this and surprise me. We treasure their friendship and I will always remember this special day :). Thanks everyone for a wonderful surprise - your all the best.
Hey I can't leave Mr. Farmhouse out of the pictures -
So does anyone else out there having a case of the "lazies"? Like everyone else my days are full of lots of stuff, then when night comes along and I have a little extra time to read blogs and catch up on emails - I just can't muster up the energy to do it or anything else for that matter. Yikes I've turned into a slug at night. Maybe it's the mid-winter blahs that I'm feeling I don't know. But I need to "snap out of it" and get caught up on lots of things including what's happening in your neck of the woods. Am I alone in the "lazies" out there?
Check back Tuesday for a giveaway to celebrate the BIG 50. Have a wonderful weekend and see you Tuesday :).
Until Next Time
