Happy Birthday To Me! =)

My weekend was full of fun and friends, and I feel more blessed than ever to be living the life I live. Last night about 30 friends came over to celebrate my birthday with me. My little shin dig was catered by Depot Market which is locally owned, and the waitress/bartender/super star was fantastic. I’ll definitely have her back here at Christmas. πŸ™‚ And the executive chef, Dave, did an amazing job with food preparation. Everyone loved it.

There are so many photos, and of course, I’m going to share a few…

These are some of my favorite ladies. πŸ™‚ Just saying.
The food was quite tasty, and the company was wonderful too. My friend, Sue, made friends around the table and kept watch over everything. See the little sliders? There were pulled pork sliders and cheeseburger sliders, and both were 3 WW points each – a fantastic calorie value in my opinion.
My cake was adorable…I loved it. πŸ™‚
Dave makes these chips himself, and they are life changing…seriously. OMG! The fiesta station was incredible.
And the reason I chose Depot Market – the highly anticipated international cheese platter. There are no words to describe how much I loved the pretty cheese! I had a few bites of it, and it definitely tasted as good as it looked.

The sushi came from my neighborhood sushi take-out restaurant, and the owner delivered twice as much as I had requested. He said “Just enjoy it.” I certainly did enjoy it. I’m a big fan of brown rice California rolls.

Sarah and I had such a wonderful weekend together. She’s kind of my hero. Just saying. πŸ˜‰ She headed back to Boston then she was off to spend the day on the cape (Cape Cod.) I’m looking forward to seeing her again soon.
I made a wish, and I’m confident that it will come true. =)
More friends…I’m so glad that everyone came.
My workout buddy and friend, Carol.
And here’s one more picture of the cake. The top layer was white with butter cream, and the bottom layer was chocolate fudge with homemade cookies infused..It was delicious.


There are so many fun photos, but I had to put up a few of my favorites! πŸ™‚ I posted pictures of those who don’t mind being a part of my blog, but I feel so fortunate to have everyone in my life – even those who prefer not to be on the web. Ha..:)

I think that the upcoming year will be a tremendous one. I’m so lucky to have loving, caring and supportive people around me everyday. And now it’s time to look ahead to all of the good times that are coming. Bring it on 30! I’m ready. =)

    You are so lucky to be licking this weight thing in your 30's. I tried, but gained it back. They say it's more difficult the older you get, and at 42, I am finding that to be true – at least these last 20 pounds.

    Stay true to it Kenz and you've got so much to look forward to.

    Happy Birthday! (that's some cake:)

    Wow, what fun! That looks like a party that could have lasted for several days. Awesome food, and quite the cookie-infused cake (LOL at that).

    Best of all, the shining faces of you and your fabulous friends! You really rocked the dress, too!

    You're going to have a great decade!

    I got the dress at Lane Bryant, and I have to say I loved wearing it. It was the first time I've been able to rock a strapless bar in a long, long time. πŸ™‚ I was feeling pretty awesome. πŸ™‚
