Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Archive for the ‘Birthday’ Category

Hello Friends, I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Today for my son’s 21st birthday all he wanted was money and to go bowling, oh and he also mentioned something about a beer.  Well he got the money, but not the beer…with his father being a Muslim he knew that wasn’t happening.  We did however, go to Mid County Lanes in Middletown and had a great time…at least I did.

Now that my sons are getting older I am beginning to really miss the days when we had family fun time, so today was also a gift to me, a gift for my “giving birth day”!

HAPPY 21st BIRTHDAY TAYAIR ISHMAEL BLAKE !

Hello Friends and Happy Monday!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend, the weather was simply gorgeous in Delaware despite a few intermittent rain drops.  Saturday I spent most of the morning in my son’s closet gathering clothes to be donated to the Cancer Federation. He doesn’t outgrow his clothes as quickly as his younger brother, but I was able to find enough to fill two large bags.

60th Birthday Bash 062

Saturday evening hubby and I attended a celebration in honor of his friend’s 60th birthday. Hollywood is a long time friend and is the lead singer of Hollywood And The Final Kutt Band.  They have played all over Delaware and can be seen next at the World Cafe Live in Wilmington on September 5th.

He and his wife live in a lovely row home in Wilmington where they have created a mini outdoor sanctuary filled with plants, a fish pond, cats, dogs and birds.

Today 5  7 is my husband’s 57th birthday!

What did I get him?

NOTHING

Why?

Because for the past 25 years nothing that I’ve ever given him was good enough!

I am a CHEAP frugal shopper so he’s never used a single item that I’ve given him including gift certificates/cards.

Actually seven years ago I started giving him single dollar bills, and no not for what you’re thinking!  I would give him a dollar for each year starting with a pack of 50.  Most times he’d spend it on the boys, but this year he’s not even getting that because we just spent a bunch of money to replace the engine in Tayair’s old car to give to Malik.  Of course we had to assign the car to him and because he had an accident last month it’s costing us an additional $350 month, therefore, no one gets any birthday money this or next year!

Happy Birthday Hubby!

Have a fantabulous evening – Smooches!
