Birthday Weekend

Well my birthday got off to a great start. I went off the the gym and was told about the new restaurant Mario Batali, Food Network Star, opened in Port Chester, New York. We are going there for dinner tomorrow night. The name of the restaurant is Tarry Lodge. Will let you know how it was. Everyone was raving about the food. When I got home, I found a beautiful bouquet of flowers and the confirmation receipt that my IPad was ordered from my husband. I also found a beautiful message from Denise, my stitching sister, on my phone . Tomorrow Denise is taking me out for lunch to one of my favorite places, The Cheesecake Factory. Tomorrow is going to be a day of feasting between lunch and dinner.
I saw Jen and Jake in the afternoon and Jake gave me the best present of all. A big hug and kiss plus the cutest picture of him. I had to post his picture for you all to see. Just love the drool.
I had ordered some needlepoint accessories from Amy's and they arrived today. It was just like opening a birthday present. How I love getting things in the mail. I ordered a light magnifier that has a "C" clamp . It will clamp onto a table or your frame. I wanted something that would clamp onto the evertites and this is going to work perfectly. I have not taken it out of the box yet but plan on doing so tonight and will let you know how it works. The light magnifier is both battery operated and plug in. I am hoping that this will be a good thing to take away when I travel for hotel rooms and for classes.
Well off to enjoy my evening and looking forward to the celebration continuing all weekend.

Happy Birthday, Linda! Sounds like you have a wonderful weekend planned with lots of good food at the top of the list. I love Cheesecake Factory! There's so much to choose from and it's all good. I went there for one of the dinners over my recent birthday weekend. I indulged in the fried macaroni and cheese appetizer (I shared!) and it was heavenly. Let us know how you like the light you bought from Amy's. I'm in the market for something like that myself. Have fun!
