Martha ain’t got nothin on me

I don’t really read Martha Stewart’s blog. 

Her personal life, I could do without.  But when I saw this as her post for the other day, I had to check it out.

1. Because I wondered when her birthday actually is. It is August 3rd.

2.  Because mine is August 29th and the last thing I want is to share a birthday with Martha.  DeAnn I am fine with :) Just not Martha. 

If you click on the link you can see the pictures and the rest of the famous guests too!( I don’t even know who half of them are!)

My Joint Birthday Party With Harry Slatkin

A few weeks ago, I went out to dinner with my good friends, Harry Slatkin, the fragrance tycoon, and his wife, Laura.  We chose a new restaurant in Montauk, the far-east end of the South Fork of Long Island.  Its name is Navy Beach, a beachfront restaurant and bar serving casual coastal cuisine in a laid back, family-friendly setting.  While dining, we looked around and said, “Wouldn’t this be a great place to have a birthday?”  And so we started planning.  Harry and I never celebrated our birthdays together before, but it seemed like a fun thing to do.  Dinner consisted of everyone’s favorite comfort food, including iceberg wedges, butter poached lobster rolls, buttermilk fried chicken, truffled macaroni and cheese, seafood and chips, parmesan French fries and a several-layer chocolate cake.  Harry!  What do you think?  Should we try it again, next year?

So let me take this opportunity to compare this with my birthday.  Which is actually the point of this post. 

1.  Since it was on a Sunday, I went to church and it was a communion Sunday for us. Nothing like starting off your birthday will all the saints.

2.  My children gave me hand made cards. And I know my husband purchased a card for me BEFORE the actual day :)

3.  I got a box from my sisters with the most thoughtful contents. 

4. I got a box from my parents with the most thoughtful contents.

5. I got tons of FB Happy Birthday wishes, lots of texts and phone calls.

6. We went to my in-laws house for a wonderful supper. 

7.  I got to eat some fabulous chocolate pasta and enjoy it with some great company.  100_1498

  I got to celebrate my day with the most important things to me.  Church, family, friends and food.  It really doesn’t get any better than that. No matter how old you are.

Thanks everyone!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

I like yours better! Far more real, not at all pretentious.

Many happy returns. Mine was August 11 and I was on holiday with my family where I got handmade cards, a handmade shell necklace from our beach collection and a lovely foot massage.

Martha's got nothing on us girl!

That pasta is what makes me want a pasta maker. Who made it? It looks great. I wish I could have spent your birthday with you. Next year. Love you!!
