The Big 5-0

Oh, no - It's the Big 5-0!!!!
What a great birthday.  Lasted over a week!  My bunco group had an Irish themed gathering for me.  Here's me with the delish Bailey's Irish Creme cake that my friend, Mary, made:

The party was at Mary's house.  The group gathered their St. Patrick's day decorations and chipped in to help decorate.

My friend, MaryEllen, made this fun poster.

More decorations.

The lovely table that Mary set.

More decorations.

And here's some of the group, chatting as we do.  MaryEllen recited a list throughout the night of Irish sayings and toasts.

More decorations.

Here's the cake that Mary made.  Yum!

And my friend, Cindy, made this beautiful card for me, signed by the group.

They presented me with beautiful gifts.  This table book of Ireland. . . 

And this cookbook. . .

This is a pay-it-forward gift from MaryEllen.  I know who's getting this next!

And this beautiful Swarovski shamrock.  Just lovely.  Very thoughtful.

That night was so wonderful.  But it wasn't over yet!  More to come . . .
