You're Invited!

Today is my birthday and I'm going to pretend on my blog that I live in the South American country where my sister is a missionary. Down there, the tradition is that on your birthday you do your own party! You fix dinner for all your friends - it's a way of celebrating the friendships on your birthday. And it definitely takes the pressure off of wondering if anyone will remember!

So you are all invited to enjoy with me. . .

no skimping on the whipped cream today!

And some. . .


which of course means we need some. . .


and I guess we better toss in some fruit to balance it out. . .



And all of this is virtually calorie-free!

(Couldn't resist the cyber-pun)

Thanks for being my bloggy friends. Today I celebrate YOU!!

Hey Linda, it's my birthday today too! I didn't know we shared a birthday. Come to my blog and you can see what I made instead of a birthday cake!

Hope you've had a perfectly wonderful birthday like I have!!!
