A ——decade birthday…………

Ummmmm, shall I just say it is one of those numbers I didn’t think would ever be  attached to me!!!! Anyhow, The day dawned bright and sunny, with a wonderful card from DH. Then we took off on 2 wheels for South Padre Island via some (very straight, but beautiful) back roads. We decided to grab an early lunch at our fave, “Dirty Al’s”. I had my usual Mexican soda…..IMG_5562 to accompany my blackened shrimp tacos…………IMG_5565



I know……I have this every time! But it’s the best!!

Next, we were off to my fave little thrift shop, run by the local Humane Society………..IMG_5567 

Picked up some beachy decorator pillows “for a song”!!!!!

The day was moving along way too quickly!!! Back across the water to a wonderful place called the Causeway Café in Port Isabel for a “Chocolate Decadence Frappe”………….IMG_5569IMG_5568 IMG_5570

Riding back was pure joy……especially knowing that the water in the pool at the resort would be so-o-o-o ready for us!!!! And, so I close out this special, many-decade year observance. I leave you with some very warm thoughts……and photos…..IMG_5572

    Happy Birthday Doreen. You are one year ahead of me for this magical number. Who cares it is only a number you don’t have to live by it. You know what they say don’t act your age act your shoe size. Glad you had such a happy day.
