Friday night was chilly and we were headed out for dinner I stuck my hand in the pocket of my fall jacket and came up with 28.00 yahoo!

Saturday was our anniversary and husband left a rose for me on Friday before we went out so sweet.

When I asked Miss B who was in the picture she had no clue soooo I guess we didn't age that well.:)

Saturday out for a muffin and coffee and to meet Susan Branch to have her sign her newest book for me. What a pleasure to meet her.
Then off we go to Pick up Miss B for an over night! We pull in the drive way and lots and lots of cars and we see this!

My daughter lied! She gave us the nicest surprise party. I am not big on surprises and I don't like to be the center of attention. 

But she did such a great job with only the closest friends and family. She and her husband worked really hard on this and it was just perfect. My sweet daughter continues to over whelm me with her kindness she is such an amazing person. And my sweet son in law worked very hard on this for us we are very blessed.

Sunday ,warm, and wonderful time to clean out the gardens so I am good and tired and sore. A hot shower and feet up and I am thinking about a tea. 
The colors are starting to show hopefully I will get some great pictures this week. 
Have a great week everyone!

That's so sweet. You look good, then and now. If it was me, I probably would have arrived to pick up Miss B in old sweats and died of embarrassment:).
A friend of mine just posted on Facebook that they had a surprise 80th birthday party for her grandmother. The surprise was that grandma went out for the day and missed her own surprise party. Lol

How wonderful that you have celebrated that 40th anniversary! It was thoughtful of your daughter to plan a celebration, though you might have preferred her not to do that. Miss B is learning about secrets at an early age.:-)

I'm more than just a bit envious that you have been able to go to a Susan Branch book signing! That is my dream, and I'm sure it will not ever happen here. Once her latest book arrived here and I started reading it, I had great difficulty putting it down! Now I need to reread it because it is really too long until the next one comes!:-)

Have a great week!

That is so sweet!! Happy Anniversary! I always love that surprise of finding money when I first put my coats on again.
I would love to go see Susan Branch and have her sign a book. That is wonderful.
I hope you have a lovely week.

Happy Anniversary! Love the photo, looks about the same era that we got married from the outfits;)
Sounds like you had a special weekend with your family. I will have to see where the best foliage is for next weekend, time for a day trip.

Happy 40th! That certainly needs to be recognized and celebrated...Congrats! You are blessed with a lovely and thoughtful family. Your wedding pic looks familiar...probably because we were married a year earlier and all the men's tuxes looked like that! Our dresses were much more modest than those of today! Glad you had a nice party and I'm also enjoying this beautiful Fall weather and colors that are just starting to burst forth! Oh, and how fun to meet Susan Branch!
