I am now officially 57 years "young"
sounds much better than saying 57 years "old."
The vintage rhinestone necklace I ordered from Ruby Lane Antiques arrived
I wore it out to dinner...
Sparkles + Twinkles = Bling.
To start the weekend celebrations we dined out Friday at a fabulous French Bistro.
The memory of that tasty meal is still ever so clear in my mind....
French 75 for the Hostess and a martini for Mr. HB...
we started with French Onion Soup,
followed by steak, mushrooms and pommes frites for the main course,
Creme Brulee with two spoons for dessert.
Coffee for Mr. HB and I sipped wine and water as I planned to enjoy a sleep in and caffeine affects my slumber.
French Red Wine
Sterling our waiter,
recommended a Cotes du Rhone variety.

I snapped this image on my IPhone as we waited for the cab to arrive.

I sent her a copy
I sent her the Pho Fuchsia eatery from Seattle a few years ago
and she posted the image on her sidebar.
If you've never been a visitor to her blog you'll be impressed...
she's a busy mom and a lawyer with incredible taste in home decor, food and fashion.
When we got home Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band were on Jimmy Fallon,
we watched our Boss work his magic. We are huge fans!
Saturday lunch with Mother...
I'd dare not show up wearing too much Bling...
I dressed sedately in a black knit skirt, boots, a cashmere sweater, Hermes scarf.
No reason to alarm her at her age.
Saturday evening and it's dinner with friends...
I wore the sparkly choker with
Gap wide legged jeans, black tank top, black long knit sweater and kitten heels.
Janet author of The Gardener's Cottage would have been glued to the TV as Jack White was on SNL.
How was it Janet?
We taped it and will watch it sometime this week.
If you haven't met Janet yet pop by for a visit and say Hi for me.
She embraces frugality and minimalism, gardens, practices Yoga and she's a drop dead gorgeous esthetician who looks far too young to be a grandmother!
Mr. HB designed the paper that he wrapped my gift in...
he's so clever!
Lovely delicate orchid blooms.
I am going to put my feet up and relax
with In Style and a cup of tea...
It's been a busy weekend
filled with wonderful birthday celebrations
a I feel so Happy.
How are things going with you?
Tell me everything...
