Birthday Shenanigan’s Wrap Up!

Started off with some shopping

Week 1: Tried some new local restaurants

Dinner, pool & cocktails

Actual B-day Week 2: Bowling with my babies, friends & met my new grandson!

Week 3: Ladies Night

Week 3: I’ll spare y’all the photos, lol

Week 4: Alive after 5 Cruise with the ladies around American River!

Turning 50 has been a blessing and I am truly humble in looking back at all I’ve overcome to where I am now. I didn’t have anything planned for my birthday this year and my children surprised me with a party at the bowling alley, a place that holds a lot of great childhood memories when my parents bowled on a league there. Because I had been so focused during the pandemic with figuring out how I would earn a living since being denied three times for Social Security; even though I earned more than my share of credits years ago to qualify, I hadn’t ventured out much or had any real fun. So, I wanted to do something, anything, every weekend the month of September to celebrate my day and relax my mind off all the information I’ve learned since the start of the pandemic. Things just kind of happened, one invite after another led to a full month of fun and shenanigans. My first time on a yacht and I was a bit nervous being on the top level whenever it would sway, or someone would stand too close to the edge trying to snap photos. It turned out to be a fabulous experience. The DJ was amazing with all the old school jams and interacting with the ladies, I am so thankful! I tried to upload videos for you all to view the scenery and see me on the dance floor again, but for some reason we couldn’t get them to upload. Thank you all for the previous birthday wishes, I’m optimistic about the future and reaching beyond the stars. Until next week, take care & God Bless you all!

    1. Thank you so much & no worries, it only posted once. I have the same issue when I try to comment from my phone. So unfortunately unless I’m at my computer, it’s rare that I am able to leave a comment or not duplicate it.
      Enjoy your weekโฃ๏ธ
