Yes, on March 2nd, I officially left the 50's behind and entered the new world of the 60's!!
How does it feel? Not any different than 59, and to be perfectly honest, I feel the best I have in a very long time!! After all, 60 is really JUST a number, right??
I also share that special day with Dr. Seuss, the author of so many wonderful books that I grew up with, as I'm sure many of you did, too!! Who doesn't love The Cat in the Hat, or Horton Hears a Who? Or how about Green Eggs and Ham?
Speaking of that particular book, in honor of my special day, my hubby Jeff decided to surprise me with a very special breakfast and I told him this was my version of Green Eggs and Ham!!
Scrambled Eggs and Donuts!!! It was THE PERFECT WAY TO CELEBRATE, plus, it made me SMILE!!! I'll just bet it is having the same affect on YOU!!!!
We decided to go to our favorite getaway spot here in Arizona and spent several days in Prescott, about 1 1/2 hours north of us! It is a fun town with lots of antique shops and other fun spots!!
We found out that the temps had dropped and there would actually be some snow there, which we just don't see here!!! I know many of you reading this have seen more snow than you care to, but it was a nice change for us and didn't last very long!! Just the way I like it!!!
Our first stop was MOB Burgers and it is set up as an old diner style with an ice cream/ gelato counter! All the burgers are named after famous gangsters and we chose the Bugsy Burger!
Swiss cheese, and grilled onions and mushrooms!!!
It was so yummy and the first burger I have had in quite a while!!! The hand cut fries tasted like the ones you get at the shore, too!! This was a split and Jeff had the other half!!!
Now it was time to do some shopping!!
One of my favorite shops is Keystone Antiques because they actually DO have antiques and this is my favorite room!
I just loved the table and wanted to take it home with me,
as well as the chairs and everything else sitting on it!!!
So many wonderful pieces!!!
Do you see anything you might like?
Beautiful chaos of old linens!!!
I did come home with a few little treasures but forgot to take pictures of them and will have to share them another time!! It was a fun visit and the snow was pretty much in the mountains and didn't really cause us any problems!!! I'm sure we will go back for another sometime soon!!
We have a local restaurant here in Peoria that we discovered and they send you special coupons for your Birthday so of course we went there for our dinner!!
It is called Firebirds Wood Fired Grill and has THE BEST FOOD!!!
Amazing Spinach Salad!
Sesame Crusted Salmon with mashed parmesan garlic potatoes and fried spinach!! If you have never had it, it is just FANTATIC!!
My cake of choice was their Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting!!! I can't even begin to describe how good it is!!!!!
My daughter and her hubby Austin met us for another Birthday dinner on Sunday at another favorite place we found called Oreganos, and they have the most wonderful pizza and salads!!!
We had Oreganos favorite salad and a small pizza and for some reason I could not find a picture of either of them, but trust me, they were WONDERFUL!!!!
No Birthday would be complete without their special Pizza Cookie, and I know you can tell this was really wonderful, too!!! We enjoyed it, believe me!!!!
My son Jeffry sent me the most wonderful gift, too, and I wanted to share it with you!!
He had this specially made for me and even included Charlotte, our grand dog!!!
Something I will always treasure!!!
All in all, it really was not painful to reach the Big 6-0, and I am looking forward to what this next season of my life holds!!!
Thank you for sharing this journey with me, my friends!!
