HAPPY BIRTHDAY WEEKEND! AND LUPUS WALK 2012
This past weekend was a very interesting and emotional one. My sister and I celebrated our birthday on Saturday May the 19th. My sister’s fiancé celebrates his birthday the very next day on May 20th so this year we combined our birthdays and made a weekend of it. We started in NYC with Lupus Walk 2012 in the morning to honor the memory of my mother. When we returned to my family’s house, my uncle had a cake waiting for us and everyone sang happy birthday. We then headed up to Bridgeport, CT where my sister’s fiancés parents were having a church fundraiser night. They had a wonderful cake for us and had the entire hall sing for us, and then disco dance.
We ended our eventful evening at Stratfords Stationhouse Wine Bar & Grille to hear my cousin-in law, Chris Lynn and his spectacular one-man band. He’s hilarious and an awesome entertainer. He Had everyone sing us happy birthday and had the most hilarious song for all of us. I laughed. I cried. I sang Jimmy Buffet’s “If You Like Pina Coladas!” And I crashed out.
Best Birthday Ever! Until the next one rolls around.
