Happy Birthday (a little late)

Just recently, our fearless leader Karen celebrated a wonderful birthday milestone (no need to mention which milestone, lol).  Her daughters got together and surprised her with Retro-Themed Roller Skating Birthday Party!  We had a blast and ACTUALLY managed to surprise her!

Her husband surprised her with some fun, romantic, reminiscence of the pasts gifts to commemorate her birthday!

Happy Birthday to my Dad!

My dad recently celebrated his birthday with us.  It was a great day with family and we were blessed with AH-MAZINGLY beautiful weather.  We all enjoyed so time outside, just playing and spending time together.  My wonderful hubby fired up the grill and we made our favorite burgers.

Our “Bacon-Cheddar Burgers” Receipe – It really isn’t a recipe, but here you go:

Who doesn’t like a bacon cheddar burger?  Well, we have put a little spin on the traditional one.  Just cook up your bacon – we like our bacon just a little crisp, but not too hard.  Once the bacon is cooked, just chop it up into small pieces.  Then take your cheddar cheese (or your favorite cheese) and shred it up – fresh shredded cheese tastes so much better than the pre-shredded kind.  Now, just take all your ingredients and mix them together (my hubby also likes to add a little brown sugar, along with pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder).  Just patty them up and throw them on the grill!  Let me know your favorite spin on a traditional burger!

And, what’s a birthday celebration without cake?  My dad requested a sugar-free blueberry cheesecake 🙂 (Isn’t the tablecloth adorable?  Get all your birthday decorations here!)
