My fabulous friends!

More family and friends!

And I got a special phone call from one of my favorite cousins opening up 2 restaurants in Nigeria, Africa! I love you!!
Did my Husband and My Mama outdo themselves yesterday...
I THOUGHT I was going out for a day of shopping in a limo with my Mama.
Well, I got into the limo, but we ended up at a fabulous hall in Fontana, my old Lodge the Sons Of Italy, and we were going to "pick my Mama up". Well, she needed "help" and I, like a lamb to slaughter, took the bait and ended up walking into a hall of 120 of my closest friends and relatives yelling SURPRISE!
Truly a day I will never, ever forget! To have that many people
I love under the same roof was truly mind blowing!
I recieved such lovely presents... but most of all, I got their presence!
I was sooooooo touched they all took time out of their busy lives for me!
My Mama made all the food. THERE WAS A TON OF FOOD! TONS!!!
11 hors' de ourves
6 main dishes
and 6 different desserts!
Bill totally got me! He has made up for the last 16 years of not "getting" how much I love my Birthday, and he went above and beyond. I just wanted him to call me in the morning and not forget... and he throws this huge party, just for me!
The party was over at 4 officially, but we stayed and partied until 7. I hadn't seen so many of my cousins in a while, and we just didn't want to let go!
So a huge thank you to my hubby and my Mama for doing so much more than you needed to!
I love you both so very much!
I'll post more pictures in the days to come.
