A Birthday breakfast and SNOW

I would like to start this post with a huge
for all the comments and emails and phone calls, wishing
Mr. Sweet a HAPPY BIRTHDAY and a HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to both of us.
We both were more than thrilled to hear from all of you and to know
that you are wishing us well.

Hi, everyone.... 
"if you don't like our West Texas weather right now, stick around another hour and it will change." 

Last Sunday, our kids were swimming in their 
new, heated pool...

The temp that day was very close to 90 degrees...

.....this morning, Wed. 10th,

 ...we awoke to SNOW...

Very very wet snow....and not much of it,
but with the temps in the low 20's,
we were freezing.. are right....

we ARE sissies.

We are sorry for all the snow in Colorado...
"stay safe and warm, people."


We had a great

The most welcome MOISTURE from the snow made our
Celebration Breakfast just that much more blessed.

As nearly all my "pretties" are packed away, it took me a little bit to find something
PRETTY for our breakfast table.
AHHHH...the white LOVEBIRDS are always perfect..

....and how perfect for a 53rd Anniv. Breakfast
this pretty heart,
from my good friend, KATHY

It looked so pretty on the table, Kathy.:>)

 Do you think this centerpiece is good for a 53rd wedding anniversary breakfast..??

 Mr. Sweet wanted cheesy scrambled eggs with his hash brown patty and Apple Fritter Bread...
I didn't want an egg...but I sure wanted my  fruit salad...!!

Our sweet daughter and her family brought over the BEST
TACO SOUP and all the trimmings.....
and a CHOCOLATE CAKE to write home about.
I have some great photos .....see ya tomorrow.

Snow in Texas at this point in the game? Crazy, crazy weather... You sure know how to make the best of an unusual situation for breakfast looks fine and the table looks sweet. Keep right on celebrating...

I am so glad you guys had a wonderful celebration! Congratulations! I know what you mean. We are in Texas also and yesterday morning we woke up to 80 degrees, withing two hours we got a cold front and rain and the temperatures dropped down to 45. It caught me leaving the grocery store in my thin summer blouse and not even an umbrella. LOL Let me tell you, crazy weather.

Beverly said...

I can't think of a more deserving couple for Happy 53rd Anniversary wishes. I bet your hubby would be loving every day of joy shared with you.

Theresa said...

Beautiful centerpiece:) Happy that you both enjoyed your special day!

Your weather is really crazy down there! Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

Rian said...

Sounds like you had a wonderful birthday and anniversary. And your breakfast looks pretty good too!

As for the weather, I agree, it's strange to be in the 80's one day and almost freezing here (Dallas area) the next. I walked outside yesterday morning to go to class and had to go back in for a coat, scarf, and umbrella.

Patty Patterson said...

I'm glad you had a nice birthday! You definitely deserve one. And I hop the sun begins to shine and we get more of that swimming weather. I want to get my pool open - but we had sleet yesterday. Icy, cold sleet. I think we set a new record low. I hope my plants survive.

Happy belated birthday to Mr Sweets and Happy Anniversary! Sorry I missed it, I was out of town. Wow! SNOW! Stay warm.

The French Hutch said...

bj, you Texas girls do get a mixed bag when it comes to weather. Ours is a lot like this but rarely do we get snow, just cold. What a wonderful way to celebrate with the lovely breakfast. Happy Anniversary and best wishes to Mr. Sweet for a Happy Birthday week......

Happy Birthday and congratulations for that 53rd anniversary.You are a rare breed. You married once and worked through the difficulties. Now you are savoring the riches of a long and loving union.
Blessings for both of you. Ginger

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Happy Birthday and also Happy Anniversary! I aimed to comment yesterday, but I think that was about the time I got called away from the computer. I can see you all had a great time celebrating! That's wonderful!

Our weather in MO is a bit goofy right now, too. First it was very warm, then lots of rain, now it's too chilly. What's going on with Mother Nature? Enjoy your day!

Lynn said...

Snow in Texas in April... Things are crazy all over! Glad you had a nice anniversary:@)

Happy anniversary!

Your weather is crazy. We have snow tonight and tomorrow but we are used to it. I think we only hit the 90 degree mark a couple of times last year- xo Diana

Awww Happy 53rd Anniversary to you two lovebirds!!!!!!

middle child said...

Your centerpieces are perfect for any occasion!
Hm, 53 years. You have much to be proud of. That is alot of compromising. I was wondering if it is legal to count all 3 of my marriages together to perhaps reach a 50th?

Audrey said...

Beautiful centerpiece for your Anniversary breakfast. Congratulation and may you have many more. Strange weather for April ... but that little snow is great for the moisture that you need.
Blessing my friend.

Kathleen Grace said...

Awwww, you still have my heart:>) (So true in so many ways!)
I think the fabric I made that out of is my all time favorite, I am weariong an apron made out of it right now!
I am so glad you had such a wonderful Birthday/anniversary celebration! The table looks beautiful!

Miz Helen said...

Congratulations to you BJ and Mr. Sweets, my goodness 53 years is wonderful! Your breakfast looks so special and isn't just so Texas to be sun bathing one day and ice skating the next, you gotta love it!
Thank you very much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and have a great week!
Come Back Soon,
Miz Helen
