Celebrated forty-seventh birthday by cooking dinner for seven at home. Menu included beef tenderloin, Copper River salmon, hericots verts, roasted garlic potatoes, spinach salad. Small perfect birthday cake, vanilla ice cream and great wine included.
At this age I have learned that if you want good things you have to go out and make them happen. Kind of like this black dress- we all have black dresses in our closet but this one lets you cook and feel like a party guest at the same time. So, given my somewhat hectic days I ordered it back in May for a July delivery. Totally worth the wait as it made me feel great and comfortable while cooking dinner and taking care of my guests. Flat sandals make it super easy. Side zipper goes goes all the way up to under the arm. Fun. Mom commented that it reminded her of the Halston Jumpsuits she used to wear.
Thoughts for the day? Cook dinner on your birthday at home and treat the important people in your life. It all comes back to you double. Wear a great dress. Make good things happen.
Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes. Had a great day.
In photos I am wearing Worth New York’s Black Sleek to the Ankle Jersey Dress from Summer 2012. Has a bit of stretch and the side ruching helps define the waistline. If you like your lululemon gear, this would be a great addition to your wardrobe as it is so super easy to move in and can be dressed up or down.
