15/52: Birthday Celebrations

We kicked off my Birthday Month with a little celebration at my Mom and Kenny's on Saturday.

There is nothing quite like being spoiled by your mother...and she sure didn't disappoint! Lots of presents...a paperback, a yummy smelling travel candle, Jergens Natural Glow (a must for the week before vacation), clothes and.....(drum roll please), diamond earrings! Ta-Dah!  Spoiled Rotten!

After pre-dinner drinks and presents, we headed off for surprise birthday dinner (I had no idea where we were going) and we ended up down on the Seattle waterfront at the famous Crab Pot.  What a treat!  Thanks to Kenny for picking up the tab for dinner. Fabulous!

The Crab Pot is located right next to Seattle's Great Wheel.  Which is always lit up at night and incredibly beautiful (I promised Mom for her next birthday we would go for a ride).

Mom, Kenny and I split the "Westport" which included steamer clams, mussels, shrimp, andouille sausage, corn on the cob, red potatoes and dungeness and snow crab legs. Think New England clam bake - Seattle style.

After dinner was coffee and this crazy lemon-white chocolate-meringue cake.  OMG!!! 

What a fantastic way to kick off my Birthday month!
