Karen and Jean's Birthday CelebrationMEMBER SPOTLIGHT AND BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS

Toeing around on Sunset BeachFire Boat water showWhat a special way to celebrate a birthday ...  With someone who started out as a client over three years ago, who has become my dear friend and also shares the same birthday! 

 

Jean and I  have been celebrating our birthday with Frank and Steve since we met them at the Wilmington Airport on Saturday.




We started by going to lunch at Elijah's, a famous restaurant on the Cape Fear River. We were lucky to see the Riverboat go by all decorated for the Holidays.  We were treated to a display from the Cape Fear Fire Boat (we think the boat was showing off for us)

 

The birthday celebration continued as we enjoyed an evening of wine tasting at our favorite local coffee and wine shop, Mavericks Java and Wine Shop.  We ended the evening with homemade pizza created by Chef Baker, extraordinaire .... Nothing nicer than ending the evening with good wine and good friends. 

 

Sunday was gorgeous weather and we managed to spend some time on the beach, relaxing while reading our Nooks.  

 

 

Frank decided since we weren't home for Thanksgiving he would have a Thanksgiving meal for our birthday's. How sweet is that! We also enjoyed watching the Giants beat the Saints!

 

GO GIANTS

 

Today was special because Jean and I went out for lunch together for our birthday and browsed the local boutiques after lunch. Quality girlfriend time is a must. 

 

Our day ended with our husband's taking us out to dinner in Myrtle Beach to Greg Norman's Australian Grille for a superb meal.

 

We all turned our phones off during dinner and enjoyed the evening.  (YIPEE)

I realized after returning home that both Frank and I had missed an important phone call from one of our Active Rain friends, Margaret Rome, who was wondering if we knew we were in the Member Spotlight or maybe we were still partying and hanging out with clients writing more contracts.  

 

Thanks Active Rain for the Spotlight today, and Frank was busy taking care of Karen (as usual)

I am so glad you got my message.

Sounds like a wonderful way to spend mutual birthdays. Good friends, shopping, good food, husbands cooking, relaxing on the beach, having a river boat show off just for you, being the spotlight member and last but not least....turning your phones off and really enjoying each other!

Happy Birthday and many more!
Margaret
