Happy Pink Sat. Anniversary &Texas Trip

Before anything else, I would like to congratulate Beverly on her third anniversary of Pink Saturday. Thank you so much for hosting this fun meme, Beverly. Send your wishes at

To celebrate, I am having my favorite cookies. They are Cheryl's cookies and I get an automatic shipment 4 times a year. Mmmmm, yummy!

About a month ago, I accompanied my friend Debjani, to drive to Katy, TX. Her parents live there and she had a medical appt. It is about a 6 hr. drive from here.

Traffic is one thing I don't miss in the city. I am glad I live in a trafficless area.

We stayed at her parent's house. And of course, I had to drag my mom along.

There's Debjani's mom and the nurse who takes care of her dad.

We ate at a Mexican Restaurant.

I had 2 kinds of chilis on my enchilada, green and red, and both were really good.

I was so surprised when the Mexicans came to sing "Happy Birthday" to me.

They even gave us sombreros to wear.

While Debjani was at her appointment, I went to Home Goods and went shopping. And boy oh boy! Did I go shopping! I filled Debjani's SUV trunk with stuff, lol.

We also bought crab and lots of seafood.

I bought shrimp, red snapper, red fish, bass and tuna steaks, in addition to the crab. Can you tell that we eat a lot of seafood?

Before finally driving home, we stopped by Todai to eat lunch. I couldn't believe Debjani has never been there as much as she loves Japanese food. I love sushi, do you?

Look! I am even wearing pink!

I had to get back a day before John and my birthday. I did not want him to spend his birthday by himself. Yep, we were born on the same day, 3 years apart. It was a short trip that we did not even have time to go sightseeing, but we had a lot of fun.
I was also glad to meet Debjani's parents for the first time and see his brother again.

Thanks for stopping by, y'all! And Happy Anniversary to Beverly's Pink Saturday again. Thanks for being such a gracious hostess! More power to the coming years!

Looks and sounds like a fun trip. The enchiladas look good. Not a fan of sushi especially if has any raw fish/seafood in it. Speaking of food - I need to decide what is for dinner. :D
Have a fun and safe weekend.

Sounds like a really nice trip. How nice of you to go with her. I am sure it paid off for you with all that you bought. Your meal looks so good. I have never had sushi!

Your mom has the strangest expression on her fac while those guys were singing Happy Birthday....was she annoyed? And I hope everything went well for Debjani? Vanna

I forgot to mention the cookies. I just love them. I sent some to my MIL for Mother's Day and she loved them!

It looks like y'all had a lot of fun! That Mexican restaurant is so cute. We eat tons of seafood! My father in law puts out traps for crawfish & crabs & both of our dads fish a lot. It's nice to only have to pay for shrimp!! I'm not a sushi eater at all.
