It was a very fun evening I had few weeks ago. My best friend NJ and I had a double birthday celebration at her house in Forth Worth. I am still cannot find the words how enchanted I was of how beautifully the party was planned and put together very successfully. We both had not idea how the party would be like because there was no tiny hint. Not one little bit. Our dear friends were very good in hiding clues. Would you believe that they did a Casino Themed Birthday Party? NJ and I like going to the casinos. 😀 We don’t do it very often but we enjoy going.

Anyway, it’s my 40th birthday and I can say that this was it was a big celebration to date. NJ is in her late 20s already. The last time we celebrated our birthday together was in 2009 when we were neighbors in Fort Worth. We went Downtown and had fun at the disco and karaoke at City Streets (now closed). Those were good times, I tell ya.
Lots of food. Yum.
The party that night was a blast. The decorations were amazing and the food was abundant. Thanks to the guests who brought delicious American and Filipino foods. In addition, NJ’s hubby and friends had set up a red carpet and casino. NJ and I had a wonderful night on our birthday party. They were very thoughtful with donating to my feeding program next month. NJ, her sister, my daughter, and I are flying together to the Philippines for a vacation this month. And one of the things in my agenda was having a small Thanksgiving feast for the children in my neighborhood. I am excited about it. It won’t be long and we will be in the Philippines.

My best friend NJ and me. I love you dear.
There’s a lot of stuff went on at the party that evening – karaoke, disco, and games. Oh how fun. Thanks to our wonderful friends who made our birthday party celebration very successful and amazing.
It’s the month of June, everyone! That means summer is just around the corner. I hope the weather is wonderful in your areas. It has been raining like crazy here in Texas. Some lakes and rivers are overflowing. The one behind our neighborhood is super full that the water is almost on the road. Thankfully it didn’t. It’s supposed to be clear and sunny all week this week. 🙂

Are you and your family excited for the summer vacation? We are. I cannot wait to go on a summer getaway with my family. I hope DD won’t get sick these days because there are so many kids’ activities during summer and party invitations too.
DD was invited to a couple of birthday parties. One was last Saturday and the other one was yesterday. She wasn’t able to go last Saturday because she was not feeling completely well. She caught a cold and ran a fever Friday evening. Her body temperature was 101.3 F and I was very worried. The next day, which is Saturday, she is still feeling weak. So we declined the birthday invitation and I let DD rest a lot on that day.
Then yesterday, Sunday, she said she wanted to go to Avi’s birthday party. So we went and joined Avi’s 8th birthday party held at one of my girl friends’ home. The weather was wonderful. The kids spent most of the afternoon playing in the backyard. Everybody had a great time at the party especially when it was cake time.
They found the swimming pool noodles and played sword fight. 🙂

And you know what, behind the fun and happiness of this party is also a little sadness. Why? Because Avi and her family is moving. They will be moving to Tennessee next week. We will surely miss them.
Your sister is the first female friend you will have in your life. Nobody will ever be able to understand your craziness like your sister. And although you don’t see each other as much as you would like, she will always remain your friend and be there for you whenever you need her the most. While people will come and go in your life, your sister will be in your heart for a lifetime.
I found this quote from someone on Facebook. I shared it on my profile and sharing it here as well. Yes, our sisters are our best friends. So love your sisters like you love your parents.
I miss my siblings, I love them so much.
