Three for Me

It's been awhile since I've posted a Three for Me piece, so here it goes.....

1. Sydney's Birthday - This was, of course the top of the list for my three favorite things this week. My little girl is now nine! It's her "last year in the single digits" as she put it. We spent her birthday at my parent's house in central Jersey and had a very delicious and fattening cake. Unfortunately, as a summer baby, she doesn't get that many parties, but I think this year we will try and do something special once school starts and all her friends are home. Happy Birthday Sweetie! We love you.

Happy Birthday to you....Happy Birthday to you....

2. My sister Jen - Now, my sis and I are about five years apart and we are very close. For awhile, she lived in the same town as me, but due to my brother-in-laws job, they relocated to Pennsylvania. I really miss having her near by...... Jen has always been there for me, no matter what. We laugh, goof off and try to hang out as much as possible. She and I may disagree, argue and get mad at each other (what siblings don't?), but I know that no matter what I do or say......she loves me and will always be there to support me and I feel the same towards her. By the way, Jen recently celebrated another birthday's another shout-out to her: Happy Birthday Jen!!!!!

Took this at a Musikfest concert in between sets...we had a blast!

3. Aw-Shucks Roasted Corn - yes, I'm serious. This corn is on my favorite things this week. Why? Why?!!! The only thing I can say is join me at Musikfest next year and I will show you why. Hands down.....this is the best corn ever!!! I'm still dreaming about this.....yummmmmm

I took this right before I devoured it - Can I have one more please?

What are your three favorite things this week?


  1. Happy last-year-in-single-digits, Sydney! Have fun :)

    And happy birthday to Jen as well!

    Oooh, roasted corn! Back in Mangalore, where I was born, there used to be loads of street-side vendors who'd roast corn and sprinkle a mixture of salt and chilly powder on it. Best snack EVER, especially during winter.

    Unfortunately, it seems people of Calicut are not big fans of it :(

    That last photo brought back so many memories... feel like going to M'lore now *sad sigh*

    1. Thanks! Hope you get some roasted corn soon! :)

  2. Happy birthday to both of them :)

  3. Happy birthday to your "little" girl. Why doesn't she have a huge garden birthday party every year? Lily is upset that she can't have a garden party for HER birthday (early February).

    Love the picture of you and your sister. I'm glad you're so close to her!
