The month of September will surely go so fast for me. I've been busy at work and every weekend, and the remaining weekends are already booked. It started when one of my friends invited me to a supposed-to-be small birthday party for a few friends at the Blueberry Farm. This friend asked me to bring Pichi-Pichi and Kutsinta (these are Philippine delicacies) It was my first time to make them and I was glad they turned out good. (Pictured below)
However, when we got there, I was surprised when I saw all the preparations and the amount of food on the table including a lechon (pig roast). Pictured below is my friend trying to carve the roasted pig.
People started arriving and having fun. Here's a friend who loves to sing with the karaoke while the rest are dancing. Would you believe that the lady in a light brown top is in her 80's? She loves life ... and she loves to dance!
A few friends enjoying dancing with their spouses.
Picture of just a few who attended the party.
And this was my surprise ... my name was on the birthday cake along with the September birthday celebrants! My friends wanted to surprise me so mum was the word!
After all those delicious food, we went and picked blueberries just to burn some calories! lol
The following weekend, another friend invited me to her house to celebrate (again) my and a friend's birthday and a wedding anniversary of another friend. Needless to say, I need a lot of exercise to get rid of all these calories! There were just four of us but look at all these yummy desserts! I felt bad because I didn't take a picture of the meals. My friend prepared a feast fit for a queen! So for this Thankful Thursday that Rhondi of Rose Colored Glasses is hosting, I am very thankful for friends. What's a girl to do without them!
