Grandma Turns 70!

Today is my Grandma’s actual birthday so I’d like to start off today by saying HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the prettiest 70-year-old I know!

Since we live a couple of states away we decided to celebrate over the weekend with the fam.

We posted some picture of the birthday girl in her early 20’s while we made dinner and admired her lovely smile and fun personality that she still has to this day.

For dinner we made Chicken Cacciatore in the Crock Pot, served it over linguine with garlic bread and caesar salad on the side.

Some of the crew enjoying dinner.

After dinner we sat my Grandma down to open some special gifts.

A basket full of spa products to guess where she’s going…

Almost got it… Enjoying a weekend getaway with the girls at Hershey Spa with chocolate facials and massages.

Her last gift. About a month ago I hacked into my Grandma’s email account and sent emails to her friends/family asking for their favorite memory involving her. I was aiming for 70 responses but ended up with 76! She’s so popular 🙂

027

She was ecstatic when she opened the box to see how many people she has touched throughout the years.

028

We had her read a couple memories out-loud and told her to take her time and enjoy reading the rest without an audience.

We made two desserts – Frozen Reese’s Pie

and Chocolate Poke Cake. Make both, you won’t regret it.

We left feeling full and happy knowing that my Grandma had such a great time.

Here’s to 70 more 🙂
