Miraculous Lunch with the Lunch Lady

I should have titled this entry
"Miracles do Happen" or perhaps "Birthday Blessings",

But I prefer Lunch Lady, because in my mind that is what stood out about this day
One of my girlfriends is always good at getting us to laugh.
She is just plain silly and we get to giggling.

She is the lunch lady
Here she is showing us her lunch lady picture that will go in the year book.
Seriously I don't know why it cracks me up--
maybe it is her lunch lady dance.
A few weeks before my birthday I was strongly urged (by the lunch lady) or maybe it was a polite requested that I should pick "Crackers" restaurant for my birthday...don't get me wrong I really like/love this restaurant so it wasn't much of a sacrifice--especially when they told me why they wanted to go there--
Pumpkin Bread Pudding.
Mind you this is a seasonal item--new to our taste buds and i am here to say
It did NOT disappoint

This place is also known for their blackberry bread pudding year around

...soooo DELISH

Just thinking about it is making me salivate.

Now the reason this entry is entitled "Miraculous".
There are a total of six of us.

We have been friends for a mighty long time and have shared MANY birthday lunches together. It was far easier when our kids were little to get together, but as they have gotten older our lives and schedules have become just a tad complicated to say the least. Often we bounce around a dozen e-mails or so before we come to a consensus as to a time and date. Now enter in my birthday. It only further complicates because it falls right around Thanksgiving--not exactly a calm and UN-busy time of year. To add to the chaos this year one friend had a child getting married right after Thanksgiving. I thought for sure that i would have to forgo the birthday lunch.
You can imagine all of our surprise when a date was thrown out for the upcoming weekend and
EVERYONE could make it.?
We were amazed.
In awe.
We all decided we are much better planning on the cuff than too far in the future.

It was a great day with my friends.
You can guess what my birthday wish was ....
Well maybe you can't, and i am not really supposed to say...
but i will give you a hint...
It involves many more good times with all these girls
and laughing with the lunch lady.
Thank goodness for birthdays to bring us all together

The lunch lady isn't the only member of this group that makes me laugh. You make me laugh too! Let's go eat some blackberry bread pudding together soon. I'll just show up on your doorstep soon.
