ladies who lunch - part 4

Dianne's picture of me with my Cake....It really made a big difference with Dianne taking pictures, too.......She could get shots of things--me---that I couldn't possibly have taken myself....That's Will next to me, for those who are unfamiliar. He makes 'the food' part of these Lunches happen, Thank You With All My Heart, Will...... And....'Sweet Lady Jane' makes this happen.....This is the very rich dark chocolate-with-a-little-bit-of-Cappuccino cake, that I love, love, love..... Dianne's picture of me, taking a picture of The love that she did this, don't you? And then.....she got a picture of me just as I was about to blow the candles out..... Well....not exactly. She told me to look! But, again, I love that Dianne documented some things on this special day, that I couldn't. And is Jacquie and her Birthday Cake..... I'm not sure---from this picture---that she actually expected that she would be getting her own special Birthday Cake.....But, of course, she would have her own Birthday Cake on the day we were celebrating her Birthday, as well as mine.....And below, Dianne's picture of Jacquie taken a moment later..... And there she is, very very Happy.....! And above, Jacquie is blowing out her candle....Because of the powdered sugar on the top of the Lemon Cake---Will holds the candle for her to blow out, otherwise, the powdered sugar gets all over the table---including getting on the flowers..... Above, a closer look at Jacquie's Cake.....This is one of the Great Great Cakes (That isn't chocolate, that of all time! So, I always have this cake along with the dark dense chocolate one....Everyone loves both these cakes so we will probably continue to have them at these Lunches...Though, you never know. I may try some new things next time, just for the hell of it......! We had our cake---each of us eating some of both....And, by the way, they taste wonderful together....what is that expression about 'riches'....not abundance, but.....well, I cannot think of it, but you get the picture. Having a piece of such very rich cakes on on one plate....Well, it was a lovely finish to a very wonderful meal......Then, we went back to 'playing' with our Gift Bag Stuff....... Lee loves to fool around like this and it's always fun...But then, she got her necklace around her neck and I took another picture of her looking like the Miss America she once was, and still is, actually. That is a rather small Sorority of Women and those that are still alive from earlier days, are all still very close. Lee and a number of other Miss America's go away together for a little vacation every other year....... You see that small tube right in front of Lee? Well, here is a closer look at it below...... It's over behind Betty's little Angel Bear....(We had a lot of fun with these 'poppers' which I will share with you in a minute.....) And I love that little Star Candle over there on the left....It is Battery operated and it came in Red, White...well, Silver really, and Blue..... All the Ladies just loved these these little Star Candles..... And as always....we had much to share with each other..... There's that popper just waiting for us to use them. Let's take a closer look at that "Patriotic Popper"......... Again, this was in Honor of the 4th of Juky......And now it was time to actually use them.....So, here below, is the Video of what happened........

Never losing a child-like wonder, is what keeps you young, I think, and it allows you to enjoy the little silly things in life and the wonder and joy of so many fun things, too!
And here below.....the way the table looked after we 'popped' those poppers, in one of the pictures I took of it.....We really enjoyed these Patriotic Poppers, and they capped off how much fun the whole afternoon was, as well.....Each of these LWL's seems to have a life of it's own, so to speak, and a kind of specialness all it's own........There is one more part coming your way very soon, my dears.......

More To Come........

I am so glad Dianne brought her camera so we finally get to see you in action. Taking you out of the director role and making you part of the scene. Way to go Dianne.
Wonderful to finally see the amazing Will. He is a true treasure.
Was interested that the former Miss Americas still keep in touch. What a great idea.
Keep those videos coming, they are such a delight.
Looking forward to Part 5 but a little sad it will be the last of that party. Surely it must be time for another one.

These cakes look delicious for sure. It is nice to see you in your royal blue, you look very nice. It is also so very nice to have pictures of fun parties with friends. Later on looking at the pictures (and the blog) you can relive them at will. Thanks for taking us to your party I feel like I was there.

Oh how wonderful this edition of your birthday picture posts is! The joyousness and genuine thrill in everyone's faces i find marvelous - especially as it seems Dianne and you didn't miss a moment of revelry yourselves. Jacquie's expressions really send that home looking at her fabulous cake.
Much love

I LOVE cake so much, that chocolate cappucino with the colorful frosting is to die for !!

Can you tell that I love cake ?

I believe that it's my ridiculous love for cakes that will keep me young.

Well, that was great Naomi!! It was funny when I was watching the video of the poppers and I was thinking that maybe they had a little something to drink and then you made that comment about how we were going to think you drank at those get togethers! LOL That was cute and it sure decorated the tables! I have never seen those poppers before but they sure look like fun. I'll have to try and find some.

I love that there are more pictures of you! I really laughed when I saw the surprised look on Jacquie's face when she realized she got a cake too!!

All great Naomi!! I'm looking forward to more!!! Hugs to you dear lady! I sure do appreciate you and your friends sharing with us about your luncheon's!

That fourth picture down from the top? You've got that same devilish twinkle in your eye that you had playing pool when your profile picture was taken.

lovely, as always. the cakes looks absolutely divine. (i would always choose chocolate, of course, but i so, so love that you each have your own cake!)

what you wrote about "never losing a child-like wonder..." that was truly beautiful. it seems like you all have that down 100%. i hope for the same for my family!!

thanks as always for a great post!

Looking at these last two posts, it came to me: It's like a five act play, complete with set designs, costumes, and ad-libbed script. It's a comedy production I think because I got a belly laugh when you said, "I think people will think we drink at these things!" I think you should win the academy awards of Ladies who Lunch!

Wow! Those poppers and the video are fun, fun, fun! I'm happy to see all of you having such a great time together...WITHOUT drinking! lol Imagine that. :)

I love those star candles, too, and what I wouldn't give to try one of those delicious cakes! As much as I love chocolate, I'd appreciate that lemon cake covered in powdered sugar (if it's as good as it looks!).

I can't wait to see that something more you promised.

Hope you had a good weekend, my friend!! Have a happy week and keep enjoying yourself at those lunches!

Hugs, Ily

What got me (besides the special cakes) was you telling the group to ham it up, talk, the camera's rollin'---hahaha How soon they forgot!? LOL
No Bridget? Now that you are 50, what ever will you do? (air kiss)

You know Noami, I feel so much a part of it just by looking through all your 'Ladies Who Lunch' posts and everyone single blog entry just put a smile on my face.

The cheerful vibes is just so strong that it radiates through my computer screen :D

I've enjoyed the 'cakes' chocolate or otherwise...bring them on kekekek.... :)

My goodness I had a lot of catching up to do. First of all your voice sounds really strong so I hope this means you are feeling great. You certainly look great in that deep blue.
Second of all you are all having too much fun - and too much cake. It's not fair!
I'm intrigued by the pale cake and wonder if it is lemony but - just to make sure - I'll try both please.
I thought the table would look a mess after all the mayhem but it looks pretty as a picture.
Ho hum - it's coffee time - but no cake:(

Good times!
I'm glad Dianne took pictures for you. That's really sweet.
But really, no alcohol at all? Not even a glass of wine? And a poinsettia would be so yummy with that.

I was sure I left a message! I wanted to ask you why you don't drink alcohol at all? I'm not talking about getting drunk, I mean just a glass of wine maybe?

You are too good! :D

Lovely photos! I love the blue star candles.

You're all such vibrant, interactive people! I wish my mom had a group of friends like you do, but then, she's shut herself off most of her life and there's no changing her now, though I continue to try.

I love the videos and as I have said before you have an amazing voice Naomi. Lee was a Miss America - I never knew and as you say she still looks like one too. I love how Jacquie is so happy about her cake - just natural and lovely. These celebrations make me smile and you ladies are all just gorgeous inspirational women. Thanks for sharing!!
