My Birthday Girl

This little girl is 20 years old today. Isn't she beautiful!

She was also a beautiful baby.

Thursday afternoon, I drove to the city and we went to dinner. We ate at a great little pub on Spring Garden Road called "My Father's Moustache" -- good food!
We began with beverages - my Sleeman's Honey Brown and Molly's Stella Artos -- and a garden salad.

Our appetizer was Asian Crispadillas (crispy tortilla stuffed with ground chicken, chillis & ginger & topped with B'beque sauce --- so absolutely scrum-dilly-ishous! with only 12 zillion calories); this was followed by Thai sallops and linguini! It was a great meal.

Then we headed across the street to Park Lane Theatres where we saw the world premier of the new Canadian film Gunless starring Paul Gross (a total hottie!). I won the tickets from Shelagh Duffett when she offered them on her blog aliceinparislovesartandtea.

What a wonderful film it was. It was sooo funny! I haven't laughed like that at the movies in a very long time; and I haven't seen a western in eons! (I highly recommend this one; it's a little gem.)
Thank you Shelagh!
My baby is tucked up in her sister's bed where they'll talk half the night and sleep half the day tomorrow.
Ahhh! Family! How sweet it is!

There's a strong resemblance there, Mom! You have every right to be proud!

What a beauty she is. I can, like Eva, see a very strong resemblance there! Sounds the perfect day to me!
