Birthday Birthday

This Saturday I will be turning a young and fit 51!

My birthday always falls on Canada's Victoria Day long weekend, which means I get nearly 3 days of relaxation. Yeah! My plans include hosting a bunch of my kids' friends who are joining us for the weekend... hmmm, maybe this won't be as relaxing as I thought. But with the amazing weather forecast it seems we'll be basking in the sun and barbecuing up a storm. That's definitely my idea of a good weekend.

Even though we aren't having a major celebration as we did last year for the BIG 50, we've been having our fair share of fun and will continue to do so over the weekend. P.S. He wouldn't want me to say, but Robert celebrated his birthday on Tuesday... shhh!

Here are a few pics from birthday celebrations that have occurred thus far...

We celebrated last Friday with our friends, Marilyn & Richard, and Robert's cousin Tony & his wife Joanie at Mrs. Mitchell's restaurant in Violet Hill, Ontario. It's always a special evening when we visit that restaurant.


Playing photographer. How did I wind up with the fancy camera even though Robert's the real photographer? Seems he's having trouble navigating the point-and-shoot!


Celebrating last night with our kids at 199 in Orangeville, Ontario. Yet another fantastic meal!


Blowing out the candles on a delicious slice of Creme Brulee Cheesecake. I definitely indulged in a piece of birthday cake and a glass of wine last night.

My birthday is tomorrow too! I will officially be middle age (45) and it's not a big deal when I see what you've done!
I'm from Michigan and see you are coming here to do the triatholon soon. Good luck to you!! I will not be there in person, but in spirit for you and look forward to your blog update of your Michigan adventures.
Have a great day tomorrow, I'm celebrating by taking my kids (12 and 7) to Phantom of the Opera. Lisa

Happy Birthday Tosca!! Every morning I get up and read your blog or surf your site. Your wealth of knowledge has taught me so much, and I am proud to say I am well on my way to becoming the person I have always dreamed of being.
I can't wait to meet you someday....and show you how you helped transform my life. My mom who turned 48 yesterday, introduced me and my sister to your Eat Clean Diet, changing our lives forever.
Thanks Tosca....you're an inspiration!

Due to lack of time during these occasions, I sometimes prefer birthday cake recipes that are easy to make and taste great. However, we can follow such easy recipes for other items too for your birthday party or other special occasion.

If you've got the motivation to create your own birthday cakes, you can be creative and innovative. First of all, you've to understand the choice and preferences whose birthday you are going to celebrate. However, if it children's birthday it could be very exciting and full of fun.

Due to lack of time and busy schedule, people tend to eat out in restaurants. If there are quick and easy clean eating recipes using simple ingredients, people would prefer to prepare their own food and eat clean.

This is perfect when we get vacations and we can spend a good time with our relatives, that's something terrific, and so much more when we can lose weight too.
