Happy, happy birthday!
Laurna, you're the best!
Happy, happy birthday,
So get a little rest!
Happy, happy birthday,
And please stay off that foot!
Happy, happy birthday,
And I can't think of a logical rhyme for "foot" that works in this context!

Oh well, I tried!  Consider that your birthday card from me.   ;D

Well, it's sort of close.  ;)

Have a very happy birthday, Laurna! You are the best!  :)

As a birthday present my sister and I just watched the extended blue-ray version of the Desolation of Smaug.
There was a surprising side plot and an important character who was in it; one who had only been spoken of before. I wonder if that actor had felt bad when every one of his scenes had been cut out of the theater release. There were at least four good scenes that had extended dialogue which really did add to the plot lines. Just be prepared for 3 1/2 hours.

Thank you Ladies. Aww to the cake! Love it, but I am not sure I can cut into that one.  ;D

My sister baked me the berry pie when I did not do it myself. Black berry pie for breakfast, any one?.

Did you all see the image of Chris Hemsworth as the  Huntsman.... Birthday Eye candy! :o Think of Alaric as the huntsman when he first meets Richenda.

I would have sent you some scrumptious lemon drizzle cake made by one of our bible-study members last night (a man, may it be noted!) but unfortunately I'd just eaten the last piece before I read your birthday wish for something lemon.

Oh, that sounds yummy!
I have had a few virtual lemon food so far, but nothing yet from the real world. So the craving goes on! May be this weekend I can make some lemon bars.  ;D

I've known a number of men who were excellent cooks/bakers.

The church I attended in my growing-up years had a large Filipino population and as such, we got some Filipino food as frequent stars at church potluck dinners, one of which was lumpia (basically Filipino egg rolls--look them up if you don't know the yumminess that they are!), and the person in the church who made the best lumpia (at least in my opinion) was a man somewhat younger than my parents.  His wife said she let him do most of the cooking and she did the dishes.  :D

That sounds like a doable arrangement. My older brother was a fantastic cook. And everything he made was yummy. Now my dad and younger brother could not boil water without burning the pan. Proving it is a learned trait and not genetics. ;D

It's Laurna's birthday again!

Happy birthday!  I hope you have a wonderful day!

(Just pretend that the name "Eliana" at the base of the cake reads "Laurna.")  Enjoy!

Happy birthday, Laurna!  I believe His Grace of Corwyn has his kitchen staff very busy preparing for the feast to celebrate your day!

(And nice cake, DR!)

Thank you!  I know Laurna likes to sew and likes pretty dresses, although I couldn't really find a Victorian/Victorian-inspired dress-cake I liked, so I did the best I could.  ;)

(Although there was this one gorgeous dress [an actual formal gown, not a cake that looks like one] that was Haldane crimson with gold embroidery . . .)

Happy birthday, Laurna!  Alaric says that while a Haldane crimson and gold ballgown would of course be lovely, he would like to suggest the Morgan colors for you instead.  So here is a Victorian ballgown in the Morgan colors:

Nothing like a little behind-the-scene friendly rivalry influencing your ballroom wardrobe options, is there?   ;)
Title: Re: Happy birthday, Laurna!
Post by: DesertRose on November 17, 2017, 08:50:38 am
And of course, having run off at the mouth about a beautiful Haldane crimson dress with gold embroidery, it took me half forever to find the [expletive deleted] gown.

But!

Ta-da!

Good Morning, Ladies and Gents!

Oh, I want to get all dressed up and Party! I can wear the Corwyn gown for afternoon tea-luncheon and then change into the Haldane gown for a Rhuemuth court ball.  Sounds like a dream day to me. If we are in Gwynedd modern times. Do you think one of you fine ladies could obtain Morgan Haldane's Name for my dance card. Perhaps for nice long Waltz. (heart bounding)  ;D

His Grace has happily scratched Duchess Oksana from his dance card and has added your name.  (He now owes you one.   ;D)

Thank you, Shiral, I am having a good day.

Title: Re: Happy birthday, Laurna!
Post by: Laurna on November 18, 2017, 06:19:48 pm
Hello Demercia, thank you for the  happy day wishes.

Since a Victorian lady changed 3 to 5 times a day, I have no trouble warring both gowns on the same day. but due to the underpinnings being so very different for both gowns above, I will definitely need a  dressing maid. LOL. Oh and I need to reverse the order of wearing. the Higher necked gown for the daytime tea and the off the shoulder short sleeve for the evening ball.
All smiles.  Who wants to join me.
Title: Re: Happy birthday, Laurna!
Post by: Jerusha on November 18, 2017, 06:22:20 pm
Count me in!  (A nice gown in the black and gold of Tehryn will work quite nicely.)
Title: Re: Happy birthday, Laurna!
Post by: MidnightBlue on November 18, 2017, 07:19:43 pm
I just don't think I could pull off the gown look myself.  No one really wants to see me try.

 :D
Title: Re: Happy birthday, Laurna!
Post by: Laurna on November 18, 2017, 07:56:16 pm
Jerusha, I will be happy to lend you my black and gold gown.

(http://www.trulyvictorian.net/var/images/product/300.300/298pic.png)

We will wow the Morgans, you and I.

MidnightBlue, I think a black tailed-tux with a midnight blue cumber-bun can be obtained for you; I have friends. But if you prefer a highland plaid or tunic, that can be arranged too.  I love having my friends at the ball. Lots of people to gossip and joke with.

Post by: Jerusha on November 19, 2017, 12:52:28 pm
 What a beautiful gown, Laurna!  I shall be very careful as I wear it.

Duke Alaric is a skilled dance partner, so I am sure we won't need to worry about him stepping on the hem.   :)
