Suzi Herman was our guest teacher and she was also in on the surprise. We planned a Crash/Flash party for Pastor Estell’s 60th birthday.
Class starts at 7pm, at 7:29pm while doing a flag exercise the alarms went off on our cell phones as planned. It was annouced “It’s 7:29” and all the ladies in the class started setting up the tables ad chairs and decorating the room, at 7:30pm the door opened and approximately 50-60 people crashed the class. More arrived soon after. It was awesome to see so many people there that came to celebrate Pastor Estells birthday. It was so very nice. It was also so very hot in the room with all those people we had to set up chairs outside in the yard for groups to gather and socialize. There was so much food and beverages. Don, Pastor Estells husband bought this really beautiful sheet cake. Make sure you look for the pictures of it. The surprise was a real surprise as Pastor Estell was tearful and happy at the same time. She is a well known and well loved pastor that has helped many many people.
I want to thank everyone that came and also the SOS ladies, Suzi Herman and my helpers in pulling this surprise party together. Thank you Kim J., Sherry D., and Camely. I also want to thank Pastor Estell for all she has done for me. She is an awesome woman of God and I am privileged to know her and the other Calvary Chapel members.
Trish spoke at our SOS meeting
We had a great SOS meeting this past Wednesday. Trish came and spoke with us regarding insurances and annuities. Interesting conversations and great question and answer session too. The annuity information definitely piqued our interests. If you need life insurance or want to know more about investing in what and where give Trish a call (727-687-5166). I’m sure she can help you with any of your insurance or investment questions. Oh did I mention she’s a Christian and attends Calvary Chapel worship Center too!
What a great day for a cup of tea! As a surprise early birthday present I treated Pastor Estell to Mrs Teas Tea Room in Lutz Florida (http://mrsteasgarden.com/) . A nice little place that just does “Tea Parties” and “Afternoon Tea”. A nice girly girl place, relaxing, awesome service, wonderful tea and terrific tasting foods. Each table has an eclectic table setting, very nicely done. A soup or broccoli salad are offered and after that a three tiered plate stand is brought to the table along with colorful teapots on candle stand warmers. The cookies, tarts, crumpets soup ( we had potato soup) was freshly made and delightful to the taste buds. The plate stand had equal amounts of food for Pastor Estell and myself.
It was nice, friendly, relaxing, just a great way to spend a couple of hours. I highly recommend going there. See the link for their website in my link section While you are there stop by their little sales area and check out the teapots and items for sale. very reasonably priced.
All I can say is ENJOY.Get your friends and family together and check it out. Reservations are recommended, see website for details.
