"Happy Birthday my beautiful friend [Dina]," Teresa wrote in the caption of her March 7 post, which featured a series of sweet photos of Dina and Teresa together, including several throwback captures, over the years. She went on to add, "May God shower you with blessings today and always."

Teresa concluded her message by expressing her gratitude for having such a close friendship with Dina, writing in the caption, "You are special to me and my daughters [and] I am so grateful to have you in my life for this long and look forward to celebrating the next chapters in our life together. We all celebrate this day with you in a very special way. Love you forever XOXO."

Dina showed her appreciation for Teresa's heartfelt birthday message, writing in the comments, "Love you my sister."

The RHONJ alum definitely spent her milestone birthday in a memorable way, as she recently revealed several moments from her travels abroad with her husband, Dave Cantin, as well as opened up about her "self discovery journey" ahead of her 50th birthday.

"I wrote this last night of the eve of my 50th Birthday here in South Africa," Dina wrote in the caption of her post, alongside stunning captures from her trip.

She went on to add, in part, "I had just gotten out of what I thought would be just another great spa treatment. I was not expecting what happened on that massage table. I will share all the details another time as I’m still trying to find the words…I can only briefly describe it as a profound 'spiritual experience'. I’ve had many of these throughout the years on my self discovery journey."

Dina also shared another capture with her hubby, along with a glorious view in the background, from their first day in South Africa.

"First full day in South Africa. The air is so clean here…I can’t get enough of it!" she wrote in the caption of her post, adding, "We saw wild ostrich, penguins and baboons and I’m in my freakin' glory!"

Teresa's fiancé, Luis "Louie" Ruelas, showed love to Dina and Dave, writing in the comments, "Amazing!! Love you guys."

Speaking of Louie, Dina and Dave both played a huge part in helping Louie pop the question to Teresa during the group's vacation together in Greece last year. And the foursome also spent Dina's 49th birthday together as well, with Dina sharing her appreciation for getting to celebrate with her dearest friends.

She wrote at the time, in part, "It was so sweet of [Dave] to include one of my dearest friends too. It’s been so long since [Teresa] and I spent quality time together and getting to know her new man was such a pleasure. Thank you [Louie] for your generosity and open heart too!"
