Guess who is 40????

Another big event for October was my 40th Birthday. I have actually been looking forward to my 40th birthday, it feels so grown up to say you are 40. Now, I'm not saying it has been easy to get to 40, I've had a rough time getting here. But I feel like I have grown up a lot in the last few years and getting to 40 feels like a success. Can't wait to get to 50, I will be so much smarter and wiser (well I am hoping).
I had a great birthday, it started out with a great card from my oldest friend from high school that had some very kind thoughtful words that I needed to hear. Ed got me a massage, facial and pedicure. So I felt very pampered. Unfortunately, I had to go to work. When I got home from work, this was on my garage door. You can't see it well on the picture, but it said, "So what!!! You're Another Year Older....Don't get Your Panties In a Bunch!!!!" There was a string of panties on my garage. When I got into the house, the house was covered in confetti, balloons, streamers and banners (courtesy of my friends and neighbors, the Jardines).

That evening, my besties, Nissa and Christine took me out to a yummy dinner. I was so nice to spend time with these gals. Over the years, they have cried with me and laughed with me. I really rely on these gals and I hope I can do the same for them.

When we got home, I had cake with family and friends. Then I went out to a movie with my friend Christine. I received dozens of birthday wishes, calls, cards, texts and emails from many friends and family. The start of 40 is great!
