How Did I Get This Old??

I turned 40 on Saturday. Wow, how did that happen? It still seems so funny to say it. I certainly don't feel old, I guess that's what's important anyway! My kids often tell me that I sometimes act like a 12 year old, and I'm okay with that too! I guess being a constant goof will make you feel younger!

I spent the day with my best friend and her 15 year old daughter. We went shopping, because you have to spend money on your birthday right? We hit up Hobby Lobby. I love that place!

They had all of their spring and beachy decorations out. Don't you just love this hula girl? Too cute!

We played with different ways to make wreaths!

I picked out some really cool fabric. My friend is going to sew me a camera strap! Yay for friends who can sew!

We also found a pattern to make some sexy vintage aprons! It's so much more fun to cook when you have on pearls and a vintage apron!

We ended the day with Chick-fil-A and an ice cream birthday toast!

My oldest son bought me some Riesling. He is so very thoughtful. I love that wine, it goes great with desserts.
Oh, I almost forgot, on the way to my friends house I dropped a cd in the floor board of my car, when I bent to pick it up I noticed a package. My husband bought me a zoom lens for my camera and left it in the car for me to find. He is way too good to me. I will include the lens and some pictures I took in another post. It's really cool and would be great for spying on people! ;)


  1. Happy birthday! You don't look 40, but what is 40 suppose to look like? That doesn't even look like you in the picture.

  2. Happy Birthday! looks like you had a lovely day out with the girls. can't wait to see your camera strap on your camera with it's new lens!

  3. That sounds like so much fun, happy belated Birthday! Love the pics :)

  4. Happy Birthday! And who told you 40 is old??

  5. Happy belated birthday! 40 is not old! It sounds like you had a fun day.

  6. Happy Be-lated birthday!
    I turned 40 last fall so I understand how you feel about the #. You kind of have a "whoa, how did I get here?" moment. LOL
    I'm glad that you had such a fun day. I spent my 40th bawling my head off... :P (not fun)



I love your comments!
