Happy Birthday to Me....

I am officially 40 as of 7:38 pm tonight. It is strange to think that 40 years ago my mom was healthy and a first time mom. What a beautiful day weather wise.

Today was fairly quiet but after yesterday that is the way to go..

My Birthday Luau yesterday was so much fun. There was me and 8 of my closet friends eating, drinking, and talking. I started cooking Friday night, and finished in the morning while my sister decorated my deck. Guests arrived by 2:00 p.m. and the party began. Being the first to reach 4o out of my peeps makes me feel older but hell what do they say these days? Something about 40 being the new 30?

My husband took (for the first time by himself) both kids out so that I didn't have to host and mother. That alone was a gift in itself. He need not get me anything.

Here are some pics from the day.

  1. Happy 40th! How awful that you lost your mom when you were 11. That is my greatest fear, leaving my beautiful daughter without her mama to raise her. And how awful that your grandfather molested you. I don't know what to say about your grandmother... except I guess times were different then, that women were more dependent on husbands and thus were often forced to keep their mouths and eyes shut to such awful things.
