Welcome to my big 40th birthday EXTRAVAGANZA!!!

I am 40 years old today and I FREAKING LOVE IT!!  I not only love my birthday, but I love this one because I can say “sayonara” to my 3os. I wasn’t really a big fan of the 30th decade – it was hard, but the 40s? Bring it on!!

It has been cold and cloudy here for the last several days, but today in honor of My 40th Birthday Extravaganza, Mr. Sun decided to come out and play. Also, when I got in my car to head to work this morning this song was playing on the radio:

(This song was also playing the morning of my wedding nearly 15 years ago, so it has special meaning for me.)

I know, right? How much more perfect can it get?!


I’m working today, but I’m taking tomorrow off so I can have a 3 Day Birthday Weekend Extravaganza!! (I do love the word “extravaganza” ya know) I’m going to dinner tonight with my family and my sister and her family (Mexican food =  birthday margaritas!), and then tomorrow I’m going to do whatever the heck I want.  I think I’m going to get a mani/pedi, then hit my favorite antique stores, then lunch at a cute lil cafe where I will eat whilst reading my new birthday present that I bought for myself:

I cannot freakin wait to get my hands on this thing and start reading!!   After lunch, there might be more shopping, or maybe a movie, who knows. And yes, I will most likely be doing all of this alone, but I’m okay with that.  Last year I spent my birthday doing just this type of thing and I had the best day. So I’m really looking forward to tomorrow.


Well I should probably get some work done, since I’m here (who am I kidding – I’m going to be worthless all day!).  I hope you all have a great weekend!!
