Celebrate good times......come on!

There's a party goin' on right here
A celebration to last throughout the years
So bring your good times, and your laughter too
We gonna celebrate your party with you

I had a super spectacular fun day today. The hubby threw me a not-so-much surprise 40th birthday party for my upcoming big day on Tax Day. You see, I instructed him a couple years ago that he was to throw me some sort of birthday bash for the BIG 4-0. I even put a friend in charge of him to get the task done-- see ladies, if you want something done, you have to put a woman in charge of it! Thanks for the help Penni.

I guess there were about 25-30 people there and I am so thankful to have a great group of friends who shared this special event with me! I even got some "happys", which is what I call presents! I got gift certificates to some of my favorite places....Target, Starbucks and The Globe restaurant. And I also got several other fabulous "happys". Woo hoo.

I'd like to go ahead now and thank all the major greeting card companies for making birthday cards for the 40 year old so freakin' funny! I almost had a bladder control problem on a few of them. I should probably scan a few in during my spare time.

Besides my friends being there, the other two highlights of the party were the delicious cake and my super terrific slide show--- which I will share with you on my OFFICIAL birthday. So, please, do what is necessary to subside your excitement while awaiting the release of the video. I mean, don't you want to see a 40 year highlight video of someone you don't know at all?? (sorry, family and dear friends, I have discovered that you are not the only ones reading this)

So, I'd like to say thank you to my dear hubby for throwing me a wonderful party and again to all my friends for coming! I love you all!!

Hey O-2 Sorry I couldn't make it for the big 4-0. You seem to have handled this mile stone very gracefully. Hope I do as well come July. Happy Birthday!
