My 40th Bday

Yesterday was my 40th birthday. I spent most of the week before slowly celebrating and enjoying myself. I know it showed on the scale but I did not care.
Even Google knew it was my birthday!!!
I feel very blessed to have lived this long and gotten through all of the stuff I have been through.  I also had my youngest child turn 3yrs old a few days ago. 
So to say that it has been a whirlwind would be an understatement.
Let me share some of the pics from my bday week(end).

I got up and took the kids to school.

Ran some errands with my hubby.

Then went to lunch with hubby at

 My hubby tried ( and liked) edamame.

 I had the lunch portion of the Luau Salad. YUmmy!

 Then I got one slice of Linda's fudge cake. It took me 2 sittings to finish it. Again...DELISH!!

 Then we went to the mal.. I have always wanted to try Bare Minerals make up. So he got me some. Check out the difference:

Me up close and personal.

I also had my annual physical done on my bday .. so my day was productive and fun. Best of both worlds.
 When I came back to work on Tuesday I had a mailbox full of stuff. It felt great especially since I had felt so down the week before having been 'stood up' by some mew, some-called friends...


I definitely feel like I started my 40s off right. I even exercised on my birthday. I really want to make exercise a daily thing in my life. I know it will only help me.
