OMG you guys!!!!!!! I am 40!!!!!! Here is me yesterday on my 40th Birthday!
It’s been a whirlwind of a weekend, but a fun one turning 40. I was in denial about being over the hill and I didn’t plan anything in advance but I’m good at impromptu plans 😉
It started with happy hour at Ol’Mexico on Friday with some of my co-workers, then Saturday we had lunch at Taco House. I love tacos! Great start to a very nice birthday.
I talked to my mom and dad for a brief call followed by a surprise call from my Gram & Gramp. I think this is the first time they’ve called me on my birthday so that was pretty special. They are 88 & 91 years young now. lol
Later I had a wonderful meal (sans children) at Bonefish Grill in the West End. We had bang-bang shrimp, calamari, steak and lobster, wine and pomegranate martinis, topped by the best donut dessert I’ve ever had in my life. I will dream about those fluffy pillows of pastry for years to come. Oh! And complimentary cheesecake to boot!
I was tired, stuffed out of my mind, and had a few cocktails under my belt but wasn’t ready to call it a night yet. I met up with my BFF Mary and her husband, and my dear friend Cassie for a couple of hours at a local dive bar (Doc’s Landing). They were playing old school music, the same stuff they played back in the day when I was just a kid hitting the bar scene for the first time 😉
Earlier today I met Brian, Michelle and the kids for brunch at Green Mill. Yum!
Later this afternoon we went to Maplewood Mall to get a few things for our upcoming trip to Florida. We took the kids on the carousel and walked around the mall. It was a nice ending to a great birthday weekend.
I have to admit, 40 feels pretty good. I’m looking forward to the next decade, I hear your 40’s are the best!
