Yes I'll say it
I hit the age only my parents could ever be.
I mean wasn't it just yesterday I was in 8th grade and we were throwing my mom ....MY MOM her 40th.
I mean surely not me? I'm what 26? I must be because I feel it
Back to reality
I had my whole 40 to 40 mission going on and while I didn't hit my goal of 40 I came dern close
34 lbs ....
So I lost a little toddler huh?
My Birthday was the 11th and I think I scored in the presents department. I got more dresses than a Princess going to the Ball! I was pampered galore and even got 2 dates out of it
Here's me and my oldest girl on my day!!!! (one of the 6 dresses...yes 6. I mean I did turn 40 after all)
Date 1 was at Tru Fire. Best hummus and fried hummus I've had in a long while!
My mom came into town and gave us date #2....Kenny's Burger Joint. If you live in our area you must go... Fantastic Burgers....Great date...great food
Nothing like getting time away from the kids!!
Next date I went for my white eyelet and brown scrunchy boots and denim jacket. Feels good to be a girl again in pretty things!
I ended up making 2 cakes. A brownie bottom cake and my all time favorite 10 years straight Triple Decker Strawberry Cake from Southern Living
I was really dreading the whole turning 40 thing...but it honestly doesn't feel any different than when I turned 30. I guess we associate 40 with old age and truly I feel younger than I did 20 years ago! (ok maybe not 20)
