I have to admit - turning 40 has been pretty great! It's been one of my best birthdays ever and I just feel so overwhelmed and blessed with family and friends. And just thankful I have been blessed with another year.
I pretty much have celebrated for the last week starting with my surprise party LAST Sunday! Friday Laurie and the girls came over for our annual friends gifts exchange. Laurie and I have exchanged gifts since college but now we just include our girls. It's so fun.
A friend sent me the most beautiful cake and we enjoyed it all weekend!
I wanted to celebrate my birthday Saturday with a Family Fun Day! It was a horrible day - freezing and raining but we had a great time. We went to lunch and had chips and salsa of course!
Then we hit the movies. We saw "Frozen" again. I couldn't resist. And of course Scott is always thrilled to see a princess musical! :-)
To round out our family fun day - we went bowling! I'm so terrible but I love it!
Today is my actual birthday and I couldn't think of anyway I'd rather spend my 40th birthday than going to church with my family and being with my church family and worshiping Christ's birth!
My mom did a post for my birthday and I had to laugh at this picture. Clearly Hollis and I have pitiful bangs in common. And moms that like to cut them. ha!
We went to lunch with Laurie, Steve and the girls and then Scott kept the girls and I had a little day out. I just did a little window shopping. I went to Target and didn't buy one thing. It's a Christmas miracle. I just enjoyed walking around and looking. And then I met some friends to watch "Saving Mr. Banks". It was SOOOOOO good!
