Tooting My Own Birthday Horn!
It has been a bit crazy around here this week. Not only was I recovering from having my gall bladder removed, but the kids went back to school too. And today is my 40th birthday! I feel really proud of my age and am planning on enjoying every minute of it!
I know 40 is supposed to be this big unwelcome number. Over the hill and such... But I feel like I'm still in my 20's. My body has aged and my mind has matured (maybe) but I still feel young. I have gotten more gray hairs and some lovely crinkles to my face. I have also gained more confidence in myself as a woman, a wife, and a mother.
Today my parent's are coming into town and taking me out to lunch. I'm feeling Vietnamese.... I also will be visiting a Costco with my Mom. I don't have a membership so I feel like a little kid when I go to one of them. I am hoping on some low fat but yummy options. I really like these:
They are so delicious and healthy too!
Tonight I expect a "fancy" meal from my family with some yummy cake! So blogworld, I am celebrating today, for myself and all the other fabulous forty year olds!
