I can’t believe more than a month has gone by since my last post! Where did November go??? It was a roller coaster month for me…a little health scare (all is totally fine!)…a fabulous Thanksgiving weekend…some much needed “mama time”, meaning my Mom was here for a nice, not-long-enough visit…a quick get-away with DH (an early birthday celebration)…the football game of the year…and a HUGE surprise party! This is just to name a few things that have happily occupied my typical writing time!
My amazing Mom, the best neighbor ever (Stephanie!), and Darling Husband pulled off one of the biggest surprises of my life…Em is still the biggest, with finding out about having twins a close 2nd ;). They put together a surprise birthday party for me…at my house…without me having so much as a clue! I am surrounded by amazing people!!! It was SO MUCH FUN! I still can’t believe they pulled it off! God Bless my Mom! She took care of my kids, cleaned my house, and threw a party! How the heck does she do it!?!?! I seriously thought that the big surprise was when our besties, Shawn & Brandy, walked in to the sports bar right before the SEC Championship started…they got me good!
My fabulous fashionista Melissa coined the WWTD, after I told her “sometimes you just have to tell him ‘I’m about to have a crazy girl moment, so just bear with me’ “. We all have those moments. Every bottle of wine was decorated! Mom does not play around with the party throwing!
fire hazard cake, it is my favorite…German Chocolate…YUMMY! I have some in the freezer to eat on my acutal bday…THANKS FOR THAT, TOO MOM!
This Sunday is the big day…I will be 4o…how’d that happen? Where did November go? Where did the last 10 years go? Heck, where did the last 20 years go? I must say, I am not scared of 40…seriously. I could not be happier in my life. I have a wonderful husband, amazing children, fantastic family, and fabulous friends…what more could a girl ask for in life??? Well, unlimitied funds would be icing on the cake…and a body like Faith Hill (have you seen her before the NFL games???) wouldn’t suck…but I guess you can’t have it all ;).
These are the shoes that I will kick 40’s butt in…or at least prance around the kitchen while I’m creating some new dishes ;). Thank you Melissa for sending me these amazing shoes! Mark would also like to thank you…my man loves hot shoes!
Today’s secret revealed…I was almost nervous about writing today, it has been too long! I promise my next post won’t take as long.
