Wonderful 40th Birthday

I had a wonderful 40th birthday. Friday night I had a yummy lobster dinner with my family & angel food cake for dessert...mmmmm. Saturday started out a little rough...I got lost going to my friend's house! Yes, see what happens when you turn 40? You lose all sense of direction & memory. I ended up in a town called Viera with 1 gallon of gas left in my tank & no gas station in sight. Luckily I was able to find a gas station after driving about 5 miles...whew...did not want to be sitting on the side of the road celebrating my birthday.

I was an hour late getting to my friend Julie's house. From there we left & guess what....almost got lost again. This time I wasn't driving - so can't blame me. We managed to find the hotel & then...got lost going to the room. Ahhhh, there seems to be a theme to this. Finally made it to the room & then there was a knock on the door!!!! It was my other 2 close friends...what a surprise! I was thrilled.

We went to Rainforest Cafe for some appetizers, then to the pool to get some sun. It was very relaxing....the weather was perfect...like 80 degrees & sunny. We went to Bahama Breeze for dinner & although we had to wait an hour for a table, it was worth it. We got back to the room around 9:30 & sat around talking & struggled to stay up until 11 pm...lol. We just aren't the party girls we were back in our 20's. We got up the next morning & went to breakfast & then went our separate ways. It was wonderful spending time with my friends though. We rarely get the chance to spend more than a few hours together here & there.

Sunday afternoon my mom came over & we are attempting to organize & remodel my house. It started off well...working on the kitchen....threw away so much stuff. Then we started on my bathroom...tearing down the wallpaper. Boy, is that ever time consuming. I want to paint it...but I have a long way to go with getting the wallpaper off the walls. Next up after this...my bedroom wallpaper. Not looking forward to that project.

Today I'm having lunch with my mom, favorite aunt & my sister-in-law at one of my favorite restaurants...The Olive Garden. The birthday celebration continues...haha.

Thank you everyone for the birthday greetings/comments!!!!!!

Sounds like your birthday is going well. I have no sense of direction and would always get lost. Keep on partying. Oh to be 40 again, LOL
