HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!

Not today, but yesterday I turned 41! And believe me, being over 40 is so overrated! They say that 40 is the new 20! But, I say it's all in the attitude! Plus, my kids keep me feeling young (or so I tell myself).

I'm not a big birthday celebration type person. I don't like all the attention on me. I don't like to "plan" things for myself, so whatever happens, happens, and I'm totally, 100% fine with that! Seriously!

But, I was so blessed, and everything I did was spur of the moment. Well, except for breakfast. That WAS planned! Our church is having another fun week for the kids, so that gives us moms a chance to have some "me" time. A bunch of us planned on having breakfast together, and it was a great time of fellowship!

One of my friends offered to watch my kids so that way my husband and I could plan on doing something by ourselves. Of course, I took her up on her offer!

It was such a relaxing night, and we actually got to talk without being interrupted! And surprisingly, our conversation wasn't all about the kids!

We had Mexican food (and I didn't take pictures because I already have the same food on my blog), and afterward we headed over to Yogurtland for dessert!

Let me just say that it was SO NICE to take my time in there to decide what I wanted! I didn't have to help anyone else, or keep an eye on everyone.

This was so yummy! And no, those are not croutons, those are cheesecake bites! Mmm! Oh, and there are also mini brownies and crushed up butterfinger candy in there too!

After we got the yogurt, we headed over to my friends, and they surprised me with a cake that they baked! We hung out there for awhile, came home, and the kids crashed! We all had a long day, but a blessed one at that!!!

God is good!

Alicia, it sounds like you had a fun day. I'm sending you a belated happy birthday wish. I like to look at the age thing as we only get better and wiser as we age. At least, I hope so. LOL.

Blessings and love,
Debbie

Why birthdays aren't complete without special food is not mine to know. But I'm so happy you enjoyed your natal day together with your family with all those blessings! Belated Birthday wish- keep the Christian spirit glowing in your faces.

Well it sounds like you had a very happy birthday and for the record you don't look a day over 31....I am 43 and my kids keep me feeling so young with all of their activities I am enjoying life more now than ever.
I am glad you had a nice evening out, Tito and I went out to dinner once without the kids and it was so quiet and just nice to be alone.

Happy Belated Birthday to you and I’m glad that you had a great day! The thing that makes ME feel old was (a few days ago) realizing that my oldest son is going to be 40 in two years! My youngest is 28!
