Yesterday I turned the big 4-0.

I swear it seems like just yesterday my college roommates were throwing me a surprise party for my 21st birthday!  

And now I'm 40.

How on earth did this happen??

I had a wonderful day and felt so loved by
 family and dear friends.

My sweet friend Molly sent all the way from Reno, a birthday package filled with confetti filled balloons, a banner and my big 4-0 Mylar balloons.  She wanted to make sure my house got decorated since she wasn't there to do it herself.

My darling friends who I have been friends with since pre-kids surprised me at breakfast with:

40 Polar Pops from Circle K
40 Diet Dr. Peppers
40 Reese's Peanut Butter Cups


Isn't that so clever?? And sweet?

This gift from one of my bestie's in Florida {Joe's cousin, who actutally introduced us!} made me LAUGH OUT LOUD!  And then LAUGH some more!!!

In case you're wondering...she made me a tool belt {don't ask...} and it says 'Grab a Hump and Hang On for another 40 Year Humpathon.'

I died.

I used to work as a DJ at a radio station called 'Camel Country' and our motto was "Grab a Hump and Hang On"

True story.
And we'll never forget it.๐Ÿ˜‚

Two of my sweetest friends spoiled me on my birthday eve with dinner at Oregano's {my fave} and a giant basket filled with Rae Dunn stuff {another fave!}

Birthday lunch at Someburro's with my parents and sis.

Did you know they give you $10 free credit there on your bday?

We finished the day off by driving up the mountains to stay in a cabin for the weekend with Joe's family.  

My sweet mother-in-law had this waiting for me....

Of course it wasn't already eaten, haha.  We devoured it so fast I forgot to take a pic until after the damage was done.

I know that some of you have sent me birthday wishes via social media and I am OH SO excited to read them all.  I seriously can't wait.

I am participating in a 10 day social media fast right now.  For me that Instagram, Facebook or Twitter until Thursday.

I can do hard things.

THANK YOU to everyone who has made me feel SO VERY loved on my special day!
