40 @ T- 361 Days

Well, I am so tired that I am sure I cannot do justice to this entry...so, I will write a bit and then let the photos tell the story.

On April 9th I celebrated my 39th birthday. My hubby asked if I wanted to wait and have a big party for my 4-0...and I said, no, let's have a count down to 40 party! And so, we did!






I have the best friends EVER! On Saturday night I had a huge birthday bash. We rented the private room at THE WORKS. This is the most amazing hamburger joint in the whole wide world! The food is AMAZING!!!! (you gotta click on the link and see the variety of burgers they offer....Oh La La...Scrumptious!)

Anyways, I invited about 40 of my closest friends and over 30 of them showed up! We had a blast. It was amazing. I saw people I hardly see since having kids, switching soccer teams and getting busy with regular life. Friends from all areas of my life came and inter-mixed. It was WONDERFUL.

There is a HUGE screen TV and we brought our new Wii system. Well, that was the BOMB! It was hilarious to see everyone playing and challenging each other! We played everything from bowling to cow racing to fishing to skeet shooting to dance revolution to air hockey. It was so much FUN!

It was an amazing night...thank you to all my friends who made it all so special!!!!

Wonder what I can do for the BIG 4-0 to top this year's party?!?!?!?!??! Better start brain storming and planning now!

I'm jealous. My 39th passed like most of my birthdays...quiet. I would like to think my husband would plan something big for my 40th, but that's not likely since pre-planning anything is not his thing. What a party that was! Hey, did you go on your scrap weekend? How was it?

I love it! It looks like you had an awesome time - makes me wish I still live in Ottawa.

If 39 was such a great party, you're going to have to work hard to top it for 40! So cool to have great friends like that, and it sounds like so much fun.
