On Turning 40

I haven't been blogging lately, not for any good reason.  It's just been so hot and I've been so lethargic (and pregnant).  There has been a bit of house progress but it doesn't seem to be blog worthy...yet.  So the only semi-exciting thing going on over here was my birthday.  No, it wasn't exciting turning 40, not that 40 is a horrible thing, just not something to jump up and down over.  What was exciting was that my husband threw me a surprise birthday party and I was actually surprised!  Anyone who knows me well knows that it's nearly impossible to surprise me.  I always have a way of finding things out.  Not on purpose, but accidentally.  Apparently it's very annoying to the surprisor.  

Anyway, the only reason I'm blogging about it is because I had to share a few pics of my friend Melanie's (aka Martha Stewart) genius in baking.




I can't believe she made (and color matched) everything on the table...except for the flowers, obviously.
It looked like something I'd pin on pinterest!  

The whole party was amazing.  I had a couple of friends drive 5 hours to come!  It was an awesome day as a whole.  I was under the false assumption that my husband and I and another couple were going out to dinner that night.  In preparation, my husband had me go to get my hair and nails done which was a luxury by itself.  Unfortunately the only snafu in the plan was the dress I wore.  I have a super cute maternity dress that I wore once during my last pregnancy that would have been perfect except for the fact that it's hidden in a box somewhere in that warehouse at the end of the first Indiana Jones movie.  Or it's somewhere in a box on our third floor.  Same difference.  So I decided that since it was about 100 degrees out that I would just wear a cheap horizontal striped (what was I thinking!) sundress that was a size too big.  It seemed like the closest thing to being comfortable and naked.  It didn't translate too well though...especially in photos.  It seems in the midst of my pregnancy I've grown a buffalo hump on my back, or so the pictures would have you believe.  Oh well.  It was still an awesome day:)

  1. Happy 40th birthday! It looks like you had a beautiful birthday to celebrate. It looks like it came right out of a magazine spread.

    Happy Birthday! The heat feels like it is just starting to break here...maybe? So, it won't be long before cooler days are among us. Your friend has serious skills. How nice of everyone to show up and let you know they like you!
