April 23, 2012. Oh dear. I never thought this day would really come. And it has come and gone. Well, at least that day has come and gone. I could say a lot about it. How I feel. Physically. Mentally. But this post would be like pages long. So here is a short cap:
I am 40 years old - (That's the first time I have said that phrase - and it will be my last - lol!) I feel blessed to have an amazing husband and 2 absolutely adorable little girls. The friendships I have made will last me at least another 40 years. I feel great mentally and I don't think I look too shabby for my age either. I wouldn't change my life for anything or anyone.

So how have I embraced the new decade? Well let's see there was Vegas. Then there was an evening of cocktails and nibbles on Saturday night:
If all of our kids were with us there would have been 14.5 of them! 

Then there was a little flip flop extravaganza : )
I LOVE Tory Burch!

Then I shared my special day with these 2 monkeys : )
Here they are playing with their new toys (Squinkies and a Baby Doll).
Nothing like sharing the gift of presents on your birthday!

Then it was off to the The Beachside for a family dinner.

And just how BIG is this Sundae?
The four of us could not polish it off : )
Really. I swear.

Back home . . . It was a Lulu and the New iPad
kind of evening.

So April 23, 2012 was a day that was filled with much LOVE and JOY. There is no other way I would have wanted to enter this next decade. I look forward to living it up this year! On that note I will say, "I'm not done celebrating." Why not take it to another continent? ; ) 

Here is a sneak peek:

Stay tuned! And thank you to everyone who made me feel extra special on my day!
