Embracing 40

So this year I turned 40.  I haven't figured out what all the fuss is about.  I am very happy with where I am in my life.  I have a wonderful husband, my kids are healthy,  I have an awesome family, really great friends, a job that I love, a nice place to live, a car that runs and I'm cancer free.  I couldn't ask for anything more.

My birthday celebrations began with a girls trip to Paint-a-piece with Suzy & Amanda.  This was a birthday gift from Suzy for me & Amanda.  (All 3 of our birthdays are within a month)

My finished product

My actual birthday started with hugs & kisses from my 3 favorite people in the world.  Then it was on to school.

My room moms arrived with these beautiful roses, crown, & button to wear.  They brought me a yummy lunch, a gift card to get a pedicure, & cupcakes for my class.  I felt spoiled.

When I went to my car they had decorated my car.  I had to take the kids to the dentist and people were honking & waving.  A big rig almost gave me a heart attack.

Missy Robertson from Duck Dynasty tweeted me Happy Birthday.   I was super excited!

I went and got a pedicure & ended up with a manicure too because it was free for my birthday.

For dinner we went to Mezcal to celebrate.


I love these ladies!

My baby girl has the sweetest heart.  

I have the best parents in the world.  I am so thankful for everything they do for me, my siblings, & for all their grandkids.

On Saturday Rob & I went to dinner & a movie.  We had a great night.  When we got home I found the house full of family & friends.  I don't have many pics because I am usually the one taking pics & I was busy enjoying everyone.  I will add a few party pics when mom puts them on her computer.

My special guest included:
Rob, Hunter, Haley, Mom, Dad, Amy, Jason, Beau, Jonah, Carter, Izzy, Heather, Hannah, Charlie, Jamie, Mamaw, Papaw, Uncle Kelley, Uncle Ray, Aunt Wanda, Monette
Nick, Suzy, & Will Huber,
Trace, Amanda, Evan & Ryan Crenshaw
Kevin, Monica, & Kaity Gallimore
Johnny, Julie, Tate, & Lily Kolwyck
Anthony, Claire, Mac, & Emma Fox
John, Beth, Drew, & Ben May
Jason, Andy, & Justin Ogle
Kim, Jase, & Vickey Headley
Chris & Christine Bingham


I am very blessed & thank God for my blessings daily!  I am thankful he has given me 40 great years and look forward to what he has planned  for my future.

Carter's Birthday & some weekend fun!

 We went to Mezcal to celebrate Carter's 8th birthday.

After a long day of volleyball we went to the Crenshaw's for dinner.  We had the Mill's girls too.

It was a great weekend.
