If you get the chance, you should turn 46!

If I could do it all over again, I would. Daily. 
Turning 46 wasn’t so bad. 
Seriously. I recommend it to all of you. 
A few of our East Coast gang friends came over for the weekend to help me celebrate. 
Friday night Coach cooked a gorgeous dinner for us….good thing we stayed in, it rained like you would not believe. 
Seriously….you wouldn’t. 
Saturday night, the grown ups…heading out. 
  We had a beautiful dinner overlooking the gulf of Mexico. 
We witnessed a wedding AND a marriage proposal.
And…I forgot my camera….the sunset was amazeballs. 
See? Freakin’ camera phone doesn’t have enough flash.  Oye. 

When Heather, PJ and Superboy visit, there is always a lot of wine laughter. 
I’m talking the burning calories kind of laughter.
 See? Mouths wide open….catching flies joy.   
Little superboy is growing up quick-He’ll be 4 next week!
I’m waiting for fins to sprout on him…quite the swimmer. 
 We had a great weekend with them; they make me feel so special!

Come Tuesday, the actual day of my birth I had a few things planned.
I worked in the garden in the morning, got a haircut, had lunch with the Coach, went to my favorite store (Home Depot!) and then dinner with the family. 
We ate in a clamshell for dinner!
Yes, I was Ariel the Little Mermaid for the night…notice you can’t see my fins. 
The girls spoiled me with sparkly goodies. {I love that they shop with their own money!}
My family bestowed me with gifts, flowers a fruit bouquet and well wishes….I’m lucky.
The Coach surprised me with sweet cards a personalized poem and a weekend away at a deluxe resort.

There were so many flowers in the house that I quoted my Grandma:
“Who died? It looks like a funeral in here!”

Yeah, I’m all sorts of bruised from pinching myself. 
Only 363 days until I can do it all over again.

  1. Everyone should get the chance.You look so tan and glamorous in your night out pictures.And stop the truck right this second, you ate in the clam seat?That means you are a VIP, right?I can not believe I know someone cool enough to eat in the clam chair!


  2. It looks as if you had a fabulous birthday celebration. I'm tempted to say that everyone was spoiling you with all the wonderful birthday events and presents. I'm trying to remember my 46th birthday, but that was too far back for me to recall.


  3. Wow—what a fantastic birthday you had this year… How will your family and friends TOP this one?????? I'm sure they will –but you have to wait an entire year.. Oh My!!!!!!Great set of photos of a beautiful woman and her family/friends.Hugs,Betsy


  4. I'm so happy for you! And (again) \”YOU ROOK MAHVELOUS, DAHLING…and you know who you are!\” Your clothes, hair and overall style are fab. The love and laughter you inspire are even better. Happy days to you! xoxo
