My husband is turning forty...

The big four-ohhh!! How can this be possible?!?! I am only like 24 years old right?!?! Oh no... that's right I am also going to 40... in July just a few months away! It is so hard to believe the years seem to be flying by. Actually being in our forties feels pretty good to me. I am exactly where I want to be. David'd actually birthday is April 15th...but it is a tradition in my house to celebrate birthdays as often as possible. So we will be saying "happy birthday" in as many ways as possible over the next month.

We had a busy weekend. My father in law & his wife Willean flew up from Florida for the weekend. We had lunch on Saturday & then headed out to the Flemmingotn outlets to do a bit of shopping. I threw a birthday dinner party on Saturday night at our friend's restaurant, the Spice of Life. We had a nice little group of friends to celebrate with, it was a great time. We had lots of yummy food & some really nice wine. The restaurant has been totally renovated since the damage from the flood. If you are local, take the time to check it out. The food is excellent, you won't be dissapointed. Introduce yourself to the owner Fred Llavarias & tell him we sent you. He is a fabulous host & will make you feel right at home.

Of course I was in such a hurry to get to the dinner, I forgot my camera. Luckily my father in law saved the day. He had his camera & got a few shots.

David is on the right with his cool new Tommy Bahama shirt. Lori & Chris are on the left. That is our friend & the restaurant owner, Fred, pouring the wine.

David's father & his wife Willean.

The whole group of us

I am not sure what David is doing with his hand in this shot...he really hadn't had any wine I can't blame it on that.

Willean, Cindy & Mark.

Bob, David, & Willean

Thank you to all who came to celebrate with us. David had a great time & it meant so much to him.

Please don't forget...there are still a few days to enter at here to find out more!
