Bring It On!

Ready or not it happened. One week ago I turned 40. I was not traumatized by this at all. In fact I had been looking forward to turning 40. Something about stability, older kids and having a little more wisdom and smarts than in my 20's and 30's. We'll see.

After the "unsurprise" party, my husband whisked me away the next day. Oh, boy was I excited. We don't do this all that often. So this was a real treat.

However, I was a little nervous. We left the kids home alone. This was the first time and Mackenzie was left driving them to and fro. Good thing she is such a mature and responsible girl.
Scott and I ended up in Paradise Valley at the Intercontinental Montelucia. President Obama stayed here a couple months ago when he visited.

Camelback mountain was right out our room. It was beautiful! The resort is awesome! It is Tuscan inspired (right up my alley). It had great amenities not to mention room service.

It about killed Scott to order this for me. It was delicious! Isn't it pretty?

We ate, relaxed, shopped, went to a movie and even slept in. What a great start to a birthday! Thanks dear!! Let's not wait so long to do this again.

40 was a great birthday! Parties, lunch with friends, a night away, house decorated by the kids and a great family dinner. What more can a girl ask for?

Now that I am officially in my 40's my new motto is "Bring It On!"

I can totally see Scott freaking out about how three bites of something costs like $10! Do you know how many QT trips that is?

Congrats on the big 4-0! And-you are in great shape to bring it on. What an insipration you are to me. Sorry we missed the party. Best wishes
