Weekend Festivities

Have I got some weekend plans!  I know I've mentioned it before, but I will be turning 40 (really) soon.  Monday to be exact.  A few months ago, I was totally upset about this prospect. But... as time does... it has passed and new perspectives have been gained.  So, I'm not so upset, now.  In fact, I'm looking forward to a "fresh, new" decade.

But to top it off with a cherry, my friends and The Hubs have been planning and being sneaky.  I've known something was going on... they told me as much... but I hadn't a clue what, exactly.  Strippers were threatened.  Oh, then it became our husbands would be the strippers.   Uh.  No.  Well, this past Wednesday, I met one of my friends for lunch and she issued me this invitation to my own birthday festivities.

How cool is this card?  She has an Etsy shop if you want to see more of her creations. 

Seriously... it's gorgeous, and classy... and the best part is that it has invited me to two of my favorite places to be, with some of the best people around!  I really am very excited. 

I'm thinking there will be other things "going on", but at this point, I'm happy with what I know.  I hope it's not fake... something to "throw me off the scent" so to speak.  Y'know... and then they ferret me off to some Nickelodeon inspired place where I get pinned with "over the hill" buttons and slimed with green slime.  I don't think it is... I hope it isn't.

Anyhoo... tomorrow begins with the Race for the Cure downtown.  The Hubs and I will be walking, along with a few friends and our youngest.  The Boy can't go.  It's such a great experience, so this is exciting in and of itself.  Then I get to come home, clean up, nap and get ready to go out to my PARTY!  Well... gathering.  Uhmmm...festivities.  FUN!

BTW, I will be taking some major time over the next few days (as my birthday present to myself) to SCRAPBOOK!  So... perhaps you'll actually get to see something crafty on here for once.  Until then, think of me puffing away in the walk tomorrow morning, and then partying it up for my fortieth! 

See you on the flip side!

Oh, and for those of you who have been waiting oh-so patiently... here's the RED:
