I AM EMBRACING 40

On March 14, 2009 I gave myself a Hollywood theme 40th Birthday party. When I say that the party was the party of the year it truly was. I had been planning the party since November 2008 and thought that March 14, 2009 would never make it here. But all the sweat and drama I had it was worth every bit of it.

I had a red carpet event that was hosted by my sister and one of my best friends. The video man was my husband and the video is just completely hilarious. I had my own camera crew there and they took over 600 pictures of the event. I wore a black short cocktail dress with feathers on the bottom from Fredericks of Hollywood. One of my best friends bought the dress and said this is what I had to wear. The dress was a perfect fit with my 4 inch heels to go along with the dress. I made my grand entrance to Hollywood Swinging by Kool And The Gang and the night was full of dancing.

On March 18, 2009 I turned 40 and you better believe that I am embracing it and beliving life only gets better from here.

I asked myself will I give myself another party before I turn 50 and I said I doubt it. But I don't know what I will do at 50 to top this party at 40.

Remember to embrace life because life is to short.

Hey, you've caught up with me. I must admitt that I was not that happy to reach 40, but I am now embracing it too. 40 is really just a number!
