I Am Closer to 40

I am closer to 40 than I am to 30.  There. I said it...As of this past Friday, I am 36.  You know what?  It really hasn't bothered me like I thought it would. =)
Carter informed me, in the car on Friday, that I can now run for President because I am "older than 35." Thanks for the reminder. 

I woke up Friday to a birthday card from Ryan on my bathroom sink, and this is what was inside:
I have wanted laser hair removal for a long time but haven't mentioned it in forever! I guess he was listening!! I can't wait!  Love that man!!


My students were so sweet to me all day, showering me with precious handmade cards, Dr. Peppers, sour gummy worms (my favorites) and Barnes and Noble gift cards! 

How cute is this!
I teach a GT (Gifted & Talented) cluster class, and a few of them wrote this poem for me! Love my students!
We went to dinner with my parents on Friday night...How cute are they!
Preston...handsome boy. =)
Carter and Trysten diligently completing the word search on the kid's menu!
Ryan surprised me with another gift!
A five-star terry robe from red ENVELOPE!!!
Another item I have always wanted and briefly mentioned on our vacation in Florida!

My sweet mother has also been listening to me because she gave me some Kinerase facial cream for my ever encroaching SUN SPOTS!! If you have never heard of this stuff, google it! It's awesome!  This is the type of gift you want in your LATE thirties!

Ed and Carol sent me a package from New York including, among other things, an animal print cheese knife set and a bikini bag!  Carol always knows what I like!

I went shopping on Saturday to spend some of my birthday money and bought a few tassels at Hemispheres!  Ummm...I heart tassels...

Between Facebook, my students, family, and emails from my OB/GYN and The Plastic Surgery Center of Dallas, I received more birthday love than ever!
Cheers to 4 years left until 40!!!

Sounds like a good birthday!

I have never had a fear of aging. Life is so good. Who doesn't want more of it?!

Glad you're looking forward to the rest!

Belated Happy Birthday. I saw that you are following my blog. Thanks so much. I am following yours, too. Your family is so cute. When I got married I also married a man with a four year old son. I was nineteen and married into an automatic family. When you love somebody you take the whole package and we just celebrated our 35th anniversary on the 22nd. We have two grown kids or our own. I would do it all over again with the same great guy.
