Well, I turned 40 six years ago! For me it wasn't anything special to celebrate...just another birthday. But...at the same time it was special because we got married on my BD which also happened to be my 40th so that took precendence. It was just a simple at home wedding with a short trip to Branson, MO. I love Branson so that was fine with me-DH had never been. I am not one for flying so any place overseas is out for me!
Even if I hadn't married on my 40th, I don't think I would have done anything special. Those big BD's aren't so big for me so would have been dinner out and cake later. Now...when I turn 50 I do have a treat planned for myself...I plan on having a facelift!
Seriously...I don't think I look old for my age, at least people say otherwise...but I want to look my best for the age I am.
Whatever you do...I hope it is a special 40th for you!
