Have I told you that my husband and my good buddies all went together to throw me a cool party. This was a MExican fiesta.
and of course, my favorite cake maker, Kelly, made this awesome cake for me! She is making one for my Gabbi Girl for this coming weekend! ALREADY?! Yep! JinJin was present for the big blowout.
and we all admired the decorations all around Paula's house. (and her three children's portraits, I might add!)
Cindy Lou Who put together all the arrangements in a very big and vivid fashion. She is our resident florist. Actually, she is not a florist. She is just our talented friend who is very good with arrangement of flowers.
We had a taco/nacho bar with guac, sour cream, salsa, chicken and beef. This is my present lapband meal of choice!! My best friends, of course, knew this!
And speaking of my best friends. Here they are!
I LOVE being 40. It is so much more of a celebration than 36, 37, 38, or 39 was! I even got PRESENTS!!
Jin gave me the frame above that is going to be so dang cute in my babies' new bathroom!
And this is a Tiger Chardonnay. Shall we pop the top!?
Jin also gave me this super sweet vase. It was made by an artist and came from one of my favorite places to shop, Folette Pottery!
But this has to be my BEST gift! It was from the hubby and was a TOTAL SURPRISE! The dudes just hung out, as usual, being cool and all!
Then there were those few who mingled girls and boys!
Emma had a big time with the cups that were used for my big Mexican fiesta. Then, when she was being funny and tossed her pillow across the room and knocked her own creation over! She pouted and pouted and pouted!
My little buddy, Emma Lou and Cindy's daughter, Angel Grace, decided I needed a Queen Bee (although I think it is a Queen ANT!) for my garden.
These four women are all in the 40 Club and all were born in 1969 and all graduated from high school in 1987... together!
Can you say 40 and FABULOUS?!
Don't know why I couldn't move this picture. It is another cute example of my buddy, Breanna's creative party touches! She also did the big pompoms on the table!
