Not so bad

So, it's true.

I've been road-testing 40 since January and I guess it's not so bad.

No, I wasn't in the best shape of my life (no rock hard abs....yet!). 

No, I didn't get to go on an incredible trip (yet, I hope!).

But, I did get....

sweet cards, calls, and emails.
upgraded to a Blackberry.
a surprise dinner with friends and night out with my girl friends.

It may seem silly to even talk about it now, but this was one of the many posts that I had started (or at least labeled) and I really don't like leaving things undone.

I can't believe that I am even sharing these pictures.  With B at 8 months old, I was kinda feeling my yuckiest.  You know when you just feel, face, and the body issues that we won't even discuss!  But the point is not how I think I look.  The point is what good friends I have, so I am letting go of my self-conscious issues for the moment!

Please keep in mind that we are good girls, ages 30's to 40's, who are acting way sillier than the amount of adult beverages it may look like we consumed!  I promise you, we are usually way more boring than this!  :)

I am just hoping that I still have friends after these pictures go public!  Love y'all!!

Laurie & Jenn

While you might think this picture is all about me, I assure you that I just wanted to share the experience occuring behind me at that moment.  I found it both hysterical and disturbing all at the same time.

Because how can I NOT share the Billy Idol look-a-like contest!  You win Heather!

We laugh like this even when we aren't being silly girls on the dance floor!

Me, Heather, Rachel, Shannon, Laurie, Jennifer (and baby E!)

Thanks for another good memory girls!

And thanks to my husband for initiating the surprise planning and for managing the kids while I went out with the girls.
