I survived turning 40!

Thank you to everyone who has left comments here, on Facebook, emails, or phone calls wishing me a very Happy Birthday! I have to say this year was so much better than last. But being totally honest, I would be lying if I didn't admit that last summer has been on my mind. I have to say though, Hubbie, my Munchkins, Sister, Mother, very dear Friends, and all of you out there in blogverse made this birthday a real good time.

First, although I didn't reach my initial weight goal by my birthday, I have lost 50 pounds. I've been holding there for a month or so. It's been hard this summer with the Munchkins home and relaxing and having fun. Ice cream, frozen drinks, backyard barbeque, all yummy tempting things that have called my name. The good thing is that I've been good to hop back on the wagon and continue my exercising. I'll just kept working on it! But I've got to say I'm very happy with the results so far.

Second, if you normally read my blog in your reader, visit my blog in person. I've changed my header and it is one of my most favorite photos I've ever taken.

Third, I know I promised pictures of my sewing progress, but instead of a photo shoot I sewed some more. I PROMISE (cross my heart) to post pictures today or tomorrow. It's overcast here in Hotlanta so lighting is not ideal.

And finally, to revisit turning 40.....SO EXCITED! My best friend told me that I'm officially a Cougar (rowrrr!). I read that I now have the license to act inappropriately, say what I want, and wear whatever I thinks looks good on me. Mainly, to loosely quote Scarlett O'Hara, "I can finally tell all those people that I've wanted to, to go to Hell." So if you think you're on that list, watch out.
