Follow Friday 40 and Over!!

Thank you all for the wonderful birthday wishes!!!  It really meant a lot to me!  I had a great day!  My co-worker got me a cake and 2 nice cards.  When I got home Joe and the boys were waiting with presents!  Then apparently Joe had already fed the boys and had dinner all planned for just the 2 of us!  He went and bought my favorite salad, steamed shrimp and made Pomegranate Martinis!  Then later they had birthday cake for me!  It was all very nice and all the effort Joe put into making it special meant so much to me!  This is a picture Joe took...I changed into my comfy sweats when I got home from work!
