In 2 weeks I'm turning 40, looking for ideas???

On June 22, I will be hitting the big 4-0. Unlike friends that hit the same milestone, I am excited. We are trying to decide how to celebrate. We are having dinner with the kids the day before... it falls on a Tuesday, not sure if hubby and I want to do something just the 2 of us since we haven't had time alone in the 7 years we have been together or should we celebrate with friends??? Any ideas?? Grandma and Grandpa are taking the kids overnight.... I want to do something memorable but the catch is, I am wheelchair bound due to a severe auto accident three years ago. Please help me with ideas..... Thank you so much!!!!

  • Congratulations and happy birthday!
    I enjoyed turning 40, too! :)

    Gosh, I'm such a homebody that I don't really have any ideas. It should be your husband asking for advice of what to do for
    Perhaps you two can take a nice drive someplace away from the city and homes, enjoy stargazing (he can bring a camp chair) while you both hold hands, bring a small evening snack, and just spend time with each other as you contemplate on the next 40 years ahead of you filled with so many blessings and much happiness.

    I wish you all the best!

  • Go to the beach (it's summer, for some reason I keep thinking about the beach, haha), get a facial, a spa day, I will be living it up on my 40th!

  • The beach would be heavenly but my wheelchair is not sand friendly......

  • Find a sitter for the kids over night and host an adults-only grill out and then enjoy some alone time with your husband after the guests leave.

  • Relax. Go to the mountains. Sit in a porch chair and just experience nature around you. Read a good book.


    Have a huge cook out, sing kareoke and get slammed drunk.

    Both are fun.
