Had a party at the bar we frequented at the time. Your party sounds fun! I was a pirate wench for Halloween a few years back.

That sounds like a fun theme for your special day. I hope you have fun with it.

My 40th? Not to be mentioned in polite company! I had a sh*tty day, DH spent what was supposed to be set aside for our family trip to celebrate it on something for his hobby (which has been used about 6 times in the 13 years since then) and told me three weeks before my birthday that we 'couldn't afford' the trip as a result. He then spent most of his day gossiping with a friend when he went to pick up his New Toy (yes, he actually collected it ON my birthday, just to rub salt into the wound).. He got annoyed with me when he FINALLY got home around 7 pm and found the kids nearly finished with dinner (it was a Saturday) because he had decided he would 'take me out to celebrate' and couldn't believe I didn't wait for him to get home to announce that. The kids were 7 and 8 and hungry - of course I got food for them! It wasn't their fault that Daddy was being a meathead. We eventually did go out to dinner about a week later when all tempers had simmered down!

I  can't remember,,... it was so long ago.. lol. That was either the year the dh (now exdh) had a party for me at  local restuarant, or the year we were on vacation and we all went to Medieval Times.

My SIL had a cake and candy for me. Done in the whole message using candy bars in place of certain words and bowls of suckers with 40 Sucks, gum with 40 Blows and one other, IDR at the moment. Oh! Kisses with 40 can kiss my ass.

That is so much fun - enjoy!  Usually I am on vacation around my birthday, but do not recall where I was for my 40th.  I guess it must have been a good one LOL

Had a dinner with my girls and then my sisters for drinks. Wow, just to think that was 11 years ago.
