Life Begins at 40!

#40th #Birthday {Life Begins at 40! Silly #Party Theme}

Do you ever feel like you’re forgetting something?  I do.  A lot.

In addition to Valentine’s Day, we had company from out of town, and it was my hubby’s b-day.  While he was out running errands, someone said, “Hey, is Steve turning 40 today?”

Oh, my goodness!  Yes!  I totally forgot the milestone. We quickly brainstormed and came up with a clever theme for an important day.  No gloom and doom for us.  Instead of “Over the Hill” — which he is definitely not  — we went with “Life Begins at 40!”

To go with the “life begins”–why not a baby theme?  A bottle of Gatorade got a baby bottle top, some yellow balloons got a makeover, and we were ready to go.  I know.  Silly, but it made for a great and cheerful 40th b-day theme!  I guess I could have wrapped up a package of Depends, but maybe that would have been a little too much!

Have you ever tried to take a picture of balloons outside on a windy day?  Forget about it.  It’s impossible!

Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by.

    Stopping by from a linking party because I’m turning 40 next month. EEK! I like the idea that “life begins at 40” much better than being “over the hill!”
