41? Really?

Well it’s here once again. One day this week, I’ll be turning 41. I’ll be “officially” IN my 40’s. I’m not sure how I feel about it and I’m not sure it really matters since I can’t do anything about it.

I definitely have more grays than last year and if I wanted to admit it, I probably have a few more lbs. as well.

Most of you who have followed my blog for a period of time, know that I like this week. I use my birthday as an excuse for many things. Things like, “I really don’t feel like vacuuming. It is my birthday week you know.” or “Dear daughter, will you give me a foot massage? I am your mother and it is my birthday and I’m getting old and so are my feet.”

But what I’ve really enjoyed is the random stuff I’ve been getting in the mail.

The other day I got a coupon from Beef  O’ Brady’s. I had never been to Beef O’ Brady’s so I’m not sure how they knew I even existed. But by golly it’s a free meal and I’m going to get it.


So my super duper Hubbalicious and I went during the off hours. It was perfect. There were only a handful of people in there.

I got the fish tacos. They were SO good!




My hubby got the same thing as I did. We do that a lot. We like the same things and neither one of us likes to branch out to far. LOL!


Our total bill was only $8.45. Woot! Woot!

Stay tuned for more birthday week fun.
