I did!!  I rented out a nightclub and had my “Fabulous and 40” Birthday Party!! Fabulous and 40 was actually my theme!!

That’s my sister, my Grandmother, Me, and My Mom! My birthday is January 14th, but I had my party on the 19th.  Tiffany blue and silver were my colors, and we partied all night!!  When I sent out my invitations, they read “Lawdy, Lawdy, The Diva’s 40!!”

I partied ALL NIGHT LONG!!

    • Shame on him Teeky!!  Mine wasn’t a surprise, but I DID kinda expect “someone” to throw me a party, but the closer it got (6 months), I started dropping hints and was questioning family if I was gonna have a party.  Didn’t seem like anyone was planning anything for me, so I did it for myself!!  I hadn’t had a party since I turned sweet 16, so I owed it to myself!!  My mom and sister helped with the food, a good friend d.j.’d for me, and we had a blast!!

    • Fxydiva, that looked like a great Fabulous and 40 party.
      Truth ,I was a little depressed last year, but my husband and my youngest took me out for birthday dinner. it was nice spending time with my son,he stayed and watched movies with me after doug had to go to work.
      Boring I know but nice.

      Bella

    • I was teaching school when I turned 40 and another teacher was turning 50 a few days before...so we celebrated our milestone birthdays together.  Our co-workers gave us “old” gifts....a cane...old lady clothes...and we put them all on and laughed and laughed.  

      No big parties for me but I embraced 40 and really enjoyed my day.  

      Now when I turn 50...I’m going on a trip!!

    • It was hard turning 40 for me.  I had no problem turning 30.  I thought it was a great milestone, but turning 40 was tough.  So many things going wrong for me at that time of my life.  The only time in my life I’ve looked back and had regrets was when I turned 40.  But then I turned 41 and things turned around for me.  Hopefully, I’ll be able to celebrate 50 in a BIG way.

    • I love these photos! I see mischief on each and every face. I know you had a really wonderful time!

      And, I just watched the video of your daughter getting her car keys. wrapping them up in layers of tissue paper was brilliant. It added to the suspense. Her reaction was priceless. And, Tiffany? Wow! It’s great you got in on video. She’ll be able to enjoy that moment over and over again.

    • All of my family lives in another state. So, my mom, and 2 of my aunts started sending b-day cards 40 day in advance. So, for 40 days until my b-day I received 3 cards every day.
      OMG, there were so many cards. I tied ribbon across my living room ceiling and zig zaged it with cards.
      They were everywhere.
