Last night one of my very, very good friends turned 40.  She organized a party with close friends at a local night club.  It was FABULOUS!!!! I don’t particularly enjoy the night club scene anymore but I tell you last night was GREAT...most of the crowd were bonafide GROWN-UP’s!  

The DJ played songs from the 80’s , 90’s and ALL the smash club hits.  I thought I was going to lose my mind over the music that was playing.  Every song brought back a memory of family reunions, high school, college, former relationships, times of being in-love, falling out of love or even times when I was looking for a love!

My girlfriend had the VIP section decorated so beautifully.  She made sure that this party space was a reflection of the things that she liked.  There were red and black balloons and decorations.  Classy table coverings and a FANTASTIC FANCY 40 birthday cake. She also had great food, wonderful girlfriends, handsome male guests, a beautiful cake and bottles of champagne flowing.  This was a GROWN FOLKS party.

I noticed that at a grown folks party people have finally reached the point in life where they are comfortable in their own skin.  The women and men danced to their favorite songs, recalled life memories aloud, and laughed among friends.  There is absolutely something special about being 40!  I LOVE IT!!  

I was so inspired by my friend’s party that I have decided to organize a Bluelights in the Basement party at my home in a few weeks.  I need a good party among friends.   Music, food, and dance can be a great combination for having a good time and relieving stress!!

There is nothing like having a good ole’ GROWN FOLKS party..... cuz’ GROWN FOLKS parties don’t stop!

    • LOL sounds wonderful LaTosha, and you‘re right grown folk parties never stop! I love giving parties I used to do it all the time when I lived in my home and can’t wait for the purchase of my next home just to regain my self to do this very thing again. I am an entertainer and I love to entertain family and close friends, I hear ya about the club thing wow I haven’t been to a club in I know well over 30 years, and from what I’ve heard I’m not missing much except for all the drama of the wanna be Divas, running after other woman’s men I see the game hasn’t changed just the player’s lol, well I’m happy to hear you had a wonderful time and that your friend is enjoying her new found age of 40. I remember when I turned 40 it was a wonderful time for me as wel las when I turned 50 last year, I do plan on doing something special this year as I cross over 50 into 51 seeing I didn’t have my BIG 50th shabang like I wanted to but I’m thinking of a classy dinner party here with a few close friends and family and just deck the place out Neicy style lol.

    • La Tosha,

      It sounds like a GREAT time!  I love music from that time era so much especially the 80s.  Now I have Satellite Radio and it makes my long commute so much more bearable with the 80s station and the 90s station.

      When I turned 40 last year, I had a small get-together at my house, a friend of mine wrote in my card, “Welcome to the 40s club...it’s a good place to be in life.”  She’s right!

      Diane
