Happy Numeral 40!

I am now 40 years old. People have finally - finally - stopped thinking I'm in high school. They are still shocked if they find out I am old enough to legally drink. Also, they often think I'm younger than them and when I throw out a, "I'm old enough to be your mom!" I get met by disagreement. Look, kid, I know how old I am and I could have birthed you! I guess my point is, damn, now that I'm 40 do you think people will start to think I am like 25 at least?!

But yes, today is my birthday! And the only day this week I don't have to put on a bra, so happy birthday to me. I also shucked my calorie count and ate a bunch of trash & chocolate today. And I have a package from [personal profile] ranua waiting to be opened with dinner tonight. Last weekend I went to Motor City Comic Con & this weekend I'm off to Chicago - though I do have to have a dental procedure done tomorrow, so birthday week is not *all* roses. But overall, not a bad Number 40.

As usual, here are some pics of wee!me for my birthday. I am told I wore those cowboy boots for 3 weeks straight. I wouldn't even take them off to sleep. Mom would sneak in my room after I fell asleep and pry them off me, lol. In the other pic, not sure if you can tell, but I am wearing a Care Bear shirt. I freaking loved the Care Bears! And in the last one, wow, how 70s & retro. We have about two years of photos from that era, of all of us kids, with the silhouette feature going on.

I'd like to do a quick shoutout to all the people, doctors, peeps in my life when I was younger, who said I would never make it to 30. Here's a double middle finger for all of you! Whoohoo to Number 40!

As for the rest of you lovelies, I hope all of your May 23rd days were wonderful!
