A Shopaholic Looks At Forty!

Pink Cake Box Cake


Happy Thursday! Before you ask, no that isn't my birthday cake! I wish it was - isn't it just fabulous? Beach and Buffet style, I love it! :-)

Today is my 40th birthday. Even I can't believe it's here. There are so many things I wanted to do - planned to do - before I turned 40. Some of these things I have accomplished, others I haven't. I am willing to admit it - I love my birthday. I'm a LEO, after all; and a total diva about the day. This year feels different, I guess because I'm 40. Wow. I look at young people and think, "I'm not much older than them.....am I"? But of course, I am!

However, I plan to enjoy the day and not focus on "the number". It really doesn't matter anyway, does it? At the end of the day...it's just a number.

The DH is home today to celebrate with me. I'm getting my hair done, and we're having a wonderful dinner out tonight. Let the fun begin! 

p.s. Don't forget to tune in tomorrow - another new giveaway will be posted, and we have several more coming. Be sure to enter the giveaways that are still running, and check the Shopaholic Facebook page daily for winner announcements.

  2. I hope you have a wonderful Birthday. You are a fabulous looking forty year old. I am a couple of years older than you... I love my 40s so far... my mother said her 40s were her best. My husband commented that I am now actually closer to 60 than 20 - Although not by much. (YEOWCH!)But I feel closer to 20!

    Love that cake.... HAPPY BIRTHDAY LORI! XOXOX

  4. Happy Birthday, Lori! Thanks to you and your great style, my orange Caroline Grace Flora Earrings are on their way to me. I loved when you wore them with the blue Lilly dress, that I had to have them.

    That's so sweet of DH to stay home with you today. Hope y'all have such a great time. Can't wait to see what you pick to wear for dinner. :)

  15. Happy Birthday Lori! Remember, you are only as old as you feel. I often say I am old enough to know better, but young enough not to care!

    LOVE that cake. My dear Man O Mine will be turning 40 before too long, and I am already planning a Pirate looks at Forty Party for him ;)
