so turning 40 wasn't so bad after all! Terry and my sister were in ka-hoots for months planning a surprise party for me. who knew so many people could keep a secret! the only part of the whole plan that i found to be somewhat strange was the fact that my dad and mom had not called to wish me a happy birthday. they're usually the first ones on the phone!
as far as i knew terry and the girls were taking me out to dinner. we get to the restaurant and my family (except for my brother and his family) were there to surprise me. what a great gift!
love you guys! thanks for everything! it will definitely be a birthday to remember and treasure.
