OK, nevermind that my birthday was actually two weeks ago, I am now officially 40. On Saturday night, we went out to dinner at Mad Fox Brewing Company. We were joined by my parents, Beer Geek’s dad and step-mom, and a small number of very close friends we’ve known forever. (I realized after the fact that all four of Beer Geek’s groomsmen were there!) The food was amazing, the beer was yummy, and my dad was the designated driver, so I had a great time. ;o) Meanwhile, six kids were back at our house with two babysitters having a huge playdate. AWESOME!
I think the look of fear on my friend’s face has to do
with the huge knife and the amount of beer I’d had…
The rest of the weekend has been quite nice as well. Saturday morning, my dad and I went for a five mile run. It didn’t feel great at the beginning and I was definitely having some breathing issues from the allergies, but we managed to run the two middle miles at 9:17 and 9:16. Sweet!
Sunday, I ended up not running, thereby ending my week with less than 20 miles. I’ve only done that a handful of times all year! Oh well, it was a crazy week and my mom and I were on a major organizing spree. We moved all of the outgrown clothes out of the boys’ dressers, packed away the stuff I’m keeping for Shoo, threw away a huge trash bag full of, well, trash, and packed up several boxes of books, Shoo’s outgrown clothing, and baby blankets to donate. Sadly, there’s still way too much stuff packed in my very small house…
Today, I get to go on a tour of a local water treatment plant and Tuesday I get to go on a tour of a local waste treatment plant. I know, I lead a glamorous life. Yes, I will be blogging all about it over at Metro DC Mom.

Happy Birthday! It sounds like you had an awesome birthday party filled with family, great friends and glorious beer:)
Organizing is good. Probably needed to do that more than you needed to run. Make space for more stuff to cram into the house. 🙂
Sounds like a wonderful weekend! Happy birthday, again!
Guess there is life away from running too 🙂 Happy Birthday again!! Sounds like a great celebration was had!!
Sounds like a great way to celebrate!
Nice weekend…my hubs has been stretching his 40th celebration out as well. I told him it is now officially over… 🙂
That sounds like the way to celebrate, if you ask me! Glad you had so much fun. But I'm sure the weekend will pale in comparison to your water treatment plant tours!
glamorous life and stay at home mom really don't actually go in the same sentence.Glad you had a fun night! You deserved it, and on a side note, you look amazing! (oh and my word verification is "Huggest", which I find ironic since I'm not a hugger. I guess that makes me an anti-huggest?)
YAY for you! Fabulous weekend!Love the cake!
wohooo for a wonderful birthday, you deserve it!
sounds ilke a great birthday celebration! you make 40 look so young!!!
Happy Birthday! That is my kind of celebrating ;)Wow, water and waste treatment plants – I'm oh so very jealous – LOL!And as your tax advisor (tee hee) hope you made a good detailed list of all the stuff you donated (and better yet took pics) – the IRS and states are cracking down on donations!
Mmm that cake looks good…and you're looking great! Definitely hard to believe you've turned 40!Have fun at the water treatment plant 🙂
Sounds like a fun celebration – Yahoo! And that cake does look good. I need to spend some time organizing. I have to be in the mood – otherwise it will take me forever. Need a rainy day and a vacation day combined into the same day. 😉
