Here come the 40's....

Welcome to the season of 40th celebrations!  Woo-Hoo!  They say that the 40's are the new 30's, right?? Although I am a few years away, some of those near and dear to me are starting to lead the way.  I can't say I am thrilled about turning 40, but any reason to all get together and do something fun, I guess I'm all for!

This past weekend the lucky man was our b/f/f Robert John aka Aaaaarrrrrgg!!  When I tell you we have been through some stuff with this boy, I mean STUFF!  Seriously, I could write a book!  You name it... crisis, calm, fun, crazy... we've been in it together!  LOVE. HIM.

We decided on a staycation for the big event...  Believe it or not staycation is in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary!  :a vacation spent at home or nearby.  Susan, RJ's wife, chose an adorable hotel AVIA in The Woodlands (about 40 minutes away from Houston.)  It's on an adorable little street with tons of cute shops and restaurants!  (Market Street)  So we had the feel of being on vacation without any of the traveling misery...

As with any good vacation, it all starts at the pool!

We probably could have stayed by the pool all night, we were having so much fun, but we had dinner reservations and a celebration to get on with!

Us again...
(Not a huge fan of Cajun Shrimp on the fingernails.)

Waiting for the Zimmers to come down...

Dinner was at Uni Sushi and was AWEsome!  If you live close by you have to try it!

The Guys Celebrating with Cold Sake (ick!)

So when 8 incredibly close, incredibly silly friends who don't get to spend enough time with each other get together without kids, things can get cray-cray!  

Happy 40th!

Bed Jumps



We had big plans to be out all night closing down the clubs but with the sun and drinks by the pool all day topped with a huge dinner, after a great attempt to party, we were back at the hotel in bed by 1!  I guess we are getting old after all.... HA!!

Thank you to Nonna for watching the babies!!!!
