Hit the Big 50

Guess what day it is!!!!
Its my 50th birthday today :)
Many have asked me how I felt about turning 50.
Funny thing is over the years I have been saying I'm going to be 50 soon, that I thought I turned 50 years ago, lol
But honestly, I love my age no matter what it is.
I think we should celebrate every birthday and every day in between.

My lovely daughters and husband put together a wonderful surprise party for me on Thursday.
I know my girls did all the work while my husband opened his wallet for them to work their creative magic.
I love that someone turned the 5 around as it looks like I'm turning 20, lol.
There is always one in the crowd.

My daughter Heather took me out for dinner and then we came home to this.
50 lawn signs made by my girls.

I love this idea...they set up a memory jar and a sign stating to write a memory of me with each person who attended, and those that couldn't attend, they emailed my daughters their memory.
I loved reading them at the end of the evening.

One of the gifts my friend Lynne, gave me was this Coke picture, she got everyone that was at the party to sign it :)

My Friend Sharon knew I loved this painted I wanted to win in a raffle at a crop we attended a few months ago.
I didn't win it and was so sad, as I loved it so much.
She contacted the artist and commissioned him to paint on for me.
I was so shocked and I cried when I opened it....good thing Ashley didn't have her camera for that.

But the best was this photo wall my daughters put together.
When I saw it, I started to cry!!
Seriously, how could I not love this...I love it so much I don't want to take it down or take it apart.

I have to say, my daughters are so caring, loving and thoughtful.
Just to prove this, on my 40th birthday (wow was that 10 years ago already) they made me a scrapbook album with the title "40 Things we love about You"
I cried with each turn of a page.
I tell them that I think their mission in life is to see how many times they can make me cry, lol.
But with them being happy tears, I'm good with it.

I hope you all have a very creative day.

  7. Your party was so awesoem & the girls put every little touch into it. I am so impressed that almost everything was cut by hand, even decoration not shown. Hope your birthday was amazing as you!!
