40 never felt so fabulous...

O.K. Maybe its because I'm not quite 40 yet! But, in February I got to go to Scottsdale, Arizona with 3 of my best friends to celebrate THEIR 40th birthdays! 2012 seems to be the year of the 40th birthday for many of my friends and well, as the supportive friend that I am, I just couldn't let them celebrate alone now, could I???
We did plenty of pampering with pedicures, manicures, massages, and facials.
And we did plenty of shopping...
And plenty of laughing and goofing off..
And searching for just the right cactus for a photo opp...
And we even did plenty of exercise (running by the canal and climbing Camelback Mountain...)
And, of course, plenty of eating, too!
While carb loading at the sugar bowl, I was able to meet up with Nellie and her three daughters! Nellie is my foster sister that I grew up with for about 8 years. I hadn't seen her since my wedding.
And here I am with little Tirsa.
Since this trip, I have done plenty of pondering on how very blessed I am to have such amazing friends! Lucky, lucky me!!!

I'm not sure I can ever fully express how special that trip was for me. I, too, feel so blessed! Oh, and I really like the idea of calling ice cream consumption at the Sugar Bowl carb loading! :)

Loved the update. So wonderful to see Nellie and her pretty, sweet, daughters. How fun that she named one Tirsa, such a pretty name for two pretty girls. love you, aunt linda
