The Best Birthday Party Ever

We talked last week about my turning forty.  Ouch.  Friday was my big dance party weekend.  We had SOOOOOOOO much fun.  Here are a few of my favorite pics and some of the best quotes of the evening....

We had never been to this particular dance club.  It opened at 9 p.m. and stayed open until 2 a.m. so we decided to get there when it opened to make sure we could get a table.  When we pulled in there was one other car.  My sister says, "I'm not sure we are going to get a table."

After entering the totally dead club, my friend R orders a beer and it comes in the tiniest glass I've ever seen, she said, "Um...can I get another one cause I'm going to finish this in two sips."

This club claims to play all the hits of the 80s, 90s and today.  Even though the place was near dead, when they played "Push it" my sister and I were dancing.

It's amazing how once you start the party others will follow.  Including Richard - the older gentleman dancing with my sister.  He just thought our group was so  sweet.  Just look at my laughter.

When life gives you lemons, ask for tequila and salt.  R, my sister and me toasting a great time and good friends.

My friend, A decided that a toast was a great idea and then she dragged R to the dance floor to request Poor Some Sugar on Me.  Another great quote, "Um...the DJ has never heard of Def Leppard."  Seriously???

My friend, R, was harassed most of the evening due to her unique hairstyle.  Please note: people wearing their hair in a Mohawk a) don't want to give you beauty tips, b) explain in detail how they sprayed it up or c) want you to touch their hair.  Favorite quote:  "I'm like a zoo animal.  Do you touch the zoo animals? Please look but don't touch."

We had an awesome time and in all honesty I don't really feel any older than I did last year. I did learn that I have some awesome friends and a sister that never ceases to make me laugh.

You are one lucky/blessed lady. Friends are the family we choose, and it looks like you chose some great ones :)

Looks like a really great time! I find that even at my old age of 56 I don't feel like I'm getting older. I guess I just don't know how I'm supposed to feel at this age, but somehow I thought I'd feel a lot older than I do. Does that make sense? Sure hope so.
Glad you had a wonderful 40th!

Happy birthday, you young pipsqueak!!! What a great party! Is that R's natural hair color? Did any of your drinks come with straws or were they banned (you know, like at the zoo)? Tell R I love her hair and that, if I had any, I'd do the same thing! You DO realize, don't you, that you're now OVER 40?
