I am no longer 30 (something)

*Nov. 3rd  is my 40th Birthday, and I am NOT too happy about it. In fact, I have sobbed a few times this week. I even have to edit my profile now! I needed some shopping therapy-but had that nagging voice in my head reminding me about the 3 kids upcoming birthdays, Christmas and all the bills! We were lucky to  come across some great sales on our recent travels. I was surprised later to find out just what my hubby was willing to spend on me-he does try hard! and that makes me happy-but I am even happier to know that even in my frantic state I didn`t spend too much cuz the  feeling of the  intense guilt later is a killer!
 Simple things make me happy.
 We found some great stuff at a barn/garage sale an older man was having. and BOY! did he have some GREAT stuff! unfortunately he knew it and it showed on his prices! :/
 I got myself a new rolling pin-just in case someone angers me on my 40th!......JOKE!
 Found these great SWEATER MUGS at none other than.........Dollarama!!
 I sat looking at these today-then took a peek at pinterest and now have a GREAT idea for Christmas/holiday gifts for teachers! (will post about that next month!)
I enjoyed a nice cup of hot cocoa in my new sweater mug last night and tonight I will .................. 
(no this is not me but) I will be having my last HOT BATH of my 30's tonight! I figure it's a relaxing way to reminisce on all the wonderful things that  my 30's brought me. (now hopefully the kids go to bed or are at least QUIET! I will try to be relaxed about it and look positively into this  new beginning but I know I will shed MANY tears throughout 'MY' day!

  1. I hope you have a very happy birthday!! I was so upset about turning 40, but some very sweet friends of mine made me feel so special on my birthday that it ended up being a wonderful day. I hope 40 is your best year yet!!

  3. Happy happy day to you.

    I turned 44 in June! I am just thankful to still feel young and don't think I look too very old. It is hard for me to believe that I am mid-40's.

    Love your little mug sweaters. I would love to find some of those around here. Such fun and so cute.

    Blessings, Amy

    1. Thank you SO much Amy! I survived it and have to admit it wasn't as bad as I thought! The week leading up to it had me a little discouraged but all is well now! And judging from your picture I sure didnt think you were even IN your 40's!~ Mel ;)

  7. I just found your sweet blog today, courtesy of Brenda at Cozy Little House. I saw that you recently turned 40- so did I (on October 26th). I hope you are adjusting to your new age bracket. My husband, a wise older man at 44, says being in his 40s is fabulous and he is looking forward to whatever comes next. I am choosing to believe him and celebrate a new decade! So belated Happy Birthday, Melanie!! May you have many more.
