For DH's 40th my SIL had attempted to have our yard flocked with flamingos. I say attempted because we are on a cul de sac where house numbers are a little skewed and they ended up flocking our neighbor's yard, which made it even funnier. His birthday is in February and fell on Super Bowl Weekend. We had a big Super Bowl party at our house that we both spent in a daze because I had found out that morning that I was pregnant. I don't remember much other than trying to ditch drinks that were given to me without anyone noticing.
My 40th was a year ago and it was also a blur. My mom had just been diagnosed with cancer and at the time it looked like she had only weeks to live (she is fine) so once again I spent a milestone birthday in a fog. We ended up going to Busch Gardens I think.
So I hope I will finally be able to do something big for my 45th.
