I will be 39 for one more month! I can’t believe I am going to be 40! Yikes! I am so excited! It’s not a huge birthday like when I turned 16 (got my drivers licence), 19 (age of majority and able to drink), 25 (the dreaded quarter century), or even 30 ( don’t even remember turning 30!)! And it’s not as big as turning 50 (HALF A CENTURY!) will be. But for some reason, this birthday seems HUGE!
It feels like a birthday that requires a HUGE party! That being said, I’m not much of a HUGE party kind of a person. So I have been trying to figure out what to do. If I were at all brave, I would try what a fellow blogger did for her 29th birthday, and take a Flying Trapeze Class… BUUTTTtt…I’m not that brave! Not only that, I’m terrified of heights so anything HIGH up is out of the question..hahaha….
I don’t drink anymore, so clubbing isn’t an option. There is no circus in town so can’t do that, and I am MILES away from the nearest ocean front cabin so that can’t happen either. I had thought about having some friends join me for an overnight stay at a spa/hotel in Moose Jaw and hitting up the casino, having some fine supper and then splashing around in a mineral pool…but the hotel didn’t have any rooms available for the affordable package deal they advertised. NEXT!
Another thought was to have a mani/pedi treatment at a local spa with some girlfriends where we could bring in food and beverages and relax. Well I won a package from the local radio that included a mani/pedi, waxing, hair cut/color and blow out and a few other treats on Friday so I guess that’s out. (So excited to have won though! Happy Birthday to me!)
An idea I am currently working on is to have a Paint Splatter Party at 4Cats art studio. They have a studio beside my office. I’m waiting to hear back from them to see if this will be an option. Basically its you and your friends in a room throwing pain at a canvas that the birthday kid gets to keep (it’s 6foot by 3foot canvas) and then everyone works on their own 18″x24″ canvas to take home. I think it would be a blast!!!
At the moment they don’t have any openings in June but they do have a few in July so my 40th birthday celebrations may be a little late but I’m ok with that! This would be totally worth the wait! 🙂
What kinds of fun things have you done for birthdays? I’d love to know! I’d also love ideas in case this art day doesn’t work out…hahahaha…. Have a great week folks!
