Yes it's true, I can't deny it any longer...I am now forty years old. :( It wasn't too painful but it wasn't fun either. My birthday was last Thursday. I took the day off of work so I could just be by myself and do whatever I wanted. I slept in, went out to lunch, and went shopping. Pretty good day in my book! Then in the evening my husband and kids took me out to dinner and back home for cake. My husband and daughter made this cake for me and they whole heartily agree that it's the ugliest cake they've ever seen. I told them that's ok because it was very appropriate for the ugly number 40 birthday. It tasted good though!
