In exactly one week, I turn 40. I am excited..and a little in shock...and a little surprised it happened so quickly...but mostly excited.
In this time of economic turmoil and holiday giving - let's just talk about me for a moment and what I want. Because I am turning 40, it will be ALL about me that day, and dammit, I am worth it...and I will throw a tantrum if I can't talk about me for a minute.
When thinking about what I want for my birthday - if you know me, you know I don't want a party or a lot of fuss. I don't want tacky crap that says "over the hill" or everything in black. Really, if you love me...please don't send me stuff like that...really. I am 40 and need to be selfish here. When I really think about it - I want to be a princess that day. Isn't that what my 6 and almost 4 year old girls want to be on their birthdays? Why not me? Why not a 40 year old.
I don't want to cook for anyone or serve anyone or clean-up after anyone. I want my coffee served to me - my wine glass always full and some hot guy serving me my dinner.
Maybe some fine champagne would be nice.....maybe I will buy a gown just to feel the part all day(maybe not)....
..and maybe even wear a tiara..or any old diamonds will do I suppose....
..mainly though - I plan on buying myself what I really want - A Louis. I've never owned a nice handbag-I am 40 and have been carrying the same bag for 5 years and really don't care...it has never been important to me. I think I now deserve a Louis though. Don't worry, it will be an investment - you know me and I will carry the gem daily for the next 20 years at least...and besides I am worth it.
