Just in case you were wondering, this is what 40 looks like…
That’s right! TWO HOT MAMAS IN A HOT TUB!
(okay, one of us still has a couple years to go, but we’re getting a pat on the back anyway…)
And by the way, it was a reeeaaalllyyy hot tub. We had to shovel snow in it to cool it down. A lot of snow. I wish I could say it was our hotness that raised the temperature, but I think it was just messed way up. 😐
Anyway, Kim‘s official 40th birthday weekend at Lake Tahoe was perfection. Just what a bunch of overworked, overachieving, over-the-hill (or about to be) people needed. Family (Steve and the kids flew out from Michigan to join us), an amazing natural setting, food, bubbles (the kind you drink, for grownups and kids, AND the kind you soak in!), casinos (also for grownups and kids!), and a fabulous pad to call home for three days.
When we showed up in Tahoe, I was desperate to get away from work and the new cavalcade of stress raining down on me there. It was a wee bit uncanny to walk into the house and see… well… WORK, literally, hanging on the wall:
But by the time we left on Sunday, after soaking in the hot tub and eating too much sushi and drinking too much champagne and sitting on too many whoopie cushions, I was once again reminded about the important things in life.
They look like this:
Happy 40th, Kim! Here’s to 40 more, and being old and gray in the hot tub together some day…
