40 on the 40


Today is my big day...I am FORTY years old! 
(That is the strangest thing to type!)

I had a very special birthday party this weekend.  I went to my very first Buffalo Bills game!


Big birthdays need big venues, hee! 

It was a balmy 52 degree-ish in Orchard Park at Ralph Wilson Stadium.  That's practically summer weather in Buffalo, not a snowflake in sight.  We still bundled up just in case...

That's me, Maureen, Becky (my niece), and Terri...

My husband Jason (with his winter beard, ack!), my nephew Scott, Buck, and my nephew-in-law Aaron!



Did I mention that the Bills lost 23-17?  It's their 5th loss in a row.  They started off the season so well, but things have taken a turn for the worst.  If you live in upstate NY, it's your duty to remain loyal...

I had high hopes :)


I saw an interview with country star Faith Hill on TV a month or so ago. 
She said she was in her 40's and fierce
If the Buffalo Bills and I start to think that way...it's going to be quite a 2012 :)!

Happy Birthday, Kelly. And welcome to the best decade of your life! Now I must be off to think just what would be the right card for such a festive occasion.

Happy birthday you gorgeous old bag! (Says she...an older bag). ;-) Comiserations about the game though. It looks like you had a fun time despite the outcome. Ooh...5 in a row! Ouch! I have thoroughly enjoyed your post. But how come, no matter how much I squint, that jacket's not looking very red? Hehee. Congrats to your fierce self! Hugs.

Jen, if you look under my coat, you'll see a navy blue fleece vest. Does that count as spirit wear? Hee...

Happy Birthday! Strangely enough, as much as I dreaded the 4-0, it is kinda feeling like my "best" decade! :0)

Hauoli la hanau! (That's "Happy Birthday" in Hawaiian:) And welcome to the 40's club! I have to agree with the other ladies that 40+ is FUN!

I love your pics from the game! You all look like you're having a BLAST! Hope the rest of your birthday week continues along the same lines:)

Happy Belated Birthday Kelly! I spent MANY Sunday afternoons freezing my butt off at Rich Stadium! I only lived 10 miles away from there! Must be due to global warming because I remember the windchill being well below 0 and it snowing like there was no tomorrow!!! Happy you had a wonderful time! :)
