Fabulous Fun for All...

(Wish I had a better picture. We would have never gone out looking like this)
We were irresponsible, irrespectable (yes I know this isn’t a real word), and irresistible!

This became our catch phrase one night when Heidi’s Aunt told us, “Respectable people do not leave the house to go out at 11 pm. Respectable people come home at 11 pm.”

“Well we’re irresponsible, irrespectable and irresistible!” We laughed (to ourselves, not to her. We didn’t have a death wish) as we headed out the door, Devil House bound (as in ASU Sun Devils. The Devil House was our favorite dance club).

Getting all glamed up to go rock the night away with my best friend was my FAVORITE thing to do and those Devil House days are among my very favorite memories.

So when Heidi called me last month to ask if I wanted to go to the Def Leppard concert for my fabulous fortieth birthday I said, “Woo-Hoo! Lets go.”

And having my sister there too made it ALL THE BETTER.

The concert was amazing, they sound as awesome as ever, and getting to do a little people watching was priceless. I’m thinking that if you are a grown up person your days for getting drunk and acting like a complete fool should be over. They just should. And the same can be said for rolling around on the ground and getting freaky with your best guy (or random feller as the case may be) whilst among a crowd of people. Perhaps you could get away with that behavior as a teenaged person, but when your middle aged it’s disturbing, I’m just saying.

After the concert we headed to the Wigwam resort where we stayed up reminiscing and LAUGHING until four in the morning, Fabulous. It was fun being with the two people that I can talk about ANYTHING with because they know EVERYTHING about me (and love me anyway).

Next it was massages for all, DELICIOUS

And more, much missed visiting.

It was the perfect weekend and I hope we don’t wait another 20 years
before doing it again.

I came home feeling relaxed and happy and now have a constant stream of Def Leppard songs floating around in my brain. So fun.

Thanks Heidi for making my birthday so special and for spoiling me so. I can't wait to celebrate with you in March when you turn Fabulous like me (fabulously forty that is).

Thank YOU, for letting me whisk you away for the weekend! I had so much fun!!! Def Leppard and the spa was great, but the company made it even more special! And we will definitely NOT wait twenty years to do it again! Love you and talk to you soon!

How fun is that!!! And isn't that so great to stay close to your BFF & sister..
Troy & I went to U2 when they were here last & I thought it was so funny that people our age were getting stoned & all that.. I am just not a concert person. Troy was absolutely heart broken when he wanted to go again this year & I said no thanks. I've seen them 3 times now. I'm good. He told me he was devastated & shocked. I didn't even realize it...

Happy Late Birthday again & it looks like you had a fabulous time. Yeah for you!!!
