Big 4-0 Birthday bash!

Happy Friday, friends! Here are just a 'few' pictures of a birthday party D had for me last Saturday. It was snowy and it was cold but still... 32 of us braved the blustery weather to come out. D knows that I love good food, quality wine, family, friends and lots of pretty so  he and my bestie worked hard to create a magical night. 

He had it in a local restaurant in one of the private rooms so we were able to move around a bit! I came early as he wanted me to check things out and slowly welcome everyone. 

I do apologize in advance for the 1000 pics you're about to view.

My parents and my brother. 

My baby brother moved mountains with work and family to get here.

Ten of my family members came from NYC, Pennsylvania and Washington DC. Our house was packed and SO MUCH fun on Saturday and Sunday. We laight so much 

 I'm owning this 4-0!!

And then after the beautiful appetizers (crab cakes, shrimp, scallops and spinach phyllo), it was time to eat (forgive my iPhone quick shots)

This girl worked so hard to make all this birthday magic come alive! Sidenote, some of these things are from her house!!!

These coconut cake pops were pure magic!

My kids were the only kids there but they had a wonderful time!

Special thanks to Andrea for taking some wonderful shots of the evening. And special thanks to everyone who made it to the end of this very picture heavy post. 

We were supposed to be heading to a pub locally with a few friends after but as some of my family was only here for less than 24 hours, we headed home instead and  were joined by my two besties and their husbands. We chatted, played games and drank some special adult beverages. I ended up going to bed at 5:30 that night!!! I felt all the love from my nearest and dearest. 

D, thank you so much for my party. You did so good!!! I truly appreciate it and you! 

Happy weekending, friends!
