Fabulous Birthday

I really did have a fabulous 50th Birthday.  In the morning we had our Ward's Super Saturday (my projects are on my other blog renaecreates.blogspot.com) where all the ladies sang happy birthday to me and a few friends brought me some gifts.  I came home to Oreo cookies and tomato and basil chips from my husband and these decorations in my scrapbook room from Taylor.
I spent the afternoon on the phone with my daughter, my mom and my friend Stacey.  I also got calls and texts later from a couple of my sisters as well as tons of well wishes on Facebook.  My husband took me shopping and he bought me some diamond earrings and a beautiful ring.  He then took me to dinner at The Cheesecake Factory which I got my favorites Cheese, Tomato & Basil pizza as well as the Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake, so yummy.
 
That night I came home to these beautiful flowers from my son and the most beautiful cupcake I have ever seen from Hannah.  It was indeed a fabulous day!

Punching Bag

I started getting out anger feelings using a punching bag, but lately I haven't wanted to do it.  Then a thought popped into my head that my mom says, "when you don't feel like praying, that is when you need to do it the most."  So I changed it to, "when you don't feel like punching, that is when you need to do it the most."  Punching gets the anger out of my body, I don't even think anger thoughts to start with, I just put on aggressive music and start, before I know it anger is coming out.  The song I use is 6 minutes long, so I punch as much as I can in those 6 minutes.  I know I need to keep getting out what is in me, so a punching I will go!

Fabulous Fifties

October is here and my birthday is this month, and it's a biggie!  This month I turn 50, I can hardly believe it!  I have had a few people ask me what I am going to do for this birthday, not really sure yet.  I do know that I have Super Saturday in my Ward that day so I get to spend the morning being creative, which will be fun.  The rest of the day I'm still working on. 

When I turned 40, I did it at Disneyland and it was so much fun!  But then again, that was my goal "Fun at 40."  Not sure I accomplished a lot of that as that's when my break down happened, therapy, depression and so much more.  I certainly re-learned my definition of fun so I suppose that is a good thing.

I've decided that at 50 I want to be Fabulous, so that is my goal for this next year.  My goal is to think fabulous thoughts, do things that make me feel and look fabulous, hope you do something fabulous too!
