I don't know, but I may be back to see what your commenters have to say. I turn 40 in one year and two days.

Maybe you should take a trip without the clowns. A nice long weekend away with hubby.

Dance like it is your first time on the floor. Eat, like it is your first time at the banquet of life. Drink in the air, the people, the day, the words, the trees, the birds and every single visual that graces your eyes in that 24 hours.
Listen to every word spoken, every note played on the radio, every one of natures glorious sounds.
Take at least half of that day and sit by yourself and pat yourself on the back and give YOU a gold medal for what you have accomplished. Redefine what an attitude of gratitude is.
Then celebrate the medal and accolades all over again with the love of your friends!
Warmly,
David

It's widely known that Baltimore is the traditional 40th birthday destination. ;)

I think you should take a weekend away with Hubby and make sure that at least one day is focussed solely on you. I recommend loads of spa treatments and pampering so you feel fantastic. After all, the rest of your time is spent running the Circus - you deserve a treat!

Nance said...

no offense to the lair of..., but if you are focusing and pampering YOU, then run away for a weekend sans husband. that way, you have no worries AT ALL about who is watching the kids and how they are. go visit a friend or sister (not sure of your family dynamic) for a long weekend and have a Girls Getaway. You've got 6 months to plan. See who's in. It'll be late September...lots of places will be "off-season" for rates. Start plotting.

I was suppose to go away for a mom's weekend when I turned 40. Of course I was deathly ill and missed out. We made up for it a while later when 4 of us girls went to a Bon Jovi concert and partied it up.

Dancing naked and drunk on a table in some bar in Vegas. :)

Bone Machine said...

Smokin' crack, eatin' donuts, shootin' fireworks, and listening to vulgar music.

Maybe knock over a liquor store, too.

Day at a spa, dinner at fancy restaurant, great s*x-absolutely no kids!

I can't recall if you like to shop (I think you do, right?)...if so, a girls' weekend of shopping. Stay at one of those hotels with free drinks & munchies "manager's happy hour" (and breakfast in the morning). Don't forget to have a fun dinner out late somewhere!
My husband was in Iraq on my 40th, so his sisters & mother kidnapped me for the above surprise. Grandpa babysat the boys at home. I felt very loved.

You guys are awesome! Those are some great ideas!

Sharkey - That was my first thought, too.

David - Welcome! I really appreciate your warm, thoughtful answer. Something tells me I should start working on some of these suggestions now. :)

Susie - Is that an invitation? :)

Platy - I'm not gonna argue with you! :)

Nance - That's my whole reason for this post - I need to start plotting now!

Mrs.S - BON JOVI?! Aw, see, now THAT would be cool. I wonder what Trace is doin' around the end of October...

Claudia - AGAIN?! ;)

Bone - AGAIN?! Wait, did you say a liquor store or TWO?

Mrs. G - I like the way you think... and may I add "repeat as necessary".

KC - Woo! That would be FABULOUS! I

So many good ideas... I may have to celebrate ALL MONTH...

I recommend your husband conspire with your friends to throw you an awesome suprprise party. You can have great s*x after they leave!

Circus Kelli said...

Well, hell. My birthday is on a Wednesday. How am I going to celebrate that?

Circus Kelli said...

CM - I LOVE the way you think!

Jenn - Hmmm... he reads this blog, you know... ;)
