7 Ways Women Over 40 Celebrate Their Birthdays

41

I just turned 41 over the weekend and celebrated with family & a handful of friends from high school. Nothing big. Just drinks, pizza, drinks, cupcakes…oh and drinks. Did I mention we had some drinks?

After a day of recovery (not built to party like I used to), I compiled a list sharing how others celebrated their 40th and beyond. In the weeks prior to my birthday, I did some research, polled a few people and came up with the most common answers. Most are obvious choices, although my weekend didn’t fall into these categories. Unless you consider how much laughing we did…then I suppose it fell into the Humor category!

Humor

If you are anything like me, you use humor to deal with life.

Travel

Destinations become checklist items. Tropical? Cold? Historic? Yes please!

Elaborate Dinner Party

I am talking full on knowing what spoon and fork to use type of dinner soiree.

Cocktail Crawl

Its a grown pub crawl but with cocktails instead of pints.

Wine & Dine

Steaks, bottomless wine and a dessert that takes longer to assemble than eat.

Girl’s Night Out

Sexy outfit, glam makeup and your squad!

Pajamas & A Movie

Rom-Com, Lifetime or Tearjerker style movies in your pj’s with a side of ice cream.

 

When you hit 40 or beyond, how did you celebrate?
