Fabulous, Fit and Forty

My dear friend who lives in the tiny town of Thomas became my friend 20 years ago when we became Kappa sisters. We have had some times over the last 20 years, if you know what I mean. Some unforgettable, laughter filled, memory making, God inspired, silly to the max moments, all precious to us!

Our fortieth birthdays were just a few days apart, so we decided to throw a party for ourselves and invite some of our oldest friends.

Girls, do not be too shy to have your own party. It was fantastic! Here was the invitation:

20 years ago,
we were focused on the two L's...
Love and Labels.
Our friends helped us spot the knock-offs. Now as we turn forty,
we need you to help us focus on being
fit and fabulous!
Come celebrate our birthdays with us!!

Please join us for any and all of this fun-filled day...

1:00 Sky Fitness Hip Hop Class
wear your workout clothes for an awesome hour with our female instructor who is going to show us how to move! Anne and Kerry decided it is high time we learn how to shake it like Beyonce. If nothing else, come laugh at us!!!

2:00 Weights, Sauna, Steam Room, Showers
bring your makeup and clothes because after our workouts, we will relax in the steam room and get ready for the rest of our day. Sky provides towels and hair products. Don't be shy; it will be fun, and you won't want to miss it!

4:30 Manicures at Nail Image
As you know, exercising your great style is just as important as working out!!! Come join us for complimentary manicures. How can you say no to that?

7:00 Dinner at the Brassiere Restaurant on Brookside
Ooh La La! This is the premiere French Restaurant in town! We will have lots of laughs and a great dinner, so BE THERE!

After Dinner: Turn your girls' day out into a girls' night out!

We have spent so many times like this with you in the past that we didn't want any more time slip by before we do it again. We would love for you to join us for the entire day, but if you can only make it for part of the day, that is great too. Just RSVP and let us know what part of the day you will attend so we can make the necessary accomodations.
We can't wait to see you!!

That explains the day, and the pictures will explain how much fun it was to see friends from who life has dragged us away. A few I haven't seen in YEARS. How wonderful it was to catch up!! And were we sore the next day from our hip-hop class, which by the way was hilarious.
