Game Night - Celebrating 40 in 40 Celebration

Game Night was the event of the day for Saturday. The first few hours I was running around forgetting every thing. I had to go back to the store and the house because of things I left. But once I arrived to the Game Night location, everything was smooth sailing!

Because it is game night and many of the people are committed to eating healthier, snacks consist of veggie trays, fruit trays, cheeses, and chips and dips. Now before you turn up your noses.














I AM THE BIRTHDAY GIRL! So, there were brownies with ice cream for brownie sundaes!!!!



In between the snacking we actually got some game time in! First up was the Micheal Jackson Experience.


Now, this was great comedy! Some of my friends are super competitive. Perfect Ten could not believe she only earned 1 star on her first attempt. In her defense, she did pick an inhuman routine and her controller was not reading properly. She loves it so much is about to buy a WII just to get the game!

Dancing Diva came in and was ready for action. Now she is super competitive too. She was making all the moves and were in sync with the game and her partner, but the system ranked her low too. Their reactions were classic. I was too busy laughing that I forgot to get pictures of most of the others doing it.

Here are to rookies playing. They did well!


After everyone was hot and tired from MJE, we took another snack break. Then it was time for Taboo.
         

                                                  

We played two good games of it. The last game was close throughout with a few lead changes. Team Bun wanted to quit as soon as they got the lead for the first time. However, Team Nick was not having it. It was only fitting to play until 40 points. At this point, only 1 point separated the 2 teams. From there on out, everyone was on their toes! Funny this is at the end of a round, both teams had 40 points. On to sudden death! Team Bun pulled off the win by 1 point. Definitely a good game!

The players who finished off the night. Others left earlier due to other commitments, but fun time was held by all!




Game Night was a great time with good friends. Can't wait until the next adventure.

Day 1 in the 40 in 40 Celebration

 Today's get out of the house event was pole dancing at Dance 411 Studios. Several people were planning to go. However, conflicting schedules and late registration prevented many to join us. Despite some of my people not being about to go, I was determine to get out and do it! One of  my coworkers, Dance Diva, did make it out.


Now you did not think you were going to get pictures of us on the pole did you? HA!

Since its the first day of my 40 in 40, I am still getting other dates in order. I just added a daily spiritual component. Yesterday, I just looked at a stack of 4 books on one of my stands. There was this book I have been meaning to read and do.It is The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren. It is a 40 day reflection. Can't get any better than that! SPIRITUAL GROWTH

Less than a week ago, I was chatting via FB with a couple of my line sisters about a photo shoot one of them is having. That sparked the notion we need to be fine-eeerrrrrrrrrrrr for it. From it the Strut Challenge was birthed. It is a 5 week challenge (June 1st - July 5th). It consists of more exercise, water, fruits and veggies and less sugar, pasta, and bread. There is so much excitement on the FB event page. It is so encouraging. PHYSICAL GROWTH 

This is all going on while I am still working my calendar of events for my 40 in 40. Which is allowing me to do all the things I have not made time to do and see people without stressing about when I see them. MENTAL GROWTH 

So as I usher into my 40th birthday, I have my mental, physical, and spiritual covered!

I have been such a bad blogger 

I plan to do better. My intentions is to do very short posts about my 40 in 40 Celebration. On tap for the weekend is pole dancing, game night, and visiting a museum.

Let's hope I don't have too much fun and too tired to blog!
