FEMALE TURNING "40"

Well this is the year and I want to do something different or unique and of course inexpensive.Any ideas that will feel like I have knocked ten years off of my life?

I'm skydiving for my 50th.
For my 40th I went to England with a group of WWII vets for a reunion of my uncle's squadron. There's nothing like spending a week with people twice your age to make you feel young and spry.

For my 40th I went ice skating which, who would have guessed, led to a passion for figure skating. Now, I skate 5-6 hours a week and will leave soon for an adult training "camp" at the Sports Complex in Salt Lake City. Wish I had discovered this at 4 instead of 40 but late than never! By the way, 40 rocks! Hope you enjoy a very happy birthday whatever you decide to do.

dcespedes, I thought it was a Happy Birthday Clown!
You will overcome the icon issues as long as you constantly use them

jpher, a topic near and dear to my heart! My "event" is next spring and I've already been thinking about it. A lot--lol! As for taking 10 years off, the best answer I've come up with so far is: a 30 year old guy!
Very interested in all the replies, particularly for a single gal travelling alone. I went skydiving for my 35th and what a rush!! You'll never forget it.

maybe I'll look up Ashton Kutcher. It seems to be the thing to do nowadays

I had the "pleasure-?" almost 2 years ago and had a great time.

Went to Destin, FL (one of my favorites) and rented a condo on the beach for a week. Sheer heaven!

Fun restaurants, harbor cruises, jet skis for 2 days, etc.

Best of all walking the beach for hours at a time! A favorite since childhood.

No, actually, best of all was husband tracing "I Love You R.." in the sand at 4am in huge letters, so I'd see it from our balcony first thing in the morning. (Funny thing was I couldn't sleep and wondered where he was, so I went to the balcony (there he was at the beach, so I watched him write it in the sand from the balcony) Very special memory.

Happy Birthday!!!!

Make it great with something you truly enjoy!
