The Big Four-O

*sits down with a cup of coffee, gets ready for a new but short post on Cards Over Coffee*

Today I am turning the big 4-0. 

*takes a sip, tips mug towards laptop trying not to spill it and to cheer with you*

I can't believe this day has arrived, but I am glad it has. It's better to reach 40 then not to. That alone is the biggest blessing especially after all that I have gone through. I will also try not to have too much of a midlife crisis today.

Try being the key word.

I spent some time this morning to see which celebrities I share my birthday with. The list includes Glenn Close, Bruce Willis, Renee Taylor, and a few others including 2x Super Bowl Champion NY Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw.

Back in December, I won an autograph jersey from Ahmad on Instagram and have been meaning to show it off for a while. Today seemed like a good day to do so.

It was the first time I had actually won anything on Instagram and wouldn't have even seen or entered if it wasn't for a fellow Giants fan tagging me in the post. 

Side note, I really miss the red jerseys the Giants used to wear, hope they bring those back again.

This Ahmad signed jersey makes it the third signed Giants jersey I own. All three are running backs in Rodney Hampton, Brandon Jacobs and now Ahmad.

I don't have anything big planned today such as a birthday party, you reach a certain point in life when those don't matter. You also have to have friends to invite as well and I don't haha. Well, other than you guys reading this today and online friends. But, I don't think any of you will take a long trip today :)

I plan to just enjoy the day with a cup of joe with my carrot cake my mother-in-law will be dropping off. I hope you guys will have a long-distance cup with me!

Hope the rest of you have a great day and Happy Birthday to any other fellow March 19th birthday'ers who are reading this today.

  1. Happy birthday, Coffee Bruh!

  2. Happy 40th birthday to you. Every day is a present with blessings that we need to unwrap. Enjoy this day and many more. I hit the big "60" last October. If that is the top of the hill, I'm going to stay at the top. I need a refill!

    1. Thank you and yes I agree. Every day being alive is a huge blessing.

  3. Happy birthday! You also share your birthday with Clayton Kershaw!

    I turned 40 before I even had a blog. There is so much more for you to do.

    1. I know, there is a lot I want to do. I just need to do it. I would love to write a book and be a football coach.

  4. Happy Birthday! 🎈 I hope you have a great day.
    Turning 40 didn’t bother me. Turning 50 didn’t bother me either, but made me stop and think a little bit about what (little) I’d accomplished in life. Turning 60 was a little strange, but it happened in 2020, so everything was a little strange. I’m looking forward to 65 and hopefully retiring.
    Enjoy your birthday!

    1. Thank you!! Happy retirement when you get there! Not sure I will ever be able to retire haha
