It's Lizzie Rovsek's 40th birthday, and she's celebrating with a photo shoot that captures her playful, party-ready sense of style. On her big day, The Real Housewives of Orange County alum posted a series of snapshots that found her smiling big and licking frosting off her fingers.

Channeling funky ballerina style in a hot pink skirt, leg warmers, and a curve-clinging tank top, the swimwear designer licked frosting off a flowery cake. (The candles on top proudly called out Lizzie's milestone age.) She played up the fresh, joyful style with a slick of petal-pink lipstick, and her lids were dusted with a dusky pink shadow. 

In her caption, the birthday girl listed 40 lessons she's learned in her 40 years. "Laughter is the best medicine," was one nugget, while another statement read, "Don’t take life so seriously." Still another gem: "Happiness is the highest level of success." No wonder Lizzie's smiling so big:

🖤🎂💋40 things on my 40th Birthday🎈 ❣️Nothing in this life will make you as happy, or sad, as exhausted or proud as being a mother. ❣️Laughter is the best medicine. ❣️You learn a lot about people when they don’t get what they want. ❣️Workouts are great therapy. ❣️True friends are gifts .❣️You never get the same moment twice. ❣️Tell your parents you love them❣️Gratitude softens the heart❣️Two people can look at the same exact thing and see something different. ❣️There’s something about summer nights in Kentucky. ❣️I miss my Grandma Mary’s laugh. ❣️I wish sunsets lasted longer. ❣️Don’t take life so seriously.❣️Life isn’t fair. ❣️Forgiveness will set you free. ❣️Be humble. ❣️There will always be someone younger, prettier and smarter (isn’t that a relief?) ❣️Happily ever after requires lots of work. ❣️A sense of humor is so attractive. ❣️People pleasing is a waste of time. ❣️Happiness is the highest level of success. ❣️Make people feel good about themselves. ❣️Kindness is important. ❣️When stuck at a crossroads, just make a decision. Trust that God will meet you there. ❣️Hard work and big risks build character. ❣️Listen when your children talk to you. Sometimes God speaks through them. ❣️Don’t give up... ❣️Traveling changes the way you think. ❣️Children only get one childhood. ❣️Everyone doesn’t need to know everything about our lives. Value your privacy. ❣️Happiness is contagious. ❣️Advocate for your children, no one will care more about their happiness, future, or well being than you. ❣️Whoever is gossiping to you; will gossip about you. ❣️God gives us what we need; not always what we want.❣️Everything happens for a reason.❣️Hurt people hurt people. ❣️Parenting is hard.❣️The best moments in my life don’t make social media. ❣️Being ‘present’ has become one of the greatest qualities to possess. ❣️One of my favorite quotes by Mother Theresa, “if you want to change the world, go home and love your family.” #thisis40
