She's 50 and fabulous – and has the ID card to prove it!

First Lady Michelle Obama turned the big 5-0 on Friday, and showed off one of her first birthday gifts, courtesy of the American Association of Retired Persons: a free membership card.

"Excited to join Barack in the 50+ club today… check out my @AARP card!" she wrote on Twitter next to a photo of herself grinning and showing off the card. Some 50-year-olds dread receiving it, but not Michelle!

"I don’t feel that much differently than I did when I was younger," Mrs. Obama told PEOPLE in advance of her big milestone. "What I hear is that age is a number, it’s a state of mind."



As for what President Obama might be wrapping in ribbon for the birthday girl today, "That's top-secret," he tells PEOPLE. "Not even the NSA knows that."

For more of our interview with the First Lady – including her thoughts on Botox, menopause and becoming a grandma – pick up the latest issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands now.
