This coming weekend is my birthday, but the festivities started early this past weekend because dh threw me a surprise party! I'm not having a "big" birthday this year, so it was a nice surprise. He did a great job. And it so explains some of his odd behavior over the last week. LOL
He was so sweet and had it at a local rec. center where I've actually thrown him surprise parties in the past. It is a great building, perfect for doing a party. He just told me to dress nice because we were going to do a family event that might have pictures taken. And on a side note I'd show you pictures, but literally every picture taken of me at the party stinks. But, I will pull some pix off the camera to show you how cool the decorations were. The theme was luau. Our family all pitched in and did a great job.
As we are on our way to the party (unknown to me) and dh pulls over at a 7-Eleven and tells me I have to get blindfolded. It is a good thing after so many years of marriage, we have trust because I'll tell you riding in a car blindfolded with headphones on hanging on to the oh sh#! bar praying you don't loose it is just crazy. And I'm not usually a claustrophobic person, but I have to admit that was kind of making me feel claustrophobic.
Once we got there and had the big reveal it was great. I have to say it was so nice having family and friends together. A great kick off to the holidays coming up. And I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful, thoughtful husband. I think a great time was had by all. Especially my two children. My youngest especially enjoyed throwing marshmallows into the chocolate fountain and my oldest had fun attacking the punch fountain. Good times. Good times.
So, that is what is going on here today. Hope you are having a great day in your neck of the woods!
p.s. There are going to be some great giveaways coming up this week, so be sure to check back!
