For a very long time Marty has been making me promise not to plan anything for this weekend, so I knew something was up his sleeve. We headed to the zoo yesterday morning as what I thought was just the first of many activities and perhaps a night away. But after the zoo and a quick sandwich stop, we stopped back by our place to "pack our bags", but instead found a big group of my friends and family.
Marty had clearly instructed them that I "liked surprises but not being startled" so Marty walked through the door first and when I came in they gave a very friendly Happy Birthday cheer! I screamed and threw my purse on the ground. It was awesome.
My second was wondering if Marty had bought enough food and goodies to host all these people. He had.
I am so grateful for a sweet husband to plan me a party and for all my friends who love me enough to give up their saturday afternoon and for my family who drove down from our home town. I am just too flattered and grateful.
And too top it all off, my mom made cupcakes, and mom-made-cupcakes are just the best on your birthday.
This year is gonna be dynamite!
