I was able to pull my first surprise birthday party off this last Saturday. As you all know from one of the previous posts the Sexy Husband had a birthday and turned the big three zero! Back before the wedding was even completely planned I had mentioned to his mother that I would like to throw him a surprise birthday party. His family is very good at parties so I recruited an aunt, his mother, and two cousins to help with the planning.
Due to a comment made a couple years ago by one of his younger cousins the family joke is that thirty is "old". So the theme for the party was, of course, "old". I chose black and aqua blue as the colors, ordered a black plain cake that I topped with cool curlies and candles I found, and had everyone bringing something "old" for him.
The hardest part was getting him out the house. Luckily I was able to recruit a friend to have a "project" that she needed help to get him out for just a couple hours then they were to come pick me up to go eat lunch.
He left me pretending I was still asleep and as soon as enough time passed I flew out of bed. I rushed around cleaning up because not only was my mother-in-law and mother going to be in my house but 20 something other people were too!
He was surprised.
Everyone had fun.
It was fantastic!
I am totally enjoying being married to this wonderful man!
