And so it was…

A friend is one of the nicest things you can have,
and one of the best things you can be.

Birthday Party

The surprise in the making that I was grateful for last Thursday, finally happened this Saturday
Lovely Husband’s surprise birthday party is now over and I have a feeling  it will be remembered for a long while
Close friends and family were all there, waiting in the dark for him to come back from work
and the gift I got from it all was watching his stunned expression when he saw everyone


The food was plenty the music filled our hearts, and the company made it even sweeter
I spent quite a bit of time making sure he would not notice anything
It was such a challenge organizing everything quietly being careful not to raise any suspicion
Being able to have our family from south of the border was also a challenge to overcome and much to my surprise

It all worked out

It was the first time I had ever planned a surprise party this size and I loved it
The adrenaline rush, the secrecy of it all and the challenges I had to face were so much fun
Darling Daughter and Sweet Son’s help were instrumental in making it all a big success
The best reward of all was having everyone together having the time of their life

Who knew it would be so much fun? 😉



  1. What you gave was love — and yes, the pleasure and excitement of being able to pull off a surprise is the gift you gave yourself…the gifts of love were given to your husband. I’m so happy it was such a success. Happy Belated wishes to your husband! xo


    1. I did not realize it at first but it was something I had wanted to do for years and never allowed myself to because he really dislikes birthday. Yet seeing his face and how happy everyone was, I am so glad I went through with it all. Thank you for your wishes Sherry xo


  2. Very sly and clever to pull of a surprise, you must be! So glad it was a success and a night to remember. What a lovely table you set, by the way. Yum.
