In my almost 30 years of life, I have had 3 surprise parties thrown for me (I think, if I am remembering right).
1. November of 2000. My mom threw me one for my 21st birthday at Callahan's with close family friends. My mom got me there by just going for dinner there with another friend.
2. July or August of 2002. My mom, and a couple other friends threw me a surprise bridal shower. Trever and I were supposed to be going lap swimming, so I was wearing my swimsuit and board shorts. It wasn't so bad though, because it was a Hawaiian theme shower.
3. November 9th, 2009 (last night). My husband, Trever, threw me a surprise party for my 30th birthday (which will be on the 17th). He sent out an e-vite to family and friends. He had Panini's and soup catered by a local gal, and even had entertainment for everyone. The one and only Random Sound was there. Carson loved the music and danced the night away!
Yesterday afternoon, Trever, called me from his office and said that the circus was setting up (his office is at the Ashland Old Armory) and he talked to a guy who said we could come back a little after 6:30 to watch them practice. So. That is what I thought we were going to do. Little did I know that when Trev said, "they're to the left," I would have a group of people saying "surprise!" with camera's and video camera's all focused on me! I was very very surprised. I did not expect it at all! Especially just over a week early! Man oh man! Trever and all had me good!
Pictures will come later, as I did not have my camera, and had to use a film camera which we have to have developed.
It was so great to see everyone and hear my nephew's band and eat great food (even though I was full from the dinner I made and eaten). ;)
