Well the joke was on me this weekend! I knew I was going to TN to spend time with my family for my 30th birthday, but I had NO IDEA that my sister had planned an AWESOME SURPRISE PARTY for me!!! I am a hard one to pull things over on. I am very inquisitive and always ask a million questions. Not this time. I took the weekend for what it was, and got the surprise of a lifetime.
The day started just as was told it would, Wendi took me shopping and then she treated me to a spa package. (Yes, you can be jealous. I have the best little sis in the WHOLE WORLD! No reason to debate it!!) After the spa we headed home to get ready for dinner. Here's how they got me, I was told we were going to pick up my sister in law at a Christmas party on our way to dinner. BUT... when we walked into the "Christmas" party the joke was on me!!
This is Wendi...
This is right after I arrive and was "crowned" and given a boa. The boys loved the boa!
This is my girlfriend Jenn, and her precious little man Jack. He had a great time at the party. Look how tired he is from running around after all the other kids!
The boys helping me blow out my candles. Good thing they didn't light 30 candles. We had a hard enough time blowing out these!
I could not believe how many people came, and how far so many of them had travelled to celebrate with me. The party was catered by Divine Delicacies, and if you are gonna have a party in the Tri-Cities area I would highly recommend them.
After the party, to top off the evening, Wendi had rented rooms at The Meadowview so we could have a good old fashioned slumber party. It was so much fun to catch up with some of my old girlfriends from high school and the sorority. Living in SC I really miss all of them.
I truly do have the best friends and family. I am blessed beyond measure and I can not put into words what this weekend meant to me. My sister worked so hard on it, and I will always treasure the memory of turning 30! I hope you also had a phenomenal weekend!
