For my birthday this year, my husband planned a dinner out. He found the babysitter and just told me when to be ready. For a mommy of three, two of them newborn, ANY time out with JUST my husband is a lot to be thankful for. Peace. And. Quiet. What a great gift.
We went to my favorite restaurant, La Pescarez. It is an Uh-MAY-zing Italian food restaurant. Low light. Friday night live music. Free twisted bread sticks. Artichokes. Yes, I loved every minute of it. We only had a sitter from 6-7:30. Our great friends Chris and Kaylee got
We talked the whole way home, enjoying our last moments of silence.
We pull into the drive way and head into the house. The front door is shut and the only lights visible are the lamps in the living room. I think to myself, "I bet the kiddos are in bed." We go inside.
There are streamers, cupcakes, decorations (zebra printed and all) and best of all FRIENDS!! Jeremy had successfully set up a surprise party. I was indeed surprised! I had no clue that any of that was going down. They parked all down our street. Chris and Kaylee really didn't have a movie to go to. Jeremy had made 34 cupcakes and an individual cake and iced them all, and they were hiding in the oven.
It was such a great time!! I have been so blessed in my 29 years on this earth. I have a great family, amazing friends and so much more to be thankful for!
Speaking of great friends, here is my bestie, Mary. I can't believe she kept the secret from me! I wish I would have gotten a group shot!! I am loving my crazy little life right now. Happy Birthday to me! Here's to another year.
