I kept a secret from my husband for a long time.
It was not easy.
It was not fun.
It was stressful.
I had to pay for things in cash. I had to sneak around on my lunch hour. I had to keep my cell phone in my purse (instead of leaving it on the counter like normal) so he would not accidentally read a text message.
I had to come up with several elaborate stories. One was trying to explain why my trunk looked like this:
I lost sleep because I would wake up in the middle of the night making to do lists in my head. I had to pretend we had plans that we didn't. I had to make up ridiculous reasons why we couldn't go here or there, or make buy tickets to a concert on Saturday night.
The hardest part was staying calm the week of and relaxing while around him, while I was really stressing about my secret plan.
But it all worked out...
A little blurry, but still fitting.
I surprised my husband with a 30th birthday party.
And cupcakes, and a beer cake. (Beer cake idea was actually crafted by my parents)
And of course, booze. Keg of beer not pictured :)
And most of his family. Even my parents drove 3 hours for his party.
|Adam and his father-in-law.|
I think he liked his cake.
Oh, and we had a Nacho Bar. Build your own Chicken Nachos.
All the fixin's.
I was relieved, he was was super surprised.
Shout out to my friend Lora for her help with setup! I was a crazy chick that afternoon and she kept me sane.
We had a wonderful time. Adam was so surprised he was speechless, which is rare. I'm so thankful for our fabulous family and friends for spending the evening with us celebrating Adam's 30th birthday.
Cheers to 30 years!
Oh hey P.S. Did you know we are having a giveaway?
