Birthday bash

There are a lot of things my husband is good at, but surprise and stealth are not on that list. So imagine my surprise when I got home yesterday evening to find a surprise birthday party in the works for me! I was very very happy! My most favorite people showed up, we had really good food (cooked by my personal chef), excellent beer, and cake and presents. My favorite present is this. If this teaching thing doesn't work out I'm becoming an astronaut and going to Mars. I got lovely candles and sconces, whimsical wind chimes, a garden spike with jeweled bees and flowers, photos albums in sunny yellows and oranges, and a dozen long stem red roses that are perfect to behold, and the ever popular kitchen gadgets and dark chocolate. Can life get any better?

I am blessed that I have such a wonderful family and such incredible friends. One of my favorite thing to do is have friends over to my house for dinner and conversation, and I couldn't have asked for a better birthday. Thanks to everyone!

Belated Happy Birthday. Surprise birthday parties are quite unnerving at times. Till the last minute, you cant be sure if your friends and family have forgotten your birthday or just pretending, but in the end, the excitement and suspense just makes things all the more merry.
Its great to know you had such an amazing time. Wishing you all the luck in life and I love the idea of receiving wind chimes. They are such pretty little things.
Drop into my blog for some unique birthday gift and party ideas.
