So, I have been super MIA lately…and I will explain that all in a bit in another post. We had an extra visitor at our house over the weekend that made our lives a little busier than normal, but all is good and I’m back!
I just wanted to pop in today to wish the happiest of birthdays to my one and only mom. She turns the big 6-0 today! Sorry, Mom…but none of your friends read my blog. My mom and I are incredibly close and I cannot express how thankful I am for everything she has done for me and has been for me throughout my life!
This past Saturday, Lee and I threw a surprise party for my mom at Ligonier Country Inn, which is the venue where we got married last year. It’s one of our favorite places to go and they do an absolutely wonderful job with any type of function, whether it is a wedding of 300 or a private party of 20 (which ours was!). I told my mom that we had reservations just for the four of us (me, Lee, my mom, and dad) for dinner which would be followed by live music around their pool area. Yes, they do have live music around their pool area on the weekends, but it’s on Fridays, not Saturdays…but she didn’t have to know that!
I invited our family and her closest friends and neighbors to celebrate and I am pleased to say that she was totally surprised!! She had absolutely no idea that there was anything going on other than the small dinner for four. Her face when she walked in was priceless! Success! We enjoyed a dinner that included fruit, vegetables, and cheese for apps and chicken, parsley potatoes, carrots, and green beans for dinner. We, then, concluded with birthday cake and ice cream. Of course!
The evening was absolutely wonderful and my mom had a great time celebrating with those that mean the most to her. That’s all that mattered to her!
Today is her real birthday…so Happy 60th, Mom! Here’s to many, many, more!
Love and Good Wishes,
Something to share: Have you ever planned a surprise party or had one thrown for you?
