It was kind of a normal day. I got up early and sent Landon out the door, went to work all day, and came home. It's weird how birthdays change as you get older. Luckily, Landon made it a special day after all!
He told me that we were going somewhere for a surprise and that I had to be home by 6:30. We left the house around 6:45 and drove around for awhile...he couldn't find where we were supposed to be going. I calmly advised that he call his family and ask them to look up the address. He stopped the car and called everyone we knew, but no one was home to help.
Dejected, he came back to the car and told me that we would just have to go back home and look it up. He apologized about 60 times. We made it back to our apartment, he opened the door and pushed me inside, and I found:
Ta-Dah! I surprise party just for me! Woo hoo! I've never had a surprise party before. The party came complete with My family and friends,Lots of generous presents and a birthday crown...
And balloons! (I guess Landon didn't look at the packaging close enough - We laughed hard about this)Thanks everyone, for making it a special day. It's nice to know there are people who love me unconditionally and are willing to hide in my house, put up decorations and jump out and yell surprise. It's always nice to feel appreciated. And thanks to everyone for all the wonderful gifts. I can't wait to read my books, watch my movies, have a picnic with our new basket, wear my new clothes (actually, I'm wearing them today - thanks Mom and Landon!), and hang up the picture my parents gave me. I love you all!
