For TL's 30th... I decided to throw him a surprise party. (Funny, because I mentioned what to do for him in a post and a few of you posted to do this for him!) I'm far from a party planner. I'm hardly a good hostess. But, I decided to throw it at our new house anyways. My dad and BIL, Matt, kept him busy all day doing construction stuff while a few helpers and I got things ready. He was so surprised, I thought he may poop his pants ;)
It was fairly small (I wasn't sure how to make a guest list and keep it a secret - so I kept it small) and we were both so happy that his family was able to drive two hours to come. (Cousins Steve & Mackenzie, his brothers - Joe & Dave, and his mom). He was shocked and very touched!
The dessert table... funfetti cupcakes & brownies (both his favorite)
He was so excited to see his mom!
Not only did we surprise him - we completely scared him!
I stuck funny pictures of him and '30's into the cupcakes.
My team of party planners - BFF Jenny, Cuzo Greyson, and mom & sisters :)
Some of the gang waiting for him to walk in.
Sweet family who drove hours to be there
(Steve, Moms, Mackenzie, Joe, Dave)
He was all sweaty from doing construction work with my dad & BIL - after saying hello, he took a fast shower. This was right when he arrived :) I was so excited!
Some very intense games of 'beer pong' started! (Spectators and players above)
Me & my favorite guy - Happy 30th, TL.
My mom and 2 of her 3 SILs - Matt helped distract him all day.
btw, see TL's shirt? My aunt and uncle made it for him... it says "I'm 30... F*@% Ya!". And on the back, it says - "I love my Aunt Paula & Uncle Steve". Hilarious!
Here's a video of him walking in... it takes a few seconds to get to see him come in (they were getting beers in the garage), but it's worth the wait!
You can kind of see him go into our room, and my sister stops taping right when he came out. His hands were full and he was so shocked.
It was fun to do something like this. We had catered Mexican food (delicious) and drank wine and beer together late into the evening. It was a wonderful celebration of a great guy.
Happy 30th Birthday, TL.
Love you so much.
