Shhhh! It's a Surprise

So tonight is the night. I am throwing my hubby a surprise 30th birthday party. After months and months of planning, I can finally put this thing behind me ~ just a few more hours ...

My stomach is in knots. I really hope he is surprised. Although yesterday, while food shopping, I asked him what kind of cake he wants for the day of his birthday. "A Captain America shield." Huh? That's EXACTLY the cake I ordered from the caterer! Could it just be chance? Did someone spill the beans? Has he been checking my e-mail, the bastard?

If that's the case, and he knows, I wish he would say something so that I could relax a little and enjoy this night. I worked hard on this.

I did an 80's theme. We're playing all 80's music, all night long. I put together gift baskets with 80's memoribilia ~ movies, music, games, toys, even candy. At the end of the night, I'm going to raffle off the baskets to a lucky winner. I even thought about bringing in a TV to play Atari, but it's too much to deal with. As it is, I had to leave most of the planning to a few family members. I realized during this whole process that I am a control freak.

Ugh my stomach! Wish me luck amigos. Oh and here's a little weekend sunshine in the form of a video. It's J singing happy birthday to her daddy. His real birthday is Wednesday, the 26th. Ciao!!

Cute video....and you call that a mess behind her? You don't want to see our playroom! :)

I hope it all turns out OK and that he doesn't know already. Maybe the cake comment was merely a fluke.

Mess? What mess? LOL

OMG that sounds like MY kind of party, I LOVE the 80's. I'm sure it will be a success and he'll have a blast. Maybe the cake comment was just a coincidence.....after all, he is your husband and you know what he likes LOL

Good luck on the party, I am sure it will be a surprise and turn out exactly right. If there happens to be a flaw, that also was meant to be and that is how memmories are created!
