All week I have been beating myself up about last weekends' madness in "trying" to celebrate Andrew's birthday. So, I planned attempt #2: Project Surprise Party.
I told Andrew I had to go into work early yesterday and pick up the cake, decorations and supplies. Thank goodness for the Dollar Tree! That place rocks! I ran over to my parents house and dropped everything off. I put my niece Megan in charge to set up and decorate however she wanted. I had balloons, banners, tablecloths... and more balloons. Then I headed off to work.
Andrew and I planned to go to Red Robin for dinner because I had a coupon for a free meal on your birthday! But, we had to make a stop at my parents' house to drop off something "work related." It was funny because we were both starving and getting antsy to get out so when we stopped at my parents' house, Andrew wanted to stay in the car while I dropped off whatever "work related" stuff my dad "needed." Well, I kind of made him come in with me and Londyn... which he wasn't thrilled about. When we got there... he still wasn't sure why there were lots of people there and decorations. Then I told him to come outside and everyone shouted "SURPRISE!" I totally got him! He had no clue!
Megan did an awesome job decorating and I was so busy that I forgot to get pictures of it all. My mom is amazing and got 10 Domino's pizzas and made a delish salad. Thanks Mama Mia! My sister brought the sodas and water. Jenelle, you rock! The cake I got was a hit and I'm sad I don't have a photo to show for it. But it was a chocolate/peanut butter ice cream cake with mini ice cream cones on top and it read "Happy 25th Birthday Andy-Roo"
We had close friends and the fam there which turned out wonderfully! Andrew deserves a night all about him and I was finally able to successfully do that!
Happy 25th Birthday Babe!!!
