I am usually VERRRY HARD to surprise.
But, I must admit defeat when I do get a surprise because I think that no one can get anything past me...
Someone has to do A LOT of lying and sneaking to trick me!!!
I had one of the best surprises of my life on Friday afternoon.
My husband (who is not the sneakiest of sneakers) had been plotting for months to throw me a little surprise party.
I was sitting in my driveway waiting on Jeff (yes, I was in the car...angry that my husband was not YET HOME!) when I see this car drive in with people who I have not seen in 2 YEARS, since we moved to California from Texas.
Out jump my friends Rob and Misty!
Aren't they the cutest ever!?
(I made them pose by this tree...very high school yearbook, right?)
I could only scream (very loudly!) because I was so confused and shocked and emotional and in utter disbelief that my friends we standing in my driveway!!!!
They SOOOOO got me! I was COMPLETELY SURPRISED!
Here is Misty in my dining room... I just had to snap a photo to be sure this really was happening!
So then, after shaking and staring at them for a long time, we headed out to my friend's house for "dinner".
Jeff had arranged for her and her sweetie of a husband to come as well! She helped with the food and decorations and also helped Jeff pull off one of my big surprise presents!
Okay, so not all my photos came out, so I took a few more so you could see what I got...but the biggest surprise was from Jeff. He and Cheryl conspired with Jenny and Aaron from Everyday is a Holiday to make a Sugar*Sugar sign for my studio...
Here is when I opened it... TERRRRRRIBLE picture of me, but you get the idea...
SHUT UP!!!!!! Is this from??? HOW??? When??? WHAAAA????
Here is a better pic of the piece by Jenny and Aaron... I love it SOOOOO MUCH!!!
Look at these fluffy cuppycakes, WITH SPRINKLES!!!!!
They also sent along a plaque with the "Celebrate Everyday" print... I ADORE IT!! I couldn't get any better, I swear!!! You can get one for yourself HERE!
Guys! You don't KNOW how excited I am!! I have always wanted a piece of their work, and to think that they made something JUST FOR ME!!! I'm DYING!!!!!
THANK YOU SO MUCH JENNY AND AARON! I CAN'T WAIT TO MEET YOU IN PERSON AND KNOCK YOU DOWN WITH A HUGE HUG!!!!!!
