January 2012...Birthday Boy...

This year is going to be one of BIG changes....

Jason turned the big 3-0 on January 19th!!

I wanted to make sure he knew how special he is to me so I threw him a SURPRISE party with both our close family and friends all in on the action.

How I pulled this off without him knowing is short of a miracle...for at least two weeks leading up to his birthday I slowly deep cleaned the entire house. I even got him to make the yard pretty by telling him if he didn't do it I would...of course his reply to the back yard overhaul was, "I would rather wait and do this when we are expecting people over or something." Little did he know we were definitely expecting people and lots of them!! :)

It was all in the plan...that Friday morning I got up as I normally would and got ready for work. Jason always leaves at least 20 minutes before I do so as soon as he was out the door, I called in sick at work. - shhhh don't tell my boss!

I then picked up my Mom and spent the next 10 hours shopping, cooking, and decorating for the festivities. Of course I had to tell a few fibs along the way. Like when Jason called my cell wanting to know why I wasn't answering my work phone. I had to tell just a little white lie and say, "our systems are down and I'm hanging out at my co-worker Adrienne's desk."
Jason was so in the dark with the whole thing that when it came time for him to show up for the party no one had any idea where he was!! He had diverted from my carefully mapped out plan of going to his friend Pete's house after work and then bringing Pete over to hang out. We finally got ahold of him only to find out he was car shopping....making him 45 minutes late to his own party!! When he walked through the door the look on his face was priceless!!!
(I will have to upload pics of that later.)
BIG Thanks to my Mom for helping make it happen, Pete for lying to Jason for the cause, and all the friends and family that came out to show their love and support! We had so much fun eating, visiting, and celebrating with all of you!!
Happy Birthday Jace!! I love you so much!!! XOXO
