Today is Aloha Friday and gosh how I wish I was on a beach right this very minute.
My question for you today:
Have you ever had a surprise birthday party? Who gave it in your honor and how old were you?
I've had two actually. One when I turned 18 years old and my mom surprised the hell out of me at our home, no less. I still cannot figure out how she pulled that one off. The drinking age was 18 back then, need I say more?
The second one was my 40th and my husband organized this one. I cannot say I was excited about it. Embarrassed is more like it. We were living in a new city, so my friends were new,and I was rather uncomfortable about most of it. I like to be the life of the party, but on my terms. Not to mention the house was not clean and there were some invitees that would take notice to this fact. Plus, I thought I had expressed more than once to him, that's not my thing, it's his. The one huge highlight of the event, my mom and sister drove in from out of town to celebrate with me.
Husbands, if you are going to surprise your wife with a birthday party at your home, please clean the damn house before the guest arrive! Otherwise, she may spend the entire party worrying about the bathroom, the dust, the mess, etc.
