Good Morning, Bloggy Friends!
So, I didn't mention this in yesterday's post, because I didn't want to let the secret out, but I woke up yesterday morning and decided to throw a spur of the moment surprise part for Alan's birthday! It left me a little frazzled most of the day, because I threw it on myself so suddenly. I wasn't the most prepared party planner on the block, but I had Nicole's help and together we really pulled off a party to be proud of!
About seven of our dearest friends showed up to surprise the socks of of Alan when he arrived home from work. It was so cute! I have never thrown, or been to, one of those parties where people actually jump out and yell "surprise!" I've only seen them in the movies, but after last night, I can officially say I've done it!
It was so much fun. I really appreciate the fact that our friends came on such short notice. It is such a blessing to be in Philadelphia less than a year, and already have such kind, dependable friends. If you're reading, I really appreciate it guys! Alan really appreciated it, too - well, once he got over the initial shock. It was great fun and so good to see everyone.
I have attached a slideshow of pictures below. I believe I'll post a video soon as well. I have to run now, though. We are about to get ready and hit the road for NYC. I'm excited to go back!! Have a great afternoon.
P.S. Alan wants me to express his gratitude for all the kind birthday wishes yesterday. Thank you all. He wishes you could have all been at the party!! I do too.
