Surprise Party

So, I have been keeping a secret from all of you. It was very hard but I couldn't risk my husband finding out that I had been planning a SURPRISE PARTY for his 25th Birthday!

The party has finally occured, so it is safe for me to share what a great time we had! My husband is not a big fan of birthday parties, so I was surprised two weeks ago when he said that he wouldn't mind having a birthday party for his 25th birthday this year. I didn't say anything to my husband when he revealed this to me, but instantly texted my mom. A plan for a surprise party was born!

I spent the entire day this past Saturday running around with my mom for supplies and decorations. We ordered 8 pizzas and I got a half sheet cake for the party. There was a huge antipasta salad and some delicious buffalo chicken dip. It goes without saying that we will be ending 2012 with a couple extra pounds thanks to all of the awesome holiday parties and now, this birthday party. However, I've got big plans for 2013 and these couple pounds will not be around for long!

The final party of 2012 was a New Years Eve Party at our friend's house. There was a lot of food, fun games and friends. It was a great way to end 2012!

Did you attend or host a New Years Eve party this year?


  1. What an awesome surprise! Hope you really did enjoy yourselves-those few pounds, you're right, will be gone soon! You are doing amazingly well and your journey will come to an end sooner than you may ever have expected!

  2. Keep up the great work! Its great that you got to have so much fun time with friends and family over the Holiday. The pounds will be off in no time at all! (Oh wait... isnt your brother's birthday party next weekend... hahaha... more cake to work off!)

  3. What a fun birthday party for your husband that must've been! He won't forget that effort of yours for a very long time. Your extra pounds will be melting off soon in 2013 I know! Way to go!! And I know you can do it!

  4. Financial surprises early in life are generally less devastating because you have time to recover, learn from any mistakes, and move on. But a major financial surprise during or near retirement may have more severe consequences.

  5. To ensure also that no one slips about the surprise party, you should call or personally talk to the guests if it's clear that the party is indeed a surprise.Großer TeddyBär
