A Look At Our Week
Finally! The blog I have been waiting to write! About a year ago my nieces came to me and asked me to help them plan a surprise 25th anniversary party for their parents, my sister and brother-in-law. For the last six months party planning has been in full swing! Each trip to my moms has been spent crafting, planning, picture hunting and video making.
Saturday afternoon was the party and some way, some how we managed to keep it a surprise! Everything went just as planned with the party and it was definitely a huge success!
My sister is the one who is always doing for others, whether it’s something for her kids or something for my mom, she’s the one we can always count on to be there. Her husband is right there with her doing whatever needs to be done. It sure feels good to be able to do something for them for a change!
Our travels began Wednesday. We met friends in Johnson City, TN for lunch at our most favorite bbq restaurant. Great food and great friends are the perfect mix! After lunch I headed to my moms to begin party prepping! My guy visited a few local stores before returning home. The original plan was that Cutler would meet him at our house on Friday and they would travel together to the party. Apparently Mother Nature had different plans! After a few checks of the forecast I quickly decided it was best for the boy to stay at home!
This meant my guy could come join me earlier than planned, we really do not do well when we’re apart! He came up Thursday evening. We could not let my sister know we were in town so we stayed with my Aunt on her beautiful farm.
Thursday and Friday were spent prepping food for the party. My aunt and her 2 friends catered my sisters wedding 25 years ago and when my aunt heard about the anniversary party she offered to help cater it again. She is amazing! My hero! She totally wore me out and never stops! I could sit and watch her and learn from her all day long.
When we left home Wednesday afternoon we had about an inch of snow on the ground. Snow means soups and puzzles around here! We are stocked up and ready for our big snow that is falling now! 2 puzzles (1,000 pieces & 2,000 pieces) and 2 soups! And tons of party leftovers! We are ready to eat ourselves through this snowstorm!
Another week with no selfies of me and my guy! He was such a trooper through all of this party planning, dramas and party day. He was my go-to guy today. Whatever I needed he was there to help! Thanks for being my guy! He found a cute friend at my aunts house … I can’t decide who is the cutest!
And a few family pics:
Have a great week! XOXOXO
