As I mentioned in yesterday's post, we threw my mom a little surprise birthday party last weekend at my aunt and uncle's lakehouse on Lake LBJ. We always love going out there, so getting my mom on board to have a little "mother/daughter birthday getaway" wasn't the least bit hard. She thought we were just going out for a night and it would be pretty low-key.
While we were out on a boat ride, everyone showed up and got ready for the big surprise. I was furiously texting back and forth on the down low making sure everything would be timed right....and thankfully, it did!!!! She was so truly surprised and loved it!
And do you know what? I think I've got myself a new motto that I'll share with you:
I believe EVERYONE should be thrown a surprise birthday party at least ONCE in their life!
Hopefully in the future, I can make this statement true for loved ones in my life. There aren't many other ways for a big group of friends and family to make one feel most special.
Have YOU ever had a surprise party thrown in your honor?
