happy birthday baby. today is you day! I give thanks that our paths crossed and you picked me to love, honor and protect. The rest is just a piece of cake. That is quote I love that is just you.
When i look back today at all 38 yrs of b days we have shared together… Humm one sticks out in my mind. After year of almost pulling off surprise parties for the dreaded big ones. Lets face it i think you knew. The most memorable one was a true surprise.
My girl friend and I have hubby’s who share the same month. We put our heads together and a few bucks planned the ultimate adventure. With the help of her family we planned to kidnap our guys for dinner. You are thinking no biggy right, wrong it was in Santa Cruz. We live in southern California. We packed belongings weeks ahead sent them with family visiting. We bought airline tickets. Booked rooms had her Sis in Santa Cruz deliver luggage, decorate hotel room and fill ice chest with the boys fav beverage Beer. All was set now the day arrived.
Today we picked boys up in our car drove to a few spots for drinks. Just when they thought this was it we would move on. The last stop was the airport we pulled up and they were puzzled. No luggage we can’t be going anywhere. We laughed it off told just a drink (pre 911) they bit. Few minutes later they paged the boys to a gate. We boarded the plane. Priceless
Upon boarding the plane we were able to convince everyone to play along. They still had no idea where they were going just up. We landed in San Jose and the light bulb started to come on. They still think this is dinner. A cute limo driver held up their name and we were off. Destination unknown.
We arrived at friends sister for drinks then off to dinner. After dinner they thought we were headed home not we pulled up at hotel again Priceless. The gig was up when we checked in but the memory lives forever.
We had the best time making memories. That is what life is about so today is you day Hubby.
I will make his favorite request enchiladas rice and beans. Birthday pie and honor the man who picked me to spend the rest of oursweetlifetogether.
What special memory do you have?
