Surprise Party | Mom turns 57

It’s HUMP DAY!!!!! Happy middle of the week! :)

October 18, 2017 was my Mom’s 57th Birthday and I decided out of nowhere that I was going to gather her favorite people for dinner at her favorite restaurant. I threw my Mom the most successful SURPRISE birthday party I’ve ever thrown (If you don’t know me, I love entertaining and I get a thrill out of throwing surprise parties! It’s one of my best qualities! Haha) My dad and I came up with the most ridiculous lies ever to divert her attention to the party we were throwing her hours later. It was awful because my Father and I are HORRIBLE liars.

One of my best friends, Josh, and I arrived in Canton early Wednesday morning so that my brother could work on my car. A huge shout out to Travis Jackson for helping me brilliantly fix my muffler and another shout out to my baby brother who put new breaks and rotors on my car, along with multiple new lug nuts. I am forever indebted to you both! We allowed my brother to work on the car, while my Dad, Josh and I went to happy hour at our favorite pub. My mother had no idea we were in town and we went to surprise her at home before going to the restaurant for dinner. I had to break the news to her that she wasn’t getting steak that night, but rather sushi for dinner. She was delighted!

Everyone was supposed to be at the restaurant around 6:30p, we were to show up at 7. It actually worked out beautifully, everyone was in place and ready to go when my Mom, Dad, Josh and I walked in. She first saw my brother and then realized everyone was screaming “HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SANDY!”. 26-30 people showed up for my Mom’s birthday and I couldn’t have been happier!

Enjoy the images, they’re “surprisingly” beautiful and full of emotion!

Happy Birthday, Mom! I love you!
