So here’s a dirty little secret I’ve been keeping from the blog:
I’m turning THIRTY on Saturday.
AHHHHH!! Actually, I haven’t been thinking about it much at all. Here’s a tip: If you’re prone to stress about a milestone birthday, plan to get pregnant about 9 months before that day. Then you’ll be too busy worrying about things like insurance and breast pumps to give a crap about your age. Problem solved! I’m a genius.
So I wasn’t expecting anything at all when Brian and I walked into Crossroads for breakfast on Saturday. My parents kept Jack the night before (not unusual) and we had a nice little date night to see What to Expect When You’re Expecting (loved it) at Studio Movie Grill. Anyway, it seemed a little fishy when we walked into the restaurant and Brian told me that my parents were sitting upstairs… because there aren’t any tables upstairs. And then halfway up I see my grandparents, a bunch of my friends, Jack’s friends…
HEY! A surprise party!
So, so sweet… though I think my initial reaction was along the lines of, “WHAT THE HELL? WHY DIDN’T YOU TELL ME SO THAT I COULD HAVE SHOWERED OR SOMETHING???”
(Such a nice wife I am… let’s chalk that up to pregnancy hormones. Though I was looking pretty scrub-ish.)
Anyway, I wish I’d had my camera on me- but I did manage to snap a few pics with my phone.
Apparently Brian had been planning this for a month. The last surprise party he threw me was for my 19th birthday and involved contraband mimosas in my tiny dorm room. Oh, how times have changed…
So we kicked off birthday week in style. The rest of the weekend was spent getting ready for baby girl: Cleaned out the nursery closet, washed more clothes/burb cloths/blankets, shopped for a coming home outfit. Three more weeks!
Hope everyone had a great weekend! Off to fold tiny laundry.
ALSO- Baby Adeline goes in for her first big surgery tomorrow (Monday). You can read all of the details about the procedures here. Please continue to pray for this sweet girl, her family & the surgical team!
