Well, well, well.. Today is my 26th birthday and I just have to say, CHEERS!!

My amazing, sweet, sneaky, hunk of a husband threw me a surprise birthday party on Saturday and to say I was surprised would be an understatement. I’ve never felt more loved than I did walking up the steps to my party and seeing all my friends and family there. My niece Scout yelling “suh-pwise, Bwookie!” was the icing on the (birthday) cake. Pun intended.

I will save you all from the ugly crying face pictures my Mom took (also, thanks to her for taking care of the food!). Do they capture my emotion? Yes. Do they capture my best angle? Definitely not. Those will go in the vault to never be used. Ever.

How Ryan pulled this off, I have no idea! But he did an amazing job and I am so lucky to have a man who loves me and cares enough to do this for me just to see me happy. Throwing a party with my closest friends and family was the very best present I could’ve asked for.

And for entertainment purposes, here are some of the classier pictures that were taken from Saturday. Gosh, I love my friends.

The booze is just starting to hit…

Maria didn’t get the memo

A somewhat decent picture


Dessert : )


My Scouty.. Just winkin’ for the camera.


This was by far the best birthday I’ve ever had and I couldn’t be more thankful to everyone who helped make it happen. Never in a thousand years did I think I was worthy of a surprise birthday party! If this is how 26 starts, I can’t wait to see how the rest of it goes!
