An Incredibly Sneaky Guy!

I happen to be married to an INCREDIBLY SNEAKY GUY!!I'm going to keep this post quick today (It's my birthday and I want to go 'play' - LOL!) but I have to brag about what an amazing liar I'm hitched to. Ha ha ha!

On Saturday, my husband actually managed to surprise me with a HUGE birthday party!!! I'm 30 this year, so I suppose he thought 30 was 'party worthy'.... He's been lying to me for about 4 solid months now getting all the plans straightened out. (I'm so proud! hee hee hee...) He bought all the food, came up with clever lies, invited over 60 people, didn't even tell the kids about it (cause you KNOW they would've blabbed), and managed to not give me the smallest, teenie tiniest hint about what was going on! I had a WONDERFUL time and felt extremely spoiled! (I've never had a surprise party before.... and the whole thing was a bit surreal for me.... I couldn't believe it was for ME!) My mom was there too - and she had created these big poster board thingys with pictures all over them from my entire life! (Yup... some embarrassing ones too.... ha ha!) Needless to say, I felt very loved.

Oh... and for those of you who read my last post.... the party ended up being the 'date' that my husband said he was taking me on. LOL! It was the best 'date' I've even been on! Woohoo!

So.... on my birthday, I want to give YOU guys a little present. Here is a quick page I put together from Kim Broedelet's GORGEOUS new kit called Softly Sweet. Hope you like it!

OH this is the BEST - you sure our husband's are not related? This is something my Miles would do, though he sucks at keeping the secret part... LOL - sometimes I know but I pretend not to, you know? Its so durn cute watching him supposedly 'sneak' around. What a blessing to be surrounded by your loving family as you celebrate your milestone. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

BTW: when they 'sprang' this on you... did even one of your worries or concerns break thru? Nah! These are the good, pure thoughts we are supposed to think on, when we get challenges in our lives. Its the BIG things we can COUNT on that have the power to push all the other things into the distance, where they belong.

Thank you for sharing, both your story and your beautiful QP, Beth. Kudos to your husband.

How fun for you - a surprise birthday party! Belated happy birthday wishes, have a great year.
When I turned 40, my daughters gave me a surprise party - I didn't know or suspect anything about the event. Needless to say, I was shocked, surprised and barely had enough breath left to blow out the birthday candles!!

Thank you very much for sharing this beautiful quick page.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I am such a terrible friend! Actually I have a hard time keeping track of anybody's birthday unless I am married to him or have given birth to them. How lame am I?!?!

I am so glad it was a wondrful birthday for you. You deserve it! And way to go Matt! I am impressed!

I am writing to you to say that my husband also surprised me with a surprise 30th Birthday Party 10 years ago. I was surprised alright. Being a person who does not like surprises, I was shocked and it took me a long time for my mouth to close. I was stunned that he kept it from me. WOW! The part that was special that he did it for me. I had never received such a wonderful gift like that. I count it as one of my favorite memories in my life. You are so blessed to have a great husband. We have keepers! Turning 40 I knew about the party but he had planned it all himself. It was nice to have birthdays to celebrate.
