The day that I never thought would get here has arrived and in about two hours it will be all be over. Remaining? Bras that support like never before, the teeth whitener editing tool cranked way up on PicMonkey and pants that aren’t convinced they ever buttoned in the first place.
These girls. You see, the very next evening [Thursday] my sister had asked me to go on a little sister birthday date. Okay cool I thought, probably a Target run – maybe Starbucks if we get real feisty and be back home by 8:30-9, NBD. We start driving and she leads me to a waterside restaurant, we walk in and all of those ladies above were sitting there looking all cute-like waiting for my arrival. I cried, I ate cake, I opened gifts [bottles of wine and vodka – it’s like they know me] and the best gift of all, a scrapbook my sister put together with 30 reasons why they love me which of course, had me crying even more.
I left feeling more grateful than I ever have before…and then I walked into work the next morning.
So that had me twirling around like an idiot because hello, it’s magical and no, I’m not removing any of it for a solid 6 months.
Friday evening I was prepped and ready to have a low key dinner out with Shawn and one other couple and that’s when things got a little fishy again. Couple by couple, people just kept showing up at our door, food and drinks in hand and I just kept thinking “but wait? what?” It was about around when the 18th person showed up I finally realized it was a surprise party for me that my husband had secretly planned and we were having a good ole fashioned cookout and hangout session at our house all evening.
For a girl who has never had a surprise party in her life, two nights in a row was a lot to take in, but I mean I’d be willing to do it again if I had to. The rest of the weekend was pretty tame and chill which included boats beer and babes. To cap off the weekend my parents took us out for some meat in our mouths [we like that, I mean I like that. Okay, Shawn likes it too but in the non-sexual way. Never mind, this just got weird] and it was the perfect way to end my 20’s and dive head first into my 30’s.
