I think I just spent the past two days simply recovering from the party Saturday night. I wasn't even hungover, just so emotionally spent. I kind of feel like I did after our wedding - so happy that I just can't stop thinking about the night!
Apparently it's been 4+ months in the making! Tingaling came up with the original idea to Joe and after much brainstorming they decided on a party to end all parties at T's house. ALL my friends and family were in on the secret, which explains why no one has been calling for the past month - I thought we were being anti-social, but apparently everyone was afraid they would spill the beans!
I guess I am completely gullible, but I am so glad, because otherwise there would not have been a surprise! We have over 300 photos from the event, but I will only post a few :)
"WTF?!?! Why is everyone here???"
"OMG! There is no party at Lynn Wyatt's? Does this mean I'm not meeting Bon Jovi?"
"Ann! Ree! Bill!" I'm not sure whose name I am screaming but it has to be someone from out of town :)
Poor JJ wasn't sure to make of all the people, and he was up way past his bedtime!
The best sister and friend in the world!
The best husband in the world!
Some dear girlfriends - I loved that the theme was PINK and everyone wore it!
The cutest and best parents in the world!
Fabulous friends from grad school!
I think Joe and Tingaling could make a career of party planning!
Me and my cuties!
Blowing out my birthday candles! Both Joe and Tingaling gave touching toasts, that made me feel, somehow, even more loved than before!
Billy Boo, in the glasses, flew in from NYC!
All told about 60 people attended the party. This is the last photo we took. Obviously it was impossible to get one with everyone in it, but this is a good example. I am still reeling and maintain I am the luckiest girl in the world! And guess what, it's not even my birthday yet ;)!
