My 27th Birthday



Usually when ones gets surprised at a surprise party, they will stop in their tracks, look a bit stunned, maybe gasp a little, or not say anything. Well...my mom threw me an intimate surprise luncheon with two of my friends and I FREAKED. I didn't have a graceful entrance or that little stunned look on my face...I screamed (loudly), cowered back into the door, ducked, and covered my head, as if something was out to get me! My friends and mom are beautiful, not scary-looking monsters out to get me, so who knows what I was thinking!

I was pleased that my mom gave me this afternoon. I so enjoyed it!! I would love to share moments of our day with you. My mom always puts together lovely tables and I find much delight in taking photos of beautiful things! :) This luncheon was in cheery spring colors: both soft and bright pink and lime green. She served delicious panini sandwiches, spinach salad with a tangy lemon dressing, and strawberries with a super yummy cream cheese marshmallow dip.

The cake was a strawberry chocolate jello cake with homemade ice cream! Mom is lighting all those candles up...


We each got a fun party favor bag with girly stuff to pamper ourselves with...

I absolutely adore these flowers from my incredible friend Melissa! Aren't these so fun and unique?! She did a super job matching them to the party colors as well. And those limes smelled so fresh. ;)

Thanks to all three of you for making me feel important and cared for on my 27th Birthday. xo
