A Surprised Thankyou!

So, I just had to add this on here, that tonight was such a great night.

Full of confusion, surprise, laughs, chats and gratitude.

My dear friend Emily threw me a surprise b-day party tonight. I literally had NO IDEA! I really think that was a first for me. Usually I have some degree of knowledge that a party is at least in the works....but not this time. Emily had planned a girl's night tonight and I really thought that's what it would be.

If only someone had taken a picture of my face. I'm pretty sure my jaw hit the floor. It's funny, because my intial thought was that either when everyone yelled, "Surprise!" They were playing a joke on each person that walked in, or that the person they were saying surprise to was coming in behind me. It really was such a great surprise and such a wonderful party. Is it silly that I kept getting all teared up throughout it?

I am so grateful for my friend Emily and all she does for me. I am so grateful for all the wonderful friends that showed up to the party! It is so good to know that I have people here that care for me just as much as I care about them. Thankyou, all so much for the great surprise, the presents, and especially how loved I feel here in Colorado. I think I just might stay here....for awhile, at least. ;)
Me, (that is, if I were Lucille Ball) being surprised....

Jen, How do you get the pictures down to the bottom of the blog? I hate having all of them at the top, and I can't get them to move. Any suggestions? Love you. Glad you have lots of friends.

haha! I'm glad it was such a surprise! I was really hoping you had no idea. :) Sadly, no one thought to get a pic of your face when you came in. I only have a pic of you blowing out your candles. I'll post it for you. Happy late birthday!
