Surprised! again.


There's nothing I enjoy more than having my family and friends together.
Saturday I was surprised with a 2nd b'day party that brought together some very special people in my life. Let me tell you about my day.
I had planned on going to the mall with Sara, Alynne and Candace at 11:30, and then Kyla was to meet me there where we'd continue on with my afternoon with her, which was her b'day present to me. Apparently I'm easily fooled. Instead, I was whisked away to Angles Salon for pedicures with the girls, then I was treated to a facial and a massage. Not a bad way to spend the day!
Kyla had told me that she'd pick me up after, but instead I was greated by my brother who lives in Brooks, Alberta and I definitely didn't expect to see at the Midtown Plaza on a Saturday afternoon.
So, Rob gives me a note from Ky and money saying you have this much time, you need to buy a dress or if you have a dress, you need to accessorize it, GO! Hello, could this day get any better? I love shopping! So I easily picked out a cute blue polka dotted dress.
Robbie then took his sweet time, driving around and leading me astray. I could not figure out where we were going. He later blindfolded me and led me into my house, upstairs to my room where I was instructed to have a bubble bath and get glammed up. I got dressed in my new attire, my makeup was done and Kyla did my hair. I had no freaking clue what we were doing, many things were going through my mind :
1-Knowing Rob was home, I figured Mom and Dad wouldn't be far, so I thought we were going for a nice family supper
2-I figured the girls would be in on it, having taken part in the morning's activities.
3-I also thought that maybe we were going to get formal family photos done.
4-Oh, and I'm not going to lie, it also crossed my mind that perhaps NKOTB were back in town to do a private show for me. Haha.
Anyway, after I was all done up, I was once again blindfolded and brought to the basement where I found great friends, all formalized and pretty as well. We visited and had wine and cheese and then were later escorted upstairs for a fantastic catered meal, cake and toasts that made me cry more than I think I did at our wedding.
Overall, the night left me feeling so loved and blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life. I was deeply touched by the words said by my friends and will never forget this wonderful night.
Life is great & 30 is proving to be not so bad afterall.

  1. What an awesome surprise! I wish my family was creative enough to come up with such a fantasic party! Alas, I have to plan my own :-)

    I'm curious if Kyla ended up saying her toast? Or did someone else read it for her?

  2. Nope, she didn't. Must be the ugly cry that us Park's have been gifted with :) But she did tell me in private what they meant. It was very sweet. 2 flowers b/c I'm her sister and her friend


Have a lovely day!
