Saturday was a great day. Troy will be 40 soon and I threw him a surprise birthday party.

It was a great party.

The best part of it... best part? that might not be the right word... but it's the part of the story that makes this a totally US story.

The week had been crazy...trying to get everything together, trying to cook and make party favors...and just get a hundred things done...all without Troy knowing.

Well, the stress of it, I think, took it's toll...because poor Troy was feeling very neglected by the time Saturday rolled around.

And we had little "tiff".

And it wasn't pretty.

And I felt bad.

And almost spoiled the party.

But..I held it together.

And we had the party.

And Troy came in.

And was surprised.

And then...he hung his head in shame.

best. moment. all. day.

It was a great night.

I wanted 40 to feel special for him.

And I think Troy felt the love.

Getting Troy a gift was so difficult. I could not think of anything. Luckily, Jenn remembered that Troy had always wanted a Flowbee. Which is so true!

So I got one for him. And he was so very happy.

The party favors.

It was a great night.

Congrats on a successful party and keeping the secret - that's so hard to do.

And fun times!
