My son-in-law did an excellent job in carrying off the nearly impossible. My daughter knew that he was taking her to dinner but she didn't know where or what was involved.
So after a day at the spa - -
He carted her off to a matinee movie to kill time. He told her he had dinner reservations for 7:30pm. The caterer is also Terri's accountant. Rather than have the party at a club house she asked if she could host it in her home since Mark wanted to keep it small and intimate. So, a few friends and I helped Mark and Lisa by picking up the usual balloons, tiara, gag gifts, etc.
Mark told Terri she had to be blindfolded because he wanted it to be a full surprise where they were going. She fussed a little about messing up her newly done hair, but she was a good sport. It was funny watching Mark lead her up the walkway.
Once blindfold was removed, we all yelled Surprise and she, of course, teared up! Way to go Mark!
The food was to die for. Now that's how you cater a birthday party! I'm pretty sure I won't be around for her next 50th! Grateful that I got to enjoy this one.
Gotta go get ready for Wednesday Whimsie!
Have a great day and remember to Stitch with a Smile.
