What the h*ll? When did that happen?
Not to get overly nostalgic or anything, but it was yesterday we were just friends sitting in the Armes Building Wind Tunnel studying for Bio.
Fast forward (literally) 17 years and we have been married for 14 years, have two kids and one of us has turned the big 4-0.
Brad would never say he wanted a big birthday party. He would have been quite content to have a quiet dinner at home. But this is no ordinary birthday and attention must be paid.
A month or so before his birthday I contacted one of my friends who has a bakery side business she runs out of her home. She was the one who saved me at Christmas and did all my baking! I told her what I wanted and knew she would knock it out of the park and she totally did.

Ordinarily I would have done all the prep work myself (veggie trays, appetizers...etc). This time, nope. I bought everything and you know what? It was worth every penny.

As a side note, I should mention that my friend David is wearing an ACDC t-shirt because he thought our party was a redneck theme party that required guests dressing up. It wasn't of course, but it was pretty funny when both he and Sean came decked out in both jorts and camo.

As per usual with our group, beer pong manifested. We managed to get newbies into the mix. I am terrible at the game, which is odd considering how much we play it. This go round we also added a portable corn hole game which sounds lame, but it's actually pretty fun.

It was probably one of our best celebrations ever and I'm so thankful that everyone came out to celebrate Brad. He's the most standup, reliable good friend that anyone could ever have and add to that being the most supportive, kind and loving husband? I'm a lucky girl.
Happy Birthday B.
