Planned Parrrrrty Surprises

How confident am I that my husband never reads my blog?

Confident enough to tell you that I don’t have time for a proper post today because I’m rushing around, trying to get ready for his 40th birthday surprise party on Sunday. Today's my only day to get stuff done without him noticing, so I've got to get moving.

A few party numbers first:

1 bachelor pad located on the golf course, courtesy of his brother.

35-45 golfer buddies.

2 food suppliers: Me and my mother-in-law.

1 big keg of beer and additional beverage choices.

1 really big pirate picture of my husband on a really big poster board, suitable for signing.










Hope your weekend is as fun as mine!

  2. How cool. That is exactly the kind of surprise party my husband would like - a golf one. :)

    Have a fun time and a great Labor Day Weekend!

  3. Wow. You're a much nicer wife. When my hubby turned 40 I got him a coffin.

    It was a gag, and he laughed. Plus he was gracious enough not to do the same for me when I turned 40 five years later.

    Happy Birthday to your hubby.
