When we got to Rachael's, I was wondering if we were at the wrong house by mistake, because the house was dark. We walked into her front porch area, and I was peeking in the windows, trying to figure out why I didn't see anyone. Then I saw some people on the stairs inside, so I opened the door to a very loud "Surprise!!" from all my Winers friends!
I was stunned for a minute, trying to figure out what was going on, when I realized that they had turned it into a surprise party for my 30th. I was completely amazed when they told me that Jerry even knew about it, because he wasn't acting suspicious at ALL. Normally, he can't keep a surprise for anything--he gets way too excited, and he always gives it away (even unknowingly). But I had absolutely NO CLUE at all that they were planning this.
They even had 30th party decorations, and a birthday cake; they chose some of my very favorite wines, and my favorite snacks (hello graham crackers with peanut butter and chocolate chips!!):
|How awesome is that cake?!|
|It's the details... ;)|
