a surprise birthday
last friday we had a surprise party for my mother- we'd been planning it for a MONTH! talk about hard secrets to keep.
one of nick's friends, the lovely and most talented John Allred, came to do a private concert for us because my mom just raves about his music. then again, why wouldn't she? he's amazing. but we forgot to tell him it was a surprise party.. so we're all waiting around for my mom to show up and he's like, "wait a second, this is a surprise party?! i thought we were all just standing around!" haha. awkward.
but nonetheless this night was awesome. watermelon cake balls, fresh pina coladas, a mini fruit pizza bar and the cutest lemonade i've ever seen, courtesy of my amazing sister. good music, good family, good friends. and that's the way we spell SUCCESS.
