Thanks! I hope she likes it...My birthday is a week after hers, so I can't imagine what she might do to me!

Well, the party has come and gone. Thank goodness.

My sister's best friend and I busted our butts!  Well, really we spent alot of time gossiping...which led to us having to bust it at the end!  The guests started arriving 45 minutes before the party was to start - uh, can you say crap-ola!

My brother-in-law got the wrong person to make the birthday cakes - oops!

The memory cards that I obsessed over - and drove everyone on craftster crazy with - didn't really go over.  Everybody enjoyed looking at them, and talking about how cute they were and reading what others wrote, but weren't really into filling them out.  Probably because their idea of a party is just getting drunk.  Not very easy to write when you can't hold the pen.  I ended up not making an actual book, I just bought a rattan wicker box for her to keep the cards in. Good thing, 'cause she wasn't going to give them back to me to tinker with!

I could go on with a list of catastrophies, but I won't bore you! The most important thing was that my sister was surprised (which is sooooo not easy to do) and she had a really, really good time. I'm just happy that it's over!

Memorial Day weekend, she's getting her big present - a girly weekend in Atlanta with a segway tour of downtown. So, yay!

Thanks to everyone for their input...you're all the best!!

Mmm... Sounds like it was mostly fun anyway. Surprising her must have been a lot of fun. I'm thinking the real fun will be the Segway!
I've been thinking about you.
So how was your birthday?

sactownsue:   Awww. You're the sweetest!

Actually, today is my birthday! The big 3-8. It's been good so far. I slept really, really late - sleep is awesome! (I recently discovered the magic of earplugs...highly recommended!)

My hubby bought me a new purse that I had been lusting after and we are going to my *free on your birthday* (we are such losers!) dinner at my favorite italian restaurant. 

Ooooh, and the bestest present ever - we're going to see Duran Duran on May 17! Yay! My husband surprised me with tickets waaaay back in 2004.  Shortly after he got the tickets, I became the primary caregiver for my mom who had lung cancer. So I couldn't go. Had to give the tickets away - at least I got a t-shirt! If it weren't for Duran Duran, I wouldn't have made it to 38.

I have some mystery gift waiting for me from my sister. I have no idea what it could possibly be. 

Here we are at her party: I'm the brownie, she's the blondie. (We don't really look alike - same oven, different bakers.)


We are planning the Segway trip for Memorial Day weekend.  It should be fun.  There will be incriminating photos - I'm sure of it.

Thanks for thinking of me! It made my day!

So sad... She was lucky to have you. That must have been rough. I'm sure she appreciated it.

Ha ha! My husband is a couple years older than my sister - she's 12 years older than me, he's 14 years older than me.  Our 13th anniversary is the end of this month.  He snores something awful and actually got a procedure done a few years ago to help with it.  It helped for a while, but now it's back. I have a difficult time sleeping anyway, so the snoring was adding to the problem. Hello, ear plugs. The downside is that I can't hear anything while wearing them!

Funny you mention the matching haircuts. I had actually gone to my sister's stylist about 2 days before to fix a horrendous haircut I got about 2 weeks earlier, which was to fix the first in the series of bad haircuts I got about 2 weeks before that!  My hair was about shoulder length before all that started....ugh! Luckily, it grows fast. That's our family talent. We grow hair.
