Surprise! Sort of...

Yesterday was my birthday. It started out not being the greatest day ever...I wasn't working, but Grant was, so that meant that I was pretty much by myself for most of the day (except a few hours of babysitting in the morning). I went shopping, which is always good. We met with some guy about putting our house on MLS. I was supposed to go to dance class, but I just wasn't feeling like I wanted to go. Grant and I were going to ride together, because he had a meeting to go to at the same time as my class.

Well, when the MLS guy left, I told Grant I wasn't going to dance. He looked very upset. He proceeded to tell me that I "have" to go, and it would mean alot to him if I did. I then told him that it absolutely in no way had any sort of effect on him, whether I go to dance class or not. We kept this up for a minute or so, then finally he said, "But there's cake at Megan's house!" At this point, I think I had forgotten it was my birthday, so I was very confused, and had no idea what he was talking about. He went on to explain that he felt bad about him not being there all day for my birthday, and so he wanted to make it up to me by having a little spontaneous get-together with some friends. Well, I rushed around the house, and got ready for dance and my not-so-surprise birthday party.

I'm so glad I did. Summer and I had a great time at dance class, learning a new way-cool dance. Then the get-together at Megan and Andy's house was a blast. Summer and OJ were there, Megan and Andy (of course), SixBit and the kids came, and Pinky ended up coming, even though I didn't think she would be able to!

Pinky got me these beautiful sunflowers that had been dyed red. I put them in my vase, and they're just gorgeous! Summer got me a monkey sippy-cup, which is like the best present ever! Grant's gift is yet to be seen, so more on that later, but he did make sure the cake said "Happy 260th birthday," so thanks for that!

So, a big, big thank-you to Megan (who doesn't have a blog, but needs to start one!) for helping Grant plan this very spontaneous party, and for picking up the cake, and decorating her house, and putting out snacks. I had a great time, and that one hour made up for the rest of my day in a big way!

    Happy 260th!!! That was so sweet of Grant, what a great husband! (not the 260th part, but the party was really thoughtful)
