{WEEKEND FUN: Surprise!}

Well this weekend was full of excitement, to say the very least. I have been planning a surprise birthday party for my husband for MONTHS! From getting the invitations out early enough for everyone to make it, to getting the cake just right, I was like a stealth sneaking around planning everything and being a little trickster. Kory's birthday isn't actually until the end of May so I knew he'd have no idea it was coming...Little did everyone else know that it was all a SHAM. Kory knew from the moment I filled out the first invitation that he wasn't getting a surprise party and that we'll celebrate his 35th when it's actually time. The surprise was actually for everyone else, to let them know that we are PREGNANT! We needed a way to trick everyone into coming without sharing our big news and since Kory's birthday was a month away I thought we could feasibly pull it off. Annnnd we totally did! Our friends and family had NO idea!! I had Kor walk in late and had everyone shout SURPRISE! when he walked in(to keep them going). He held the cake in his hands and we immediately yelled SURPRISE! back and revealed the cake to them that displayed we were having a baby! Immediately joy filled the room! There were some of the biggest smiles I have ever seen, the sweetest tears were shed and some of the best hugs ever were received. It was a moment that we will cherish forever. There is not a feeling like this in the world, it's incredible.

There are WAY too many pictures in this post and I am totally ok with that! :) Thank you so much to everyone who made it to the party, it truly means the world to us! I can't wait to continue on this journey and to share more special moments with you all. I'm hoping to keep you updated from time to time on my growing belly, maternity fashion and how this little babe is doing!
