Super Surprised!

I never thought that Justin would ever organize anything for my birthday. It's so busy at work that usually it comes and goes with a last minute cake and ice cream with family which is always great. This year however he out did himself after some "encouragement" from my wonderful friends. Rachel and Erica told me they wanted to take me out on the 5th because they were going to be out of town on the 11th. I thought that would be perfect since my mom had called the day before to see if the kids wanted to go see Toy Story 3 with her about the same time we would be leaving. Justin would pick them up from her house when he was headed home from dinner with his boys. They picked me up around 5 and we went to the Fashion Show Mall since we never get over there with our kids and we thought it would be fun to go some where different. We shopped for about an hour and then Rachel said she had made reservations at Maggiano's. We headed up to check in. This is when things got a little strange. Rachel walked up to the desk and said, "we are three girls here for DeMille." I thought why does he care that we are girls and why is the reservation under my last name? They walked us over to a booth that wasn't fully set up yet and we stood there a minute and then they sent us back to the front desk where we stood there looking a the pictures that Erica was very interested in. (Weird!!) That was when another waiter came over and said' "Ladies your room in this way." Erica and Rachel take off nearly running while I am left chasing them down asking, "what room?" Yep there were the Rollin's, Boehrer's, Terry's and the Weaver's for my surprise party. There were personalized menu's on the table, balloons and the most perfect cake! The food was awesome as usual at Maggiano's and the company and conversation was fantastic!!! Thanks to all of you who came and who helped Justin get everything organized. It was so much fun. I couldn't ask for better friends!!!
Yep that is my own menu!
