This past weekend my hubby threw me a surprise graduation party! How freakin’ awesome and sweet is he?! I have NEVER had a surprise party before! First, he took me out on a wonderful date night beforehand. A little pre-dinner shopping at Ross, then a lovely meal at Olive Garden. After dinner we came home, he asked me to flip the light switch and “SURPRISE!” My family and friends were all in my kitchen! So FUN!
Ross is ALWAYS worth a look-see folks. You truly never know what you’ll find in there! Honestly, I would rather dig around in a dingy thrift shop, but I find that I myself poking around the home and baby sections while hubby shops. I did manage to find some baby necessities to check off my list: Munchkin feeding spoons exactly like these, baby washcloths and hooded towels, AND I found a random set of cotton muslin burp cloths by the boutique brand Aden+Anais with pink cupcakes and fairy print! Tucked behind some bibs and socks towards the floor, I spotted them, the only set! Normally $22 full price, I paid $11.99- get them here. On the way out we browsed the pish posh maternity rack, but I found these awesome teal cropped stretchy pants! They also had the same pair in a fun coral which I may go back for. At $13.99 and 3 months to go, they are probably worth it.
Always one to wear new clothes immediately, my husband says I am like a little kid, I wore them the very next day! Actually, ssshhh, I wore this exact same outfit yesterday to watch the Super Bowl at a friend’s house. I loved the color combo so much, I decided to wear it again today. A trip to the post office and Barnes and Noble to do some baby prep and fashion reading was excuse enough for me to dress up. This time, I added this gorgeous black and white silk infinity scarf, a graduation gift from my friend Tess Vigil, of 50 Dresses. She is having a trunk show this Saturday by the way, and perhaps you can get your own scarf then! Here’s deets on that.
So have you ever been thrown a surprise party? What did you all end up doing for the Super Bowl?
Editor’s notes: This is my hair after I wash it at night and sleep on it. I do not spend a lot of time on my hair. Hence, scheduled a cut this week. 25 Weeks pregnant means about 6 months along. Yes, I realize my legs have gained weight. Yes, that is a sea animal on my blouse. It was from a Diesel collection from 2007 when i worked there part time. I did not get the glowing pregnancy skin. I came across a book I MUST buy called, The Organized Mom.
And this is my hubby mocking me.
