Weeks, actually, months of planning went into this past weekend.
Mom turned 5-0! Well, actually, not until the end of December, but we had to make it work.
We decided a while ago, mom would get a HUGE surprise for her 50th birthday. So much so that I couldn’t even mention it here (hi, mom!).
My sister, and step-dad have been hard at work planning, planning and planning.
Meanwhile, my two aunts, my grandparents and I sneakily flew into Houston Friday evening. (And, that stupid snow really delayed our plans).
Saturday, my sister convinced my mom she HAD to meet her to “discuss something.”
Little did she know, we were all waiting at the restaurant for her.
And, she finally saw us. SURPRISE! She was floored. She asked a million questions. “How did you get here? Where did you stay? When are you leaving?”
SURPRISE! Mom with her sisters and mom.
I would say it was quite the success. I did miss my girls and Mr. Serious terribly, but hey, your mom only turns 50 once, right?
