Surprise.

So I am starting to think I will begin most of our blog entries with talking about how infrequently I update. This time I think I have a pretty good excuse. For at least the last month, my friend Kristen and I have been planning a surprise birthday bash for the men in our life. I never in a million years thought I could pull off any surprise for Greg. Pretty sure he should’ve been a detective.  More on the party later.  Why do I have time to update now? Not only is the party planning over but I wrote this post while in the waiting room since I had a lovely case of bronchitis last week.

3 weekends ago we ventured to INDIANA. We were not only able to help with baby garner-ballard’s baby shower but also were able to celebrate Logan and Vanessa’s wedding! I got to also see Kendra & Misha (surprise visitors) so it made the weekend that much better! Sunday was Greg’s actual birthday so even though we spent 6 hours of it in the car, my family was happy to celebrate with him.

2 weekends ago we had some very special visitors in town- AB, Hen, KP & Jack! Always nice to see family in Pittsburgh because that means we don’t have anything on the agenda. We did make it to the pirates game (and they actually pulled off a W). Double bonus.

Last Friday my parents headed to Pittsburgh and Greg and I went about a “normal weekend”. He and Matt were under the impression we had dinner plans Saturday night and we enlisted their friend Scot to assist with keeping them busy during the day. After Greg left Saturday morning to assist Scot with building his deck, my parents came over and we starting setting up! The plan fell into place perfectly and Greg was very surprised. Huge success.

This past weekend we took it easy and actually had another surprise party to attend. This must be the season of surprises!  Quiet week ahead but Friday we head to the sunshine state to celebrate miss Kenley’s 1st birthday! Very excited to visit with the Gilbertson’s.
