A couple weekends ago marked the birthday of one of my oldest and dearest friends, Cryssie. In honor of this momentous occasion, a little surprise party was being planned on the down low to take place a couple days before her actual date of birth. Imagine our surprise when the birthday girl decides to plan her own shindig for the same night. Gah!
Nevertheless, everyone played into her "plan" and we still managed to surprise the birthday girl later in the evening. And when I say surprise, I mean surprise. She had no idea and this solicited one of the best reactions I have seen, hands-down.
Of course, you can't have a party without cake, or in this case, bright pink cupcakes with hot pink sprinkles. Yes, I was responsible for this explosion of pink.
The night ensued with several rousing games of Catch Phrase which may or may not have resulted in a little visit from apartment security. Only in this crowd would you get a noise complaint for playing a board game. We're that competitive...
In other weekend festivities, on Saturday night, we celebrated the last weekend before Ashley Raydo would become Ashley Williams. The night started with some (and I use that term loosely) celebratory bubbly and a lingerie shower at a hotel in downtown Fort Worth.
We continued the merriment with dinner and drinks at Taverna where I'm fairly certain I consumed several bread baskets. Twas the aforementioned bubbles I tell ya. It was such a fun night and I'm so glad I got to be a part of Ashley's last "single" weekend.
Finally, the weekend concluded with some bonding time with three of my favorite girls on the planet: my seester, Pearl and Dora. Oh, and we also made some rockin' homemade pizzas which we promptly stuffed our faces with.
It was a perfect March weekend and this past weekend was just as busy. I'll be back with the full report!
