I was fine turning 30 without a party.
I even planned to celebrate it in combination with my sister’s birthday in two weeks.
But little did I know that when I showed up at Nancee Lee’s house on Thursday night to “work on Thanksgiving table decorations” that my entire family was waiting inside for me.
Thanks to my sneaky husband, siblings, parents, and grandparents, I was definitely surprised.
We had a BBQ dinner, 30 gifts to celebrate 30 years, and mocha chocolate chip cheesecake (thanks Holly and Mom).
I will be honest. I might have teared up several times. I felt very special.
Frightened and overwhelmed, but special too.
I hope I can still sit cross legged at my next milestone birthday.

The funniest part of the whole event was that before I headed to Nancee Lee’s house I thought “maybe I will just put on my pjs before I go, she won’t care. And then I will be comfortable for our crafting.” But then I got distracted and never put them on.
And boy am I glad that I did not show up for my own surprise party in my pjs.
That would have been a little too memorable for a 30th birthday.
