Last Minute Ideas get me in trouble, but....


Thankfully I have great friends who come to my rescue in my time of need. When I got an idea about 30 hours before my mom's birthday to have a surprise party - there was no lack of support & enthusiasm about throwing something together. I could not have done it without the support & help & smiles given to me by the ladies in our church ward. Incredible!! Christy was so gracious to let us have the party in her home. She even let me come over at 9:00 the night before & she helped me decorate a few things. It was the only time I could sneak out without my mom suspecting something. She hovered all day long - it was hilarious trying to write e-mails & make phone calls to set things up. All the ladies that came brought a dish to share & everything was so good!! Amy made caramel corn that we all could not stop eating & she made fresh lumpia which my mom flipped over. Alma brought the quiche I so love & Christy's lemon poppyseed cake was delicious!! I was stuffed by the time it was over! Can you believe I have such great women in my life! They will even make birthday cakes for my mom with a last minute request! I love you ladies! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

You are quite the party thrower. Martha Stewart would be put to shame.

Just so you know... my birthday is November 18th. Oh yeah... you live something like 11,000 miles away. Oh well.

Great Pals, Great Food, Great Party, and Great daughter.
