thank you for the birthday greetings & wishes! my day was filled with family, friends, and lots of good food!
to my surprise, i woke up* to our bedroom filled with a web of streamers! check this out:
the streamers & balloons were my daughters idea – but husband had to do the work! he worked 12:30-2:30am to get this all done! on instagram he said,
here’s some friendly advice:
1) putting tons of streamers up in pitch dark is extremely hard and probably quite amusing to someone watching! #decoratingfordummies
and 2) DON’T start by putting your lowest streamer up first #soreback
the tiara was sela’s idea!
two of my kiddos confused mother’s day with my birthday on my homemade cards – i loved it!
the after-party! these two munchkins jumped from the top of my headboard & flew through the streames to tear them down!
it was a beautiful day, my heart is still swelling with all the love.
* are you curious as to how husband did all those steamers without waking me up? the evening before, he brought me a tall glass of water + tylenol PM. he said, “i just want you to sleep really good. sleep-in, don’t wake up early with the kids – I’ll get them to school/etc/etc.” that alone, was the BEST GIFT EVER! but… that’s how he did it. drugged me! ha!

I love those streamers, what great family team work!
Sleep-ins are the BEST presents.
I forgot to write on your birthday entry, but that blog entry title is something else, it looks fantastic great work!
How funny! And I literally lol’d at your husband drugging you.
Happy Belated Birthday Jane!!!! I love the family celebration 🙂
What a great hubby! Love that he “drugged” you haha
I am rolling that your hubby drugged you! Such a good plan…and what a sweet thing to do for you! So glad you had such a nice day!
Wishing you a very Happy Birthday…36 was such a special year for me and I hope it will bring you much love, laughter, and good health!
Ha! That’s hilarious. That was literally my first thought….”how did she not wake up?!?” That’s a sweet/hilarious story. you’ll be forever suspicious of “just want you to sleep in” stories from now on. You look lovely! Happy bday
you go all our for your family’s birthday’s so i’m so glad they did the same for you!
Aww that’s so nice of your hubby & kids to do for you. Hope you had a wonderful birthday!
I too was wondering how you didn’t wake up! Hilarious that he drugged you. Looks like a wonderful b-day spent with family, those are the best!
