Y’all may remember me mentioning a while back that my parents are throwing my darling brother a 40th birthday bash later this month. The theme of his party is… “Life begins at 40”, and even though Marcel and I won’t be able to be there- I’ve been doing the best that I can to help make this party a huge success.
Mom left the invitations up to me, and I was able to design invitations that I thought my brother would get a huge kick out of- Earlier last week, mom sent out the invites, and sure enough, I received an email from my little bro letting me know how much he loved the invitations.
He probably thinks that the fun stops there. … ahhh he should know me much better than that- Several days ago, I ordered a banner for mom to hang, and either later on today or tomorrow, I have plans to design a ‘special birthday T-Shirt’ that mom is going to insist that he wears. It’s going to be this hilarious photo that I have of him in the center- with various color types and fonts with the number 40 all around. He’s going to love it-
Mom has a few tricks up her sleeve as well, and this weekend I plan on writing a list of ’40 things’ about my brother, that mom can read aloud to him at the bash. I want them to be funny, so I’ve got to get the creative juices flowing.
I really wish we were going to be there, but we’ll definitely be there in spirit.
If I can get permission from my bro- I will share a few photos with y’all after the fact.
Right now, I hear a rumbling in my tummy, which tells me it’s DINNER TIME!
My Gratitude List for May 7, 2009.
Today I’m Grateful For:
- Being able to find the exact plant that my mom-in-law mentioned the other day- to give to her for Mother’s Day.
- That in spite of the dark clouds- the rains have subsided.
- A piece of sunshine in the mail- a letter from my friend Caroline.
- Unexpected blessings.
- An email from one of my favorite people with ultrasound photos, and photos of her expecting. She’s almost 7 months. I’m so excited.
