The day of the party, I got nervous. What if Maria decided she was too tired to come over? Or what if for once, she was early, and we weren't ready? The other girls made it at the time we had discussed and we decorated my dining room with purple streamers, balloons, and placed the food out. We had loaded tater tots, buffalo chicken dip, jello, and cupcakes! Yes, we're all about the junk food!
I had asked Maria to text me when she was on her way so I would know when to expect her. When she walked in, it seemed like it took forever to get her to actually come in the house. We had to wait for Connor to come in, then my dog ran out into the hallway, and then Maria yelled at my dog for liking Ashley more than her (not knowing Ashley was standing in my dining room). When she finally stepped into view, we all yelled surprise and her reaction was typical for Maria. Her exact words were "What the F*ck?!?" Apparently she has never had a surprise party thrown for her, so she was very touched.
We took some pictures, ate tons of food, and chit chatted for a while. The birthday girl left my apartment wearing half of the decorations, so I would call the afternoon a success! I will leave you with some pictures!
All the girls!
