Today just so happens to be my sweet mama's 50th birthday [HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!].
Well, for the past month my sister, step dad, and I have been planning her a surprise party. We surprised her with a spa day in Las Vegas last Monday so she had no idea we had anything else in store until this past Saturday night.
My step dad, Jim, took her out for a romantic dinner while my sister, Andrew, and I set up for the party.
Side note: I had to throw all the decorations out my window before hand because she wouldn't get out of the living room!
We invited around 25 of her closest friends and family to celebrate her big day. We had the party in a private room at a local bar called Beantown Tavern.
When she walked in she was so surprised. I was scared she was going to kill me, claiming she hates surprise parties, but she ending up bursting into tears and enjoying every single second of her night! Words can't do the night justice, so I will just leave you with some of the pictures. I took nearly 200 pictures but I will spare you a little bit.

My mom is so very blessed to have such amazing friends & family that came out and made her night so special. I love her more than anything in this world and I hope she had the best birthday she could have ever dreamed of having. If you read this and you were there, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for filling all of our hearts with so much love and joy. There were tears, hugs, and so many laughs. Pictures can only show so much, but it was such a beautiful and amazing night.
Cheers to you Mama, you truly are fabulous at 50!
