I have joked with my friends and family that I married an old man. He talks like an old man, sometimes dresses like an old man (wearing his Pop's straight billed caps) and even goes to bed early like an old man. Today my old man is 30 years old! I'm so proud to be his old lady!
We don't have any big plans today, but I did throw him a pretty slammin' SURPRISE 30th birthday party a couple of Friday's ago. Unfortantly, I don't have the pictures yet because I forgot my camera and had to use my friends. He is supposed to send them to me, but we shall see :).
The most obvious clue was the day of the party. I went ahead and bought another pack of hamburgers just to be on the safe side. I put them in our freezer and had it on my list to grab. I pulled them out of the freezer and set them on the counter. My dad and I headed back to the park to get everything set up and he was going to start grilling. I had to run to Kroger at the last minute for condiments and Gary called while I was in there. I decided not to answer because he thought I was looking at baby material with Rachel and it wouldn’t be anything for me not to answer. Well, then he called again when I was pulling into the park. I answered and he said what are these burgers on the counter? I was shocked!! I had no idea what to say!! HUH?! Burgers? What burgers? (that’s literally what came out of my mouth). He said I don’t know there is a pack of burgers sitting on the counter. I then paused and thought to myself think Kimberly think you are almost home free!!! Finally it came to me, “Oh yeah those are Lee and Rachel’s. Rachel wasn’t going home and she just put them in our freezer. Give them to Lee when he comes to pick you up for Frisbee golf (random way to get him to the park).” He replied, “Oh ok.” Good thing we have friends that this wouldn’t be completely unnormal to happen. I immediately call Lee and tell him about the burgers and tell him to act like he knows about them. WHEW!! At that point we were HOME FREE!!! WHOO HOO!!!
Gary Wayne, I hope you had a great birthday party and I hope you have a great day today!! Happy 30th birthday to the smartest, funniest man I know!!
