This was the best non-surprise surprise I've had in my entire life. Will tried to surprise me for my birthday with a visit from Gay & Don from Houston. The surprise part just ended up happening about two weeks early. I was still surprised AND had the bonus of two weeks worth of excitement looking forward to their arrival last Wednesday.
I was so proud of Olivia for thinking to grab my camera out of my pocketbook to snap a picture of Gay and me when we first saw each other in the driveway.
After a quick tour of our (not-so-new anymore) house and a cocktail, we headed to Mr. Friendly's, one of our very favorite restaurants. Our waitress was happy to take our picture - we could not have predicted that she would be so happy that she would take a picture for each course!
It was a delicious meal - one of many that we have enjoyed with the Stricklins ... and one of many that we enjoyed while they were here. To be continued...
