Surprise Party & Sneak Peek

This weekend my husband threw me a surprise birthday party (brunch) that he has been planning since this past April!  I was completely and utterly surprised because honestly, my birthday is the last thing on my mind these days.  But, it was the sweetest thing and I am completely humbled by all his effort, and the distances friends and family traveled to make the event.

Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of pictures (as it was yesterday) and am waiting for friends to email me, but my blogger friend Casey, from Loft and Cottage was there and it was so fantastic to see her and her boyfriend, Michael!  So, I have this picture of us (from her post this morning)!!

Thanks Casey!! Doesn't she look so cute?

My husband did all the planning, made the invites, flowers and vases (he scoured etsy and got inspired) with input from his sister.  I told him he should consider a career change and go into event planning. :)

Yes, I'm turning 40 next month (two days after this baby is suppose to arrive!)

In other news, here is a sneak peek of our newly renovated bathroom.  I should have final pictures to post by the end of the week.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!!  Happy Monday!


  1. Oh, Happy early Birthday, Fran! What a wonderful surprise!! Your husband did a fabulous job - maybe I should forward this post to my husband to give him some ideas. And your bathroom looks fabulous! What a fun and exciting time for you and your family!

  2. Wow... I'm so glad you were surprised! It sounds like it was a lovely party. Good job, Kevin and Happy Birthday Fran!

    How can you leave such a beautiful bathroom behind? Looking forward to seeing more.

  4. What a fun surprise! Happy birthday to you:) Can't wait to see your bathroom pics--already lovin' what I'm seeing!

  5. Fran, it was so great to see you Sunday and finally meet Kevin! And to catch up a bit before you leave us for adventures in Vienna, and with new baby! In the meantime, I'm looking forward to seeing more of the bath redo and all your changes in the house!

  6. Happy Birthday! What a sweet, sweet hubby to do that for you! Can't wait to see the full completed bathroom :)

  7. Happy (early!) birthday, what a sweet gesture by your husband to plan you such a great surprise.
