…so we pulled it off. We pulled off a surprise birthday party for my dad! He never celebrates his birthday, and he doesn’t like to have parties in honor of him. However, you only turn 60 once in your life (Don’t tell him I told you how old he is *wink*)! …so my mom and I got sneaky on him. We’ve been planning it for a while now. We finished the invitations, organized the surprise plans, and contacted the restaurant some time ago, and I honestly thought the secret was going to leak out somehow. Over 45 people attended, and even family and friends from out of the state knew about the event. The secret didn’t leak out though, and my dad was completely surprised.
I’m glad that he enjoyed his day. …and I’m even more impressed that he had no idea! If you ever read this Dad, a big HAPPY 60th BIRTHDAY to you!
On another note, I thought I’d pass on some information. One of our goals this year is to live debt-free, minus the mortgage and my school loans of course (that is being paid off currently). Last year, we were able to finish paying off two of my credit cards even though we were in the process of remodeling and buying new furniture. Totally on a roll, don’t you think? 🙂 Now, I don’t use any credit cards at all! If you are in debt, check this out; it may help you in the long run.
Oh, and if anyone needs to print out their holiday photos, I found these codes:
Snapfish – 50 PRINTS FOR 50 PENNIES – Code: NEWYEAR50
Walgreens – $.09 PRINTS – Code: 9CENTS
I usually just get them printed at Costco for $.13 each. They give you the option to print with matte paper, and you only have to wait about an hour or so for your pictures. Besides, it gives me time to shop around Costco, without a credit card of course, hehe.
Will be back tonight or tomorrow for another post including a potential giveaway!
