Coming Home to a Birthday Surprise

I finally made it back in town last night shortly after 11:00. I could hardly keep my eyeballs open to greet Steven at the airport, and I wanted nothing more than to be home and cuddled up with my boys. We don't live more than twelve minutes from the airport, but I'm pretty sure I nodded off about six times before we reached the driveway- thank goodness I had Steven as my driver! When we got home I opened the front door, half asleep with shoes in hand and makeup smudged down my face, and headed straight for the bedroom...

Let me back up a minute: First, remember that our house is still very bare and lacks decoration in most of the rooms - mainly the bedroom. Second, my mom was staying at our house taking care of the dogs while we were out of town.

Anyway, I headed for the bedroom, opened the door, and immediately became wide eyed when I noticed that our bedroom had been completely made over! It was such a wonderful birthday surprise. I honestly had no clue whatsoever what was going on back home while I was out traveling all over the South. My mom has "the touch" when it comes to decorating. Needless to say, our new bedroom looks amazing!

Thank you so much mom & dad for the wonderful birthday surprise and making our house feel a little more like a home. I absolutely love it!

  7. Oh my goodness!! What a great surprise and what wonderful parents! I'm assuming that you got your second or fifth wind and were able to enjoy the new room for at least ten or thirty minutes. I cannot wait until we can get a house and out of this studio condo (we were kind of forced into taking over the lease when the fiance's parents moved suddenly back to Alaska). I'm a little jealous! Welcome home!!!
