best birthday party

This last weekend  was a girls weekend for me but I decided to show up late for it on Friday because I didn't want to miss Kayleen's surprise 30th birthday party.
The is what the door looked like when you got there.
And they had all of her favorite foods. I didn't get a picture of the soft pretzels, but when I saw them it made me smile. Her friends know her so well (and love her so much, obviously).

Please notice the beef jerky:) I ate half the bowl of Swedish Fish.

The girls hard at work getting everything together. Sarah (who is in the glasses and also one of my favorite instagramers) came all the way from Kansas to surprise her. It was a good surprise.

While all the girls were in the kitchen the men could be found in the Arizona room

I never got a good picture of Kayleen at the party and I wish I had brought my real camera. This is her hugging Sarah.

And as Jaime predicted, she cried. 
The best part was the roast. I loved hearing stories about and seeing pictures of Kayleen. It made me love her even more and that was so fun to learn more about her childhood. I decided I want to do that for all my friends that I have now that I didn't know as kids.


  1. freaking awesome! i live for beef jerky. looks like a good time!

  2. Looks like a great way to greet her 30th year of life. and I want to hear more about your girls weekend, sounds like a blast!

  3. Thanks, Deb. It was the best most overwhelming feeling ever. I'm stealing your pics since we have zero from that evening.
