So about 1 year ago, I decided that for Jon's 40th birthday that I was going to do a surprise party. So for the past year I have been thinking about what to do and who to invite. It's amazing how fast a year goes and one day the party is here.
I had to make up a story that we were going out with friends so I could get Jon out of the house and not doing training with his new dog Kliff. So I invited friends from his past and a lot of good new friends. I was a nervous wreck all day hoping that everything would work out. So I told him that we would be meeting our friends to eat at 7 p.m. So Jon wanted to leave our house at 6:15 so I was coming up with excuses on how not to leave until 6:30, since I told everyone to be at my parents house at 6:30. So I could not take it any longer and we left at 6:25. Unfortunately we hit all of the lights green from our house to my mom's. That has never happened before. When we got there at 6:35 I noticed one of our friends just running into my mom's house. Jon started freaking out thinking someone was in trying to rob my mom. He goes into the house and talk in his loud voice..WHO IS THAT LADY IN A FLOWER SHIRT THAT JUST RAN INTO YOUR HOUSE. He found my mom coming up the stairs and says it again where did that lady go that ran into your house. My mom had no clue what to say, so I just said take our stuff downstairs so we can go. He walked downstairs and go the surprise of a lifetime. He had no clue that I was planning this party. He got what he wanted, lots of black balloons and friends to celebrate.
