I didn't expect quite the reaction that we got, but it sure was priceless!
My BFF from college is...shall we say...eccentric. She likes things that most women in their 30s liked when they were in the single digit birthdays. But not Becky! She has always marched to the beat of her own drum. And that, folks, is what anyone who knows her well would say is exactly why they love her so.
This past March she let a wee little cat out of the bag. She had never had a real birthday party. So I began to conspire with Becky's sister and best friends that were making the trip with her.
We were going to have her an old school birthday party! And surprise her while we were at it.
So the time was set. All party guests parked down the road and I trucked them up to my house. And then it was time. Getting 45 people to shhhhhh was no easy feat either. But then...1-2-3...
And then...She ran back out the door.
While she spent a bit visiting with people we had some hamburgers, hot dogs, baked beans, potato salad, cheese dip and chips that Camie shall model for us now...
From there...it was game time. Now, anyone who knows my kind of parties knows that I can't let a party go by without some themed games. And since, yet again, Becky is so unconventional, we had to have old school games with unconventional themes.
Since Becky was crowned as the 2010-2011 Channing Tatum's Biggest fan, what kind of party would we be if we didn't have a rousing game of...
Pin The Becky on the Channing Tatum.
She won, of course.
Then we had things like...
"Sue Sylvester Says" ~ Simon Says
"Step by Step" ~ Just Dance on the Wii
"Step Up" ~ the 3-legged race
Well Becky...I hope the ice cream cake (orange at that) topped it all off for you to know just how much all these people love you!
