My sweet, sweet husband pulled off the impossible! He and my wonderful friends truly surprised me with an early 50th birthday party. I thought I was going to my girlfriend’s house for a Mom’s “almost the end of the school year” get together…instead, I walked into a beautiful New Orleans themed soiree with plenty of fantastic food, drink, and music including my favorite freshly boiled crawfish and shrimp, purple, green and gold birthday cake, king cake, souvenir cups AND all of the faces I love! It was a perfect night and so much fun. They really went all out and I will never, ever forget it! I should have turned 50 years ago!
