Surprise Surprise Surprise!

Don’t you just love it when a plan comes together?

A few photos from the weekend away to Massachusetts.
It was AC’s Birthday earlier this month but her clan of pals decided to throw a slightly belated birthday bash… at her house…without her knowing.

Did we pull it off? Yes indeed!

First up – I faked illness as not to join them on their morning adventure.

Next? Clean clean clean and get the place ready for company!

Once that’s complete, have the chef arrive to set up for the tapas cooking lessons we’ll all get.
Was she surprised? Heck yah!!

The chef assisted us in make these tasty treats and those who joined for the pot luck portion afterwards were in for a treat.

Thanks to Larry for sharing some of his home brew too! Check out Larry and his wife Jess’s wonderful Fire Pond Pottery too! I’ve been collecting pieces for a few years.

What a nice weekend! Thanks for inviting us ladies!
