Dirty 30

The hubster turned 30... he says 30 is the new 18... I say 30 is 30 :)

I decided I would throw him a surprise party to celebrate the passing of an era.  I had his friend Dave take him out fishing for the day, got all his friends in the house... dressed up like crazy people... and pulled it off without Kyle expecting a thing.  If you know my husband, you know this was probably incredibly easy since he is one of the least observant people I know.  I probably could have told him about the party and he would have forgotten an hour later and still been surprised.  None the less, I was proud of myself.  Here are a few pictures of this insane event (no judgement please).

Waiting to yell "SURPRISE!"  Complete with a cat and mouse, new parents, the unabomber, big bird, a pirate, officer Dangle, and an astronaut.  Quite the characters here.

Still holding all his fishing gear and completely surprised.

Kyle was a tree hugger and I was a tree.

Oh Officer Dangle... you're so naughty.

The Unabomber showed up with a package...

And inside the package were "treats."

The boys examining the package to see if it was safe.

But when you pull out a "treat"... BOOOM!

Oh Officer Dangle... fooled again!

I think we helped Kyle ease into his 30s quite nicely don't you?

Tim says it best:

"I think I’ll take a moment, celebrate my age
The ending of an era and the turning of a page
Now it’s time to focus in on where I go from here
Lord have mercy on my next thirty years

Hey my next thirty years I’m gonna have some fun
Try to forget about all the crazy things I’ve done
Maybe now I’ve conquered all my adolescent fears
And I’ll do it better in my next thirty years

My next thirty years I’m gonna settle all the scores
Cry a little less, laugh a little more
Find a world of happiness without the hate and fear
Figure out just what I’m doing here
In my next thirty years

Oh my next thirty years, I’m gonna watch my weight
Eat a few more salads and not stay up so late
Drink a little lemonade and not so many beers
Maybe I’ll remember my next thirty years

My next thirty years will be the best years of my life
Raise a little family and hang out with my wife
Spend precious moments with the ones that I hold dear
Make up for lost time here ,In my next thirty years"

Happy Birthday to the man of my dreams.
May your 30s be as partyrific as your 20s.


  1. That is awesome! Happy birthday to your husband!

  2. What a fun party! Wishing your hubby a happy "next 30 years." I'll warn you (I can say this at 58)--they'll go by fast.

  3. I immediately recognized the 'new parents' as the people in pajamas.

  4. LOL. I LOVE your costumes. Such a cute idea:)

  5. I threw my husband a surprise 30th birthday party this year, too!!! Lots of fun, especially pulling it off without him suspecting!
