I've been on Pinterest lately and I came across a birthday idea that I HAD to do for my momma. She was turning 50 December 3rd so with the help of Mackenzie, Madison, and Lisa we pulled it off. I rented out the Sky Box at the High Velocity Bar in the new J.W. Marriott downtown. She thought she was going to St. Elmo's. She really wanted St. Elmo's...(maybe New Years) but she was truly surprised until the very end. I wish I would have been in the car with them on the way down. Kenz was texting me updates about how she was freaking out and did not want a party...
Well she got one.
These were her special requested Chocolate cupcakes with caramel icing.
I loved her gift. (Pinterest Idea)...
I asked 50 friends and family to write mom a letter sharing their favorite memory of her. They E-mailed them to me and we put them in envelopes and numbered them 1-50. It was a really special gift. We got through 9 of them at the end of the evening. Madison's letter was #9 and after all the tears... we decided to wait till the next day to finish them. They came from old friends, new friends, coworkers, long lost relatives, Germany, and even famous people (not really... we made one up haha) They all varied from funny memories, sweet memories, loving memories, quotes, and novels. We spent most of the day reading 10 through 50. It was good. It was special just like my momma.
We passed out cupcakes and turned the lights off and lit them all. It was a very happy moment.
Happy Birthday to the best momma in the world. We love you.
