Weekends surprises (not for me)

I love surprises. And this weekend, I decided to surprise my grandma, who turned 90 years old on Friday. Ninety, like, that is amazing. And a full life of love, family, friends, travel and, well LIFE and change.

My mom coordinated a lunch for her on Saturday in Wisconsin and “the kids” were a surprise waiting for her at the table. In fact, when I called my grandma (from the train) on Friday, she said, “I was hoping you would come up for my lunch,” and I LIED. Lied that I wasn’t able to make it.

And when she saw me and my brother/SIL on Saturday, she got emotional (cue tears from me too).

It was really a great surprise, great lunch and great visit. I’m so glad I was able to go home and be part of it.

So here’s a photo of my grandma from her big day, she is too cute.

She did ask when I was getting married, but I’ll let that go because, well she’s 90, she can say whatever she wants by now :)

My quick trip home also allowed me to see this face too. So adorable, I cannot even handle it.

How was your weekend?

  5. Aw, what a lovely surprise and a great celebration of family :)
    My weekend was quite different! My Little Mister was a paige boy in a wedding…that was on a boat! It was the most insane day ever, but it made the bride (who has a son the same age) so happy to see all the toddlers goofing up on their way down the aisle!
    We attended a birthday party for a little friend (an early 1st bday) and then we tried to recover and recouperate! Running after little ones is tiring!!
