surprise!

Friday night I threw a surprise party for David, whose birthday was the Friday before (his birthday coincided with our five year anniversary). I invited a bunch of our friends from Hampshire and David’s brother, Brian. I’d been planning the party for weeks and there were a lot of close calls–David reading over my shoulder as I opened my email account to a new message from someone about the party, etc.

Our friends arrived at one of our favorite restaurants, Blue Taleh, at around 6:30. The plan was for us to leave the apartment at 6:45, but multiple people got lost so I kept getting phone calls and text messages warning me not to come. I pretended that my mom kept calling but had bad reception so she kept losing the call. When we got to the restaurant David was totally shocked. It was an awesome night. After dinner, everyone came back to our apartment for pumpkin whoopie pies (recipe to follow) and drinks.
