Mom turns the Big 5-0!

On Wednesday, Sept. 1st, mom joined the ranks of the "Over the Hill" crowd. hahaha Yep, she turned 50. Her milestone birthday was marked with lots of fun events!

Wednesday - She arrived to work with black streamers and black balloons and a big Happy Birthday banner draping her work area! ;) (thanks to the birthday fairies, Mike & Bonnie...Mike was happy to repay the kindness of his 50th birthday!) That night, I treated her to dinner at The Grub Co. and her friend Debbie joined us.

Friday - Jenna came home for the weekend and we met her in Greensburg for another birthday dinner at El Reparo.

Saturday - After our trip to Gatlinburg, Zach (mom's nephew) told her he was going to treat her to a birthday meal at Sakura in Lawrenceburg. (Japanese Hibachi grill is seriously my new FAVE!) So, 13 of us met up for dinner that evening and enjoyed a great meal and fun company!

By this point....mom really thought the birthday celebrations were over. Little did she know, the big surprise was still coming! :)

The NEXT Friday night, Sept. 10th, I told her I needed a guest for a Mary Kay event. Luckily, she agreed to go with me, thanks to a little nudging from our family friend/my MK Director, Vonda. We arrived to our usual meeting spot and headed in...to a big ole Surprise Party!! We had about 50 family and friends there to enjoy a catered meal and some yummy birthday cake! It was so much fun surprising her. She had absolutely NO idea, which made it even better. :) Jen and I were so happy we pulled it off! haha

Here's a few pics of mom's birthday celebrations!
