the SURPRISE party {or how i lied to my husband for months}

the last few weeks the lord has blessed us in so many ways,
we have had much to celebrate and be grateful for

In the beginning of the year I knew I wanted to throw Scott a graduation party. 

the trouble was he was not so into a celebration {modest he is, a party pooper he is not}

so I decided a surprise party it was...for months I planned a surprise party, invited friends from out of town, and lied to my husband.

I told him I would be having a end of year spouses club party, so with 20 or so ladies in the house he would have to take a hike...

after a day of golfing with Rik he came home to a house full of people to celebrate his graduation from college!

{I did not get nearly as many pictures as I had hoped, but I was running around being the hostess}

the theme was nautical inspired

of course Khloe had to get dressed up too

those oreo cheesecake cupcakes to the right were the hit of the party!

a hotdog bar

For the food I did a hotdog bar, all the fixings to make a chicago dog, a detroit coney island dog and a west coast LA dog.

the hotdog bar was a hit!!

we also had my yummy mac and cheese, cheese and crackers and the usual plethora of chips.

I really wish I would have taken more pictures, but such is life
{I have plenty more then the ones i posted here so I guess I mean better pictures}


tons of drinks

cute godsons who had their first road trip

you can't see the banner very well but it says congratulations graduate

outside nautical decorations

Scott was so surprised to see so many people from out of town in our backyard when he arrived home.

I was beyond shocked no one ruined the surprise.

Many friends from SD made it up,
our Hatzung cousins from the dessert made it out,
and friends from scotts work.
{should have taken a group shot}

a super special thank you to rik and liz who were my partners in crime for this entire celebration.
all three of us were lying to scott left and right to get the party off the ground!
