Friday Favorite: Surprises

I love to pull off a good surprise. Unfortunately, I am not very good at keep them. Until now:)
My sisters and I schemed a little Surprise Birthday Party/Dinner for my Dad Wednesday night at Sinclairs in Montgomery. 

Here's how it went down:
60th Birthday Invitation
My Dad wanted a quite Birthday. Maybe no one would notice he turned 60? It took Adrienne, my older sister, saying she was coming into town to sort out wedding details for him to agree to dinner. I told Dad that I would ride down with A and we could have a quick dinner before she and I had to drive back to Bham.
Little did he know there were 15 of us waiting at the bottom of the stairs when he and Mom walked into the room. Complete surprise I tell you!












Surprise!

It's a BIG One!


Happy 60TH Birthday to my Dad! 

I could get all sappy today, but I am just not going to do it! 
I love you Dad. Thank you for all you do for our family. Because of you, our family has so many wonderful memories already, and I know there are many more to come! Happy Birthday, Dad!

Hope you have the Best Birthday yet!

Floors Like Pattern, too.

I love a good pattern, and not just on fabrics. Something about seeing a pattern under my feet makes me happy! ONE day a want floors like this (are you listening Tayphill???) :

Hey girl, let me see that skirt

Can I just tell you I have been doing so many skirted consoles here lately! No complaining from this girl. They can be perfect for many different reasons. They can soften a room with just the right amount of fabric. Have a room that needs juuust 1 more surface, but the space is starting to look like a national forest with all the wood case pieces you've got going on? Skirted Console. Have a foyer that is uninviting? Skirted Console. 2 twin beds and you need the perfect bedside table? Skirted Console. Want something unconventional for your dining room sideboard or buffet? Skirted Console. Want to add some color/interest to an otherwise dull room? Skirted Console.
 Are you convinced, yet?

If not, maybe these will help.
