I'm happy to announce the party was a hit! I was pleasantly surprised to see almost everyone showed up. We had plenty of food for everyone (including cake - what's a party without cake?). I bought postcards so people could fill them out. Once my husband is overseas and we have his address I'll send them over to him. It's always nice getting FUN mail, but it's even better when it's from someone you don't hear from that often. We had a wonderful time catching up with friends and relatives we haven't seen in a LONG time! Too bad we can't get together more often - under better circumstances.

A Very Special THANK YOU to:
  • The Homewood Suites for letting us use their party room at no charge. They were SO helpful and wonderful to work with!
  • Tiny Prints for waiving the Rush shipping fees on our adorable invitations.
  • Cash Wise Foods for giving us a $25 gift card for the cake.
  • My friends and relatives who helped make this day possible!
My husband had a great time! Even though he wasn't sure about a party in the beginning, he was so very happy that we had one!


  1. So glad you had a good party and I LOVE your idea of having everyone fill out a postcard. That's such a sweet way to send him some love.

  2. That's awesome that you had a great party after all! I think it's great that places donated/waived fees and such for you too!

    Your husband is a blessed man to have you by his side!
