30 ans et toutes ses dents

September 24, 2008

This weekend, friends and family gathered to celebrate my baby sister’s 30th birthday.  Her husband had deviously planned a surprise party and we all pitched in for a pair of tickets to a New England Patriots game in Boston this November (my sister is a huge Patriots fan).

It was no easy feat getting such coveted tickets and Michelle could have never suspected because she was convinced that it was impossible to find seats for this season.  But Michael pulled it off and with all the money collected, we managed to turn it into a romantic weekend getaway.  (hmmm.  football and romance; two words I would have never thought of stringing together in the same sentence.)

So, imagine her surprise when she opened the big box containing 2 small tickets tucked away in a pink Patriots tuque.  Actually, no need to imagine it; it looks something like this…

… followed by tears and laughter and excitement and everything you could hope for when you give the perfect gift.

But all that was Saturday and today is today, which is her official birthday and I didn’t want to let it pass by without wishing her a happy, happy day!  Happy birthday, gorgeous!  Welcome to the club!

    Go Pats and Happy Day! Unfortunately, with the injury to Brady, tickets may not be quite as dear this year as previously.
