Mom's 60th surprise birthday!

Saturday my sister and I threw a party for my mom's 60th birthday. This particular weekend has been on my mind for almost a year, and I have been dying to blog about it in some fashion, but mom reads my blog so unfortunately I've had to keep my mouth shut for a LONG time. I hate keeping secrets and this one was tough not to blab.
Anywho, the party was quite a success, if I do say so myself! Everyone seemed to have a great time. We had around 35 friends and family come and wish her a happy birthday and eat some great food that my sister cooked up. We managed to keep the party a secret until the night before, when we agreed we should go ahead and let her know that there were a few people coming by. We didn't tell her who, so I think there was still an element of surprise each time the doorbell rang! Happy Birthday, mom- we love you!

I put my college degree to work and made the invites!

For those who dropped by and asked for the recipe of the chocolate chip cookies I made, here is the recipe. I know many of my blogging friends visit Katie over at Good Things Catered and can attest that she has many wonderful recipes- her amazing cookies are just one of them.
