Yesterday afternoon, I arrived at my apartment after my last class only to be ushered swiftly into my bedroom, where I was forced to stay for half an hour.  I could hear commotion in the main room, but was not allowed out.

Turns out, my roommates planned and threw me a surprise birthday party!  There were decorations, snacks, pizza, gifts, games, and laughter.  It was a fantastic evening and I’m so thankful to be surrounded by such lovely people!



Have you ever been surprised on your birthday?  What happened?  Tell me your stories in the comments!

    How fun! Haha I love the part where they shoved you in the bedroom-did you suspect anything at that point?

    When I was eight, I was told we were going to have a birthday party for my grandma, whose birthday is a week after mine. I distinctly remember being up on the top bunk bed, pouting, and refusing to join the party because there would be cherry chocolate cake, which I dislike. Of course, when I finally came down, I found that it was a surprise joint birthday party, and there was a plain chocolate cake with candles for me to blow out. I was such an unselfish kid 🙂
