last night was my cousin jenna's surprise super sweet 16 birthday party. the venue was picked, family was in from out of town and jenna didn't have a clue that anything was going on.
the whole day was planned for us yesterday - we would get up early and head to the venue to help decorate and organize. sissy and i would then pick up jenna and distract her for a bit, getting lunch with the family, shopping at my favorite store EVER in canton the blissful and generally just wasting time.
when it was time to take jenna home sissy said something completely random and funny which caused me to say to her, "i'm totally twittering that". not even thinking that jenna would want to see what i ended up twittering prior to our "dinner reservations" that were at 7:30.
can you see where this is going?
twitter has become such second nature to me that when i do almost anything i pull out my bberry and type out 140 characters. not even thinking about people other than my followers ever reading it.
i.e. around noon yesterday i posted this little gem...
it didn't even cross my mind that jenna would ever read this prior to the party. i mean, we had her completely busy all day.
not busy enough apparently because an hour before our "dinner reservation" she checked my blog and saw the above tweet causing her very very smart soon to be 16 year old brain to question what really was going to be happening last night. basically she started putting two and two together. at least it was only an hour before the big surprise.
when she walked into the party 75 eager people shouted "surprise!" - she was completely shocked.
except she said to the whole group shortly after her arrival, "i would have been completely surprised if i hadn't read alexa's blog before i came!"
what? what? huh?
