He was so excited, surprised & touched that it brought tears of happiness to his eyes! What a sensitive guy!
I made slow-cooker sloppy joes earlier that day; they were rather tasty & easy to make. I can't stand being stuck in the kitchen when I'm having a get together, so I love crowd pleasing, make-ahead meals. If you're interested in checking out the recipe, click here.
Cam wasn't exactly a fan of the birthday hat!
But Mike was!
Mike & his gal pals, Lauren & Kelly.
We couldn't decide who was taller so Lauren & Kelly went back-to-back. I think Kelly ended up being a hair taller, but it was super close.
Same goes with me & Matt; it was too close to tell!
Kelly loves her KC Boy!
I made Reese's peanut butter cup inspired cupcakes since Mike adores the combination of chocolate & peanut butter. I found this recipe in my Food Network Magazine; click here to check it out. Instead of mini cupcakes, I made regular & instead of homemade, I used a mix to save some time.
I think Mike enjoyed them. He thought they tasted good warmed in the microwave to soften the peanut butter & chocolate.
We tested out Lauren's birthday present; an awesome camera Josh gave her that very night. We got a little goofy with our poses, but it was a blast!
It was an awesome night & I'm so happy that my friends helped me pull off the surprise. Happy Birthday, Mike! I love you!
