It's amazing how my priorities have changed since our college days. Back then, all you needed for a great birthday was a keg, maybe a band or at least a drunk guy with a guitar and a bunch of people. Since Matt had the girls all weekend the weekend before, I figured a perfect party for him would be NO kids. Kids are a package deal with some moms so I decided to just do a guy's night. I decided to keep it a surprise and conspired with his friend to ask a bunch of his guys friends over for a night of football (ECU vs. UNC), bourbon, beer, and bar food. Since I was trying to keep everything under wraps I wasn't able to make as much of the cool decorations that I normally do. Also, we are talking about guys here and I figured if I went too overboard on the cute napkins or straws, they may think I was a little crazy, or worse, not NOTICE! So I focused my little time on sweets and his beloved UNC.
Everything went off without a hitch and Matt was very surprised. He had a great night and I am so thankful for those who came out and left their families at home to show him some 30 love.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MATTHEW!
