My little sis is officially 30 years old, which means I too am going to be another year older in less than a month – boo! Why can’t we both stay 21 forever?!
Georgia and I wanted to do something extra special for the birthday girl with this being her 30th and all, so about a month ago we began brainstorming ideas to celebrate the monumental occasion. Looking back on how yesterday turned out, I would have to say that her birthday surprise was a HUGE success!
My sis is a bit of a world traveler. She’s lived in two different countries and three states in her 30 years, so she has close friends all over the globe. With that being the case and with us knowing that it was logistically impossible for her to celebrate her b-day with all her peeps in Vancouver, B.C. we decided, why not bring her to them!
This brought about the creation of the “bobblehead birthday girl” or “Mini-Missy” as we came to call it. Thanks to my super talented tech-savvy wife, our Mini-Missy was born! After weeks of tracking all of M’s closest friends and gathering their contact information along with close family, instructions and a bobblehead birthday girl were mailed out earlier this month. Missy had no idea that any of this was happening until the first of 54 pictures was posted by yours truly on her FB wall the night before her birthday (shown above). From that moment on she was flooded with personalized pictures of family and friends “celebrating” with their Mini-Missy! All together we ended up having about 70 people participate, which was way more than we expected!
I know she LOVED it and my hope is that it reminded her of just how special she is to SO MANY people!
Now for the good stuff
