hillary's birthday | Dearest Lou

hillary's birthday

it was my roommates birthday on saturday and we had a splendid time. i had everything all planned out and my plan was to surprise her after i picked her up from salt lake. hillary, daryl, and i went out to a birthday lunch before she headed down there. here are a few pictures of the sushi and such:




we took some quick pictures while daryl went to run an errand and before she left to salt lake:





after that she left and daryl and i went to work. we tried to find a relatively cheap couch cover but you can't get a nice looking one for cheaper than $70 which we were willing to invest for our dear friend. i also made her a card and got her a cute floral top. we bought her a bunch of silly things that said birthday princess, decorations, and LOTS of wrapping paper at the store. we then went to maceys and picked up her cute cake. after all of that we went to work it took much longer than expected to wrap the couch and blow up the balloons {inside each of the 19 balloons i put in a silly quote she said or memory} when we were about 1/2 done we get a call from her and she told us to hurry and pick her up!! we were freaking out luckily we got everything done.




we picked her up and she was so happy she thought that all we were doing for her was giving her that cheap sash, pin, etc. the whole way home she was happy and i told her i would buy her dinner {in order to give daryl sometime to go to the apartment and set everything up} we got us all taco bell and i honked her horn 19 times so daryl knew we were there well this will sum up what happened:





her reaction was priceless she was crying and so thankful for us. she loved the couch cover and everything else. after that her friend dylan came over and we cut her cake and sang her happy birthday.
