On Saturday night Andy’s girlfriend Katie and Andy’s friend John threw a surprise party to celebrate his 40th birthday. Everyone gathered at John’s house between 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. Andy was scheduled to arrive at 8:00 p.m. This is us trying to shut our mouths so we don’t ruin the surprise.
John told Andy he met a new girl and went on a couple dates with her. This new girl supposedly was to have invited John to a party with her friends. John didn’t want to go alone so he invited Andy and Katie to come along and make it a double date. This was the premise for getting Andy to John’s house. He was so surprised!
In the next few photos, it’s still sinking in…
And here we all are, surprising him.
And then the party was off! Such a fun time. Rich made this pineapple vodka. There were 15 pineapples and 6 handles of Stoli in this jug! It was delicious, we mixed it with sprite.
I made Andy’s favorite cupcakes for the party – Irish Car Bomb cupcakes.
At some point Andy made a drunken speech and we made a toast to “everyone’s best friend.”
Downstairs, John’s living room has a disco ball.
This made it a football dance party down there. The Packers game was on and they killed the Falcons. People were actually cheering for the Packers because they wanted to see a Bears/Packers NFC Championship Game. The Bears won on Sunday and now it’s on. The Bears and Packers have not met each other in the post season since 1941!
Dallas and Andy and their terrible dance moves.
Katie got Andy a delicious cake from Alliance Bakery.
Fun party! Happy birthday, Andy!
