For two months I planned a surprise party for my red-bearded, glasses-wearing, golf-playing husband. For two months, he was oblivious to my scheming, and it. was. awesome. A few Saturdays ago, my sweet father-in-law helped me get the birthday boy to the party after they had played a round of golf — stopping by say hi to your wife sunning at the pool and instead finding your closest friends and family gathered to celebrate you really worked out pretty swell. Some faves below, and the full gallery is HERE.
Editor’s Note: If you were in the gallery in a swimsuit, as I was, I hope you can appreciate me trying to share some positive body image vibes. And big ups to my sister-in law Claire for rocking a swimsuit at nine months pregnant! She crushed it and should get an award. I’d like to mention all pics of me have been taken after a few sandwiches, at least six moscow mules and two beers. I’ve looked better, like when I weighed 130 pounds, but lately I’m trying to be a little easier on myself when it comes to pool season. So, enjoy what some real people look like at a pool party. I know I had a blast. Brian did too.
