weekend review and cake reveal!

Friday night our Sunday school class had a great Rock Band party and BTW I don't know if I ever actually blogged that Mr. A and I got the opportunity to talk to his parents and we became official members at the church we'd been visiting for awhile last week!

Saturday went off better than I could have imagined see I've been keeping sort of mum on the blog front because I was so afraid I'd spill the beans about Mr. A's surprise party Friday night. Thankfully I didn't and he was thoroughly surprised!! We held the party at a local arcade place and we had about 36 guests it was a fabulous night to celebrate my wonderful husband.

Mr. A, his parents and I.

I was so glad my momma had a feel good day and got to be there to celebrate with us. Isn't she cute in her scarf? That's her on the left with my mom in law.

this next series of pictures makes me tear up with tears of joy every time I look at them. It was not even a year ago Mr. A and I felt like we'd never find friends and now we are abundantly blessed with the most fabulous friends. God is so good and He answered our prayer 100 times over!

have you ever met someone and instantly become best friends because you felt like long lost soul mates? Mrs. G is totally that person for me. She is the best friend I have been praying for forever. See I never really had a super close best friend I felt like I could talk to about anything. Don't get me wrong I've always had really awesome people in my life but I always felt like my friendships could be more. With Mrs. G I feel like I could spill my heart and I love her for that!

the party Saturday night revealed to me how truly truly blessed Mr. A and I are we can really say for the first time in a really long time we are HAPPY!







Now on to the cake reveal as I've mentioned before Mr. A is a gamer he loves playing his XBOX 360 with his friends and well it's his only vice and I can't really complain because sometimes he lets me play too :)

So anyway what better cake for Mr. A than his very own edible 360?

although I did have to explain to Mr. A he couldn't actually play this 360.

I've got to admit I am pretty proud of this cake! the tag says "Achievement Unlocked Happy 27"
