When D.R. asked me a while back how I'd like to celebrate my 40th birthday, I told him I wanted to go into downtown Chicago for a weekend and run the annual Chicago Lung Run. That's it, no party, no fancy dinner, just some family time in the city.
We've been planning the Chicago weekend for months now, even my sister is flying in for the occasion. So imagine my surprise when I walked into our friends house and was greeted by a boisterous "SURPRISE!".
Apparently my friend Nilu and my adorable hubby have been secretly corresponding for a month, and planning a party.
Here are a few shots from the evening...
