A Birthday Surprise

My birthday is coming up and some of my friends decided to plan a little something for me. I was at my friend Jenn's house the other day and she said, "Oh, by the way, we're doing something for your birthday. Be at my house at 4:30 on Friday. I'll have a sitter for the kids." Awesome!

Later Jenn asked if Saturday would work instead of Friday, and I said it would. She still wouldn't tell me anything about it, though. I was, like, "No hints? You're gonna leave me in suspense?! At least tell me what I should wear so I'm not under or over dressed." "Nope. Just wear a pair of jeans and a cute top."

On the big day I was, of course, running late getting to her house, because that's what Jillys do best. After we got the kids settled in with the sitter we were off on our big adventure. We hopped in the car and started driving. Two other friends, Annie & Pam, were already there, wherever we were going.

We arrived at a nail salon to get {pedicures}!! It was so awesome, because I had mentioned a few weeks ago that I had never gone to get a real pedicure. I was so excited! It was such a blast to sit there in the massage chairs, having my feet pampered and chatting with these awesome girls I am {lucky} to call my friends. My feet look the best they have ever looked in my entire life! Bye bye calluses!

So, after we got the Deluxe Package--which included a paraffin wax treatment & yummy smelling salt scrub-- we sat around talking for a long time, then stood outside talking for even longer. It was so awesome to be "girly" and silly, especially after a long week.

Thanks you guys SO much for the awesome surprise. It was so much fun. You guys are seriously awesome. Like Annie said, I am glad to have made such great friends here in Arizona, 'cause with those crazy boys in school all the time (for the next 3 1/2 years) it's good to have some awesome girlfriends.


  1. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! I am sorry I had no idea. Looks like you guys had fun though!!

  2. How FUN! That's what I call a present. A day out with the girls AND baby-sitting. Boo-yah! Happy Birthday Jillian. I envy your flip-flop wearing, manicured toes : )

  3. Happy, Happy Birthday! I for one had a blast Saturday! You should have a birthday every week! : )

  4. I can't believe you've never had a pedicure! Seriously I'm addicted! I get them at least once a month and during the summer every couple weeks! I don't know how you can do without them! But now we can go together some time! Yay!

  5. Happy Birthday! What a great way to celebrate--I'm glad you have such great friends in AZ! :)
