The surprise that almost wasn't.

This weekend was so much fun. Garth and I have been wanting to plan a surprise engagement party for my brother and future sister-in-law for awhile now and it finally came to fruition this weekend.
It was our first time planning a surprise party and probably my last. It was so difficult to get them to come to our apartment. Many lies had to be told, but it all worked out and they were very surprised.
Here they are coming in as we all yelled SURPRISE!

It was such a fun night!
