Believe it or not, Jon never went to a prom growing up, let alone a school dance or even a high school football game. Months ago I had started throwing around ideas for his 30th birthday party and thought, "Hey! Jon never went to a prom, I am going to throw him one". And there's nothing more that Jon loves than dressing up so to spice things up, we decided to do a 1983 prom, the year Jon was born. Jon turned 30 last Thursday and since I was traveling, I knew I wanted to make it extra special for him. I surprised him with a note and gift for each day of the week... starting with his favorite snacks and ending with an iPad (to which he exclaimed, this will be good for the baby to play with! First world problems?!).
Back to the party...I will let the pictures do the talking...
I borrowed a dress from my mom that I had tried on a few weeks ago. Let's just say that it was like using the jaws of life to get that thing around my growing belly on Saturday night haha. And yep Jon's mustache was real.

We are so lucky to be surrounded by family and friends that love us and helped celebrate Jon's birthday, it was an absolute blast. It was kind of nostalgic knowing this was the last big party I would throw before our baby boy is born and as bad as my little tootsies hurt the next morning, it was totally worth it! Jon is worth celebrating every.single.day.
