Later tonight there will be a rockin' party to celebrate the impending arrival of Emerson Grace. About a month or so ago, a plan was formed in order for me to attend as a surprise to T. There were several girls who tried to get down here but, unfortunately, it just wasn't able to happen for one reason or another. But yesterday I hopped a plane and flew to Paradise. Another benefit of being single and still childless. Might as well take advantage of that freedom while I still have it, right?

I had a couple of accomplices, otherwise this never would have come together. T's wonderful neighbor and friend, Michelle, was a huge help in working out the details. And of course, J (her hubs) was in on it, too.

She was shocked when I walked in the door!! It was absolutely freakin' awesome! I had my new Flip recording the reaction..... unfortunately, that footage is under lock and key. Sorry, y'all. The princess was out sunbathing in a skimpy, strapless bikini (cuz that's what they do down here in Paradise) just prior to my arrival. Not only that but her agency had called at nearly the same second with her TA. So as soon as she saw me with that camera screaming "SURPRISE" she took off running .... to avoid the camera AND so she could hear what her agency rep was saying.....and she hid in the bathroom. It was good stuff but she refuses to let it be shown on the world wibe web..... so I have to honor her wishes.

What she doesn't know is that she's in for another surprise in about an hour. No worries... she won't read this before then. She's out shopping and J is running errands while the boys and I hang out at the pool. So stay tuned. Hopefully, that Flip recording will be viewable. ;)

*Update: Pulled off another awesome surprise with Colleen's arrival!!! Check out T's blog for that video ...... which luckily is viewable by the general public. LOL!
