Best Birthday Balloon Surprise


Last week, I started putting a special birthday surprise together for my husband.
I thought it would be awesome if I emailed friends and family and ask them to decorate a balloon.
I told them to blow up a balloon, create your birthday message, take a pic and email it to me by Friday night.
Then, I put them in MovieMaker, added music and bam – Glen’s Balloon Birthday Surprise was made!

Here’s the video I made…

Glen LOVED the surprise!
He was definitely feeling the love from friends and family.
I think it’s the perfect idea for expats, military or anyone who might live far away from their friends and family.


Thursday night, we headed to Chaud for Glen’s fancy birthday dinner.
It was my first time their for dinner, as we normally only go for lunch.
I was impressed.
The mushroom, polenta and parmesan cheese appetizer was heavenly!
I also asked them to make a custom salad and they agreed.
The scallop salad was amazing and Glen loved his steak plate!
Our waitress suggested a wonderful red wine and except for the absence of Crown Royal, the night was a success!








Look for more birthday weekend fun later today in my Giving Thanks post!
