Vaughn turned the big 30 this year! That’s a BIG deal in my eyes, especially since we’ve known each other since we were FOURTEEN! Since I had never thrown the birthday boy a birthday party I thought a big bash for his thirtieth would be perfect. But not just any party, a surprise one! I signed up to host supper club a couple days after his birthday so he wouldn’t be too suspicious about me getting the house ready and all the extra food in the house. So on his actual birthday we went to OHOP (Original House of Pancakes) with some friends and family, very low key, and it would have bothered me had we not had the party already planned. He got some tequila and cigars from me which were going to be perfect for his Mexican Fiesta that Friday!

So Friday came and there was NOTHING put together because I had no where to hide anything. So thanks to a friend who came to help, it all slowly and surely all came together.
The plan was to stall him as long as possible to get home. A few friends were in on the whole thing which helped a TON. At exactly 7:00 Vaughn pulled into the driveway along with the Taco Truck. SURPRISE! He was very excited and I was relieved that the party could start and I didn’t have to worry any more about ruining the secret! It was SO much fun to celebrate him with all of our friends and family. I wish we didn’t it every year now!
The Taco Truck idea came from my dad. Juan is a customer of dad’s and serves authentic Mexican cuisine. His food is amazing and there was always a line for more tacos and burritos!
Even the littlest party goer got into the Mexican theme with his own little mustache! haha
me and the silly birthday boy!
We went well into the night by the fire. Love these people!
Only regret I have is I didn’t take a single picture from my camera- dang! I wish I had thought about that ahead of time for the fact I’d be running around playing host and not playing photographer. Oh well, it was a blast and SO happy I got to surprise him once with a big party! He makes turning 30 look fun!
