Excited about surprises!!

I already mentioned my ds 19, his gf, and their friend moved into an apartment 3 weeks ago. The guys claimed the 3rd bedroom as their "man cave" to store all of their outdoor gear in since they don't have a garage. So it's full of kayaks, fishing gear, etc.

So, gf said she wanted the balcony for her and their mini dachshund. She called it their "b**** balcony". She's wanted to decorate it but they havent had the money. So today my sister and I took some things we had and some things we bought and went and decorated it for her while they were all at work. We put a rocking chair with cute cushion, little table with a pot of cacti, lights strung, and mini puppy proofed the bottom of the railings because I was really afraid she could squish herself out if she saw a bird and it's on the second floor. I can't wait for her to get home and see it!

Also, as a birthday present surprise (but they got delayed) my dd 15 club soccer coach ordered her CUSTOM made goalkeeper gloves that are the only pair like them in the US and come with her name, number, and club team printed on them just like the National Team keepers have. They should be done in a week. I can't wait for her to get them just in time for 3 upcoming tournaments they have.

I love what you & your sister did for the b**** balcony. You have to let us know what she says and share a picture.

What a great birthday present for your DD. The Coach sounds like a special friend. I hope you get a picture of her opening them.

I wanted to wait until the lights could show on the balcony since it was sunny and hot as hades when we were there.

time to decorate

How fun to read of the nice things happening for your family! That balcony sounds really cute! (But... a room that's only storing a bunch of outdoor gear, not so much!) Maybe you can add a string of lights on the kayaks!

Oh! That soccer coach is definitely a keeper! What a sweet (but probably expensive) gift!

Yes he is awesome. And I'm sure around 200.00 plus. The regular non-custom ones I buy her are around 125. Yes, maybe we should decorate the kayaks and hunting gear....lol

Your excitement shines through! Both things are so special and fun to hear about. Decorating the balcony sounds so cool. Can't wait to see pictures

You are full of surprises! So what was GF's reaction to the balcony???? Please let us know how DD responds too. With a DD who played softball and would have been over the moon with something special like that, I am sure the reaction will be wonderful!

She's not getting tue gloves for at least a week so I'll let y'all know.

Gf thought munson did it until he got home from work late and told her we did it. I give him points for not taking credit. lol

She sent a super sweet text and said she cried.
