I have some pretty special men in my life. I have my dad and hands up….I was and STILL am a Daddy’s Girl. I love that man more than ordinary words can say. I can say all the exaggerated phrases like My Hero, The Funniest, Incredibly Generous, My First Cheerleader but they still fall too flat. He’s the person I still call when I need to vent and cry because he’s always known to validate my feelings first (even when they were a mess of angsty teenage girl who felt like her world was over, I repeat, OVER because not one friend had the same lunch period as me) and save the advice for the end after I was all dried out of tears and it was exactly what I needed to hear. Not always what I wanted but precisely what I needed. My first Secret Admirer, sending me a big bouquet of flowers every Valentine’s Day during school so I felt special. Starting from 6th grade and continues to this day, always complete with a card telling me something he loves about me and signed Your Secret Admirer. Even though I’ve known it was him since late high school, when he slipped up and wrote the card himself and I immediately recognized his handwriting, it’s still one of my most dear traditions. He was the perfect Dad and my mom always told me if I could find a man like my Dad I’d be happy for the rest of my life.
And it’s been true. Next up is my husband, Scott, who had some monstrous shoes to try and fill but stepped right up to the plate and like everything else in his life has shown he’s brilliant at it. He and my Dad are so similar that they’re incredibly close to each other on their own which just thrills me to see the two men that I love more than life get along so swimmingly! Scott is such a tremendous father to our daughter, Brielle! He can get her belly laughing so hard she can’t breath. She loves trailing behind him as he refills our bird feeder, gets the mail, does yard work and make Mav runs so she can convince him she NEEDS those M&Ms! He’s always willing to take her for an afternoon when I need a break or take her shopping. She loves it too because he’s such a softie she always returns with something new. She 100% has her Daddy wrapped around her cherubic finger and I know their relationship is shaping up to be as special as mine with my Dad. So you can clearly see…I LOVE celebrating Father’s Day and the men that are champions of the title Father!
NOW, onto the reason you’re here…the party!! I wanted a masculine theme but finding one that fit for both of them with varying interests was hard. Until I decided on “Thank you for helping us BUILD our lives!” because it’s a perfect fit for them both since they’re still shaping their childrens’ lives! I went with a construction theme and kept my colors to bold orange, yellow and black with splashes of metallic silver.
