I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Millennial Central for Marriott Rewards®. I received Marriott Points to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
I’ve never had a surprise party, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t dreamed about having one and that certainly hasn’t stopped me from trying to get my friends to throw me one. Case in point, I’ll never forget the letter I sent my best friend with detailed instructions on the “surprise party” I wanted her to throw me after I returned from our 2 month drive around the country. Talk about subtle hints…..Needless to say that surprise party never happened (I can’t imagine why…) and to this day I have yet to have one (hint, hint Mr.RC), but I absolutely love reading about the surprise parties that have happened to other people. Like for example the recent Marriott Rewards® Year of Surprises parties. From a very special birthday party to a returning military soldier’s 50th, the stories have all been fun to read. My favorite? The country style engagement party. Not only am I a big fan of anything country, but Stephanie could not have been more deserving of a surprise party after the incredibly difficult year she has just gone through. Watch for yourself to see just what I mean:

Have you ever had a surprise party thrown for you or have you thrown one for someone?
