365 Project: A daily dose of KevenJacobs

by kevenjacobs

This night we were supposed to go to Mill Avenue in Tempe, to celebrate even more.

Little did I know…. There was a surprise party just for me!

It’s actually a funny story:

A few days ago, my boyfriend told me that a few of my friends were going to have a little get together and they wanted us to stop by to say ‘happy birthday’ before we went to Mill. I should have noticed this was strange (that they’d tell him, and not me…), but I’m completely oblivious, and didn’t think anything of it.

So the night of, I got pretty, and met Eddie at Valle Luna, where he had dinner. We headed over to my friend Kanoe’s house, and went through the garage. We walked in, and everyone yelled “SURPRISE!” I was still confused at this point, had absolutely no idea what was going on. Fun fact about Keven: when I’m in front of  a large group of people, I sort of blank out, and can’t process who is around me. While I was calming down, and saying hello to everyone, my friend Hector grabbed me and told me I had another surprise.

At this point, I probably should have connected the dots. My best friend’s phone had been off; I’d tried calling her multiple times that day. Who put together this magical surprise party with streamers everywhere? It couldn’t have been my boyfriend, I was with him all day.

BUT, I was still completely oblivious and in shock from the first surprise. They took me into the living room, and covered my eyes. I was going through the possibilities in my head, and settled on the idea that they had gotten me some sort of live animal, and I was trying to figure out how I was going to tell my parents that I had a new bunny.

In a way, they did get me a live animal. As my eyes were covered, I hear “Helloooo bestfriend,” in a lovely Russian accent that we like to do so much.

I opened my eyes, and who else, but my best friend JENN, was standing right in front of me. I still don’t know how she did it. I had been so upset that she wouldn’t be with my for my birthday but somehow she pulled it off!!! Yes, I did cry.

Honestly, trying to describe my reaction is pointless, because there are no words. So watch this instead: (SERIOUSLY, IT’S WORTH THE FEW SECONDS OF YOUR TIME).


Honestly, my birthday weekend had already been AMAZING, thanks to my wonderful boyfriend. But when my best friend surprised me, I couldn’t have asked for anything more. I’m so thankful ❤
