    so it's my wife's birthday and the party i was going to throw for her got foiled by the rain. :( we were going to go camp out at the beach and have a bonfire and whatnot - it was going to be a surprise. i've been teasing her for a month about how great her b-day party is going to be, and now it can't happen! :eek1: i need some ideas for great rainy-day b-day celebrations quick! thanks!!!

    Have an inside beach party! Just crank the thermostat, set up some volleyball nets in the basement or something, and have Haiwiian drinks + bbq for everyone!

    Since you already had the beach idea in the works... don't throw out the whole idea. I assume that you already have everything for that ready to go. So go get a huge tarp and put in the living room. Put a kiddie pool in the middle, lawn chairs and all that sortta stuff. Rent a couple chick flicks and still cook for her and have an indoor day at the beach. If she asks 'why?' tell her what you were going to do and she will love your preplanning and then ability to adjust quickly.

    Its the simple stuff that does it every time.

    that would be nice, but we live downtown, so the whole idea of downtown as romantic is kinda killed. i'm pretty limited on funds b/c i'm a college student, so we'll work the fake beach thing. :D thanks for all the ideas.

    i threw a kick-@ss party is what i gave her. :D it turned out great. i'll get pics up when they're emailed to me. we ended up putting a bunch of beach towels on the floor in her parents house, put some candles in the middle to simulate a bonfire, put a big beach umbrella in the corner and watched it rain outside. put on a little jack johnson and johanna chase. then i cooked 8 crabs, made some kickin fruit skewers and had 6 people over and drank smoothies and pretended we went to the beach. then we took her out for dessert at the local Papa Hydn's. it was killer. i'd never made crab before - it turned out phenomenal. i'd also never cleaned crab before :doah: pulling the lungs and intestines/sh!t outta them wasn't the most pleasant thing i've ever done. :haha: oh well, she loved it, that's all that mattered. :D :D :D
