My wife is turning 30 this February and I would love to plan a party for her. She is a mother of two, works as a RN and enjoys life and me, most of the time.
What would be the ultimate surprise that I could include all of our friends? Some things I've thought of are: house party at our place or a close friends, dinner and a night out on the town, Disney World for the weekend (we live close and go often), or maybe a cruise for the two of us and let the kids stay with family.
I'm losing my mind! Help!

Ask one of her co workers to pass the question around a couple of the nurses. Maybe just having the kids at family and the two of you just staying home. My request? Just me myself and I alone for respite time for 24 hours. No phone, no demands, no nothing. Those days made me feel much better about what I could do the next day. Remember, all these reminders of the impending birthday make women ask themselves what have I accomplished and what more do I want to do. Much more than a surprise and a birthday cakes with all the candles. (10/16/2010)

Please whatever you decide to do do not add to her work load. By having a party at your house it would add stress to her during and after. The worry during and the clean up after. I vote for a mini-vacation. Take the kids to the sitter and take her somewhere where she can't work. No laundry, no cooking, etc., etc. Time with you is always best. (10/20/2010)
This might be a fun treat for her: Take her to a restaurant to eat, and then to a motel, just her and you. I'm sure she would love to be able to spend time with just you, and she wouldn't have anything to clean up afterward. (10/23/2010)
