One birthday slumber party

Eight girls

Twenty-one hours of fun

= one exhausted mom!

After a 3 hour pool party, then pizza, & cupcake decorating--it's finally movie time! (yay!)


The party favors included these bracelets.  Bet some of you know where they're from!


Because you can never have enough party pom-poms, we decided to add Martha Stuart's to our original Lilly ones which were moved to the main dining room.  Martha's kit from comes with 7 pom-poms (4 small & 3 large) and these are the small ones.  They are very pretty and were a bit more fragile than the Lilly ones.  They tore a little when I was making them, but you can't tell once they're finished.

 Despite my exhaustion, when the last little girl went home today at 11:30am, I went to the gym for Yoga/Pilates class.....only to find out that today's class was cancelled because no one signed up!  What's up with that??  I thought I had signed up for the whole month--sigh.  AND I had flip flops on so I had to go home, put my socks and gym shoes on, and then I actually went back and did 45 minutes on the treadmill!  
Now can I just pass out on my bed???!

Sounds like a great time for your little girl and her friends! Good for you that you had good intentions about yoga/pilates, but treadmill is good too. Have a nice weekend!

Oh, I know she had a wonderful time. I have the bracelets in the adult size and they are so cute. It's great that even after all of that, you still had it in you to get in a workout. Hopefully now that's it's over you can get some rest.

The pom poms look great! I commend you for going back to the gym! I've gone once when the class was canceled with flip flops on and I just gave up! LOL.

I'm glad to hear that little Petunia had a great time. The cupcake decorating station is a clever idea. I'm thinking of holding my own slumber party just to get jewelry. You think hubs would go for that? I feel guilty that you mentioned you ran on the treadmill and now I'm eyeballing mine. I better go work out. Have a great weekend.

Love those pom-poms. So cute! You are amazing going to the gym in the first place. But going home and then going back? Total rock star! I'm impressed.

Those favors are so cute. I'm sure the girls had fun. Major props to you for actually going back to the gym! That's some serious motivation.

Cas said...

I can't believe you went back! That is willpower to the nth degree and far better than mine : )

The party sounds fun!

SO cute! I loved having slumber parties... Why can't us grown ups have them?!? Sigh.

Love the favors!

Heather said...

What pretty bracelets! I can't believe you went to the gym (twice) after all that. Impressive.
