Girl's Slumber Party!!!

Bella was invited to a slumber party for Friday night. The funny thing is that I was invited, too. The invitation for me gave me a moment of pause as I haven't been invited to a slumber party for a LONG time but, when I found out it was a mommy/daughter slumber party, I was all over that! Oh, and did we have fun! We watched the new barbie movie and Bella and I painted each other's nails. She was VERY serious as she was giving me my manicure and pedicure and she keeps checking up on my nails in the days since to make sure they are still good. Of course, she put about 3 different THICK layers of different color paint on my nails (and skin) so I don't think it is going anywhere for awhile!

A night like this was probably overdue. Just the other night, I was getting ready to leave for a Stk. Young Women's training and Bella told me she didn't want me to go. I told her that I needed to and she said, "Mom, don't go. I'll give you a dollar." Her innocent bribe just about made me laugh and cry at the same time. When I repeated that I had to go, she tried to sweeten the bribe by making it three dollars. I was tempted to take her up on it. :)

Can you imagine all of the girly squeals we heard all night long!?! Bella was still going strong at midnight but I was crashing so we made our way to our sleeping bags and hit the sack.

Pink PJs and pink whoppers. I definitely foresee more mommy/daughter sleepovers in our future.

Oh, the choices!!!

BEAUTIFUL!

What a great idea! Do you think that would work with teenagers? Bella, you did such a good job on the nails. You could work in a salon!

Oh that sounds like a fun night. I have started making time for my girls with me by themselves. We get caught up in todays lifestyles that we tend to forget to make time for the one that count our own speical sprits. Thanks for the idea.
