Slumber Parties - Not Just for Kids

This past Saturday night, I did something I have not done for a very long time. I went to a slumber party.

My dear friend Michelle is getting married in June. She decided that for her bachelorette party, she wanted to have a slumber party at her house. We all went over at about 7 pm to get the party started. After an early round of margaritas followed by mojitos, we had a dinner of salad and pizza. We talked about everything from what we would wear to Michelle's wedding to bikini waxing. It was great to just hang out with the women and talk about all the things we never say in front of guys.

After our meal, we played Cranium. Michelle and her partner, Laura, dominated the game. It was good for her to win as she was the woman of the hour. Those of us who decided to stay over then changed into our pajamas (brand new jammies for Michelle and me) and did face masks while watching the classic romantic chick flick - Casablanca. We soon all fell asleep on Michelle's floor in our sleeping bags. In the morning we got up and went to a nice brunch downtown.

Michelle had a great idea for her party, and I am really glad I was able to be there. We may be getting a little bit too old to sleep on the floor, but the margaritas did help with that.

I'm so glad you had fun! I did too! Maybe we'll roll Cranium into our girls night out events we plan on having in the coming months.
