Valentines, Girlfriend Style

Last month our oldest daughter who is 10 (going on 22) asked me if she could have a Valentines themed slumber party for her girlfriends to celebrate their friendships & I could not bring myself to tell her no. Although the thought of having 10 girls all under the age of 10 running around screaming, dancing and being sassy can be frightening, this is a pretty great group of girls and I think I may have had just as much fun as they did. We had to do it this past weekend because Valentines Day is the busiest day of the year for me with my flower business, so I am grateful that it all worked out, and we get to enjoy all of the pretty decorations a bit longer too!
We ate heart shaped pizzas for dinner (Papa John's) and yummy cup cakes for dessert. Then we did crafts... Custom made flip flops for the older girls, tiaras for the wee ones....
Then it was time for a dance off..they even wanted me to join in the competition, and I must tell you, it was just too much fun! I am sure there is video out there that my daughters & their friends will be bribing me with one day. I only wish that I could have had my best girlfriends there too...they all live in othere states, but they are always in my heart & with me in spirit.

I wish you all a Valentines Day filled with love, wheather from the love of your life, your best friends, or your family, and if you are lucky enough to have it all, never forget it!
XO~
