The theme of the party was Hello Kitty with a few zombie movies thrown in there for good measure. I left Sammy at home with Captain Husband and got ready for an evening of fun; for those of you wondering, this marked the first time that CH and Sammy were on their own in over a year. Don't worry--they appear to be none the worse for wear.
Elizabeth emailed our friends a few weeks before the party and asked each of them to come up with three words that described me; she then turned their answers into a beautiful piece of hand-lettered art--looking at this, I'd have to say that my friends really know me pretty well (if you look closely you'll see antiques, turquoise blue, zombies, and cupcakes).
Joining us in her very first girls' night slumber party was Nessa, Elizabeth's little girl; she is such a smiley, sweet baby and was on her best behavior all evening.
The real fun began after we all had a few cupcakes and a couple of adult beverages--it didn't take long for us to break out the press-on Hello Kitty tattoos and get a little crazy.
No need for tickets--this here's a free gun show.
I like mine so much (I'm the wrist on the left) that I've nearly convinced myself to get one for real.
What's a slumber party without an obligatory morning-after pajama photo shoot? It goes without saying, but I am going to miss these ladies so, so much. Thank goodness for things like the internet and video chatting, right?
