A Royal Wedding Slumber Party!

 
In honor of Will & Kate's wedding, my fabulous S-I-L hosted a Royal Wedding Slumber party.  It was me (aka Lady Mary), my sis in law Vickie (aka Lady Elizabeth), my mom in law (aka the Queen Mum), my niece in law Ava (aka Lady Jane). 
(I have to be honest, and say that I really wasn't into the wedding hoop-la, until Vickie planned this party.  She even emailed hubby before she invited me, to make sure it would be ok for me to come over on a 'school night'.  Of course hubby didn't care!  He's cool like that.)
You can't have a theme party without props...so what do you wear to a Royal Wedding Slumber party?  Why, Princess Veils, or course!  And pearls!  Lots of pearls!

Complete with mimosas...
thanks to the Queen Mum for getting that cork out!


My other niece Kayla joined in.  Please don't mistake the smile for happiness.  She really didn't quite know what to make out of her crazy aunts and grandma.

It was actually quite eerie...like something out of a horror movie...like ghost brides eating finger sandwiches and drinking mimosas by candlelight.  We couldn't stop laughing at how it all must look if someone looked into the front windows.

 




I think we laughed for 5 minutes before we could get this shot. 
Vickie was tripping me out with her serious looks.





Lady Jane arrives


Here we are at 1am!

And the next morning...

We had a blast!  And we laughed at ourselves...A LOT!
We can't wait till Harry gets married!

Girl's Day Out


M and I were due for a much needed Girl's Day.  She is always asking 'to go somewhere'.  Everyday after school...'where are we going?'  Home, dear.  'BUT I WANT TO GO SOMEWHERE!'

Keep in mind we run and gun a lot.  We are busy.  We 'go somewhere' at least 3 times a week.  So I knew she would love a girls day--just for me and her--'to go somewhere'!

When she saw me in my dress, she wanted to wear a dress like me, with a necklace like me, and wear her hair like me.  I hate to say that surprises me...but sometimes I get so caught up in the day to day grind, that I forget that she is watching me!

We were shopping for an Easter dress for her.  I had never taken her to get her nails done, so I knew she would love that.  She picked a blue glitter and purple glitter polish.  This girl knows what she wants.


Waiting...



I think she messed up 5/10 nails before we got out of there.  :)

 
We had a good day at the mall! 
One of the best moments of the day:  we were sitting down to eat our chik-fil-a in the food court, and she casually leaned over to me and gave me a kiss.  She said, I love you mommy. 
Sigh.  Ok.  I guess I'm doing ok as a mommy.  I haven't scarred her yet.
