Weekend Wrap-Up Vol. 5: Sleepover and Fashion Show

Ya’ll… This was a go go go weekend and I am exhausted just thinking about it. But let’s recap.



After a long day at work, I headed home to get ready for one of my best friend’s engagement party. And then our babysitter, i.e. my brother had to cancel. He got called into work, so we just loaded up E and she was the hit of the party. Needless to say Friday was a later evening for us.


I woke up and taught dance and twirling and then came home and got ready for the Mommy & Me Sleepover. Yup, we had 6 moms and their sweet girls coming to our house for the girls’ first sleepover. These are all girls from E’s school and so they started arriving between 5 and 6pm. We ordered pizza for dinner and some of the moms brought sides including salad, queso and chips and fruit.

We also decorated cookies and crowns, watched tons of movies and had some late night snacking. I think we finally were all to sleep by 11:30 p.m., only to be up by 7am! But here are few pics.

The girls had an absolute blast! But, this mama was exhausted. So, I had tons of coffee, cleaned my house and got ready for Sunday’s event.


My sorority. Alpha Chi Omega, does a fashion show each year to raise money for our local women's center. This as the 28th year and we raised $115,000. E also got to be a model this year with 3 of her best friends, whose mamas are also alums! The girls had so much fun getting their hair and make up done and strutting down the runway. They were the hit of the show!

Needless to say, it was quite the weekend and we are exhausted. E is sick with a cold, I am still trying to recover from sickness and well, we need a vacation lol. But, this week is a short one for me since I leave for DC Friday to shower my BOFF and her sweet baby to be!

How was your weekend?
