Raindrops on Roses? Sleepovers, no dozes!

Rules:  Write for only five minutes. Don’t edit. Don’t over think. Don’t stifle your creativity.  Ready, set, GO!

A few of my favorite things...Having people visit my home...and making new friends.

I'm headed to a sleepover party tonight.  I'm officially old...I'm a chaperon.  I also can't remember the last time I've been to one.  I'm SO excited.  We're borrowing the church's green screen to do a photo shoot...black and whites, etc.  We're making adorable tote bags.  We're going to do pedicures and manicures.  I'm going to get to know all the teen girls at church a lot better.

True, true...I'm going to be totally wiped out later.  Because, let's face it, the name is dumb.  No ONE sleeps (much) at a sleep over.  My dear friend, the host, swears we'll be in bed by midnight...but she's never had ME at a sleepover before either!  HAHA!

The really funny part of all of this... my in-laws are coming for a visit Saturday morning.  Yeah, I'm pretty much a cleaning MACHINE today!  I know, they're family...but if people are coming to MY house...It's going to be clean.  In truth, I probably clean more for family than for friends.  I'm not sure what that means.

The answer will be...LOTS and LOTS of coffee...and the occasional toothpick to hold my eyes open!  Well, and a lot of efficient planning and prayer beforehand.  For the visit...AND the sleepover!!  I already have all my nail polish packed!!  HA!

Love sleepovers...how fun - yes, sleepover is not really a good name. Pyjama party works I think....Enjoy :)

I don't think I could do that any more -- I'm a zombie without enough sleep. Have fun!
