Slumber Parties Are For Friends

This past weekend I somehow managed to drive myself back up to Nashville with half of one eye (ugh. Still having some really bad problems with my good eye after scratching the cornea 3 weeks ago. Driving myself was not only stupid, but probably not safe...). Anyway, it was for a good cause! Miss Lauren's 30th birthday slumber party. Yes, so fun! I had been looking forward to this for well over a month and the guest list didn't disappoint. Partaking in the festivities were: Birthday girl Lauren, Lauren T, Jill, Jen, Jenna, Lisa, Elle and myself. We started the night by chowing down on delicious pizza, then we broke out Cards Against Humanity and entirely too much wine. I brought along the ingredients to whip up a dozen or so New Old Ladies, too. After entirely too much laughing and yelling, we broke out Quelf to play. I was excited to bring it over since no one except Elle had heard of it (how?! It's SO fun!) We played and drank and finally decided it would be a smart move to cut ourselves off after a few hours of hoopin' and hollerin' haha Jill and Lisa headed out while the rest of us plopped down in the living room and chatted until half past 4 in the morning. Seriously, few things are better than long conversations with friends. After a half night's sleep or so we decided to wake up and head over to Nashville Biscuit House for some much needed brunch and coffee. After even more conversation and chit chat (along with some deelish grub), we all loaded up our cars from Lauren's house and went on our merry way. My merry way included driving the 3 blocks to my own house and crashing for a 3 hour nap in the middle of the day. I think you'd be hard pressed to find one of us who didn't need a nap after all of the fun!

We all had so much fun that I think we forgot to take a lot of photos! I borrowed all of the DSLR ones from Miss Jenna (the cutest in all the land!) and the IG images are my own. Jenna also made that amazing birthday cake up there!

It was the perfect mix of middle school and adulthood. I mean, c'mon... a slumber party! So grateful for those silly ladies (and new friends!). I hope our monthly mixers continue well into 2013 and beyond!

Any of y'all partake in adult/friend slumber parties still?

Happiest of birthdays, Lauren! (It was yesterday! Go tell her happy belated!) I hope 30 is the very best year yet!

  2. Awwwww how fun! As a little girl I would plan slumber parties down to the minute details, however I never ever had one! It would be kind of hard now to have a slumber party or partake in one with a little baby...I can't imagine what a "Mommy and me" slumber party would be like!!!

  4. I saw you posting the IG pictures this past weekend and it looked like so much fun!
    Don't remember the last time I had a good girls only slumber party. It's been too long.
    I have never heard of Cards Against Humanity or Quelf and I call myself a board game lover. Looked them both up when you posted and they seem like so much fun!! On my to buy list.

  5. It's sad to say that I have never had a slumber party and I don't think sleeping over a family members house counts. I will one day get to experience one. You are never to old for a slumber party.

  9. Quelf + Cards Against Humanity + Good Friends + Alcohol? Sounds like the best slumber party EVER. I'm a little jealous :)

  10. I'm so happy you came! It was seriously the best night and exactly what I needed. I'm itching to start planning our next get together. I'm hoping for a sewing circle!

  12. Such a good night! I'm especially loving all the pictures that we took on Steve's camera... there's a REALLY good one of Elle & Jen that I hope ends up getting posted because it's the cutest candid haha.

    Also, I loved Quelf and I think it was because I kept thinking it was called Queef. Can't go wrong with queef, amirite.

  14. I remember slumber parties, they were so much fun, I'd definitely be up for an adult slumber party but I haven't had any for a long time. I love playing board games, it is about one of the only competitive type thing I'm good at. I've been wanting Cards Against Humanity forever, I must make it mine. So sorry to hear about your eye, that sounds super painful! It sounds like you all had one fabulous night.

  16. Oh this sounds awesome! In my opinion, you never outgrow slumber parties! I lived with three girls this past semester (four girls, one room...sort of chaos) and every once and a while we would all drag our sheets down and sleep in the middle of the floor (also drinking wine...no adult slumber party is complete without wine) and talk about boys/the future/our lives until we all fell asleep. Ah, nostalgia. this sounds like an awesome birthday party!

  17. Oh my gosh, Cards against Humanity is the best. Just...the best.

  18. Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against
    hackers? I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on.
    Any suggestions?
