Adult slumber party ideas don't always turn out as planned...
I was recently fortunate enough to get to attend a fun girls night out complete with slumber party! One of the moms in our neighborhood has a family lake house, and she invited all of us to come up for an overnight trip.
We ended up with 6 able to go, and carpooled for the 2 hour drive to get there.
As we were making plans there was one thing we all agreed on very quickly. We all agreed that no cooking was allowed! Everyone brought snacks and beverages to share, but otherwise we were going to eat out.
We also each brought some board games and movies to share.
We were looking forward to some mommy "ME" time - time away from the kids, the spouse, and the chores and duties that come with all of that. We love our lives, but were looking for a little break!
The lake house was great! Plenty of places for us all to sleep on beds, sofas and trundles.
We visited for a while and then went to the lake's marina grill restaurant to get something to eat (remember...no cooking!)
After we hung out there for a while, we went back to the lake house and built a fire in the firepit in the front yard. We sat and talked and talked and talked. For hours.
But it was so wonderful. We each to got to know each other better.
What did we talk about?
Our childhoods. Our summer vacations then and now. How we met our husbands and how we received our marriage proposals. We talked about our hopes and dreams for the future.
We never got around to playing those games or watching those movies, but it didn't matter.
This adult sleepover was perfect for what we needed. A "cleansing" of the soul.
"How wild and crazy did you get?" asked my husband when I came back home.
"Just the right amount" I replied!
The point of this story is that it is great to plan for some fun activities, but sometimes the beauty of adult slumber party ideas is that you don't have to follow any rules. Let things happen naturally and it will be perfect!
