What do you get when you have four awesome women and 6 girly girls (one of whom just turned 8)?
A spa birthday party!
My dear friend Monica manned the facial station. Here Maya enjoys a candle-light facial, complete with relaxing spa music (thanks to the Dan Gibson station on Pandora)
My awesome MIL manned the pedicure station. Here is Joelle, getting her tootsies scrubbed, rubbed, and painted.
Ariel worked the make-up station. She had the arduous task of creating a look for little girls that was one step below clown/streetwalker. There is just nothing subtle about an 8 year old in make up.
Wendy did a fantastic job manning the manicure station, complete with an incomprehensible Asian accent. She even stayed in the lines, which was particuarly impressive, given that after the 3rd manicure, she was high off acetone fumes.
I am so grateful to have such awesome women in my life. Amelle's party was a smashing success. At least two of the party-goers expressed that it was "the best party" they had ever been to.
Oh, what did I do? I got in line for the spa treatment, of course. Just kidding (though I wanted to). I was the MC of sorts, getting girls from one station to the next, getting supplies/clean water, and facilitating the make-your-own-pizza station.
