So, for the past 3 years my roommate and I have hosted a Galentine’s Day Party. It’s a day (usually a Sunday afternoon) in February where we celebrate our best girlfriends. Everyone is invited to squeeze into our little apartment and eat and talk and best of all: craft! I encourage people to bring things they’ve been working on but I also provide easy crafts for those less craftily inclined. This year I thought I’d add a little something extra, as well as beef up my Valentine’s decorations.
I was inspired by this craft blog post http://misskristurner.com/2014/02/04/kiss-kiss-diy-lipstick-artwork/ But I wanted to include all my guests so I sent out a note to everyone telling them to bring their favorite lipstick/gloss with them for a special craft(reassuring them it would come to no harm). I found a perfect frame at Goodwill for $5.99 and decorated a piece of watercolor paper with the title, date, and appropriate quote. Then the kissing commenced!
Overall the party was a great success, I was a little worried we wouldn’t all fit and I always worry that different groups of people won’t get along, but it all worked out for the best! Can’t wait for next year’s party!
After the party, I drove an hour and a half to Bryan College Station because a beloved friend was attending a work conference there. Since Jessica lives in Florida and works ALL THE TIME, this was an excellent excuse to spend some time together. Leah, Britt, and Pete drove down from Fort Worth and almost the whole gang was back together. It was great, we laughed and caught up on all the frankly life changing things that have happened in the year+ since we’d seen each other (Peace Corps volunteering, house buying, going back to school, job promotions etc.) and talked about how old we’re getting. Though frankly, I can’t see it.
Okay, it’s dinner time so let me leave you with some kittens (er- they’re a year old now so I guess that makes them cats?)
