What better excuse for a party is there, than an impending wedding! I got myself all dressed up, waved goodbye to Muddy Hubby and the Muddy Kids and headed off on Saturday to a Kitchen Tea/Hens Party. I had thought it would be a nice reserved affair, it soon got interesting, competitive and lots of fun.
We got to design wedding dresses out of toilet paper, newspaper and garbage bags. Our design had a lovely sweetheart neckline with a long train and pink veil (which we won as a bonus) and of course won us first prize. I learnt some new games and that I'm not very creative when it comes to poetry! We strapped on tennis balls in panty hose and relay raced across the hall, again we were a winner! Can you tell I'm a teeny bit competitive?!?! Then we got offered lovely cake, which I just couldn't bring myself to eat.
It was a day for female laughter, catching up with friends and even having a champagne or two. I haven't had a day like that in a while, I came home very relaxed (although that could have been the champagne) and reinvigorated. For me a good girly catch up will recharge my batteries. It was a day all about the bride to be (except I got some bonuses out of it), now I can't wait for the wedding to have even more fun!

Linking up for the first time with Sonia at Life, Love and Hiccups for Wonderful Weekends.
Did you enjoy a good catch up with the girls this weekend?
