Remember when you were a little girl and you invited friends over to spend the night? Didn't you have so much fun playing, laughing, snacking and sleeping very little? Well why not continue to do them as adults?!?
Ever year there is a group of women, family and friends, that get together to have a night of fun. We all bring more food than we can eat and we laugh into the wee hours of the morning, far later than any of us normally stay awake!
When we first started we would play games, but our new tradition is to have an auction to raise money for a charity close to our hearts. We all bring a bag of choice items...think white elephant type gifts, and we bid on them like an auction. It's so much fun to see what people rummage out of their cupboards and dusty garages.
After hours of bidding on items, drinking and snacking we eventually all hit the hay, trying to get at least a few hours of beauty rest.
When the sun rises we all wake for some more eating, yes, more eating. We have a full breakfast spread with muffins, egg bake, fruit and of course mimosas.
We then all start to pack up our cars, say our good-byes and head back to our day to day lives. Only to gether again next year for more fun and laughter!
It's a great tradition that has started and will continue in our family for years to come!
