On Tuesday night Vanessa and I decided to have a slumber party, with me staying at her home. We had never done anything like it before, where the evening became a stereotypical "girl's night". We loved every minute of it! This is how our twenty-four hours looked:
Shopping at American Vintage for evening wear. I bought some of the loveliest items, which I'll share in a future post!
Flower browsing at the market. We also picked up ingredients for our elaborate breakfast the next morning, and champagne!
We ate one of our favorite pizzas with sun-dried tomatoes, basil, parmesan and garlic. To drink we had a Mexican favorite, Tamarind Soda.
We painted our nails in anticipation of Vanessa's graduation the next day and then watched a movie! I chose light-purple glitter polish.
At midnight, it was time for peach champagne with raspberries. Then we worked on a playlist for our summer party on Saturday.
We stayed up quite late talking about many things, and then at one point we made s'mores with burnt marshmallows.
The next morning we made crepes and put out our favorite breakfast items like French bread with apricot jam.
Breakfast was long and leisurely. Our crepes had lemon curd, powdered sugar and berries on top. Coffee was perfection too! Then I went home and rested before Vanessa's graduation. She had been going to college on and off for nearly twelve years while working full time. We were anxiously waiting for this moment for a long time and I'm so glad it happened!
Twenty-four hours after we first started our girl's day, Vanessa became a graduate. Believe it or not, our day continued into the night with even more celebration meals and so on. It has been a busy time but the good kind of busy! x
