BOTB 2.7.15

By Kate Riley February 7, 2015

Weekend hellos everyone. I’m bracing myself for a the fact that a dozen ten year old girls are descending on my house tonight for a birthday party and sleepover. My daughter turns 11 today (that happened fast!). In truth, all those giggling girls are a delight. They’re entering the tween years and they are all so cute and funny and their sweetness is contagious so I’m looking forward to it.

  1. I love the vintage scarf curtain idea…would be nice to use as occasional room dividers in a shared girls room too. Thanks for sharing.

  2. My daughter is turning 11 in March and we are having a spa evening for her and a few of her friends :) I love this age, she and I are great friends and we are having fun planning her party. Time moves so fast, I am so grateful for her and her happy spirit.

  3. It’s a small world. My daughter turned 11 on the 7th and had a slumber party also! So much laughter, not enough sleep! Oh well.

  4. When I click on any of the links, it goes to Zgallery. How can I get to the sites?
