barbie party

What little girl didn't grow up loving Barbie? I still love Barbie and was so delighted my mother kept a few for me to pass on to my baby girl. She loves dressing them up, taking them for a ride in their car, and fixing their hair just right.

Little Miss L. was beyond excited when I showed her an invitation to her friend's upcoming Barbie-themed birthday party. As a parent, I should have known better than to show her the invitation weeks in advance because every morning she would wake up running towards me with a  big smile on her face and ask if today was the day she gets to go to the Barbie party. Well, after a long wait, the big day finally arrived this past weekend.

My friend Sara sure knows how to throw a party, especially when it involves making several little girls extremely happy! There were feathers, pink, glitz and glamour all over the place. If it wasn't already the perfect party, Barbie made a special appearance for a magic show, some dancing, jewelry making, balloon animals and face painting.

You know it was an awesome party when your daughter is still talking about it days later! Here is a sneak peak at the fun we had...
