The Height of the Girlyness

Ohhhhhhhh my gosh.  I am going to die.  Too many things to blog and not enough energy to stay awake to write any of it and it just keeps piling up more and more and more....but that's a good thing because it means that there are lots of fun things happening in our lives these days....right?

Deep Breath.  I can do this.

Bitty had a spectacularly girly weekend...two weeks ago.  (It's okay, I'm going to catch up.)  For starters, she has been in a ballet class all year and I know I've written blog posts about each little performance at the end of every semester.  But this time was a little different.  Our wonderful teacher Miss Kim decided to up the ante and have the girls dress in uniform costumes and have real ballet hair and make up and stuff.  This all sounded fun except for one little thing - I had never been able to figure out how to produce one of those perfect little ballet buns.  I tried and tried and generally ended up with a big old door knob perched on the top of Bitty's head.  But when I heard about Miss Kim's request for a perfect ballet bun with no wispies I knew I had to take action.  Want some good advice?  If there is ever anything you can't figure out how to do go look on youtube.  I learned how to do a perfect ballet bun!!  It shouldn't be that big of a deal but it really is for me. And Bitty was so super excited to have make up and ballerina hair and just the right costume.  She looked lovely.

Her Auntie Margaret came which was a real treat.

Also going on that weekend was the birthday party of a dear friend of hers who happens to have a super mom.  I love her super mom - I say that with love and respect, not in the snide way I usually use that phrase.  This mom friend of mine only throws a real birthday bash for her children on their 5th, 8th and 12th birthdays. And when she throws those birthdays she does it RIGHT.  For her little daughter she put together a vintage tea party and you have to understand that this was no ordinary party.  In fact, she blogged about it HERE. It's pretty awesome.  I'll even go so far as to call it pinterest-worthy.  Bitty had an absolute ball and was completely darling.  I'm going to shut up now and just post some pictures of her girly-girl weekend extraordinaire.

Oh how I've missed your blogging. Contented sigh.

We love a good tea party around here. And ballet hair. Ah, the joy of girls!

Run, don't walk, to your nearest Claire's. Buy one of their 'sock bun' things, which is actually a donut shaped thing made of netting stuff. It has changed our lives around here. Perfect, full buns with very little effort.
