A new tradition (started in October) for our Girl’s Week trips is to celebrate our Favorite Things. Our January trip’s event brought me to tears, it was so good. Everyone was thoughtful with what they brought, and everything seemed to work out just perfectly.
For instance, I got pink polka dot socks and Missy got star socks. I got pink Sharpies and a jewel that was shaped like a foot.
Celebrating favorite things with some of my favorite people (even some I just met!) is a true blessing. Everyone should have a “Favorite Things” party some time in your life.
Here’s what you need:
Friends and/or Family to share favorite items with
A spend limit (sure, we all love diamonds and fancy cars, but we’re not about to buy those things for everyone at the party)
Your Favorite Thing – bring one for everyone at the party and be prepared to talk about why it’s your favorite thing
That’s it. So easy and fun. Share, be prepared to laugh, be prepared to cry. I did, and I am not ashamed to admit it.
This time around, I gave everyone 100 calorie chocolate covered pretzels (because I love my healthy lifestyle but still NEED chocolate and salty in my life) and hand sanitizers that clip to a purse (Greg was just fighting pnumonia, so I love to fight germs AND I sell purses and totes that I LOVE). I got…
Bath/body goodies – homemade!, homemade chocolate chip cookies/a friendship recipe (tears galore), a Resting Place decal, Sharpies, socks, a prayer box (with an owl!), homemade note pad, spoon with an AMAZING chocolate fudge recipe, pendant. Thank you, ladies, for being such a precious part of my life.
If you had a Favorite Things Party, what would you bring?
