Pajamas & Pancakes Party
Hey, hey, hey! I’m sorry things are a little quiet around Cupcakes n Crunches this week. Last night we made the game time decision to go look at Christmas lights at Lake Lanier and we didn’t get home until 10pm. I feel like despite my best efforts to immerse myself in the holiday fun, somehow the season slipped away from me, so I’m trying really hard to soak up these last few days of Christmas fun with my babies. (Although today they were super grumpy so I was all, “when the heck is nap time?!”) #fulldisclosure I’m hoping to keep the blog alive over the next few days but I may be tuning in and out and I kind of hope you’ll be doing the same and you’ll be swept away in family fun and holiday activities. 🙂
On Tuesday morning, Atlas and I headed to a ‘pajama and pancakes’ party at my friend Nicole’s house. Andi Rose stayed with Dave since she is wild and cannot be trusted in public places (or any places, really). But she sure is cute…
The kid-friendly get together also served as a cookie exchange and each guest was asked to bring 24 cookies to swap.
When we arrived in our pajamas (can I get a big ole’ ‘hallelujah’ for not having to get dressed before leaving the house?!), Nicole had pancakes, fruit and cheese for the kids to eat and a delicious frittata with a side of the most amazing cheese grits for the adults. She also had a coffee bar set up + the world’s best apple cider (it seriously tasted like Christmas in a cup and I couldn’t get enough).
After the kids ate, they played their hearts out while the women sipped on coffee and chatted the morning away (in our pj’s!!). It was such a lovely way to spend a Tuesday morning and I didn’t feel ‘guilty’ for relaxing with my girlfriends because Atlas was having a blast playing with all the kids.
Nicole also had cute Christmas crafts set up for the kids to do and then before we all left, we loaded up containers with cookies to take home.
I just wanted to share this idea on the blog, because I thought it was so adorable and perhaps some of you may want to recreate it with your girlfriends.
Oh, and the beautiful pictures of the cookies in this post were snapped by my girlfriend, Jessica. I stole them from her Facebook because the only photo I took during the party was of Atlas & his little girlfriend. Jess is super talented behind the camera. So, to summarize, I have 1 friend who is the hostess with the mostess and 1 friend who can take gorgeous photos…and my talent is…eating my bodyweight in cookies…
