As part of our 2015 Bucket List we wanted to throw a girls Pajama Party for our closest friends! I mean really, how fun is getting together with some of your best girlfriends and doing cliche-girly-girl things?! We planned a super simple menu (see below), set out tons of pillows and blankets, had matching pajamas as party-wearin’-gear / favors for each of the girls, and just planned to chill out, laugh a lot, and unwind with people that we simply love.
We cannot even begin to explain how much fun we had — we had a dance party, lip sync battles, heart-to-hearts…allll the girly things. And we cannot even express how refreshing it was just being with good, solid friends. There was one moment where it was like the Lord just confirmed his delight in our friendships with these girls and we both just knew like ‘YES. These are the friends we need in our lives for the rest of time..’ — it was when we were mid-dance party and one of the girls got a call from her mom asking her to be praying for someone in their life who is going through some junk. When she hung up she told us and instead of just keeping on with our dance party, one of our other precious friends said “Let’s pray for her right now.” So we sat down and together we cried out to Jesus to make a move. And right after, we stood up and danced some more. Is that not what real, authentic friendship should look like or what!? It just made our hearts swell and our love for Jesus grow.
In the morning we woke up to sunshine pouring in the windows, donuts on the table, and milk in our glasses. It was the perfect ending to a super fun, super refreshing girls night in.
