A Very Special Girly Lunch!

I am not a very girly girl.  I am practical and wear  jeans and a comfortable cotton t-shirt most days.  I rarely wear a dress and only if I have to.  I don't color or fix my hair.  I don't own hair gel or hair spray. I don't own makeup.  With me what you see is what you get.  I also don't often think of doing anything very feminine with my daughters...who do happen to like to curl and fix their hair.  Like to dress up and love to wear jewelry.

My sister has two grown sons.  She has run the gamut of base ball games, band practices, legos and everything boy.  While growing up and even sister is a girly girl.  Just sayin, she dresses amazing.  She recently kept my niece "A" for a few days and called asking to invite my girls out, to go with them, for a girly lunch at Sweet Tree's Bakery and Cafe.  My girls were beyond excited!
They primped and giggled, asking each others opinion on what dress and jewelry to wear and how to do their hair.  They got all dressed up in their girly best and enjoyed being spoiled to a lovely lunch out all together!  The atmosphere is very feminine and special.

Even the bathroom is girly special.

They ate in girly style!

Then chose a special dessert to bring home.

Thank you my sister for taking the time to make a happy special memory for my girls.  These are the types of things I would never think of doing myself with them.  You always have the best, special ideas! 

These cousins will have this sweet memory forever!  What a gift!

Matthew 5:16  Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.



  1. Wow! The girls are beautiful. Totally get that "not being into girly things" though ....

    1. Thanks Julie. I think they clean up well too! But I guess I am biased as I am their mom. I pray all is well with you and yours and that Alan's week is going well for him away. Blessings!

    1. Hey cindie! So good to hear from you! Praying all is well with you and yours! Blessings!

  3. Oh my goodness~ FUN FUN FUN!!! I am so not a girly girl either. My daughter Angel who is with Jesus was a Beautician! I gave birth to a Beautician!! When she was a teen and I had meetings to go to she would remind me to brush my hair! ha! ha! She'd stand by the door with the hair brush!
    We bought a tea set, lace gloves and beautiful white aprons from a Home School Forum. The 3 oldest girls love them! They get all dressed up at home and serve tea. Then Isaiah pretends he's stopping by to join them. :o)

    1. How wonderful to have your daughter become a beautician! Did she practice on you and your family? I have known a few young ladies that went to school to be one and practiced on anyone they could! As you have shared about her she sounds like she was a wonderful person. Its very hard to loose a child and you have lost many. The tea set sounds like a wonderful thing for your girls. I should let mine do that more often. Blessings!
