MNI (mom's night in!)

In my very special stay at home mom's group, we had a MNI (mom's night in) last week. Geena was kind enough to host it at her house, and she really went all out! We were all supposed to arrive in our jammies with slippers on and be prepared to relax and pamper ourselves (just what every mom should do ALL the time!)
I was the first one there...didn't read the fine print, and when Geena opened the door in her pretty red flowered pj's, I just winced, handed her the food, turned around and went home to find pj's that were clean (that was the hard part)
10 minute later I was back in my winter pjs and looking at the prettiest dainty display ever! geena had put pretty pink tulle all over the house, with silk orchids, and tealight candles everywhere! It was so romantic, I felt like telling her to share it with her hubby and not waste it on us! lol She even had the fireplace lit, and it was so warm and cozy, I was getting ready to fall asleep on the couch when Darci arrived in HER pjs. Once everyone got there and ooh'd and aah'd, we had a healthy dinner (because we're doing a fitness challenge in our group) and so we had a green salad, and I made a lite casserole. We had a tupperware Peach cobbler with lite ice cream for dessert.

once we were done eating, we sat by the fire with our BIORE clear pore strips on our noses, and we used Avon nail strips to do manicures and pedicures. It was fun teaching the girls how to do it, and when they saw that they could get their nails and toes done in 10 min with no mess, they were totally stoked!

After I freed my nose from the pore strip, geena put a mask on me. Fun going on, not so fun coming
I was able to get mine off in one piece, and lucky me, darci had her camera for a picture of my skin coming off! lol

Geena also got the ingredients so we could all make sugar scrubs for our hands to take fun!

Overall, this was one of the best events ever with our group. Only 6 of us showed up, but we had a blast and laughed the night away. I hope we can do these more often!

Those are some cute toenails. But....that mask is right at the top of my "grossest things I've ever seen" list. Thanks for sharing, you nut job! OMG, her decorating with the pink and the flowers is LOVELY!
