Lexi's 7th Birthday Spa Party

Happy 7th Birthday Lulu!

For Lexi's 7th Birthday Party, we decided to go with a SPA theme! She lovesss going to the nail salon with me so I knew it would be something she would love! We decided on the theme in the Spring so I have been slowly gathering items up until now! I asked Lexi to pick her top three activities she wanted to do at the party and she chose: Nails, Facials, & to make Bath Bombs!

We ran out of time for the bath bombs but we sure had fun packing in everything that we did during the party! When the girls got there they all got their robes & headed up stairs to our playroom/spa area! We put on a movie in the Theater Room and then got started on the first batch of girls nails! Luckily I had some friends there to help paint!! The girls were in and out eating and chatting and I'm pretty sure they had a great time! After all the girls nails were done we started on facials! While they had cucumbers on their eyes, we played a little Name memory game where they had to recite the 4 friends sitting next to them (two on the left, two on the right) By the time they were done reciting names, they were all ready for their mask to be wiped off! We then sang to Lex and cut the cake and did presents! At the bottom of the post I included details for where we got items!!

-- After searching since Spring time I have noticed the Dollar Tree usually gets a new design each month it seemed.. or depending on the store.. so if you find cute ones snag them up because I had seen a ton of different ones float through their and some were pretty hideous! But its a steal of a deal when they carry cute basic ones!

Summer Crab Boil

Last Thursday I threw the second half of Tyson's birthday party when we got back home from our 2 week trip to Idaho.. He spent his birthday on Tuesday in Idaho, and that morning in his last present I had attached a clue which led him through a scavenger hunt.. at the end of the scavenger hunt I cordially invited him to his own surprise birthday party that I had been planning since before we had left. We flew home that next day & I had less than 24 hours to pull off his Crab Boil Birthday Party so I knew there was no time for trying to keep things a surprise on top of all that! Plus I really have no idea how Tyson usually does all the crab & boiling it! This is now our 3rd crab boil party we've thrown & we absolutely love doing them! So we got home Wednesday at 1 in the morning and I woke up bright and early to finish gathering supplies for the party that night! I had been shopping before we left & I shopped online at Amazon & World Market too while we were gone so I had plenty of packages at home waiting for me! AND I could not have done it without our sweet friends who all brought side dishes so all we were left with food wise, was the meat!
I'll attach the menu below if you want to know what all we included in our crab boil!

Crab Legs (we bought 15lb of snow crab which fed about 20 people)
Kielbasa Sausages
