we spent sunday afternoon celebrating my daughter's 7th birthday a few days early at a fun little spot called sweet and sassy. this spa caters to little girls of all ages and gives them the princess day of their dreams. e got to pick one friend to join her and she chose our neighbor j who she spends most afternoons playing with. the two girls got their hair done, manicures and pedicures, and of course, LOTS of glitter. when they finished they got to walk the runway, which was their favorite part, i think! after their spa day we went out to lunch together. it was so fun seeing them giggle and enjoy all the fuss and attention they received. this was e's first time going to a spa and i could tell she thought it was "magical"...we waited to do anything like this until she showed interest in it. as i've said before--we are not fans of encouraging our children to grow up any faster than they already are. and i'd say from her excitmement it was worth the wait.
