Sweet 16 was SWEET!
My Sweet 16 + 50 birthday party started with everyone having to find out from each party goer 3 things: 1. What their biggest secret was when they were 16, 2. What they wanted to be when they grew up, 3. What they actually ended up doing/being.
That was eye, and ear, opening! Secrets ranged from wearing padded bras, smoking pot, running away to Hollywood, having crushes on boys that never knew, not being a virgin, inventing “self pleasuring to not wanting to be a Nun like siblings . . .Do I have interesting friends, or what!!!
Next everyone got to bargain, barter, beg and borrow votes for the best dressed “costume categories” of 16 year old-wear.
It’s impossible to capture how much fun my Birthday Party was. Missing are the irreverent comments, laughter, reminiscing and the energy of being 16 years old in a 50-year-old body. (Only one friend was well under 50. She did a descent job of keeping up).
Now watch the slide show for all the rest of the festivities!
Everyone left by 6 pm. We all had early curfews. I was a good girl . . . in bed, lights out, asleep by 9:30 pm. Perfect ending to perfect beginning of my Birthday Season.
