So get comfy and slip on your PJ's. Enjoy the night!!! But be warned, don’t be the first to fall asleep – you may get smacked in the head with a book!

  1. Your daughter is just beautiful!
    Thanks for the invite!!! Love all of your movie, books and music choices and...Ian Somerholder smoking hot! We should do a joint post or a multi joint post with your other sleepover guests where we answer the questions under your items to discuss. very fun post.

  2. What a great idea. Those photos of your daughter are wonderful. I hope she enjoys her sleepover - happy birthday to Azia.

  3. Happy Birthday to Azia! Your photos are beautiful. :)

  4. Squee - you invited me to your sleepover. That's SO nice!! Gosh, I was always one of the first to fall asleep. Just don't stick my hand in a bowl of warm water.
    I'm down with the music choices and I'd be captain of Team Edward (and insist that we add RPatz to the list of hot guys we'd drool over).
    And then I'd die when you started talking about Abandon b/c even though I own it, I haven't had time to read it yet and I really want to.

    Hope your DD has an awesome birthday and that YOU'RE able to get some sleep amidst the chaos.

  5. I'm so honored to make such a short list! Thanks, Dawn. I'm there--or here! *Passing virtual popcorn* Let the book talk begin!

  6. You guys are having way too much fun! Sob! Always the wallflower, always the one who's left out. Feel sorry for me? Good.

  7. Yay! I haven't been to a sleepover in twenty years - thanks for inviting me :)

    Gotta go. I have some reading to catch up on so I can join in the book discussion...

    Thanks Dawn!

  8. Thanks everybody for coming!!! Jennifer that's a great idea. I'd love to see what everyone else comes up with for entertainment.

    C.Lee, don't feel left out. Join the fun!!! Everybody's invited.

    Oh and thanks everyone, Azia is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside and as her Mother that is so important to me.

  9. Your daughter is gorgeous! Have a nice sleepover then!

  10. Yes, your girl is a beauty. And I am smitten at the idea of a sleepover and terribly jeaous I had to read about it! :-) I thought the list inspired, raw fun. It might have been fun to see the other bloggers reading a short something of thier writings and then posting the videos.. Enjoyed this, even tho I am only reading and not dancing on the tables! Smiles.

  11. Happy Birthday to your beautiful girl Azia!
    What a fun night ;)

  12. Hey Brenda, don't sit back and watch - join the fun. I like your suggestions!!!

    Hey Michelle, thanks for coming!!!

  13. You are too cool! We are so NOT too old for a sleepover!
    I would absolutely have to talk about my secret husband Colin Firth ad how the only image I will ever have of him is of Mark Darcy in "Bridget Jones' Diary"...*sigh*
    Could we gossip about Rob Lowe's new book, "Stories I Only Tell My Friends"?
    Your daughter is when my man on the side, Timbaland, comes to crash, we need to keep her far away from him...not only is he musically gifted, but he's loaded...not letting go of that one till the well runs dry! LOL
    Happy Birthday to Azia! I'll consider sharing Avery from Greys Anatomy, but only for her birthday!
    Thanks for the invite! I feel like one of the popular girls!

  14. Yes, I forgot Rob Lowe wrote a book. Plus, have you seen him on the cover of that magazine, can't recall which one. He was hot!!! Not too sure about Timbaland being hot, but he is loaded!!! And I don't watch Grey's Anatomy so I had to google Avery. He is portrayed by Jessie Williams and I'd have to say, Oh yeah. Eye candy for sure. I'm about to go back and look at the pic again. Don't tell my husband. ; )

  15. Sounds like you had a fantastic time. Here's to more sleepovers. :)

  16. Thanks Beverly, sleepovers are a load of fun.

  17. Your daughter is a doll! And an equally cute post.

    Now you have me thinking about my hot guy list... :)

  18. Thanks, Wosushi. I'd like to see your list. I'll have to scoot over to your site to see it. Do you have pic's? I should have put up pic's. But maybe not, I'd probably spend too much time looking at them myself. LOL

  19. WOW! Amazing! I love your list. That's awesome. I am in love with Idris Elba. OMG! Channing Tatum is hot stuff, too. I love your music choices as well. Your daughter is a beauty to behold. Our babies grow up so fast.

  20. Oh Yeah, Idris Elba **let me wipe the drool from my bottom lip** Channing Tatum...too hot!!! Thanks for commenting. And yes, they grow so fast *tear*

  21. Hello! New here!

    What an awesome idea ... virtual sleep over. I may have to spread this around ... too fun to keep it a secret!

    Thanks for the good read!

  22. Hi Sophie Li, nice to meet you. Spread the word about the sleepover to your hearts content. One rule: you MUST have fun. I had loads of it!!! Thanks for commenting.
