teatime at Nataleas!

Natalea hosted a fun valentine tea party yesterday. Weve been looking forward to it for a few weeks now and Nataleas been planning and decorating and getting everything ready for it ever since she decided to have it. I wish I would have taken pictures of the decorations around her house, because you would have all been amazed! She has such a knack for decorating and setting up little vignettes in every corner of her beautiful home.
We had a great time. Some of Nataleas family was there and some of her closest friends that she grew up with. Her friends Ellie and Tara are funny!
Sandy from sandyscreations, Julie ann from kitchen floor creations, and Jenny (be cheery) from flickr, were all there. Sandy and her husband came for near toronto in canada. They drove a couple hours to Nats and spent the night there last night. Thank God we had nice weather.. well, COLD, but at least no storms like some of you had. Sandys hubby left her at Nats for the afternoon and went shopping at Gander Mountain!
I met up with Jenny and her sister Missy in Amhearst and rode to Nats with them. Jennys sister is as sweet as Jen. But she wasnt feeling well. I hope she's feeling better today.
It was also very nice to meet Julie Ann. She lives in Tonawanda with is only half an hour or so from Nats. Julie Ann and I were partners in heathers inspiration box swap and she made me the sweetest box!
Natalea spoiled us with gifts and great food! she made this earl grey cake with cherrys nad choc to die for! (click on nats or sandys links to see more pics of Nats house and of the cake!) Nat made a wonderful punch that I could have drinken about 10 glasses of. Of course, we also had a little valentine swap as well. So much cute stuff!
It was nice just to hang around relaxing with the girls.
Nataleas daughter Scarlet is a hoot! She loves to have her picture taken and strikes some pretty funny poses. doesnt she look just like Natalea?

I definitely ate a few more points then I should have yesterday! Hopefully they wont show up on the scale on tuesday! But how can you pass up something that looks like this??
Well anyways.. thank you Natalea for a fun time. We had some good laughs! and thats what getting together with friends is all about!
Have a great week everyone!

I just knew I could count on a good dose of kitty pleasure, along with some kitty tunes! The girlfriend tea, one of the most important events of the year I bet!
On Friday, you'll have to come over and bring the kitties and read the Kitty Cat Chat Newspaper in the Enchanted Playhouse!
