Will you join me for tea?

Hello there everybody!

I live in one of the strangest states. For the past two days it has been sunny and warm, even slightly hot if you stayed outside for a long time. But Montanans know that that weather is not here to stay, not in the spring. So, today it is snowing and slushing and being very wet, and I figured it would be a good day to stay inside and knit and read and have some nice hot tea.

Speaking of tea, my tea party was such a blast! I had such an amazing time and I got some cool birthday presents (my friends know so well what to get me!) and it was just so much fun. The food was fantastic, thanks to my wonderful mom who helped me plan the whole thing out. We had scones, cucumber sandwiches, baguette sandwiches, strawberries, and a wonderfully delicious lemon yogurt loaf cake. The cake was so delicious and moist that I had a very hard time waiting for my friends to come so that we could eat. :)

We were all dressed up, which was hilarious and perfect, and Kyra got some very cool pictures of us!

We each had a different tea cup with different saucers and I made a fabric napkin for each of us. Plus, we got to use my great-grandmother's beautiful crystal, which was so fun. :)

Kyra did my hair, and she did a very good job!

We went outside and posed with our bikes, since we each have an awesome cruiser bike. :)

I really love this one of all our feet. I mean, just look at how cute our shoes are!

Kenzie's mom made these amazing sugar cubes for us, and I just could not get over how adorable they were! We absolutely loved them. :)

Cam got me this super fantastic jewelry holder that has a little giraffe on it! It's perfect for all of my rings. :)

She also got me the cutest candle ever. It looks like a book and says A Guide To Afternoon Tea Service. How perfect is that?

And Kenzie, well she is super talented, so she got me this cute yellow teapot and knitted a tea cozy for it! It was the first time she'd ever knitted anything like that. She is very ambitious in her choices of knitting projects. :)

We talked. We ate chili. We played Sequence. We even went on a bike ride to the park while we were all dolled up. It was so much fun. I'm so lucky to have the best friends in the world. :)

So, after that long, fun day we settled down to watch New Year's Eve (which is just a great movie) and then went to sleep, after much chatting, of course. :)

  1. Awesome, awesome post Maddy. A perfect 'telling' of your special day. I loved it!

  2. Hehe, that last picture is just perfect. :) and I had the most wonderful time with you guys! The lemon cake was obviously AMAZING but I must give those cucumber sandwhiches some recognition. I could have eaten the whole plate. :) And in that picture of us by the tree, look how silly my smile is! Haha, my lip must have gotten stuck on top of my braces. :) hehehe...
