My Niece’s 18th Birthday, Part Two: A Surprise Adventure for Four!

A quick reminder:  I am hosting a Lilla Rose blog party through February 28th.  If you are interested in purchasing some of their lovely hairpieces, you can register as a guest here and check out their products.

After my niece and her friends finished eating their lunches, I sent them out of the house on a surprise adventure!  I planned three destinations with my niece’s preferences in mind.

When the girls were ready to leave, I handed my niece three envelopes.  In each envelope was a poetic instruction sheet, a map to the surprise location, and money to cover the expenses.  The girls were to open the first envelope before leaving the house and could not open the next envelope until they were finished with the previous activity.


My niece excitedly opened the first envelope, which read:

Your first destination is a colorful place.
I’m sure it will put a smile on your face.
During your visit you will feel pampered.
Your beauty and style will not be hampered.
Follow the map to your destination. You have appointments made for a special service for all of you.

The first location was a nail salon where each girl received a manicure.

The second location was Maggie Moo’s, my niece’s FAVORITE ice cream store in the “WORLD”!

The third location was For Love 21, an affordable accessories store.  Each girl was given $10 to spend.

The girls had a BLAST!

According to my niece, it was “one of the most fun days of their lives”!
