Sip Happens Party {Animals at a Slumber Party!}

This was my first Sip Happens Party.  So, needless to say, I didn't really know what I was getting myself into.  I didn't know any of the girls until our last get together at Kelly's home for the Java Jamboree.  We had so much fun then and all of the girls were so welcoming and sweet, that I knew I would have an amazing time with them again.   But there is something about wine that allows you to really get to know each other on another level!!  And I think this was my first "slumber party" since I was about 16!  As soon as I walked in and saw the wine glasses literally as big as my head, I knew I would get along with these girls just fine!!

The hostess with the mostess was Val of Chicken Scratch Blog.  She decided to do a "slumber party" theme with everything from chick flicks playing in the background (Mean Girls and Sex & the City) to pizza and a popcorn bar.  The theme for the #SipHappensParty wine was an animal theme.  All the wines either included an animal in the name or on the label.  Always thinking of others, Val even provided us with #swag bags to take home! 

Val -- Story Time!!

The #SWAG we received!  Oh, and a really cute headband that Val  made but I didn't take a picture of it because I am currently wearing it (and have been everyday since I got it)!  Even Aleks of A Slocum Story blog was sweet enough to put together a goodie bag for all of us with a "slumber party" theme!  SO thoughtful! 

I was snacking on the Dove chocolate from Aleks' goodie bag as I was writing this post.  And the phrase in the wrapper was just perfect!!  My heart smiled!!  Thanks Aleks!

Amidst the chatting...the laughing until I was almost crying...the shenanigans...and the world premiere of Kelly's soon-to-be #1 hit song "Wave To Me"...I completely forgot to pay attention to what wine I was drinking for an overall review.  Which is kind of the whole point of this party!   I guess I can just say that they were ALL good.  I only drank the white wines.  I like red wine, but white it usually my wine of choice.  I'm really not picky when it comes to wine -- anything will do!  Just nothing too sweet!  I can't really do a Moscato or a Riesling.  I usually prefer a dry Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc, so mostly I drank the Dancing Bull Sauvignon Blanc.  Delish!

Alright you guys, let's count them....1,2,3,4,5,6,7......EIGHT total bottles of wine!!  And there wasn't a drop left when the party ended!  What can we say.....this group of girls likes their wine!! 

Did I have a fun time at my first Sip Happens Party?  Let's just say, I was the last to leave!  Which I always end up doing at parties somehow.  So needless to say, I had a pretty fabulous time!  I clearly remember early on in the night someone asking how long the party would last.  And Val answered until 1 or 2:00 in the morning, kind of jokingly.  We all laughed at the thought of staying up that late.  But I don't think I actually left until almost 12:30am!  I'm too old for that!  I guess when you get a group of ladies together and a whole lot of wine, there is just a lot to talk about!   I didn't want the night to end.  I think Kelly and I could have sat there and talked until the sun came up!  But we always tend to do that when we get together, and we ran out of wine! So.......there's that!  Overall, it was an amazing night getting to know these ladies one Sip Happens Party at a time!!

The next party is in June.  The theme is local wineries.  I can't wait!  Maybe we can get some free local wine out of this one!
