“Oh, you mean like a sleep-over?” “Yeah.” “Well, OK….but I get to be on top.”

I love it when a crazy conversation becomes a crazy idea and results in a really great time. What started as a twitter conversation amongst some San Diego area tweeters about how we were all sitting around in our pj’s while visiting on Twitter became some crazy talk of a real-live, grown up, sleep over. Then the lovely and talented Charity (@virtueIMC) took off running with the crazy idea and #JammyJam was born.

Hosted at the wonderful Porto Vista Hotel downtown, a whole bunch of ladies (no men or children allowed) were able to gather and spend a fun night out. Thanks to the lovely young ladies from Timeless Salon and Day Spa (especially Yesica who did a phenomenal job on my make up) and generous make-up donations from E.L.F. (we each received our own brush set to keep!) we were all able to get our hair and make up done. Make overs are a requirement of any successful sleep-over. Stills By Hill was there to hand AND give discounted photography packages. Passion Parties had their own room filled with goodies. Angie from Meltology was on hand (ha ha) giving hand treatments. Those heated glove treatments did wonders for my arthritis (amazing stuff,  wanna have home ‘spa’ party, with chocolate? feel free to contact her at jelkus@aol.com).

After arriving, we all put on our pajama’s, started visiting and getting to know each other. We hung out in the great room; watching movies (Dirty Dancing, Pretty In Pink, Sex In The City), painting nails, getting make overs, gossiping, and (I know you weren’t expecting this) imbibing of some beverages. The view out the glass wall from the great room of the city and the harbor were spectacular. The new friends I made: even better. A few of us (not naming names) partied on until 4am, before retiring to our very lovely suites.  The next morning we had a continental breakfast and interesting conversations about why we blog and marketing our blogs. This was seriously the best time I have had in years!

A big shout out to all the beautiful girls I got to spend time with : @virtueIMC, @stillsbyhill @sandiegoMomma @drsha @muffintinmom @picklesugarplum @jenboydsd @sanctuarymsg & @militaryfamof8. I can hardly wait for our next #JammyJam adventure this summer. Keep your eyes peeled and join us. Just look how much fun we had:
