I said I wanted to tell you about my Birthday weekend so here goes! Saturday the 8th, I planned a girls night out for my b-day. I sent an e-vite that said "A hip new Game Show is looking for adventurous contestants in the Northwest Arkansas area. Have you got what it takes to conquer the competition? This is your chance to make it big! Wow us with your game show prowess, and join the host for dinner afterward to celebrate your success." That is all the girls knew about the night except to meet at Jason's work at 6:00p.m.!
On Friday my sweet dear cousin drove from Tennessee to spend the weekend with me. He got here around 11:00 p.m. He knew what I had planned and he wanted to help out! Well, on Saturday morning Jason and I got up at 5:45 to go run a 5K race at the Pea Ridge Battle Field. IT WAS COLD and the run was hard but we did it! Bryan stayed home with the kids and when we got home we got ourselves and the kids ready and went to a Jason's company party at Fastlanes. We ate and played games and had a lot of fun with the kids. We got home around 1ish and put the kids to bed for a nap. From that point on we were working on the final details to my girls night out b-day party. Well 6:00p.m came and this is how it played out:Jason greeted the ladies at the door and they had to sign in. They sat in the lobby and we did some small talk. Once everyone arrived my cousin took them into the "green room" (cafeteria) and put them into two teams. He explained that he was the Production Manager and that we were going to play "Friendly Fued" each team had to come up with a name and make a sign. He explained the rules of the game and then it was show time.Prior to this night I had made up a bunch of questions and surveyed about 50 people and tallied the answers. I asked Jason if we could use his theater room at his work b/c it felt like a studio. I borrowed a camcorder so that we could film it. Jason put all the data on the computer so we could project the answers onto a big screen in the theater. He also got the theme song to play and some sound effects from the show. I had also went around to buisness to see if they would donate items for my goodie bags that I had for each lady. The goodies bags turned out pretty good.
The night turned out great! The game was fun and afterwards I opened gifts then we went out to eat. It wasn't the normal b-day party and I loved it. I am going to make a copy of the video and send it to each lady as a little momento!
