here and here. Talk about sparkle. This place sits on almost 12,000 square feet of land, has 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, game room, huge gourmet kitchen, lots of fireplaces, outdoor grill, saltwater pool and hot tub, and plenty of space.
My sister thought about what her girlfriends would enjoy most, and concluded that having some scheduled downtime would be relished by all. Boy, was she right! So, the plan for the weekend was to relax and have fun, and that is just what we did!
We ate, swam in the pool, soaked in the hot tub, soaked in the sun, cooked, laughed, slept, and enjoyed all of the sparkle that this amazing house, and incredible group of girls had to offer.
Bixby soaked up the rays too.
Some other sights from around this dream house...

The bathroom in the upstairs master suite is probably the most stunning bathroom I have ever seen.
Shower in upstairs master suite. It has 6 jets, a rain shower head, and a regular shower head, a handheld shower head, and a bench. Every person used this shower at least once over the weekend.
It was AMAZING!

And a little butterfly visitor crossed my path...
here. We layered it over a brown-ish base coat. LOVE LOVE LOVE. I think at least 3 other girls used it too.
However, I couldn't help but share this one picture of my sister showing off her awesome fanny-pack boom box... She wrote about it on her ruffle love blog here. Yes, a fanny-pack boom box. Yes, indeed.
Here is one last picture of my Sis opening her presents and showing off her "keep" and "toss" garters hand-made by me especially for her.
I can't wait to see what her wedding has in store! I'm sure it will be one of the most sparkle-filled events ever!
Until next time, take some time to relax and enjoy life - I bet you'll find a lot of sparkle in that! I know I do!
