So, all of you girls out there and Moms and stay-at-home-Moms know what I am talking about when I say how wonderful a night out with the girls can be. It is like a little therapy session and a rejuvenating for your soul!!
I was fortunate to have a night out with my best girl friends last night. I have a great group of girl friends. There are 5 of us total. We are all Mommies to children ranging from ages 5 years -6 weeks. We really have a lot in common. We have been friends for a while now and we cherish the times we get to see each other with kids and also without!!
So what is so special about a Girls Night Out you might ask?! Or like Matt, you might say "What did you talk about all night!?" OK - here are a few things I think the 5 of us would agree are reasons why a night out with the girls is much needed and enjoyable!
~ We get to get dressed and ready to go somewhere special. Even if it is just to a casual restaurant or to someones house it is so much different than the park, a play date, or errands. We get to make ourselves feel pretty for once!! :)
~ Traveling without a diaper bag or tons of stuff in tow. No extra sippy cups, toys, crayons for coloring at the restaurant...you get the idea.
~ We get to enjoy a meal in PEACE!! No having to cut up food before eating our own. No whining toddler chanting "get down? get down?". No mess to clean up afterwards! Just ourselves to worry about!
~ We have wonderful conversation and catch up on what we have all been up to. What do we talk about - well, just about everything. Family, kids, friends, vacations, decorating, babies, having more babies, kids activities, kids going to school, potty training...I could go on and on!
~ Just some time away from everyday life! (No offense Husbands - we love you dearly - you know what we mean!!)
~On occasion we get to act silly and maybe just harmlessly flirt a little with the cute foreign waiter at The Cheesecake Factory. :) HA HA!
Last night was a fun night out although our one dear friend was unable to make it. Guess we will be having to plan another night out soon?? We even got to venture to TWO different restaurants last night because the power went off in the first and we REALLY needed dessert!!
Here is the 4 of us at restaurant #1
And our second stop at The Cheesecake Factory. We had a really nice waiter here that was very eloquently describing the flavor of a particular raspberry cheesecake....we all liked him a lot! :)
S0, there is nothing quite like a Girls Night Out and most importantly - nothing like friends like you girls!! I had a great night last night. You girls are the best!! Can't wait until next time.
