My girls night out last night

Oh my goodness, I had such a good time last night that my throat is a little hoarse this morning. Seriously! It was such a great time.

There were a few girls that couldn't make it, but there were easily still 15 of us altogether. The bar we went to actually had to put a table on top of a pool table to accommodate us (despite our event's organizer's attempts to make a reservation in advance to avoid such an inconvenience).

There were even prizes (I won a neat bath fizzie from Lush that smells divine and some lotion) for answering harmless trivia questions - mine was "What's your favorite thing to do in the summer?" And, well, given the fact that I am consistently 10 degrees warmer than everyone else, my answer was to stay where there's air conditioning. Pathetic, but true.

I got a chance to really chat with a few ladies that I've met a few times, and I really enjoyed it. I'm such a dork, but I like feeling like I'm making friends! I even managed to have a beer. Wow. I can't even remember the last time that happened. I need to get out more.

When I looked at my watch, though, and saw that it was after 10 o'clock, I couldn't believe it. Had I stayed home, I would have been passing out on the couch easily by about 9 o'clock. But here I was, out with the girls, having a good time, and still wide awake at 10. The funny thing was that I felt like I was out "late." This, coming from a girl who in her wilder days would stay out all hours, sleep for two hours, and then manage to go to work or go to class and actually function (nowadays? I'd be a total zombie).

So I know I tend to keep things a little bit anonymous, just because I don't want Baby to somehow read this in 13 years and be all embarrassed about his dear old mom, but I do want to toot the horn of my moms' group where I've met all these great ladies and who managed to get me out of the house last night: Mothers and More. If you don't know if there's a chapter near you, check. It's a really awesome organization. I'm so glad I found them, I feel like I've made some real friends there, and I know Baby has, too.

Glad you had such a good time. Sometimes we forget we are people too, huh? As for staying out late and all that, that was BC (before children) for me as well. Now AC, (after children)anything past 9pm is late and like you, I am usually passed out on the couch or face-first in whatever book I am reading. Oh, how the mighty have fallen, eh? LOL!!Girls nights out are a great way to reset ourselves that's for sure.

YAY! for having a night out and being "human" again. That's the part I miss, definitely not the "Bar scene" though.

What a wonderful night out! Its so nice to get out with no kids and no husband. I wish our local mom's group did more things like that. They mostly do crops and I don't scrapbook so that leaves me out.

Sounds like a wonderful time. It's so hard to put ourselves first on the list and do something fun! I'm with you on how now 10pm feels late. Remember back in the day when you could party three nights a week and be out past midnight each time? LOL

That's Awesome! I'm glad you had fun! I had the best mom's group with my daughter, she's 8, and we still do stuff together and have gone through a lot together! Stay in touch with them!

Hope you had a fun VGNO! I'm a little late getting around! The school carnival was fun for the kids if unorganized for the volunteers!

I'm signing up to follow if I'm not already! :)
