Girl's Night Out

We had a Girl's Night Out this week. We're trying to make it a monthly tradition. I love it! It is so nice to talk to my friends without worrying about what mischief our kids are making while we visit. (Thanks to our wonderful husbands who make this possible and are resolving and/or preventing the mischief!)

Jayne, Shelly, and Me
(Look, Barb--I got to wear my BIG beach earrings!)

Bea, Martha, Jenny, and Diane

It was one of those nights where I'm sure the waiters and bus boys were annoyed with us because we stayed SOOO long, but we just didn't want it to end. We stayed for over 3 hours this time. Poor Jenny works on the morning news and has to leave the house by 5 am. She must've been exhausted.

Throughout my life I've heard comments about how women NEED to have girlfriends. I've never really understood. I had a couple really close girlfriends growing up, but I hung out with guys most of the time. That can be a little weird after you get married, although Andrew doesn't have a jealous bone in his body. (Thanks, honey!) Now I finally get it, though. It is great to have women to share life experiences with. Especially when you live on the other side of the country from all of your family members. I feel so blessed to have developed these friendships over the last couple of years.

Oh, I'm jealous! That looks like so much fun! I get scrapbook night once a month, but half of those I have to teach the its not really "girls night out". But, its kid-less, so I guess that's something:) What a great tradition!

It was a GREAT evening.

Thanks for capturing it so well on your blog.

Lots of news to catch up on. I'm a little jealous too. I've had to be home by 7:45 pm this year to nurse my baby and put him to sleep. I've missed girls night the last 8 months. Hopefully in a few months that will change. I'm glad you're enjoying it for me in the meantime!

I hope the surgery goes well. We have another fellow blogger whose young daughter is getting another eye surgery done = hers on Nov 15. I'll have to ask her what condition it's for, but I know she's also had other surgeries.

I'm guessing your hand is the one holding the water? :-)

I posted a comment recently, but it isn't showing up, so just want you to know how much I love reading these blogs and thanks for the update on Whitney's surgery November 17.

Love you -
