Girls night

So last night was the "girls night". It ended up being really fun. As we were sitting around the table at On the Border (hyperlinked for those of my family and friends who have never heard of the best Mexican place around-be careful! It has music!), I realized that we were having our own little BlogHer (hyperlinked because I am not sure how I even know what that is so I doubt anyone else will-basically a bunch of women bloggers). I thought this was pretty funny. It all started with Missy, then Kelli wanted to begin writing again, and then one night at work Sarah and I thought, "Why not!". I think we all have a lot of fun writing and updating about our lives.

Anywho, we had a good time yakking it up and we didn't even really talk about the kids! So, we missed the movie, but it was fun to walk around the mall. I will speak for myself when I say it was fun to walk around the mall without having to say "don't touch that" or "come back here" or "no you can't have that ridiculously expensive toy"! Much nicer to look at a dress for Natalie and decide if I want to buy it by myself with out this little munchkin next to me saying how pretty it is a NEW DRESS! Much less guilt when I put it back because I am not buying a dress for $20 no matter HOW cute it is.

P.S. thought I would keep it interesting with all those hyperlinks!

Can you believe I've actuallly heard of BlogHer? But only because The Pioneer Woman (thepioneerwoman.com) was there and blogged about it. I love TPW, you all should visit her site sometime, and her cooking site, too!

All in all a really fun time!

The food at 'On the border' looks good. Too bad the nearest one is in Boise Idaho. Glad you had a great time. It's nice to escape once in a while without the kids.

Good for you Shannon. I think both husband and wife should have equal time off. The guys always have boys night out so why not the girls although in my day there was never girls night out!

Girls Night out was way fun...hopefully it becomes a tradition :)
And Missy...I started reading Pioneer Woman...and its great! Thanks!

I've heard of BlogHer, too, but only because of that other blog that shall remain nameless. On the Border is my favorite ever. Boo to those people who don't like chains. It was a lot of fun, and we should definitely do it again. So we missed the movie, but we shopped, and Missy and I discovered that our husbands are emotional twins.

I'm glad you like Pioneer Woman, Sarah! I need to link her on my blog but I always forget. I recently discovered that my boss' wife is completely obsessed with her. I just think she's fun! What do we say to once a month girls night out? (Time and husbands allowing?) :)

SarahK said...

definitely!

Kelli said...

I'm in. I'll try not to have a "complete mental breakdown" next time. (Ha ha!)
