Mom's Night Out!

Yay! The night has finally come! Tonight is Mom's Night Out. It's not really "out" for me because I'm hosting it. But, that's even better because I can get my drink on and don't have to worry about getting home.

See all of my recent posts have been of the "fairytales" theme. Well, now it's time for the "margaritas"!

I definitely cherish my Mom's Night Outs. They just don't happen often enough. Our last one was in December! And what a time we had! We stayed out until all hours of the night (meaning 11:00) and closed the bar down. Ok, it was a restaurant with a bar. But, we made lots of friends and sang loud songs and did some questionable shots. We even had some 50 year old men buy us a round! Good times!

I think it's really important for Mom's to continue to be women even after they have children. Yes, my children are 98% of my life, but I still need to be ME sometimes. And ME is a wild and crazy girl who likes fruity drinks and likes to dance and laugh and play games. Yes, games. My favorite being
Cranium. Quite possibly the best game ever!

My friend Corrina (pronounced Kor- IN- a) teases me about this. Every time I have people over I have the Cranium box out and ready. I vow that, "This time you guys are definitely playing." But, we have yet to play. Usually we get yapping and laughing and drinking and time gets away from us. They have no idea the fun they are missing!

So, I vow, TONIGHT IS THE NIGHT! Prepare yourself ladies, because Cranium is in the house!

I wish I had gone!

I hope you had a blast Lori!!!

I adore board games, but Tony will only humor me every once in awhile. :(

I try to do a girl's night out as often as I can, but that usually turns into once every other month at best. Maybe when Ali is a little older!

Hope you had a ton of fun!

So how did it go? Come on, details!

Lori- Fairytales & Margaritas said...

It was fun. I ended up having a great turnout. But, we didn't play Cranium. We drank too fast and ended up making human pyramids and other equally silly things!

Ingrid said...

LOL. Sounds like it was a lot of fun. How awesome about the turnout; I know that you were concerned about that.

Emily said...

I frigging LOVE Cranium!!!!!

Angela said...

Lori, sounds like a lot of fun. I hope I can make the next one!
