girl's night out

I don't know about all of you, but life gets hectic around here. My hubs has been home from his deployment for 6 months now and it's funny that many of the transitions we expected to occur months ago have just settled in. Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining. There are just transitions to be had when you live apart for almost 2 years. And have I mentioned that we have a 2 1/2 year old? And that said 2 year old just so happens to already understand the concept of the loophole? Like today, I reminded her not to take drinks into her room. She set it just outside of her bedroom door on the tile. She looked at me and said, "Not in my room." True, true sister. And have I ever mentioned that we live on the surface of the sun?? Nothing brings out cranky mom better than some 154 degree temperatures. So, I share all of these things to say that sometimes I need to get out with the girls, without our kids and just laugh our faces off.

We did just that last week. The Racer, the bff and I all went out for dinner and shared some scrumptious fajitas, ate huge servings of ice cream and window shopped for jewelry. After all this fun, we met up with another friend and played Singstar on their game system. If you have never seen some 30-somethings bust out with some dance moves and some rockin' duets, you have missed out on some big laughs (at our expense). We laughed until we cried. The bff even shot Diet Coke out of her nose. I believe that these times away help us to be better moms, wives and just better women in general.

So, to my girls: Thanks for helping me blow off steam, keeping me sane, living life with me and loving me right where I am at. You guys rock!
