Girls Night - Girls ONLY!!!

As I get older I notice I become more and more busy..

I have a boyfriend to take care of, work to do, papers to grade, meals to cook, dishes in the sink, laundry to wash, bathroom to clean, bed to make (please - someone stop me)

So as I was saying - as we get older we get busy and tend to forget the important things in life - we forget to make time for the important things in life.

I have 3 very special friends, and like me they have a TON going on.

Danielle - married - just had her 1st baby - a beautiful girl named Eliza, sometimes we refer to her as the "peanut." And she is also a fellow kindergarten teacher. And there is Heather - married - she is busy with work, her side buisness, her niece & brand new nephew, and she is busy with anything having to do with a baby! And then there is Erika - engaged - she is busy planning her wedding and working hard in 2 different schools!

We all seem to get stuck in our routines - which is normal (especially since we are such busy people).

Tonight, Heather's husband had a 30th BDay party at a Strip Club and it was a boys ONLY party.. So we decided to have a girls ONLY party @ my house.. (minus Danielle because the "peanut" is sick and in the hospital!! (We really missed you tonight Dan, hope Eliza is feeling better)

We had so much fun talking, laughing, eating, drinking, and reminiscing about college times! Just us girls!!

I know that I am guilty of hanging out with my boyfriend on weekends and not going out of my way to make more "girl" time, which I think is extremely important.. If it was New Year's I'd make a resolution to take time out of my crazy, hectic schedule to hang out with just the girls. I wouldn't let so much time go by before the 4 of us get together for a girls night...

So I dedicate this to my girls!! I love you all very much - I think of each one of you every day and you are always in my heart!!

To EJ, Dan, & Heather:
You're...My Friend,my companion,through good times and bad
my friend, my buddy,through happy and sad,
beside me you stand,beside me you walk,
you're there to listen,you're there to talk,
with happiness, with smiles,with pain and tears,
I know you'll be there,throughout the years!

Thanks for a great night.. We'll do a make-up soon Dan!!!
Looking forward to seeing everyone at our lunch date in April!

Aww. Girls nights are the best, even though a lot of us don't have time/make the time for them. I'm happy to hear yours went well and that you have such amazing friends!

Aww that was so sweet :)

It was so much fun doing a girls night! We should definitely make plans to do this way more often. It is so weird how we used to see each other every day and now I am lucky to see one of you guys in a month. I definitely can't blame my being busy all the time on cleaning or cooking LOL! I can't believe we are all so busy all the time - but even if we have to make plans to get together 8 weeks in advance we still need to do it :)

What an awesome post!!! I actually got teary eyed reading it!! It's great to have good girl friends that you can vent to, share good news with, cry with, and just have fun with. I consider myself so lucky to have great friends!

Dana & Heather - I had an absolutely amazing time last night. It was so much fun chatting & spending quality time together. It was nice to take a break from the wedding planning, work, and the everyday rat race....and just have quality girly time! Thanks for a great night but most of all thanks for being a great friends! Love you!

How great that you were able to have a fun girls night out. I have no idea when the last time was that I did something like that.
