Planning a Wild Nite Out. . .

Tomorrow, I get to have a Girl's Nite Out!

Whoo hoo! Soooooo excited!

I really am lucky I have such an understanding husband. He watches the kiddos, feeds them, bathes them and puts them to bed while I yuk it up with the girls. I don't do it often, but sometimes you gotta let your hair down!

Before I had children, a night out meant dinner at a trendy bistro, followed by cocktails at a club, maybe dancing. Sometimes we would go chic, sometimes we would go casual. Depends.

I have LOTS of wild stories from the past. Lots.

Remember the party scene in Sixteen Candles where Long Duk Dong (played by Gedde Watanabe) opens the door wearing a toga? We had parties like that all the time. (You know the girl wearing Jake's Mom's fur and pearls, and the pearls broke and she cut her best friend's hair off? That was totally me and my friends.)(I am NOT exaggerating.)

These days though, I gotta admit, a nite with the girls looks a little different.

For one thing, I don't drink anymore.

For another, my new idea of a great evening out is going to a Baptist Church with all of my scrapbook supplies and working on my photo albums.

I'm not kidding. I am really going to do that.

And I can't wait.
