Girls Night

Last night, for the first time in I don't know how long, all of the girls got together for dinner. 8 of us. This never happens, we're lucky to get 3 of us in the same room, at the same time unless it involves a wedding. Sad but true.
It was awesome to see everyone. We all went to HS together, except my cousin, but she was with me so much she became on honorary member of the group.
We had dinner and yummy drinks, we chatted and just got a chance to catch up. It was really really nice. It reminded me that I'm really lucky to have such awesome friends. Friends that I talk to everyday and friends that I may only talk to a few times a month. Regardless, they are some of the greatest women I have ever met and I love them.
And sadly, we didn't take a single picture!

Last night also gave me a chance to just be me for awhile. I wasn't a wife or a mom, I ordered what I wanted, I drank what I wanted...I headed out to Karol's Christmas party since I had 2 hours to kill and then headed to a late movie. I didn't get home until almost 1am, went to bed around 2 and stayed in my nice warm bed, that I didn't have to share, until 10:30am. (Jared was "camping" with Aiden and my mom had Ian...a story for another blog) It was fabulous and so much fun! It reminded me of my pre-baby days when I could pick up and do something without having to think about it or worry about who would be getting up with the kids in the morning or if I could afford the $8.25 for the movie. And yes, I loved every minute of it...but I'm happy to be home tonight with all of my boys. I wouldn't trade them for the world, it's just nice to be free of them once in awhile.
