Do you ever have a girls’ night out? When you and other girls spend some girl-time together? It could involve dinners out, chick flicks, margaritas or chocolate martinis. But almost always, it involves lots of laughter. It can be sisters, girlfriends, family or a mix. However it plays out, there is just something about surrounding yourself with other girls, talking girl stuff, doing girl stuff, and celebrating our girl power that’s so rewarding.
Well, I recently set up a very special girl’s night out. My mother and stepfather came visit me in Texas from California. So I planned a night out. A whole night. We left hubby and stepfather at home and my daughter, my granddaughter, my mom and I took off for an excursion and adventure.
I made reservations at a nice Marriott. We were going to get pedicures, but mom had just had one, so we skipped that and went the shopping. We bought pajamas, panties, sweats, and a toy. After shopping we went to the movie and dined out. Leaving the movie we spotted one of those camera booths. And you know we had to do it.
First question. Could we all fit? Answer. No. Not really. But that didn’t stop us. We piled in. Put in our money and laughed so hard we cried. When we were finished there were actually people standing outside who said. “I think you girls are having too much fun.”
Then we went to our hotel and we laughed some more. We laughed about silly girl stuff. We ate chips in bed. And we stayed up watching television. The next morning we ate breakfast out and did some more shopping.
If there’s such a thing as too much fun we had it. And our memories included four generation of girls. If you haven’t had a girls’ night out, plan one. They are good for soul.
Do you have girls’ night out? What do you like to do?
