Ladies Night

“Oh yes it’s ladies night and the feeling’s right. Oh yes it’s ladies night, oh what a night” ~~ Kool & the Gang


IMG_1509Ladies night has been part of my sanity for years.  I don’t know what I would do without my girls.  Who else can you call at the last minute? Who has your back with no questions asked?

So  a few years ago, my friends and I decided we would see Fifty Shades of Grey when it was relased.  We’d all read the book.  Yeah, it was a bit on the raunchy side….opened our minds to a few things.  What better way to spend a night then with your best friends and Christian Grey? An epic girls night was upon us and on Valentine’s weekend no less.  So what do you do?  Uhh….you hang out with the girls on the  13th and you spend time with your love on the 14th.  Done.  We decided….dinner, drinks, popcorn and bdsm.  Can’t wait.

Whether you’re single, in a relationship, a parent…you have to prepare for these things. Two weeks before: confirm that everyone is still on board.  Double check with significant others, make babysitting arrangements, plan dinner for the kids.  Whatever you have to do…get it done.  I mean, we’d been waiting for this for over a year.  I ordered the tickets and picked them up in advance because I wanted to enjoy the night without having to wait in a million lines.

Bring on the happy hour! It was the longest week ever for me.  A minor outpatient procedure on Monday. Didn’t recover as quickly as I wanted.  Completely sidelined for four days.  All I knew was, come hell or high water, I was going out on Friday night.  We meet up to unwind and relax.  There are six of us in total: a Shirley Temple for the non drinker, vodka cranberry, beer (Stella), pina colada & whiskey/diet coke & lime start us off.  Appetizers, dinner, tons of drinks and laughter.  Nothing can beat sitting down, laughing out loud, and talking about nothing with your girlfriends.

The line to get into the theater was long as hell.  I’d never seen so many women in one place.  And it wasn’t even a male review!  They were drunk and excited.  No one was pushy or rude.  Everyone was having a good time.  There wasn’t a man in sight.  We couldn’t help but wonder if all the men would be forced to go on Valentine’s Day.  How was the movie? Better than I expected.  The company?  The best I could’ve asked for.

IMG_2508I’m a single girl who’s looking for something.  I want to be able to laugh all the time.  I want to be able to say anything without worrying about offending someone.  I want, love, support, friendship…I want it all.  But for right now, I’m glad I have a group of friends that are truly the best of me.  We “compliment each other”.   Our frienships range from 20 years to a little over a year.  They’ve supported me through pregnancies, separation, divorce, job transfers, kid issues, boyfriends, heartbreaks, laughter…you name it.  We listen to each other and never pass judgement.  Walk a mile in my stilettos, and only then can you judge me.

If you have friends that would do anything for you and you for them, let them know.  Hang out, laugh, drink, talk shit.  Enjoy life and celebrate the milestones.  I’m lucky to have a few…are you?

xoxo ~ D

    First off I would like to say great blog! I had
    a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself
    and clear your head prior to writing. I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just
    trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or
    tips? Cheers!

      Thx!! I’m actually writing all the time. I jot notes down during the day in a notebook or on my phone. Music is the blueprint to all of my memories!! I always have my iPod on or I’m singing. It helps me relax before I start putting everything together. Best of luck to you!!!

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any
    problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web
    without my permission. Do you know any solutions to help protect against content from being stolen? I’d genuinely appreciate

    I’ve been browsing on-line more than three hours lately,
    yet I never found any interesting article like
    yours. It’s beautiful worth sufficient for me.
    In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the internet will likely be much
    more helpful than ever before.
