A friend of mine recently hit a milestone birthday. We decided that the group of us friends should go out to celebrate her birthday. She informed us that it wasn't for her birthday and it should be for all of our birthdays. So it affectionately became called NRB (not (her first name)'s birthday). So we emailed all the gals and found a date and time that worked for everyone and that was last night.
So last night we went to a somewhat local Mexican restaurant and enjoyed our food and visiting. Then we decided to have a little dessert (we shared fried ice cream). We had been lingering at our table and didn't realize the large amount of people waiting to be seated, so we quickly left our table and decided to continue our evening elsewhere. We spent probably another hour there, discussing a myriad of things (even I was amazed at the variety of things we discussed) and arrived home in time for the 10:00 news.
We need to do this more often. It was so nice to just visit and laugh and not be in the middle of doing something while we were visiting. We decided that we need to bring our husbands next time too and go a fancier restaurant. That was they can't wiggle out of going (and it would be nice to do this again). We never make time and we are all busy raising kids from preschool to college, doing our jobs, running businesses and get caught up in the daily busyness.
Thanks gals and you know who you are. Yes I have pictures and no I won't post them anywhere.
