All moms deserve a Mom's Night Out! Whether it is out with your husband, a group of friends, your sisters or just one of your close friends....we deserve it! I am fortunate to have a very supportive husband who comes home early to let me go out about 3 times a month! I have my once a month outing with my best friend, my book club and I split the other outing between meeting up with old friends or attending my local MOMs club Mom's Night Out.
Last night out I went out with my best friend L. She and I have been BF's for over 12 years! We met the second week of our freshman year watching Friends (of all shows) in the dormitory lounge. Since then we have had our share of highs and lows and she truly is my third sister! Since our lives were just getting too crazy busy, we decided to carve out this once a month meet-up so that we can sit back, relax and catch up. It was so nice to have L all to myself last night with no kids or husbands around. We talked, laughed and I was so sad when it was time to say good-bye. Thanks L :)
So Ladies....it is time to get out and have some much deserved ME time. Between the kids, housework, husbands and work (if you are a working mom) you deserve a break! Call up an old friend, find your local MOMs club or get your friends together for a fun night. You do not have to go OUT and spend money to have a great Mom's Night Out either. Some of my favorite MNO's have been at someones house where you can relax and take your shoes off :) So get your girlfriends together for a game night, start a book club, or get together and watch TV! Just make sure you take the time to keep up the connections and friendships that you have made during your life. MNO's will help to keep you sane and happy and for this your husband and kids will be happy :)
