Ladies Night Out = Lights Out

Thursday was our second Ladies' Night Out. Erin hosts it at her home on the 2nd Thursday of the month. I really enjoy it. I love to sit back and listen to every one talk. Occasionally I can be quiet and listen!!! Every lady there is a mom and they are all stay at home moms. So I'm the odd ball out both ways. But it is fascinating to me to listen to each of them discuss their questions and concerns. I learn a lot from them!!

I had the sweet pleasure of riding over to Erin's with a new friend, Amber. We attend the same church but I "met" her for the first time at the last LNO. She lives relatively close to me. I didn't realize it until we got to Erin's that it was Amber's birthday!!! Brooklyn had made a cake.We had some stormy weather during LNO and lost electricity. That did not stop us though!! We continued to talk in the dark using a candle light and flash light. It was fun. It felt almost like a girls slumber party. All of these pictures where taken without electricity but my flash lit up the room!! Which was kind of funny in itself. When I clicked the camera the flash blinded everyone!!!

Look closely and you can see the flash light!! Erin lives in a somewhat rural subdivision so there was no outside light/reflections. It was dark!!Kara was telling a story and I had no idea what she looked like or how her arms where when I took this because it was so dark. It's as if she is telling a ghost story!!! Hilarious!!!!

Erin, Candi, Vicki, Jennifer

We are driving to Ada tonight after work and coming home . Bryan has to set up his deer stands for this Fall. I'm looking forward to relaxing and reading!!

Have a great weekend!!!

I'm glad you had a good time with your friends! I personally think that we as women should still have slumber parties. They are fun! Have a great weekend. You'll have to let me know what you read. I read When Crickets Cry, so now I need another recommendation!

Oh I love ladies doing life together and all that it looks like. It looks like you have a very fun group ~~ even in the dark :)

I love to read and am on book #5 of my summer reading (although it doesn't have to be summer for me to read :) I look forward to hearing what you're reading.

Have a GREAT weekend,

We had a pretty bad storm last night also. We lost electricity here and there, but never for very long. Cute birthday cake! Sounds like you ladies had a wonderful time!

Oh I love girls nights! That Brooklyn is great with the cakes. I LOVE the last cake she did for the baby shower. It looks like a bakery made it!

I hope you have a relaxing weekend! You need it girl!

I'm glad that you had such a good time with friends. God is giving you an opportunity to listen and learn from other moms so that you will be even more prepared when you are a mom yourself.

I hope you have a wonderful relaxing weekend!

Sounds like you are the fortunate wife of a deer hunter, too! Ugh!! I dread hunting season every year!

Glad you had fun with your girlfriends!
