Girls Night Out!

I get a night out with four of my favorite peeps tomorrow. We decided a few years ago to create an excuse to get together four or five times a year. Now-a-days we have at least as many kid parties between us, but this is our time, just for us girls.

So the Feisty Nuns' book club was born. (And we were without a name until just now.)

A boy from our high school once commented (with a note of disgust) that the girls in my circle acted like "nuns." I'm sure he was just frustrated by hormones and spurned advances. We are all, in fact, nice girls...but, c'mon, "nuns" was a taking it a bit far. I thought that was a funny thing to say, and playing along, I dressed up as a nun that year for Halloween (the habit, the collar and all.) Was that weird of me?

Well, look at my circle, now. And may I say that for a few pious women who get together to discuss books, we manage to have a little fun, too.

We were suppose to discuss Love in the Time of Cholera, but because Queen Bee (Girly Stuff) didn't like the book, we got "told" we would see Twilight instead. I'm really only in this thing for the get-togethers, so I won't be too upset if we drop the books and just become club.

Well, I seem to have broken the first rule of book club...

I'll report back if I think this movie is a must-see.

MMA has already punched in his two cents...according to him all vampire movies are gay allegories and to be avoided at all cost.

By, the way, we took Only Child to see Madagascar 2 over the weekend and we all LOVED IT!

I had Vet's day off and took 4 year old to see Mad 2. It's the first time I took him to the theatre by myself, and it was so much fun. :) Great movie too.

Check out my blog....we have NUNthing in common! LOL (sorry, I'm a sucker for puns) Have a great time with the ladies!

Sounds like my kind of book club ;)
I hope the movie was great, my daughter wants to read the book. Now Madegascar is a must see for our family as well.

Vampire stories are gay allegories?

Interesting. Never thought of it that way...

Girly Stuff said...

So who is MMA more afraid of, vampires or gay men?

We weren't nuns...we were the "untouchables." We were bad-asses. Our tastes were beyond the scope of what SoHo had to offer.

Oh wait...I met my husband at SoHo.

I am having a girls night out with my two dear friends! I have looked forward to it all weekend! I don't care what we do, as long as I don't have to make the decisions or order anybody else's dinner!
