This past Friday night I met a few of my girlfriends at a local Applebee’s for cocktails that also turned into dinner and dessert. It’s really rare that I go out anymore especially in the winter; it’s not that I am anti-social by any means..it’s just the season of my life right now I am really focused. The truth is I miss going out..I love going bowling, movies, dinner, cocktails etc, so I have vowed to myself to make time for socialization.

I need it.

And possibly date..

After dinner Charnaye, Jess and I got their Bahama Mamas cocktails, they were fantastic…except they needed to be drank by a poolside instead at a bar. The food was not the best, but the cocktails and dessert were the best part.

But nonetheless fun.

I have to admit it felt pretty amazing to just sit around and talk for a couple of hours…and to get out of the house. I love being a mom, I really do…but I miss having a social life. Most parents can agree; it’s so nice to be able to get out of the house not worrying about having to make sure your children are going to be entertained, G rated conversations, wearing your toddlers food as part of your wardrobe…it’s such a comfort knowing that you can take your time and enjoy yourself.

I am not much of a partier, I’ve had my fair share when I was younger, it probably explains my extreme hate towards Vodka. Anything that has Vodka in it I don’t drink, thankfully the Bahama Mamas didn’t have an ounce of Vodka…just Rum. If it did I would have resorted to my usual…Yuengling on tap. I am definitely more of a Beer drinker than any fruity…pretty..drink, because Vokda is literally in every…single…one…of…them.

I can go on and on about my hatred toward Vodka, but the night was awesome we all sat around and talked for a few hours laughing at the crazy things that happen in our lives.

Last Friday was greatly needed and I am looking forward to doing it again.
