What’s YOUR ideal girls night out? We wanna know!!
Hey girl’frannnnd! Did you know that Sept. 21st is National Women’s Friendship Day? You totally need to use this weekend to get together with your girlfriends and enjoy a night out, or a night in…whichever you prefer! Dinner and a movie sounds perfect, but so does piling up on the couch with the bestie, a bottle of wine, some cupcakes and several episodes of Downton Abbey!!
Okay, so who and what is this Moms Check In?! Three other moms and myself get together every Friday to discuss a new mom/kiddo related topic and we invite YOU to chat with us, right here on our blogs OR through social media using the hashtag #MomsCheckIn. We discuss everything from dirty diapers to date night! But never those 2 at the same time…yuck!
We love to talk with other moms and we encourage you to chime in! Moms love to talk, right?! If you’re a mom and a blogger, we’d love to have you co-host a weekly topic with us! Just fill out this form!
Okay, now here’s what our moms have to say about this week’s topic!!
My how times have changed. I really would have answered this so differently 15 years ago! Now my ideal girls’ day out would be coffee and breakfast in a cute little coffee shop, followed by some sort of spa day. We need manicures and pedicures in there too. They don’t happen nearly often enough. After that, some shopping and an early evening chick flick at the theater would be fantastic! Now who wants to go with me?
My ideal GNO/GNI revolves around great food and great conversation, not necessarily in that order! It doesn’t happen often enough. Now that Sam is a little older I feel like I can take more “me” time so it’s bumped up on my priority list.

My ideal girls night out would consist of a good chick flick, dinner at my fave spot – Texas Roadhouse, and maybe even an adult drink or two. I NEVER get those, darn it!! I’m pretty easy to please. A fun night IN with the girls would probably be spent watching a movie, some bad for us snacks and drinks and a DIY mani/pedi!

Girls Night is a necessity! I am in a small group through our church called Girls Night Out (great name right?) and we meet every week. I look forward to it!! We meet for a couple hours and talk, hang out, eat dinner, sometimes do a Pinterest inspired project. I try to meet my best friend for lunch or manicures at least once a month. Sometimes we go longer. But we talk everyday! I think we need to make some time for our friends not only for them, but for ourselves too!
