GNO with Amy

It was Girls Night Out tonight. Amy picked me up at 5:30 and we headed off to Don Pablos for some yummy Mexican food. We each got a Raspberry margarita and were surpised to see how BIG the glasses were. Wow! So much for having one small drink. (I am not a drinker and I dont think she does much drinking either)

We both had Enchildas....yum, yum, yum and then we shared a Chocolate Volcano for dessert. It was fabulous! We talked and talked and talked and had so much fun. We laughed and remembered old stuff. Talked about raising boys, divorces and everything else we could think of....and we watched a toddler at the next table "play" with his mommy's margarita glass. There was ice and a little bit of liquid at the bottom. And this child used a spoon and straw to stir and sip and play. I cannot fathom why they would let him do that? Am I being overprotective or weird?

Here is a picture of me and Amy (and our empty glasses). After dinner we went to Target and did a little shopping. Amy got a book and a new heating blanket. I got a few things for the boys (playdough, shirts and play mailboxes) and a box of goodies. We ended up getting home a few minutes before 10 and Hubby was half asleep on the couch. Now I cant wait to plan another night out with was great! Thank you Amy!!!

That looks so great! I have been having an enchilada obsession lately.

Good for you!!

Mama's batteries are recharged, at least for a little while :-)

Rhonda said...

What is it about us women and our Target obsessions? I too can be totally into girlfriend bonding with a trip to Target.

Time out is so needed for moms...good for you for having some time away for just YOU!

Deb said...

it sounds like a perfect evening!!! i'm a cheap date, too. that one huge margarita would have been PLENTY (in fact, you would probably have to push me in the cart at target).

mmmmm.... enchiladas!

glad you had a great time and everything was under control at home! you should make this a regularly scheduled date!

Autumn said...

sounds like you had a fun night!!

Mom said...

I am so happy for both of you. It looks like a great dinner and I am with Rhonda who doesn't love going to Target. I also agree with Deb that you need to make it a regular scheduled event.
