What is it about Girls’ Night that makes me feel so much better?

women dancingA few girlfriends and I had a Girls’ Night on Tuesday with my friends and I didn’t get home til 11 pm. On a weeknight!

And I had such a good time.

As most of you know, I’m an old lady when it comes to staying out past 10. I left a concert at 10:30 because I was ready to pass out…

I was pretty stressed this past week. I’ve been nonstop busy at work, I have a 15-page paper due for my class, and I’ve had no desire to do anything really.

So when someone suggested Girls Night, a part of me just felt like it was one more thing I had to do.

However, I forced myself to go. And I’m so glad I did.

What is it about talking to other women about nothing and everything in general that is so stress-relieving???

We seriously talked so much and the conversation just kept going. Most importantly, when we started talking about our lives and personal experiences, I realized how normal I am–something that I don’t feel very often. For example, I realized:

  • My husband is not the only husband that can’t seem to keep his clothes off the floor or is unable to put away clean clothes.
  • I am not the only wife that has had to financially support her husband while he built his career. In fact, out of the five wives there, four of us are still the primary breadwinners even after several years of marriage.
  • All families have some sort of drama.
  • Wine and chocolate can solve almost anything.

The best part too about Girls’ Night is that usually when I get home after a few hours of nonstop talk with my friends, I’m in such a better mood.

Are you a fan of Girls’ Night?

I love a girls night out, but I think in our older age we settle nicely with a girl’s potluck dinner. ha ha! I think girls can be a great support system for one another…when we’re not being catty. 🙂

Love girls night. I always have the best time and we always say we need to do it more often. It’s a kind of outlet that you can’t get hanging out with your husband. A much needed one! Glad you went and had fun.

I LOVE girls’ night. My friends and I are having girls’ night tonight. I am feeling really stressed about some projects I have on my plate right now…but like you, I’m gonna go anyway. I know it’ll help me feel awesome. I think I just have to think of better ways to manage everything.

I love girls’ night out. I haven’t had one with wine getting involved in awhile since most of my friends are pregnant.

I’m the same way. I’m usually reluctant to go out but once I do I have a great time!
