Well, last night was my turn for Girl’s Night. Our theme was “I’m Seeing Red!”

It was fun…I made tomato soup, sandwiches, tuna-noodle salad and red punch. Of course all this was served on red plates, red bowles, and red cups.ย  We also had red twizzlers and red-wrapped chocolate. Later for dessert, we had heart-shaped red velvet mini-cakes. I cut the tops off and spread icing in the middle. They were really good ๐Ÿ˜€

We played Valentines Day Pictionary, Truth or Dare, and “Guess how many candies are in the jar.” I gave a prize to the person who did the worst dare…the one who won ate a teaspoon of wheat flour.ย  Ewww…The worst thing I did was stick dog food up my nose. Yes, it was very childish. But we had a lot of fun. Everyone had to do at least one dare. And we took plenty of pictures…confidential to Girl’s Night, of course.

So another good night! Everyone left at midnight and I was happy I didn’t have to drive anywhere. One of the many perks of having it at my house!

Being the slacker that I am, I am finally looking people up on Facebook. I’ve been on there a while, but never have done much.

It’s been fun…I’ve recently gotten in touch with a girl I was really good friends with in 9th grade. (So I guess she’s not really a girl anymore…well, technically, but now a lot older.ย  Not that she’s OLD, just older than when I saw her last. And therefore not really a girl….I have a headache; excuse the thought process.)

I’ve been chatting with my niece who went off to college this last fall; she’s one of those really, really smart people that got a wicked scholarship into a smart school.

And of course, I’ve enjoyed throwing sheep and cows at various friends and flowers to others. I’m excited to see who else I’m going to find. Just in the last couple days, I’ve found 8 or 9 other people I knew “way back when.”

And I’ve even managed to figure out how to put pictures up, which is a huge thing. Yay me ๐Ÿ˜€

It’s been a lot of fun. If you’re thinking of people you used to know and are interested in finding again, check it out.

Last Friday night was another Girl’s Night. I love those. I come home so renewed, feeling so good.

This time it was at a friend’s house (we rotate). We brought white elephant gifts to exchange; I ended up with a kitchen angel another friend makes. One of the women brought a bunch of baking stuff she didn’t want anymore, so I got muffin/cake molds in holiday shapes…I know, it’s all domesticated-sounding, but they’re cute! We ate, played games, won stuff, chatted for hours. I left the house at 5:40pm and came home at 11pm!

Getting out of the house to hang with friends again is so nice. We talked about husbands, kids, problems, ghost stories, cars, etc. I’m definitely looking forward to next month’s night out already! The next month I host will be February, so I’m sure I can come up with some good stuff by then.

A couple weeks ago I invited a friend to come work out with me…I need motivation. And if I know someone is coming over, it’s motivation to push myself and give her a good workout. I get a sick kick out of making someone sore. ๐Ÿ˜€ย  Really, that’s when I know I did a good job and did it right…not trying to be mean or anything.ย  I’m not a personal trainer but I know what to do and how to do it well.

I told her this week I had been thinking about starting a workout group…a walking group on Tuesday and Thursday and a body sculpt/weight train group on Fridays. She thought that was a great idea, especially since she was thinking along the same lines. She also volunteered her house for Fridays since it’s rather big, and we can exercise there on the walking days if it’s cold or rainy.

So YAY!!! I made fliers and we’re starting up next week! The area where we’ll be walking is hilly, so it should be fun pushing 2 kids in a stroller uphill. Extra calorie burn! Wa-hoo!!
