Getting together with my gal pals always starts off with classy intentions.
Sometimes, we start at a local Nashville winery where the owner is out and about rubbing elbows with visitors. And being that this winery dude used to be in one of country music’s biggest duos, Brooks and Dunn we have no shame in asking for a photo, naturally.
Typically on a ladies night, we begin with good intentions all dolled up with our lipstick still in tact.
Then after about a cocktail and a half, photo shoots commence while our love for one another gushes throughout conversations.
Once love is professed, it’s time for shots.
And then hell starts to break loose…like taking pictures of our party in the back of a mini van.
We feel free to ditch the shoes and any ounce of dignity as our killer heels hurt our feet.
Our magical powers of prowess surface as we will our significant others to call us.
We find other uses for feminine products while on cocktail number five.
The fun on girls night out never stops – not even for pangs of hunger.
Us trashtacular gals know when it’s time to stuff our faces like truck drivers in order to keep the party going.
Once our bellies are full, we charge on divulging deep, dark secrets.
Photo ops get a little trying as we start to lean like the Tower of Pisa.
Once we start feeling fat from cramming food in our bellies, yoga moves seem like a good idea.
And then we get to feeling crafty. Who doesn’t want a marker creation on their forehead?
No gals evening is ever complete without the appearance of jazz hands.
An evening with my sophisticated crowd wouldn’t be the same without helping a lady to a chair.
But all good things must come to an end.
Some of the bigger bawl babies have to be coddled – soothed into knowing there will be another night to galavant around with the girls.
Coming home in the morning light isn’t as glamorous as Cyndi Lauper makes it out to be but at least my mother isn’t yelling at me to get my life right.
While it may take us a little time to get back into our daily saddles again, we always have fun in the back of our minds as we work the week away.
Who’s in for the next night out?
