Girl Time x 2 {What's for Dinner 3/10/2010 & 3/11/2010}

I was lucky enough during this deployment to have awesome Army wife friends who were also going through a deployment. We laughed together, cried together, drank together, fought occasionally, and spent oodles and oodles of time together. Although we had only known each other for a max of 6 months, we bonded as though we had been friends for years and years. We spent just about every weekend together almost non-stop and often met up during the week too. I can attribute this deployment going by so quickly largely in part to these girls.

Since most of our husbands have returned, one of the biggest adjustments has been the sudden decrease in girl time. Granted, we still get together about once a week but usually we bring the husbands along. And although the husbands tend to seclude themselves away from us crazy women on the back porch or as far away from us as possible, it still doesn't count as true "girl time".

So last night and tonight are all about "girl time" and I'm super excited about it. No matter how much you love and adore your husband, girl's nights are an essential part of staying sane!

Last night I went to a "coffee" which is basically just a get-together with the wives in my husband's unit. The host served sandwiches.

Tonight I have BUNCO with my girlfriends. I'm super excited and hoping I don't have as bad of luck as I did last time. I don't know what Amanda is serving but I'm sure it will be delicious!

In honor of my nostalgia for our constant, year-long girl time I'm going to share some photos of me and my amazing friends that were taken over the past year.
