We all know how it is this time of year… we get so busy with shopping & family & busy schedules. So what I REALLY need this time of year is just a fun night out with the girls (no offense, guys!). So that’s what we did the other night — left the kids and the boys at home, and hit the town! Well, hit the town as much as moms who have to get up early the next day can, at least…
Recipe for a successful girls night:
- Good friends (and mine are the best!)
- A good place to go that’s conducive to talking and sharing. We decided on tapas at Pura Vida (highly recommend, for those of you in Atlanta). This worked out great since we just orders bunches of good food to share.
- Fun cocktails – my favorite for the evening was a margarita made with grapefruit soda, which I’m determined to recreate… Stay tuned for that!
- Money to spend*. The nice thing about tapas for dinner is that we set a general budget at the beginning, and then just split the bill up 4 ways at the end. No stress. Consider it a Christmas present to your mental health!
*This girls night was especially fun since we had some money to spend from Serve, the new service from American Express. It’s super easy… we all signed up for Serve online first, then it is simple to just email your friends money. Plus you get $10 just for trying it if you sign up right now… a great start to your girls night out budget!
