Galentine's Day Celebration

Recently, Amanda wanted to get together sans kids for an outing and when she mentioned it to me I immediately went crazy and planned a Galentine's Day night out.

What is Galentine's Day, you ask? Well, just a bunch of ladies getting together, exchanging gifts, eating good food and basically having an awesome night out.

We decided on Cafe Rio since it would be casual, delicious (obviously), and there wouldn't be any trouble splitting a check/tip. I was able to get there early enough to decorate the table with some Dollar Tree garland and Leslie Knope-inspired Galentine printables for everyone to take home.

It was a fun group of girls- some I know from my neighborhood, and others I know from high school. I'm so glad so many of us were able to get together to talk for a few hours, and to exchange gifts. It's so rejuvenating to spend time with other grown ups!

I mentioned to Sophia that it feels like these kinds of outings are a big deal to me now. Or, rather, the fact that they're now not so difficult is a big deal to me now. I used to love going out and being adventurous and busy. And then little Linc was born and I became a completely different person who couldn't imagine leaving the house.

Now that he's a little easier I don't feel badly leaving him with Kev for bedtime. I know I need these outings with friends and someday I'll have these outings with Kev because Linc won't need to be soothed to sleep so intensely (and I'll get a babysitter! WOO!). I'm really looking forward to it and have even suggested to Kev we go to one of those art classes where everyone paints the same thing. I think he's actually considering it!

So, Happy Galentine's Day, ladies. Hopefully we'll have another night out before next February.
