Mardi Gras Tea Party - Happy Mardi Gras!

Happy Mardi Gras!  We celebrated Mardi Gras at my mom's Mardi Gras Tea Party.  From the Mardi Gras masks & beads to the Cajun & Creole foods... the essence of Mardi Gras was captured.  We had a great time.  My mom purchased Mardi Gras themed fabric from the fabric store to use as table clothes.  This is an excellent and inexpensive way to customize your party tables.

Disney Side Bunco Party - #DisneySide

I hosted a #DisneySide Bunco Party recently and we had a blast.  I invited all of the ladies in my neighborhood for a girls' night out.  The theme was #DisneySide and with a touch of Valentine's Day.  We had the best time.  The night was full of great conversation, laughter, delicious food, fun and games.  Check it out for yourself...

Moms' Night Out Movie #MNOmovie

My best friend and I had the opportunity to go to a Moms' Night Out movie screening last night.  We had the best time.  As you can see from the pictures, we had a moms' night out of our own!  We enjoyed dinner and drinks at Ruby Tuesday before walking over to the movie theater to watch Moms' Night Out.  It is a hilarious feel good movie with a great message.  We could relate to almost everything in the movie and laughed the entire time.  This movie is not just for the ladies.  My husband will relate to what the dads in the movie were going through while their wives were out "unplugging"!  I cannot wait to see it with my husband.  

I picked up a new term... stress paralyzed.  Have you ever found yourself so stressed out that you are paralyzed and you have to regroup before moving onto the next task?  I cannot wait to see my family's reaction when I tell them that I cannot do something, because I am #stressparalyzed! :-)  I highly recommend this movie to everyone.  It's a great excuse to get out with your girlfriends for a moms' night out.
