Girls Night Out...

I've been looking forward to last night for over a week. I went with two friends to see Mamma Mia! It was FANTASTIC, even though I did cringe a bit when Pierce Brosnan was singing. Afterwards we went and grabbed something to eat and spent three hours talking. I love Girls Night Out, and I don't go often enough. When my kids were smaller, it was a big priority for me. I still need a night away every so often, but honestly, now that my kids are bigger it's a little lower on the priority list. Thanks, John for letting me go and for taking great care of the kids!

(My computer is working at the moment, but it's been very inconsistent the last several days. I couldn't even turn it on most of yesterday.)

Girl, I saw Mamma Mia! twice in ONE week it was so awesome and I'm absolutely addicted to the soundtrack...I too enjoyed seeing that movie with my girlfriends...it's a great "friend" movie, for sure!! Sorry about your computer woes, hope "she'll" hang in there...hey, you could name your computer (you know I do! My laptop is Johnny Cash b/c it's all black) and maybe she'll feel more love ;)!!

Girls Night sounds like such fun. You're not the first person I heard say that about Pierce Brosnan. Ha!

I saw this with my group of girlfriends about two weeks ago, and I swear we all wanted to run to the front of the theater and dance right along with them. I'm a big Pierce Brosnan fan and like you I cringed a bit at his singing - not great, but the movie was such fun, and like you we spent hours having dinner afterwards. I plan to buy it when it comes out, for sure and maybe then I can dance along in the safety of my family room!

I still need to see this! So glad you had fun on your GNO! Abba makes everything better, doesn't it. ;)

Doesn't it feel good to get together with friends and just talk and talk and laugh and laugh?! I'm glad you had GNO. :)

Mer,

I saw this movie last night with 5 girlfriends--wahoo! I knew NOTHING about the story, and had a great time. My face hurt from smiling so much at the end!

I have to agree with you that I felt the same way when Pierce was singing. Reading your comment about that made me laugh out loud! =)

Have a wonderful weekend!

I've got to see this movie...I keep hearing everyone rave about it. Definitely a Girls Night Out movie, though, not sure my hubs would be down with it.

So sorry about your computer! I know the feeling of being cut off and disconnected...not fun!
