I have a girls night tonight. A sleepover even. I'm going to a fancy cabin somewhere out of cell phone range with a bunch of women from my ward.
When I was invited, I said to my friend, "It sounds like a lot of fun but I've never left (my son) overnight before."
"None of us have," she said.
Oh yeah... This fact does not make me special. This is a first for most of us.
Anyway, I want to look cute tonight for dinner and whatever fun ensues at the cabin. (The husband of one of my friends is certain there will be lingerie and pillow fights... He'd sure like to come. He'd sure be disappointed.)
But, I swear, on the days I care the most about looking nice I end up looking like a total goof.
Take my high school reunion for instance. I carefully chose my outfit well in advance and had a mental image of how I would look. And I was hot! In my mind.
Then the night of the reunion rolled around and I put the plan into action.
And I ended up looking a lot like Nellie Oleson.
But my dress was still cute.
Anyway, I probably shouldn't care about tonight. I know I'll have fun no matter what and nobody but I will care if my hair looks cute.
Tell me, do you spend extra time primping for a girls night? Have you ever had a big sleepover with a bunch of Mormon mommies?
I'm excited. I've had my pajamas picked out for weeks.
P.S. The votes for the coloring contest are pouring in. You have the rest of the weekend to vote for your favorite and get your friends to vote for you!
