I can’t for the life of me remember the last time I was out and about, Kid AND Husband free especially on a Saturday night… so my girls night this past weekend was a rare occasion. I was invited by one of my good friends to a “Girls Night In” which for me was really a girls night out since I wasn’t at home for once. Not only was it an awesome get together of girlfriends, it was also a “Pure Romance” party. AKA: a sex toy party where we all get drunk on wine and laugh about adult toys while stuffing our faces with finger foods.
It was definitely my kind of night. Being a mommy is a 24/7 job so a night off was something I desperately needed. My son is almost 4 years old now, I could probably count on one hand the number of nights I had out of the house with my friends without my son. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining, sacrifice is part of being a parent and I would give up anything for my son to be happy and raised properly… but lets face it, in order to raise a happy and healthy child I need to be happy and healthy too and taking some me time is definitely part of that.
It felt so strange but so amazing to just be sitting in my friend Kim’s apartment having a glass of wine, rocking out to bad pop songs and doing our hair for the night. It took me back to the days before I had my son when a night like this was more common than not. After getting ready we headed over to my lovely friend Alice’s place since she was the hostess for the evening. I saw a lot of awesome ladies and we all settled in for the festivities. First of all just check out all the wine and food involved here. The photo of the wine is just what Kim and I brought for the party. Cheap but good. I had the pink Pinot Grigio all night. I also made red velvet mini cupcakes.
My favorite Pure Romance Consultant ever Beth was amazing with her demonstrations and party games and what not. I really envy her for her ability to speak in front of a group and make an entire room of girls laugh and carry on. The products that we were able to test (perfumes, massage oils, etc.) were amazing! Way better than I thought would come from a direct selling company. I have to say, quite a few things were added to my wishlist!
If you are looking for a fun girls night idea I would totally recommend doing a party like this. If you have a good consultant it can be a whole lot of fun!
