Girl's Night

Greetings from North Carolina!

Why is that I couldn't wait to move away from here and now when I visit I want to move back? Granted, I don't want to live in the same town, or part of the state for that matter, but something about being out of the hustle and bustle of the city speaks to me. I am convinced I am one of those "grass is always greener" people when it comes to living situations. Perhaps that is why I have lived in 12497 places. I really hate the process of moving, but I get bored with apartments, cities, states, etc. pretty easily. I would have no problem picking up and moving as long as I have an awesome new apartment/house to live in (and of course a job with my husband and puppy tagging along too). Maybe after law school....

When I come down for my internship meeting I always stay with one of my good friends from grad school. She took an internship in the district where our university is, so it makes my trips a lot cheaper. Usually we go out to a restaurant, share some appetizers, and have a glass of wine the night before our meeting, but when I called her yesterday to let her know I was close, she told me that she and her roommate were hosting a "girl's night" at their apartment. Hmm...I was a little skeptical. I didn't know anyone and would be an outsider!

It ended up being a really nice night. My friend made a chicken casserole dish, one person brought rice, another brought salad, one brought brownies, and the rest of the girls brought wine. We spent most of the night talking about mindless stuff, which was perfect after a long day. They have been doing this for almost two months and rotate to a new person's house every week. Although once a week seems a little much in my busy life, I was thinking of starting something like this.

Who's in?


  1. I am in chickie! let's do the book club too!! It was so great to meet you and I am loving your blog! let's get together soon and go to secondi ! xo

  2. I'd be in for it! (Maybe once a month?) -La.

  3. I'd love to do this. We're going to start a "young married couple one" in the next few months that does this once a month, but I would LOVE to do a girl's night one as well. As long as you want me.

  4. I would love something like this! I've started cooking even more than usual, and I love these ideas. Girls nights can be so fun.

    So yes, me. :-)

  5. Lake Norman....

    It's the perfect location since the name "Norman" has take over our lives. Then, we can have girls night as often as we want...Haley only lives a quick 2 hours away...Charlotte is AWESOME. So ready.....move.

  6. sounds fun! I may have to use Steve's house again, since mine is tiny :)

  7. Also, you have inspired me to host one at mine sometime in the future! :-)
