10 Signs Mama Needs a Girl’s Night Out

Me and my besties, like forever ago

This weekend – this glorious weekend – I’m headed to a resort with my girlfriends for one amazing night of female fun.

I’m pretty sure I haven’t spent a girl’s night away since the last time I attended a bachelorette party. Once you hit your mid-30’s and all your friends get married, the opportunities to engage in innocent girly nonsense get woefully slim.

As far as I can tell, there are two kinds of girl’s nights:

1. The chill kind – Characterized by flannel pajamas, Uggs, near constant room service, boxed wine, and Ryan Gosling DVD’s.

2. The “Woo-hoo! Mama just got a tramp stamp!” kind – Characterized by wigs, flashing jewelry, body shots, fresh ink, momentary lapses in judgment, and a drunk dial to your husband.

Because I lost my left boob chicken cutlet, my upcoming weekend of girl power debauchery is of the chill variety. I don’t care if we do nothing more than nap for eight hours, pay $74.95 in hotel movies, and engage in unadulterated carb abuse; being with my besties is good enough for me.

One night. Four 35+ year old laydees. Boxed wine. Let the sweet estrogen roll.

I’m needing this girl’s night something fierce. As much as I love playing wife and mom, every now and again it’s simply delicious to swear like a sailor, talk about periods, and cry over something.

If you’re exhibiting any of the following telltale signs, I suggest you email this post to your bestie and get planning stat. It’s time Mama.

    stupid-hilarious since the Clinton administration. Ideas include: Kelly Clarkson karaoke, pretend wedding dress shopping, breaking out into spontaneous song, going braless, and wearing neon leg warmers.
