Guys' and Girls' Nights Out

Guys' Night Out: Last night my husband, two oldest boys, and a bunch of dudes went to a Wild Sheep banquet. It happens once a year and they really look forward to it. Before they left, I asked my husband who he'd call first if he were to win a sheep hunt (an expensive and rare prize he said he'd rather win than a new car, to put it in perspective) and of course since I was the one asking, he said me. I can't really explain it, but I had this feeling that he would win. Around 11 last night, the phone rang and sure enough, he won the hunt! (And yes, he called me, his lucky charm, first!) I stayed up till well past midnight because I knew there'd be hooting and hollering as soon as they got home, and sure enough, there was. Even though I'm not a hunter and I think hunters are, well, weird, I can appreciate how excited he is and I am so happy for him.

Girls' Night Out: I don't know about you, but I LOVE Girls' Night Out (GNO)! Some I've been a part of include: Going to see a chick flick and dinner, dinner at a Wings place on Karaoke night, going to a local film festival in a park, having wine and snacks at a local gift shop after hours, and this week we're going to dinner and then a little shopping in a nearby city. I love hanging out and reconnecting with my girlfriends, and for GNO we always encourage people to invite their friends so we can meet new people.
Do you ever have Girls' or Guys' Nights Out? If so, what do you like to do?

At first I thought it meant your husband "won a sheep," and I thought, "Do you have to take care of it a pet?" But I'm thinking I got that wrong. ;)

Sure, I love GNO's, too! As you know, Wendy, I had a Girl Cousins outing in Park City a few months ago, four days long, which is the ultimate GNO, huh?

I love GNO's. For some reason most of my GNO's are at parties. No guys there to get jealous lol. Plus, we usually get free drinks when it's just us so that's always nice :)

yes, Tina, your girl cousin trip sounded like so much fun!

And I agree that Party (or club) GNO's are fun, Girl With A Mission. It doesn't matter what you wear or if you dance funny as long as you're with your girlfriends having fun! :)

Oh, I miss GNO. My husband moved us back to his (small) home town - nice schools, job opportunities, his family - but no girlfriends for me. So I go to Guys Night Out with him instead - and I'm thankful they let me! Poker!!!
