"Standing tall is a very admirable thing. There are very few stories in history of heroes who slouched to the rescue. Likewise, most individuals don't look up to people who are drooped over."

52 Weeks of Blessings- week 36 --GNO

Girls Night Out is this week's blessing.  We don't have these very often..... um, like never!  I used to have some ladies over on Friday nights to scrapbook, but the kids were always trying to join us.  This past Thursday Ashley called a bunch of us to come over Friday and have a GNO at her house.  We had a blast!


These are shots of the evening sky as we made our way to Ashley's.  You have to understand that we live in a very rural area and our ward boundries are rather large {with the stake boundries being extremely large, like most of Eastern MT and parts of western ND}, it is at least a half hour drive to her house.  All these photos were taken out of the car zooming down the freeway around 75 MPH.

There was, of course, yummy stuff to snack on.
We played a couple of games and visited.
We had a white elephant game that was fun.  
We're all hoping to have another fun night soon!
Here we all are with our white elephant gifts!  Thanks, Ashley, for the night away from the kids and husbands!  {and for all you ladies who didn't show up, shame on you!  You missed a fun night! :)  }

GNO is so fun! They try and have one once a month here. I finally went last month--we went to dinner, a movie, and then dessert! I had a blast and can't wait for the next one:) After seeing the photos it makes me miss my friends in Glendive even more!! Looks like everyone had a GREAT time!

How fun! Girls' Nights Out are so much fun. I'm glad you got to have such a great evening. :)

Sounds like a blast. I can't believe how spread out your ward is. I've always been spoiled with the ward being such close boundaries. I guess it makes for quite a trip to stake conference! Sounds like you have some fun friends, and glad you got a night out!!

I love GNO!! I just had one last week as well. We all could use them more often. I think it's refreshing and gets you ready for more 'mom' duties! Great blessing!

Just letting you know there's another contest running on my blog this week, in case you're interested. It's such a good book.

It's too bad we live for GNO. But thank goodness for them. Just wanted to say thanks for the nice comment on my talk.
