Girls (moms) night out

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was wonderful and I will tell you why in a bit, but first I wanted to show you my latest obsession- this Zara plaid blanket scarf.

I believe it is DEFINITELY my new favorite scarf. It is warm and so versatile, I just can’t get enough of it.

I have already pinned a million (well not quite a million) ways to wear it too on pinterest. I cannot wait to style this scarf in multiple ways. Now on to my weekend and girl or mom talk.

I have come to learn that in every mom or wifes life there comes a time where you just want to be free of responsibilities or kids, this past Friday night it happened. For four hours I was kid-less and chose this time to spend with two of my sisters shopping. It was glorious to laugh at the wittiness and attitudes of my sisters (both speak their mind to much), as oppose to my shy personality. The quality time and good deals were also a plus.

Lately, I have been learning that moms often times feel guilty to have alone- enjoyment time, am I alone in this? I brought up this question to a group of other moms or single women alike at church the other night in Bible study and found I wasn’t alone. Even if you are not a mom, I also learned years ago that sometimes even wives with or without children need separation from the stress of life and just do things for self. Examples might be going to get a facial, go for a long drive, soak with a book and candles in a warm bath etc. I have been taking a few more hot baths lately, online shopping when I can because I have learned that I need to treat myself or the old saying comes true “If momma ain’t happy nobody is happy.”
Before I get to the details of the outfit I wore above for my girls night out. I would like to share some links of other blogging friends of mine and their take on taking a break as a mom. I enjoyed these and I hope you will too.

  1. I just ordered a blanket scarf from ON, but it is red plaid. Oh, do I love yours! I have not checked out Zara yet, is that wrong or what?! I agree, it is important to recharge… I took a bubble bath just the other night and read my latest Real Simple. I also love to spend time with my husband without the kids, it is easier to really talk that way. Great and thoughtful post, as always 🙂

  2. That scarf looks perfectly cozy for chilly weather! And yes, it’s good to just take some time to just do something that’s pure fun once in a while!
