Lauren's 4 more years until 30 party

I'll start with pictures this time for something different...


I had an amazingly and incredibly fun weekend with my girlfriends! Lauren, my BFF since 7th grade turned 26 and to celebrate we rented a limo and went wine tasting on Saturday afternoon all around Woodinville. I don't like wine, or at least I didn't until I found 3 bottles I liked (and bought) this weekend, two whites and a red to be exact. I don't drink often, so by the time we were done at the first winery I was already buzzed...it was actually quite comical and the other girls said I was very entertaining...whatever that means!?!?!?!

There were 10 of us and would you believe that there was NO drama all day long? 10 women and NO drama, how often does that happen? My other BFF chelsey was there too, and she and I didn't know any of the other girls except for Lauren. Nothing like a little drinking to break the ice though.

We went to about 5 winery's and then headed back to the Kirkland area. We headed up to TGI Fridays because we still had about an hour before our reservation, and we had more drinks (can you believe that?) and some appetizers to pass the time.

Then we headed to the Purple cafe for more wine and a delicious dinner (steak, medium rare!!!) and spent a few hours there. But all of us were itching for some dancing so as soon as the check was split up between all 16 of us (we had more guests join us for dinner who didn't come for the limo ride) we headed off for a night of partying. Have you ever waited for a check to be split 16 different ways? Might as well order another bottle of wine to pass the time, LOL!

Then we went to good old Valhalla's for 80's night and some booty shaking dancing.

Well, I on the other hand, am glad you got the chance to get away from your demanding schedule and let loose for ONE day! Good for you!

Wow I did not know being a mom meant you could NEVER go out with the girls and have fun.

How dare anyone judge her for cutting loose for ONE DAY? She IS a great mom, and deserves to have a day to be free and without stress every now and then. Those days are so rare. I hope your cyber-concious is throbbing. You clearly have some anger issues that need a more constructive outlet.

...Julie, good for you for letting yourself have a fun day/night out with the girls! Hope you feel rejuvinated. :)

Julie, Good for you for going out and having a good time with your friends. You deserve it! My trips are only 4 months so I can't wait for a night out. I feel sorry for people that will never know the joys and challenges of 3.

Anon- You can suck it!! I wanted to stoop to your level.

Jen, mom to triplet girls 4months.

Looks like you all had a great time, and dont worry about going out and having fun. I also have triplets (they are almost 4) and getting out helps keep things in check!

You are a young (as you feel), single, responsible, hardworking mother. Kudos to you for trying to hold onto a piece of yourself. It will only make you a better person and a mother if you are not completely burnt out. To juggle all that you have to juggle...we've all heard horror stories of moms over the edge. I hope you get to do it again. I'd jump at the opportunity.
