I recently got a question from a reader about how I manage my time between hanging out with my husband but also with my girlfriends. As you can see from my blog, everything I write about does involve me and J, but I do see my girlfriends quite often. I think that it's important to have the balance in the relationship because although I do spend the majority of time with him and prefer it that way, it's important to me to see my girls often and have that girl time.
I try to see all of my girlfriends either individually or as a group at least once a month and on top of that we are always texting or emailing each other so I never feel like I go too long without knowing what's happening in their lives. Just because I'm married doesn't mean I don't still love listening to my single friends' dating horror stories or the rare occasion that they do meet a man that is worth their time. It is also fun to have girlfriends who now have babies as my thoughts on babies are still years away but it's nice to have a little bit of that in my life as well.
I recently went out with my friend Crystal to Boka and had a great time. We drank fun girly drinks, ate some fab food and came up with a project that you will (hopefully) be seeing on this blog soon!
And since I don't go anywhere without my camera I made sure to document everything we consumed that night.
The appetizers were delicious and flavorful.
Crystal was a good sport about letting me take pictures before she took a bite out of everything.
Dark chocolate creme brulee and powdered donuts!
We met a few years ago at my very first job out of college and even though we've both moved on to bigger and better things we still see each other often and always have the best time together. Our favorite topic? Makeup! She's the one that helped me pick out my first pair of false lashes.
So yes, I do still see my girls a lot the only difference now than a few years ago is that I get home at 11pm rather than 2am! That makes for a happy husband. :)
