I don't know how long it has been since I've sat on a lavish divan wearing a shimmery and elegant evening shirt while sipping on a martini. I think the last time was never.
For years my finest attire was a t-shirt adorned with baby drool, playdoh remnants, bleach stains and specks of paint; which matched random sections of my hair. One must at least attempt to coordinate. The wonderful thing about said gittup was that every other stay at home mommy looked identical. There was really no need for verbal interraction with each other back then. One look at the outfit and you knew exactly what they'd done that day.
I liked to refer to it as "textural communication."
(Hmmm, I'm thinking this would make a cute card for a new mom. A t-shirt with lumps of who knows what on it.)
So when I saw this darling diva all chilled out, I thought it would be a cute idea to make a little container to stash some fun money in for a girls night out. No kids, no shirts designed by Mac n' Cheese or Cheetos....just a fun filled evening of giggling with the gals and tying on a martini or four.
I've used a recycled can of wasabi peas and seaweed something or other; it's a fun snack, to make my little night out nest egg.
Motherhood is the most wonderful job I could ever have, but a night out on the town would most certainly be well deserved. I can already see it now, a group of friends sitting around the table, sipping drinks, being served our dinners and as the clock strikes 8, we're all yawning and ready to go home and get back in our flannel pajama pants and t-shirts! Ahhh, life is good. :)
Do you have something recycled, old or new project? Something painted, something stitched, something masculine, something femine something out of this world you'd love to share with us at Make It Monday? We certainly hope you do and we'd love to see, so please stop over and join in the 'ooohing and awwwwing' that happens daily at...
