I love having my kids home for the summer. Not much of a schedule, lazy afternoons and lots of time together. That being said, it does get a little complicated with my painting schedule. With as busy as I have been in that regard, finding balance is hard. It is my responsibility to make sure my kids have a great summer and it is also my responsibility to help out financially at the moment. Figuring out how to do both well leaves me a little rundown sometimes.
I have a great group of friends that used to get together regularly, but as our families grow, there is less time to get out and enjoy girls time. We recently decided to get together and head out to dinner at Applebees. It was much needed and so good for all of us to check out and enjoy some time catching up and eating yummy food. (Applebees has the most delicious Chicken Caesar Salad!) The atmosphere there is casual and relaxing and we ended up chatting and eating for over two hours! Our server was great and didn't try to shove us along so she could reseat our table. That is always nice.
I usually feel a wee bit guilty getting out and enjoying time with friends, but I always come home so glad I did because I'm rejuvenated and ready to be better in all my areas in my life.
If you don't follow Applebees already, they are on Youtube, Twitter, Pinterest and Tumblr. They are encouraging us females to get out and enjoy some much needed time socializing with friends. Many of us do not make as much time for that as we need to and Applebees is working to get us out to enjoy some great company and good food.
They are hosting a giveaway to allow you to do just that.
Could you use a girls night out too? Leave a note in the comments section telling me why and be entered to win in a $150 Applebees giveaway!
