Just what this Mama needed ~ An evening out with friends, laughing myself silly, playing Bunko, losing Bunko, and only worrying about food for about 5 minutes!
Tonight was the monthly Bunko group for the Coast Guard wives. I haven't been since I was a very pregnant lady, so I was looking forward to seeing everyone and getting my game on!
The evening began as it usually does; a bunch of women standing around cackling! HAHA It was 80's themed and I have to say, not very many people dressed up. Ivy and I did (of course) and that is all that matters! I'd never miss a chance to doll up, especially 80's style!
I planned well for the evening. I saved my points so I could enjoy a few of the items I brought to snack on and a few that my friend, Jenna, was bringing (bacon wrapped pretzels!!!!!!!!!!!). I had 3 of my Sausage Stars and 2 of Jenna's Pieces of Heaven (as I am referring to them now). That would be 6 points for mine and I am going to go ahead and figure 6 points for hers too. I made sure to not hang out around the food table.
Another thing I made sure to do was to bring along my own drink. Once again, Pinterest to the rescue! I quickly threw together Hungry Girl's Oh-So-Mocha-Coco Swappuccino. This drink was oh so yumo! If I didn't have a few gift cards to Starbucks to use, I'd be less likely to go there with this drink!
I guess my "losing" is catching on, because last night I lost 18 games of Bunko out of 25! HAHA That's ok with me though, I got my $5.00 entry fee back and had a great night of fun for free!
I did not go over my points. I did not need to use my Weekly 49 either. All in all a very
Special thanks to my girls, Crystal and Jenna, for the giggles!
