Girls Only...........shhhhhhh!

Real Estate Agent

Girls love to share


Last week one of my girlfriends sent me an email invitation to come to her annual Christmas Party!  But this Christmas Party invite had a twist to it...It said Girls Only!  The instructions were to bring your favorite appeteaser, BYOB and a gift to play Dirty Santa, It will be a blast!  Hmmmm....Now THAT sounded like FUN!

The week wore on and I had not really had much time to think about the party or go shopping for a gift.  After all this is a very busy time of year with all of the preparations for Christmas.  Decorating the house for the holiday, shopping for presents, planning the BIG MEAL can be very time consuming.  And we still have work and household duties to perform. 

And then I got the message on my wall on Facebook.  Yes we are Facebook friends too.  "Are you coming to my party?"  ..........."Of course I am!" ......."Great, see you Friday!"

Well it certainly has not ever been a secret that girls know how to have fun!  And that we did!  Good food, good cheer, catching up on the latest, lots of laughs and giggles, and some of that plain ole' can't help it we have to have it "Girl Bonding".  It was one of those times that when your on your way home your thinking "That was soooo much fun, I am so glad I came!"


Girls love to get presents!


As the party was winding down  and everyone was packing up their  gift of the evening and getting ready to head home someone asked with a giggle...."Are you going to blog about this?"  And of course I laughed and didn't really answer that question.  I mean honestly you never really know from one moment to the next what you might blog about .....It just jumps into your head and the next thing you know there it is on the computer and you are hitting the Post Blog Entry button and there it is posted on the Internet for all the world to see!


No I didn't think that I would share such a wonderful secret of how much fun us girls had that night!  But the next day as I was back to work cruising around the New Home community where I was holding homes open for possible homebuyers to come and look, I glanced over in the seat and grinned when I saw my present from the evening and was reminded of how much fun it can be when it is Girls Only!


Now don't get us wrong, we love our guys, and ALL the time we spend with them is always off the charts!  But you know how it is when you say you "Need some space", just need some of that Guy time, a little beer and football, or a hunting trip?  You know what I am talking about....Uh huh!


And then when I woke up this morning I received an email from one of my "Girlfriends" with one of those poems about......Yes you guessed it..."Girlfriends"!  And that did it....I knew that I just had to share!




Hello my friends!  I thought this was beautiful and very true....


When I was little,
I used to believe in the concept of one best friend,
And then I started to become a woman.
And then I found out that if you allow your heart to open up,
God would show you the best in many friends.

One friend is needed when you're going through things with your man.
Another friend is needed when you're going through things with your mom.
The Magic of PINK
Another will sit beside you in the bleachers as you delight in your children
and their activities.
Another when you want to shop, share, heal, hurt, joke, or just be.
One friend will say, 'Let's cry together,'
Another, 'Let's fight together,'
Another, 'Let's walk away together.'

One friend will meet your spiritual need,
Another your shoe fetish,
Another your love for movies,
Another will be with you in your season of confusion,
Another will be your clarifier,
Another the wind beneath your wings.

But whatever their assignment in your life,
On whatever the occasion,
On whatever the day,
Or wherever you need them to meet you with their gym shoes on and hair
pulled back,
Or to hold you back from making a complete fool of yourself ..
Those are your best friends.

It may all be wrapped up in one woman, But for many, it's wrapped up in
One from 7th grade,
One from high school,
Several from the college years,
a couple from old jobs,
On some days your mother,
On some days your neighbor,
On others, your sisters,
And on some days, your daughters.
So whether they've been your friend for 20 minutes or 20 years,
Pass this on to the women that God has placed in your life
To make a difference.

Thanks for being in my circle.

I don't know if girls have MORE fun or not but they surely do have a different kind of fun.  My female roomie is all excited about a pajama party she's going to.  It's not even an overnight party.

Thanks for the cute post. We all need to take time to kick back, relax and have fun with our friends. Why not during the season of giving. I'm sure the dirty Santa was a gas!

I have a couple of really good girl friends, but with time constraints we only get together a few times a year...but watch out when we do.  Your post brought a smile to my face remembering the fun we've had!  Thank you!

BAHAHA!  I could not wait for this post, I knew you would do it.  I am honored you were able to attend  and we should do this more often, not only during the holidays.  We have been thinking for some about having a "WIG" party and you have to wear a wig to attend!  I can't wait, we must get this underway.  I hope this blog will be featured.  I love the poem but most of all...."GIRLS JUST WANT TO HAVE FUN"!

So beautifully written! I love the Girls Only times, they recharge the engines!!

I loved getting to know the wilder side of you we don't see at the office. At first I thought you were being altruistic swapping that gift, then I realized there might be a "Deviant Debbie" I've just never seen before!

I cherish time spent with my gal's not only fun it's necessary. There are just some things you can't share with a man. I'm going to send this poem on today to my Chica's. Thanks!

WOW, this one really got the comments.  Do you think your nickname could go from Little Debbie to Deviant Debbie???  It was just a good clean fun evening with lots of belly laughs!

Debbie,  Here we used to have GNO every week--Girl's Night Out.  It was so much fun but they don't do it anymore.  It sounds like you had a blast--I'm glad.
