National Girls' Night Out

Ladies, are you single and don't want to sit at home on Valentine's Day?

Or maybe you're in a relationship and just need some time away from your "better half"?

National Girls' Night Out
is perfect for you! The movie "He's Just Not That Into You" opens that weekend and who better to go see this movie with than your BFFs? And an online after-party on February 16th (the following Monday) with prizes? TOO MUCH! *lol*

Now, for myself, I am married (and mostly happily so), but I know the value of time out with the girls. And, I work all that weekend, so I'm going to have to get creative about when to see the movie. And that's ok. So, if you've got scheduling conflicts like me, don't worry about it! NGNO is about stepping back from our everyday lives!

Ladies, let's do this one for US! I hope to "see" you there!

I Have a Dream ... Too

This post is inspired by Selena's "Are You a Dreamer" entry at Blissfully Domestic.

I actually first read Selena's post last night, and I needed to put on my thinking cap for a while. At first my dreams didn't seem big enough. Then I thought ... our dreams are what we need as individuals to grow from where we are to a world where our dreams are realities.

So, onto my dreams:

I dream of a world where no children go to bed cold or hungry (including my own).

I dream of a world where 'common' sense and 'common' courtesy are the rule ... and not the exception.

I dream of a world where people who are 'different' are treated with respect and as equals.

I dream of a world where people actually take the time to stop and smell the roses.
