Ladies’ Night

28 Feb

This Saturday, I did something I haven’t done in a while – I spent the whole day with my Mom. And I have to say, it was really nice.

We went to see The King’s Speech, which won the Academy Award for Best Picture.  In case you were wondering, it’s a fantastic movie. Colin Firth plays a very compelling King George VI. I’m kind of a movie nerd (ask anyone who’s played me in Scene It? Movie), but it’s been some time since I’ve seen one in theaters. It felt good to get out of the house and do something I enjoy.

Mom and Me

Mother-Daughter Bonding

Later that evening, we headed to the Olde Dutch Mill Golf Course for Mardi Gras night. The golf course isn’t the typical 20-something hangout. It’s small, there isn’t loud music and the TVs are usually playing golf (shocker) and Keno. I go there with my parents every now and then, and it’s always a good time.

We celebrated Mardi Gras with Long Islands, New Orleans punch and Louisiana chicken skewers. To get beads we had to sing karaoke. This was our only option since we’re not ones to go flashing people.  My Mom and I sang a breathtaking rendition of “I Want It That Way” by the Backstreet Boys and a few other songs that won’t be mentioned.

All in all, it was a great night. We laughed, had some embarrassing moments (like when I accidentally punched the DJ in the throat while dancing) and shared some quality mother-daughter time.

When was the last time you hung out with your mom or dad? I promise it’s not as bad as you think ;-)
