Girls Night Out…Friends, Fun and a Good Cause

by Angela on October 28, 2011

A couple weeks ago I wrote an article about my 10 minutes of model “fame”.  Well those 10 minutes, and a new friend, Leigh Macdonald, of Nice Shoes, No Drama, led to another 10 (more like 30) minutes last night.  Deena and I and my two other friends, Sarah and Kate, modeled clothes for a Girl Night Out event.  The event was held at a local boutique gift store, The Dandelion Patch, and featured clothes from a nearby clothing store, Rich Hippie.  I would never use either of those words, rich or hippie, to describe myself, but the clothes were fabulous and we had so much fun!  I will definitely be going back to BOTH stores in the very near future.  And the Dandelion Patch donated a percentage of sales  for the night to the Avon Walk team I am on, The Step Sisters.  How awesome is she for doing that?

When I look at this picture, I realize just how blessed I am to have such amazing friends in my life.  That was actually the best part of the evening for me…spending it with 3 friends from 3 different walks of my life.  I didn’t think about this until I sat down to write this recap, but now that I look at this picture, it just makes me feel all warm inside (yes, I’m getting a little sappy here).  Now I will digress from the evening festivities and talk about these amazing women.

From left to right, after me:

Kate is my newest friend of the 3.  We met out and about in the neighborhood, at school functions and Pampered Chef parties and have known each other for a few years.  Our 4 year olds are BFFs, and our hubbies (the other kids in our lives) have taken a strong liking to each other.  🙂  We’ve agreed that our husbands were built from the same mold…it’s kind of creepy.  And do not attempt to adjust your screen, she really is model-material tall and beautiful.

Sarah is my oldest friend from childhood.  We think we met in 4th grade.  🙂  I meet her weekly for coffee with another childhood friend and we have started an annual girls’ weekend tradition.  Sarah and I have been in and out of each other’s lives for almost 30 years (OMG I just totally dated myself!) and I think now we’re in it for good, which I love!  I live for our weekly coffees….her friendship makes me happy.

And most of you know beautiful Deena.  Deena and I met in high school.  Just like Sarah, our life paths have crossed in and out since high school, but we always find our way back to each other.  🙂  I was so glad she was able to share this event with me.  We don’t live super close to each other, so I cherish the times we are actually both at the same place at the same time.

So when I look at this picture, it makes me think of my life journey.  So many memories formed with these ladies and I hope to create many more.  Thank you all for a wonderful night.  MWAH!  😉

I had so, so much fun! Thank you for your gentle encouragement (wink, wink) in suggesting I make my modeling debut with three gorgeous ladies. I couldn’t have done it without you! And it is easy to see why Sarah and Deena are your forever friends, Angela: they are beautiful inside and out, as are you. Love to you all!
