Everyone needs a mini vacation from daily life. I think most people, especially women, get caught up in day to day and forget to take sometime for themselves. It’s so important to take a break and remember who you are on the inside. Sometimes we just need a little night out with the girls.
I have a tendency to get caught up in the person I am now. Now, I’m a Twitter addict, Wife, Mom, Blogger, and sometimes Website designer; the order is never the same. This current description of me is definitely not the person my husband married. My husband married a person who danced all the time, loved clothes, make up, traveling, golfing and actually doing something with her hair. Now I tend to wear my hair in a ponytail and I don’t find myself visiting the MAC counter on a monthly basis anymore. I loved performing and never ever pictured myself as a stay at home mom. Now the only person I perform for is my 3 year old daughter that I stay home with. This is not the person I expected to be nor is it the person my husband expected to be married too. Finding a balance of who I am now and who I use to be is a constant struggle, but a very important struggle. I need to take a break now and then to remember who I was and who I still am on the inside.
Last Wednesday 20 of us from San Diego and Orange County got that mini vacation in the form of an extend happy hour at Pacific Coast Grill. I can’t remember the last time I laughed so hard!

Each one of these women are amazing at what they do! I was so honored to be there with them and just absorb their greatness. Make sure you’re following them on twitter and visiting their Blogs. I promise, they’ll make your day a little brighter!
Thank you ladies for such a great night and a special thank you to Sugar (@SugarJones and www.sugarjones.tv) for all your work organizing this event!!!
