Bunco Mamas... Girls' Night Out!

Bunco is a social event. It’s a party. Twelve of us get together monthly, and we leave everything else behind. Kids are home with dad, and moms have a night out. We come without our diets, and we snack on m&ms, chex-mix, and anything else in front of us. We eat dinner and have double dessert. Most importantly, we have girl talk. We talk about kids, family, friends, husbands, jobs, TV shows, movies, current events, and whatever else. And we have a great time playing a mindless dice game!

July's BBQ

Finally... I have pictures to post! This time I put my camera in my pocket so I'd for sure remember to snap a few.

We had a great time at July's Backyard Bunco BBQ!
(And thanks to Scott for his delicious backyard grilling
while we gabbed away in the air-conditioned house!)

Hope to see you all in August for some
south-of-the-border fun at Sarah's Fiesta Bunco!
(I plan on looking for my little gift when we are in New Mexico!)

May Bunco Pictures

Oh wait. There are no pictures.
Obviously too distracted with the excitement of the evening,
I again neglected to take any pictures.
None. Zero. Zilch.
bah humbug.

February Bunco

Once again I didn't have my camera ready, and I missed out on some great pictures of a really fun Valentine's Bunco! Fortunately Julia reminded me before the last four of us headed out the door, so we do have a few pictures for February... including one of where I stabbed myself with the pencil. Next time I will have to come wearing protective gear! :)
We'll see you all in March at Sarah J's house-
Bring a nuturing gift... like something for the garden!

And we left Sarah with a nice pile of goodies
to donate to the pregnancy center!

Think RED!

Good Times

I'll get a photo album for January up later... For now, you can watch the video I accidentally recorded when I was trying to take a picture! And, of course, it was such a silly little one-second video that I had it play several times in a row!

Christmas Morning

We had Christmas Morning for December Bunco,
and we had a blast rolling dice in our jammies!
And we each left with a new ornament for our trees...
(Someone even went home with a pickle!)

November Pictures... but just a few!

Hmmm... for some reason, no one reminded me that I forgot to get my camera out to take pictures this month... what does that mean, I wonder? :) Yeah, yeah, I get it! I'm the annoying person that blinds you with my flash!! But never fear, I've still got pictures to post!

Fortunately Christine had her camera handy and took a few pictures before everyone had left, so even though it is a little one, there is still a November Bunco photo album!

November Bunco was a lot of fun! We had such a good time-- we had a full house... and full, happy bellies to go along! Big thanks to our subs and our new group members! Amberley and Julia, hopefully we get to see you in December. We're meeting at Debbie's house on the 12th, and we're doing an ornament exchange!
