Family Friday- Ladies Day with the Mooney Ladies

After years of talking about having a ladies day, we FINALLY did it! They men of the Mooney side have been having a Guys day out for years now, and us women always talked about doing it. But like always, we would always forget or get too busy. Then another guy’s day would happen and it would remind us that we have forgotten once again to plan a ladies day. But this year was different! Alison was on top of it and planned it out. She did an amazing job with giving us many different choices. But, Mother Nature knew that we were trying to plan something, she threw a wrench into our plans and decided for rain to be in the forecast. Since our plans were to be outside, Alison asked Lisa to help out with the plan and change the area to the Sacramento area. Lisa did a great job and gave us lots of options. We picked an Escape room with lunch after. 

So I normally am not the driver in my family, so it took me a bit to find the place. But I found it. As I was parking, Lisa, Auntie Vicki and Jeanette were walking by. Perfect timing! I joined them and we made our way to the Sacramento Escape Room. Alison joined us and we waited to be check in. They like to start all the different teams at the same time so we waited for a few minutes. Fine with me since I was KID FREE! We were trying to escape the Séance Room. 

You have 1 hour to escape.... Seems easy, but it’s not! There were 5 of us, and it took about 30 minutes just to get into the next room. We had a blast working together, and doing something completely out of our normal. We were so close to escaping. We want to do it again! Maybe next time against the guys! I felt that the experience was pretty amazing and so detailed! You get up to 5 clues to help you escape. There is a time clock in the room so you know how much time you have left. I would give it 5 out of 5. 

After our Escape Room, We walked around for a while and looked for a good lunch spot. A hostess at another restaurant recommended this place called The Porch Restaurant and Bar. Just perfect for the 5 of us. We sat outside and the weather was great at the time. We ordered drinks- I had a mimosa. Then we ordered lunch. There were so many great items on the menu. I went with the Mac & Cheese with Pulled Pork on top. It was pretty good. By the time lunch was over, the rain has really started to come down. We moved inside to ride out the Storm. We sat inside for at least an hour. 

It was so great to meet up with the ladies and have some girl time. As women, we never make time for ourselves. There is always someone who needs help with something, laundry needs to be done- an actually put away- No my strongest suite, a diaper to be changed, dinner to be made or about a million other things to be done. But we FINALLY made time for us. And it was nice. Rob was off that weekend so he has all 3 kids! I think he was happy for me to go since he knows that I always put myself last. I mean, I did get a few calls from him to see when we would be done, but overall he was great! 

We are already talking about our next Ladies Day plans. I don't think we have to only do it once a year.... Did I hear wine tasting and spa days?!?! 

Until next time!
