All Partied Out …

in General

Last night I stayed out ALL night! *GASP* don’t worry; it’s not as sordid as it sounds.

It was a planned birthday night out for one of my closest friends. Her husband booked us a luxury suite at River Cree Resort and Casino. Besides the odd cruise ship casino, I have never been to one. I am not much of gambler … I lost $60 in 10 minutes and was done.

I rarely put on makeup…

Make up ...

I figured I may as well get a picture.

Look who's 40

Here are a couple of the girls. The birthday girl is the ‘red head’.

We had a great meal!

Not for me thanksI had none of this! I don’t drink, but that’s a whole other post. I love the colours though.

No sleep
I spent very little time in here. We were still talking at 5 a.m.

We had tons of laughs. Happy Birthday Karrie!

Ohhh … my forty year old bones can’t do this anymore … I am going to bed!

    Staying out all night at 40, not bad. I’m 32 and the last time I stayed up until 2am I was wiped.

  • Kilikina January 6, 2008, 8:56 pm

    you look great

  • Kristian January 6, 2008, 8:56 pm

    I’m 27 and can’t remember the last time I stayed out all night. Thats rather pathetic isn’t it? Oh-and I love the camera! D80 is it? I have D40x and am thinking of upgrading.

    Oh my goodness… I stayed up until midnight on new Year’s and I was wiped all week! Good on you for having a girls night out :O)

  • Angella January 6, 2008, 10:11 pm


    If I stayed up until 5am I WOULD DIE.

    Good for you :)

  • Michelle January 6, 2008, 10:12 pm

    It has been ages since I have stayed up past midnight. I am way to grumpy with the kids if I don’t get enough sleep! We are having a girls weekend for March break. Can’t wait for a kidless weekend of wine, good friends and skiing.

  • Amy January 6, 2008, 10:24 pm

    With makeup you look even more pretty than your last picture…and really, really not 40!

  • jw4mkc January 6, 2008, 10:31 pm

    Okay..that has to be a Marriott.. We stayed at one for the Marine Ball & I loved the bedding!! There was even a booklet in the room so that you could order all or any of the bedding. I want one of those comfy down comforters – you know, the ones that say “ahh, hotel bed.” Anyways.. you are too funny with the camera right by your head – but look great (are you like me and feel too goofy smiling when taking a pic of yourself – I feel cheesy that way).. Okay, and again.. What is with the skin.. the friends too – That is it.. I am moving to Canada! (well, if I can get the nerve up to tell my hubby & the US Marines.) :)

  • Deb January 6, 2008, 10:50 pm

    Sounds like a blast! And by the way, you hardly need makeup! your face is flawless!!

  • glittersmama January 6, 2008, 11:01 pm

    I would have been dead on my feet.

  • Caryn B January 6, 2008, 11:05 pm

    I’m a new mommy so I know all about being up at random hours!

  • Jenny M January 6, 2008, 11:32 pm

    Sounds like there may have been a Starbucks run in between=).

  • Tara January 7, 2008, 12:01 am

    wow… I don’t think I could stay up all night if my life depended on it… unless my kids were MAKING me stay up all night. I’ve done that far too often :)

  • bree January 7, 2008, 12:46 am

    that looks like a spendid time! So fun!!

  • Amanda January 7, 2008, 6:01 am

    Girls night outs are too few… Glad you had the opportunity to go out and have some fun!! Hope everything was in one piece when you got home – I figured the blog would end with a pic of what Georgia got into while Mr. MK was in charge!! *laugh*

  • Divrchk January 7, 2008, 8:10 am

    What a great night out! I could use a girls night in a big way.

  • Jamie January 7, 2008, 8:53 am

    Awesome! I am soooo jealous!

  • Kait January 7, 2008, 9:04 am

    That sounds fun. My husband, my sister and her husband and I all went to Niagara Falls, Canada last weekend and gambled. I only pay the penny slots (surprisingly fun) but my husband likes the card tables. He lost $93 in 10 minutes…and never played cards again!

  • Heather January 7, 2008, 10:40 am

    What a fun break from the norm…I’m so glad you had fun…but, I agree with most of the other posts above I’m 29 and am dead on my feet if I go to bed after 10pm. :)

  • Colleen January 7, 2008, 10:43 am

    What a really fun birthday idea. Especially making it an all night girls night.

  • Jinny Toffelmire January 7, 2008, 11:01 am

    Wow, how did you do it? I can’t even stay up until 10pm anymore!

  • katie bowen January 7, 2008, 11:23 am

    it’s good to get all made up and dressed up at least every 10 years or so……i guess i’ll be due in just a few short years…better find that cute black dress!

    sounds like a wonderful treat. women must do that more often!

  • lace January 7, 2008, 12:18 pm

    Great camera! How I would love one like that.

    Staying up all night, I can’t do that anymore and I am just starting my 30s.

  • Susy-Q January 7, 2008, 12:40 pm

    I am tired just thinking about staying up all night. I honestly can’t remember the last time I did that. Must be a long time ago.

    Looks like you had a fab night. Enjoy your sleep!

  • Naomi January 7, 2008, 3:30 pm

    Does Georgia let you sleep in? How nice.

    And nice of you not to post the pics you took after talking until the wee hours, especially if you’re the only non-drinker!

  • Cindi Hoppes January 7, 2008, 4:00 pm

    Looks like fun to me! It is great to have good friends! Cindi

  • yan January 7, 2008, 4:06 pm

    Sounds like so much fun !!

  • Lisa January 7, 2008, 4:18 pm

    Sounds like you all had a great time. It is so freeing to leave the kids and not be mommy for a little while.

  • mama k January 7, 2008, 6:52 pm

    A night out with the girls is always fun!

  • joyce January 7, 2008, 7:49 pm

    that bed looks heavenly…i love good linens!!!

    p.s. georgia looks like a cherub. for real. she’s stunning.

  • Robynl January 7, 2008, 11:41 pm

    that sounds like my style in losing-very fast.
    Hope you had a great night.

  • Laura January 8, 2008, 9:17 am

    ohmigosh, I cannot even stay up until 1am without being a zombie the next day… my husband and I have accepted that we no longer have lives. :P

  • nancypants January 9, 2008, 12:16 am

    Can you tell me what kind of flash that is?! Thanks!! :^D

  • laurie January 9, 2008, 1:54 pm

    wow… the only time i stay up is when i get sucked into a movie or to a show on HGTV. and makeup? that hasn’t touched my face in months!! LOL

  • Alexia January 10, 2008, 10:29 am

    Staying up until 5…I can do. Staying up with ADULTS until 5 – I wish! I hope you had F-U-N!

  • Reuben Powell May 12, 2010, 5:24 am

    Sometimes it is hard to think of a Birthday Idea, most of the time i want something which is both funny and sentimental.`;;
