My Girl's Night Out--WOOHOO

Who Needs A Girls Night?

I DO!!!

So....I loaded up some girlfriend's and HAD ONE! Once of my New Year's Resolutions is to get out and about more and make things happen in my life. I'm not going to meet Mr. Right (or Mr. Right for Right Now) by sitting on my couch or at my computer. Don't get me wrong....I LOVE to be a part of this wonderful blogging world (and I'm still going to "sofa surf" on but this is going to be my year of BIG CHANGES and CREATING AN EXCITING LIFE!

Last night was the first night of Beth Moore's new bible study, The Inheritance! Are any of you familiar with her!??!!? I am SO lucky to live in the same city Beth Moore lives in and can easily attend her bible studies because her church is only 5 miles from my house. This study will go on for 8 more weeks and if you'd like more info---here's the link: If you are in the Houston area and want to come, please do! There isn't a cost to attend, or a study book to buy or homework to do. It's just some good girl bonding time!

Then....I had a chance to attend ANOTHER Girls Night guess what?!?! I'm going out again! WOOHOO!

Once, again I consider myself very blessed to live in Houston and be able to go to many cool ministries. In a few weeks some of my Honduras Mission Trip Friends and I will be going to see Kate Gosselin, Ayiesha Woods, Renee Swope, Lysa TerKeurst, and Jason Catron.
KSBJ, Christian radio station that is putting this event on has promoted the event as a "Girls Night Out" and asked: Has your dog ever locked you out of the house, while you stood in the backyard half-dressed? Ever gotten to your car after a long, stressful day only to find a parking ticket glaring at you from under the windshield wiper? After reading your blogs I think you ladies could beat some of those stories, hands down! LOL!

A drawing will be done to determine which lady needs a Girls Night Out the most. The lucky winner will receive this Grand Prize:
• 4 FRONT ROW tickets to KSBJ's Girls Night Out event
• A copy of Kate Gosselin's book, Multiple Blessings
• A Proverbs 31 Ministries t-shirt
• 2 – Proverbs 31 Ministries books:What Happens When Women Say Yes to God by Lysa TerKeurst (Autographed Copy)God's Purpose for Every Woman: A Proverbs 31 Ministries Devotional•
CD: The Power of One ~ Lysa TerKeurst's Testimony
• DVD: A Walk to Remember: Living and Leaving a Legacy by Renee Swope
• A year subscription to P31 Woman Magazine

Pretty Cool, huh? I'm not in the running for the contest but I'm am really excited about the program! I think they still have a few tickets available.....I'd love to see you there.


  1. Get out, have fun, and enjoy yourself wherever you are!!!

  2. You are lucky to live in Houston for lots of reasons. It's really cold outside here. I don't want a girls night out right now. I want to stay in the house and snuggle. But, you get out there and enjoy yourself!! Hugs, Terrie

  3. I am going to have my first girls night out in 8 years!!!!

  4. Good for you!! I need to do the same thing.

    I've done one of Beth Moore's studies before. Loved it but it's time consuming so be prepared.

    Definitely go have fun!!

  5. Good for you for going out. I know, it is very easy to get sucked into blogging and never want to go anywhere.

    Yay for you!


  6. Oh I am so jealous. I hope you had lots of fun.

  7. What fun, going out with the girls. Kate Gosselin is from my hometown in Pa. I was referred to the producers of the show when they bought and remodeled their first house after the babies were born. Enjoy your night out!

  8. You go girl, get out there and have some fun just for you!

  9. How fantastic! I would love to hear Beth Moore in person. The ladies in my church are starting the Ester bible study at the end of this month. I am really looking forward to it! :o)
    You are so blessed to have so many outstanding ministries at your finger tips! :o)

  10. Hi Susan;

    Thank you for stopping by my blog today! You are soooo lucky to live in Houston....there is sooooo much to do and see! My husband retires in a couple of years and I would love to live in Houston (we've actually talked about it). I commute from Little Rock to Dallas to work and if we lived in Houston I wouldn't have to commute I could just be based in Houston.

    I browsed through your blog and love it! I especially love your house. What part of Houston do you live in?

    Come visit anytime.

  11. Hi Susan, I love your attitude for this year! Lucky for you to live near Beth Moore. Our little group just started her "Stepping Up" DVDs and study. She is excellent, to say the least.

    Thanks for your kind words about my cakes. :)


  12. What great Girls Night Out events! Beth Moore's studies are wonderful. laurie

  13. You go girl! You get out there and find Mr. Right that the Lord has already picked out for ya! I dont live in Houston but my two best friends do and they are going, stinkers~ They asked me but I cant swing Blissdom and a girls night out. I got Mr. Right here and he might feel a bit left out if you know what I mean, hehe. Hope you have a blast!

  14. Good for you - it's too cold to leave the house - 13 below - your 50 degrees posted on your blog has made me jealous! I've tagged you - stop on by to check it out! ~ Robyn

  15. :-)
    FUN to hawve girls night out !!

    I will skip this contest though.. since I am miles away!


  16. You really are blessed to have so many ministries close to you. You definitely should get out & live life. Online life is good but it is in the actual living it that you can find even more enjoyment.

  17. Hello there, Susan's Colorful Life! Thank you for popping in. We baked pies today in Memory Care. I was blown away by how instinctively the women remembered the fine art of fluting the edges of their pie shells. I sang with them, walked them to lunch and look forward to returning. It's been over 1.5 years since my mom died and now it's not so hard to return.

  18. I do wish I lived closer. That sounds like a real girls night out. Have fun!!! Debbie

  19. Thanks for stopping by my blog, I appreciate your nice comments! Have fun on your girl's night out! It sounds like you will have a wonderful time. Kristen

  20. Hi Susan, sounds like a great plan to me, I meet up with a bunch of my girl pals once a month and we have such a laugh. I used to be in Houston about three times a year when I lived in the UK, the company I worked at has their head office there, I love the restaurents, art galleries, shopping etc, etc. I still go occasionally as hubby has meetings there. have fun, Kathy.
    I am still rofl at your ski experiences in Tahoe, were you at Heavenly? lol.

  21. How fun. I would LOVE to meet Kate Gosselin! Nothing beats a good girl's night out, that's for sure!

  22. This fellow Texas gal is so jealous! I travel to houston every couple of months but I won't be there when Kate Gosselin will be there. What a great event!

  23. That sounds like so much fun! We watch Jon & Kate pl;us 8 all the time. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  24. Very cool that you live in Houston and get to attend Beth's weekly study! I just saw from your comment today (1-23) on Smelling Coffee that you went to this Prov. 31 girls night out, and it was wonderful! So glad for you to get to enjoy these things the Lord has placed around you! :-)

  25. Thanks for leaving me a comment.

    I must say I am very jealous (in a good way, of course) that 1. you get to go to Beth's study each week and 2. you went to the girls' night out with Lysa!!! Wow!

    I am enjoying your blog so much... what great taste you have. I love the new curtains at your kitchen sink. I have a red kitchen (with black and white accents) too!

    Blessings from NC!
