Want To Have Fun? Need a break? Throw A Girls’/Moms’ Night-IN Party!

Fun and Fitness PartyHouse Party, recently selected me to host a pretty awesome party for my friends.  Saturday night was “party night” and we got to review Your Shape, a new Wii fitness game, and try JELLO Mousse, a wonderful new low-calorie treat!

We laughed ourselves silly over the game.  Seriously.  Not a one of us could do the exercises correctly.  But no matter!  It was probably more fun that way!  (They also sent us Just Dance, but we ran out of time before we could try it.)

The Mousse, however, was something we could all do quite well!  Are you kidding?  Eat chocolate?  Lol!  We actually each built our own parfait creations alternating different kinds of Mousse with whipped cream.

We had such a good time!  I’m wondering why it took a company sponsor to get us together!  We decided right then and there that we needed to do this much more often.

So this week, I’m planning to share some tips and ideas for you to throw your own inexpensive party.  We moms all need refueling and refreshing and a break from the routine.  So, why not make it happen???

The first thing to do is set a date.  If you don’t, it’s just not going to happen.  Don’t even worry about what you will do, yet.  Women could do nothing but sit and talk and have a wonderful time.  We’re tying our next one into Valentines somehow.

Second, choose two homes from among your friends.  One where the moms can get together, and another where the guys and kids can retreat to.  For us, we chose two homes very nearby so that the guys could drop off their wives and then continue on with the rest of the troops to their “hangout” place.

It worked wonderfully!  We simply sent along plenty of treats and movies to their “hangout” and they had a blast!

And it truly freed us up to enjoy ourselves without worrying about our families!

So, call some friends and set a date.  The planning can come later.  :)

How fun! I'd so have been there eating all your mousse while you played the Wii! LOL.

What fun! Those Wii games are the best when playing together and the mousse looks good!
