I'm a stay at home mom to two beautiful daughters, AJ and Amelia. We also have a 6 year old beagle named Abby who is as dumb as a box of rocks.

Book Club

Yesterday AJ and I hopped in the car and headed down to post. It was the first time I have actually driven around on base and it was kind of fun to explore a little bit. We were headed to the gift shop run by the wives club to meet a few people from the area and we found it!

While we were there, the ladies invited me to their book club meeting they were having last night. I informed asked D and got the go-ahead to head out! So last night I met up with about 10 ladies at IHOP to talk about a book I haven't read the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. ;) Okay, there was some talk about the book, too!

Before you go thinking that I'm super brave to walk into a group of 10 strangers, I should let you know that several of the ladies there were people that I know from an Internet wives group I've been part of for a while. Anyway, I had so much fun! It was great to meet lots of people I've been emailing with for a few years and also to meet others as well! All of the ladies were so friendly and I felt like I fit in with them, which is nice. This particular group also does a Mexican night every so often in addition to the book club, so I'm hoping that hanging with this group will be a regular thing for me.

Its so nice to have time to myself and be able to get out of the house without AJ for a while. Sure, I go run errands on the weekend while D stays home with AJ, but this was actual ME time where I wasn't trying to get anything done and get home. I got to just sit, gossip about reality TV and laugh with {new} friends!

I am also excited to have a book to read for the next book club meeting! Its part of a series and after reading the blurb, I'm not sure how much I'll like it, but the last time I read a series (ahem, Twilight) I didn't think I'd like it either and I ended up enjoying it.

What do you do to meet new people when you move? Do you belong to any book clubs or other groups?


  1. I look forward to Book Club every month! And we rarely talk about the's just a chance to drink sweet tea and for the moms in the group to get some time for themselves :)

  2. I'll have to look for a book club when we move to Ft. Lewis this Fall. I miss having a group of girlfriends to talk with!

  3. I just weaseled my way into a local book club. My first day will be in a couple of weeks - I'm stupid excited about it.

  4. So glad you came! I hadn't been to IHOP in so long I'm ready to go back. Just wait for The Sly Fox next month, it's seriously my favorite place around here!


I'd love to know what you think...
