Margaritas! oh yeah and book club




Friday night the book club hit up Harrisburg for some tacos and margaritas! Books, happy hour margarita pitchers and $1 tacos, what more could a girl ask for? Our book for the month(s) of May and June (May's meeting was postponed) was Bossypants by Tina Fey. I believe 7 out of the 8 members finished the book so it was the most successful book to date. All of our other books selections have sucked big time! Only five of the members could make it to our meeting (and only four are pictured) but it was a great time.

Some people (husbands!) have their panties in a bunch saying this "book club" is an excuse to go out and have a good time (without them). Let's face the facts.... that is exactly what it is. Yes we read books (some of us), yes we do talk about the book (for 10 minutes, maybe), yes we love our husbands/boyfriends/whatever you want to call them, but most of all yes it is a great excuse to meet up with the ladies for margaritas and tacos. Really, I don't need an excuse to ditch the husband and go and grab a drink with some chicks because I do what I want anyways, but this group of women is a fun combination and they normally wouldn't all come together on the regular. So let us have fun at our book club and get over it.

This month we will be reading and discussing The Hunger Games. Get ready.

  2. Awesome time! Great bunch of peeps. Thanks for starting the book club - even though I haven't 100% read a book yet, I'm on a roll this month.

  3. @Chrissy I loved the Hunger Games! I read it a head of the book club schedule since our May meeting was postponed. I just finished Catching Fire the 2nd book in the series and loved it also!
