Can’t wait to see you there!

Get ready for THE Girls Night Out of the season! You’re officially invited to join us when we go to the Walton Arts Center to see Mamma Mia on Thursday, February 11, 2016. We’ve got a ticket discount plus a block of seats reserved so we can sit together. Want to come? We’d LOVE for you to be there. In fact, this week we’re giving away FOUR tickets to the show, so throw your name in the online hat to win them. (Two ladies will win 2 tickets each.)

(The upstairs room will be reserved for the ladies of nwaMotherlode!) Show up anytime between 5 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. to enjoy a few light appetizers, sodas or a glass of wine on us before we head over to the theater in time for the curtain to go up.

(The gift cards will hook you up with some fun shopping at local boutiques, restaurant meals and even a pair of tickets for an upcoming show at Walton Arts Center.) Anyone at the pre-show Happy Hour can throw their name in the hat to win the gift cards and we’ll give them out that night.

ABOUT THE SHOW: A few years ago, one of my friends called and told me I had to go to this show with her because it’s so perfect for a Girls Night Out. (Guys love this show, too, but it’s more fun to see this one with other women because the story line revolves around three amazing girlfriends. And, of course, the star of the show is also a mama. It’s a love story but it’s also hilariously funny.)

I absolutely LOVED the show and was so glad my friend invited me. I laughed — hard. And the music is just so much fun. The show includes ABBA songs like “Take a Chance on Me,” “S.O.S.,” and “Souper Trouper.” It’s like a two-hour party, it’ll be really hard not to stand up in your seat and put your hands in the air when they start playing the song “Dancing Queen.” This musical has been called “the ultimate feel-good show” and people see it over and over again.

  1. A GNO is a great way to recharge and have time for yourself. All mamas know that a happy mama means a happy family and a GNO is the perfect way to help keep your sanity!

  2. GNO’s are always so refreshing. Helps remind me that I am my own person…….not just a mom, not just a sister, not just a wife. It’s important to reconnect with yourself!

  3. Its always so fun to get the girls together and just laugh out loud! Its refreshing to get out and forget about all the pesky chores and enjoy some time with friends.

  4. I love everything about a girl’s night … the laughs, the fun, the time away from my kids to recharge! It’s all great! And I would love to win this giveaway.

  5. I love that I can just be my (mostly) carefree self without the responsibility of answering to one of my children’s needs/wants at the time. Their needs are being met by Grandma, Grandpa or Daddy. I get to be a little silly myself!

  6. The best thing about girls night is time laughing and relaxing with besties! This would be an awesome GNO!

  7. I’m a single father, which makes me a part time mom. Rather than girls night for me this would be about taking my daughter out for “date night.” Figured out that if she has amazing dates with dad, she will have higher expectations as a young woman some day.

  8. Just getting away for the evening with special friends is what it is all about!!! And of course there will be lots of laughing going on!!!!

  9. All the fun and laughs and some adult time away from the hustle and bustle of the everyday life of mom and wife duties.

  10. I never get a girls night out! I’d love hi spend some time with my besties and get a much needed momma break. Laughing, wine and girlfriend chatter!!

  11. I love spending time with my best gal pal, trading hilarious stories and offering a compassionate shoulder when needed.

  12. February 1st is my birthday. This would be a perfect night to have fun with my girlfriend. Would love to win. Eeekkkk.

  13. I am not sure I belong in this group. I am retired and 70yrs old. Most of my girlfriends are my age and don’t go out much,. I still like to have fun when we do get together. Not very often. I think this group is much younger then I, but I am a mother and grandmother. Are there any women my age that go to these GIRLS NIGHT OUT events?

  14. The laughter is always the best part of girls night out! My oldest granddaughter and I love to do a girls night out date, and as she will be celebrating her 13th birthday this week, I know a Nena and Raine girls night out to Mama Mia would be a blast!

  15. I am an “old mama” and work with kids all day, so a Girl’s Night Out gives me that little break to be able to let my hair down and just laugh and not have to be serious. It refreshes the mind.

  16. I love “girls nights out” with my daughters as we create the BEST memories!!!! (laughter for YEARS to come!!!) I did not really have that with my own mom….and I cherish those times with my 3 daughters!!!! 🙂

  17. I love a Girls Night Out because it’s so fun to get away and sit and not have to worry about anyone but yourself for a night 😉

  18. Laughs and good stories. Just knowing that others are going through the same issues you are–someone that understands there is a challenge to work/life balance. Someone that understands about housework, laundry, kids, cooking, etc…all while holding down a 9-5!

  19. Getting together with a friend or friends is the best because we can catch up and have fun for a night, just us! It’s reassuring and encouraging to get to be with other mamas and friends for an evening out and just enjoy myself and the company.

  20. Getting together with friends to catch up and have fun together is the best! It helps me feel encouraged in all my roles in life.

  21. I have not had a girl’s night in a very long time. Girl’s night is a great time to let loose, relax and laugh.

  22. I’m so pumped about a girls night out with my best friend/ sister is love to win tickets we need some fun, big girl time to get the giggles going and let our hair down! Pick me!!!!!

  23. Mamma Mia is my favorite musical and i have great friends to share the experience with!! Can’t wait to go.

  24. I can honestly say i have never had a “Girls Night out and i am 55 years old. Would be great

  25. Always love a good girl’s night out and leaving responsibility at home for the night!

  26. It makes for a great mother daughter day out for my daughter now that we survived teenage hood and are friends

  27. Ladies night out gives me an opportunity to reconnect with great friends and recharge. What better way to reconnect than to see Mama Mia with my wonderful support system!

  28. I, literally, can not remember my last girls night out. And I love a good musical!

  29. The laughter is the BEST part!!!!
    I follow Twitter & Facebook. And I already am a newsletter subscriber!!

  30. would love to take my mom who just finished chemo treatments and needs night out! She loves MAMA MIA . and she listens to the soundtrack often!!

  31. It’s so great to return home fresh and rejuvenated!

    I follow on Pinterest and Twitter too!

  32. My favorite thing about girls night is getting out of the house away from kids and hubby, not having to cook, and being cooked for and waited on!!
