Moms Have More Fun!

This past weekend, I celebrated my 27th birthday in true Mommy Delicious fashion.

I dropped off my kid, grabbed a few friends, and headed to the Asian fusion restaurant, Buddakan in the Meatpacking District. Most popularly noted for a scene in the Sex And The City Movie where Carrie and Big hosted their rehearsal dinner, Buddakan is so friggin' sexy. The ambiance and energy is simply mesmerizing!





The restaurant has a lounge area where we sipped cocktails while waiting for our table. The drinks were good -- and strong! -- and the food was delish!


After my night out, I've come to the conclusion that it's official: Moms have more fun!

Here's why: As Moms, we have  SO MUCH on our already full plates that when we get out... We. Get. Out. And we go ALL out! You know what I'm talking about! Margaritas, mini-dresses, cocktails, stilettos, dinner, dancing, desserts and jokes galore.... we know how to work it! Owwsshhh!

My fashion choices for that night was also quite delicious. After a short debate, I settled on this sweet, sexy, and glam mini-dress from Bebe's... slightly edgy, but so chic!


And the Steve Madden shoes... let's just say that I'm in love!


They are modeled after the Christian Louboutin's that I saw on Lindsay Lohan a few months ago. {Are we still calling her Lindsay or LiLo or LL? I can't keep up anymore!} She wore 'em when she was sentenced to the slammer and shame, shame, shame... that's a horrible way to treat great shoes!

My shoes aren't going to the slammer... just a super sexy night out with some of my fave peeps! I love a good heel. Really, the higher, the better so these 5.5 inches of pure glam was perfection! POW!


Happy birthday to me!

And cheers for good times, as usual.


What are some things you do to show that Moms have more fun?

  22. Happy Belated Birthday!! Yes moms do have more fun. I do so by wearing heels every day, playing dress up with makeup and clothes, overnight weekends with my girls (3 out of the 4 are moms)and house parties with desserts and adult beverages.

  23. Happy belated birthday! You were WERKING that dress! I agree with your point that moms have more fun; we relish it more and it's more of a big deal because we have fewer opportunities to really go all out. So cheers to you for taking advantage!
