I hadn’t been to Girls’ Night Out since my first Holiday Galleria experience in 2011. We weren’t volunteers this time so I actually got to experience it for real — complete with waiting in the long line to get in and being one of the first 250 people there so that we can get goodie bags.
Brian went with me and was #13. I had to pay for an extra ticket so he could go, but that meant I got an extra goodie bag also. LOL.
The firefighters are always one of the highlights of GNO. Carly’s friend Judd wasn’t there this year. There were lots of familiar faces though — Kim, Ariana, and Todd, just to name a few.
Speaking of familiar faces, I also ran into some fellow Zumba instructors.
Regina (left), who I met in person for the first time, and Gina (right). Gina is one of the instructors who pioneered Zumba in Wichita. She was teaching Zumba well before it became available in our local gyms.
April and I had already had a few margaritas at this point.
The food (except for chips and salsa) ran out pretty early in the evening but the margaritas continued to flow freely. I probably would have stayed with the other girls but Brian was getting antsy. I will definitely go again next year but I may leave Brian at home the next time around. LOL. Until next year!
P.S. If you are interested in shopping, Holiday Galleria is a four-day shopping event that will continue through Sunday. Go check it out!
