Girls Night Out! (Friend Therapy)

I have not had a proper weekend to myself to jst chill out in the past month! if i wasn't travelling, i was actively occupied with work or something else! I decided to take the bull by the horns and give myself a break before i break down. I buzzed my girlfriends on Thursday evening to find out their plans for the weekend,. I had a friend who came into town and was gonna be spending Friday night at my place, i love sleepovers! (slumber parties or whatever u wanna call it), you can blame it on the active lil child dwelling happily inside me :D Anyways they were all less busy this weekend so we planned a karoke outing for Saturday and Sunday night, i know right?! you're thinking these gals must really love singing o and must have angelic voices..lol!we actually don't o and our voices are far from angelic although not terrible either. 
This was definitely the therapy i needed to get outta my feeling old corner and it seems i was not the only one who had drifted into this corner. One thing i've learnt on life is not to abandon your friends when you are in a relationship or feeling deserted, reach out to them 'cos they may need you and vice versa. 
Na so 3 of us comot on Saturday night to Zanzibar (Maitama Amusement Park) after we rendezvoused at my place, chatted a lil and caught up on what had been happening in our individual lives, we had loads of fun as we picked songs as we sang our hearts away trying to mimic the artists as best as we could, although some of the effort resulted in banshee-like shrills, coughs and at some point silence from our inability to meet up the high notes of the songs. It was even more fun 'cos a group of guys that sat opposite us decided to be our back up singers and we helped them out also, sadly our scores did not rise above 74points (i think). Thriller by Micheal Jackson was he song that made the night! We left there around 11pm (we really had no idea time had sped past like that), got sharwama and all headed for round 2 of sleepover at my place (which consisted of jisting till we dozed off).
and then there were 5 awaiting 1. b4 we went wild ;)
Sunday night-we called up our newly married friend if she could make it out with us and luckily she could!!!it was even way more fun as it was 6 of us this time around. We met up @Sofa Lounge (Wuse 2), settled in ordered our drinks, picked our songs as we sang along with others who had already picked their song. Bottom belle by Omawumi made the night!! (even though they fought me when i was picking it o!)  I had a swell swell time, words can't even describe it, made me miss my bestie and i can't wait to hang out with her (though we are separated by oceans, where there is a will, there's a way, a visa and a plane :D). We left for our seperate homes around 11:00pm and i have to say i was refreshed, had a new glow and ready for the week.
