As much fun as it is to vacation with our kids, sometimes moms really need to let loose without having to worry about things like bedtime, meals, and ... having to tend to children in the morning with a raging hangover. That's why Maci Bookout has to be super-psyched to be going on a cruise to Mexico with her girlfriends to indulge in a little bit of fun in the sun for the weekend.
(I know. I'm totally jealous too.)
She shared this photo on Instagram and captioned it with, "... taking off on the elation ... headed to mexico for the weekend with my childhood sisters. See y'all next week!"
Whoa. A Carnival cruise, huh? Sounds like a total blast, and based on this pic, Maci and her friends are more than ready to throw caution to the wind and let their hair down. (And apparently Maci is channeling Miley Cyrus or something.)
Man. I'm sure they'll get into all sorts of (innocent) trouble while sailing the seas. Maci will come back recharged, relaxed, and refreshed -- which is something you just can't put a price on as a mom.
As much as we adore our kids, there's something to be said for spending time away with people who knew you before you became a parent. Old friends are definitely good for the soul -- and it looks like Maci is a very lucky gal to have quite a few of them in her circle.
Let's hope she has an awesome vacation complete with plenty of laughs and of course -- smooth seas!
How often do you take girls' trips?
