New Exciting Change to Go Long! Go Green!

As many of you know, my husband and I LOVE playing games!!  LOVE LOVE LOVE it!  Over the past year we have spent lots of time working together to find fun new games to play with friends to deepen our relationships!  When you have young kids and a limited income, you have to find creative ways to spend quality time with friends to maintain your relationships!

When Sophia was 15 months old, we started our FRIEND GAME NIGHTS.  We usually head to a friend's house near bedtime, let her play with their kids for a little bit, then put her to sleep in the pack n play (now a bed) in a bedroom.  We are then free to play games all evening/night long with our friends while she maintains her "normal" schedule.  We don't have to rush back to get the babysitter home.  After game night is over, we pack up, and all head home.  She transfers awesome back into her own bed!!

Honestly, this finding has revolutionized our once non-existent social life!  We can't afford to have a babysitter each time we want to see friends.  We have worked it out that we have a fun night with friends while our kids sleep!!  Of course dessert of some sort is always involved.  You can't have a game night without food, RIGHT?

Since we have really gotten into games, we wanted to share some of the best ones with our favorite followers here at Go Long! Go Green!!

My husband and I will be writing reviews and/or hosting giveaways for games that we enjoy playing together and during our game nights!!

Stay tuned ... our first one is written and ready to be published!

Oooh, maybe I will learn about some new, fun games! We love hosting game nights with our friends too, or going to their houses for games. Times have changed since our 20's, huh? :)
