|Custom Bunco Sign|
Last night was Bunco night... for those of you not familiar with this classic suburban game, it basically involves dice, money, prizes and hopefully lots of food and frivolity. Mimi played bunco when I was growing up, it was one of the ONLY nights the entire year there was soda and candy in our house... my brother and I used to sneak around the card tables and try to grab the extras. Considering the abundant amount of frivolity going on among the 12 women (who must have desperately needed to get out of the house), either they didn't notice or they didn't care.

My bunco group has been together for 15 years now... we started as a group of mostly young moms or newlyweds, looking to meet our new neighbors and take a night off from mac and cheese and snotty noses. Over the years we've had theme nights, baby showers, movie nights... you name it. We've lost a few members, gained a few, but amazingly we are now back to almost our entire original group. Most of those babies are either grown or nearly there, we've even added a couple of grandkids. Many of us have moved to different neighborhoods and can no longer just walk down the street in search of a rollicking evening of bunco fun.
There were a few years it seemed like it might just fade away... everyone was busy with kids and didn't have quite the same need for a night of freedom... but we've managed to hold on stronger than ever, and I so look forward to reconnecting with my old friends every month over spinach dip and M&M's. And of course, there is always the exciting chance that I will go home a winner with a whopping $15...Mama needs a new pair of shoes!
