Girlfriend time is important time. If you’re like me you don’t get nearly enough of it. Sadly my best friends live sort of far away but when we do get together we soak up our time together. This week me and my friends are talking about what our ideal girls’ day or night out looks like. I’d love to hear the fun things you do with your girlfriends too!
Girls Night is a necessity! I am in a small group through our church called Girls Night Out (great name right?) and we meet every week. I look forward to it!! We meet for a couple hours and talk, hang out, eat dinner, sometimes do a Pinterest inspired project. I try to meet my best friend for lunch or manicures at least once a month. Sometimes we go longer. But we talk everyday! I think we need to make some time for our friends not only for them, but for ourselves too!
My ideal girls night out would consist of a good chick flick, dinner at my fave spot – Texas Roadhouse, and maybe even an adult drink or two. I NEVER get those, darn it!! I’m pretty easy to please. A fun night IN with the girls would probably be spent watching a movie, some bad for us snacks and drinks and a DIY mani/pedi!

My how times have changed. I really would have answered this so differently 15 years ago! Now my ideal girls’ day out would be coffee and breakfast in a cute little coffee shop, followed by some sort of spa day. We need manicures and pedicures in there too. They don’t happen nearly often enough. After that, some shopping and an early evening chick flick at the theater would be fantastic! Now who wants to go with me?
My ideal GNO/GNI revolves around great food and great conversation, not necessarily in that order! It doesn’t happen often enough. Now that Sam is a little older I feel like I can take more “me” time so it’s bumped up on my priority list.
