So this weekend, one of my besties from college was flown out by her husband for a girls’ weekend. You heard that right. Her husband wins some MAJOR brownie points for setting up a surprise weekend with her girls. Of course, flying her from Phoenix to Chicago in the middle of winter…well brownie points and brilliance aren’t always the same, right? (I’m totally joking. Sort of. He’s a super sweet guy who just wanted her lady to get away from the hustle and bustle of working mom life. And the warmth.) But she’s still a Midwest girl at heart, so when we picked her up at midnight last night and she was standing outside wearing a tee shirt? I was a little proud. And not super surprised.
So obviously, we have NO clue what we’re going to do with all this lovely time, but I did take a day off work. So this is joyful for everyone. But, since we’re older and not the crazy drunk girls we used to be, I’m more than happy to suggest a girls’ night in.
Everything you need for a girls’ night in
Wine? I’ve got LOTS.
Snacks? Did someone say meat and cheese? Because that sounds like a good time to me.
Chocolate? Okay, I know it’s stereotypical for girls and chocolate…but come on. Chocolate. Plus Valentine’s Day candy is on serious clearance right now. Chocolate roulette, anyone?
Chick flicks? Enter Netflix.
Some of my favorite rom coms and other chick flicks are available for streaming on Netflix, so the fact that we don’t have a DVD player to pop in some serious girly movies? no biggie.
These are just a few of picks, but I’ll obviously let the other ladies have a go at the long and lovely list of fan favorites.
What movies would you watch with your friends? Are you down with the romantic comedies or do you prefer serious dramas? Or Disney movies? What’s on your Netflix to-watch list?
While this is not a sponsored post, Netflix hooked me up with a year’s subscription and a device on which to watch my stories. But I was a Netflix subscriber long before joining the Stream Team. So there’s that.
Meat on a Friday in Lent?? Tsk tsk….
The meat was not from Friday, MOM.
