"It is a sociological fact that women need women. We need deep and satisfying and loyal friendships with each other."
Such a beautiful quote from a beautiful person, and I totally agree. Women need other women. And that's why it's so important to make it a priority to spend time with your girlfriends.
Going out to dinner is definitely a good thing to do with friends, but here's a list of 10 other fun ideas. (And yes, my brain is working in lists this week; see Monday's post here and Wednesday's post here.)
1. Favorite Things:
Everyone brings their favorite thing (beauty product, recipe, gadget, etc.) to share with the group. It's interesting to find out what others love using, and will give you new things to try!
When is the last time you went bowling? It's so fun, and will give friends a chance to chat and make memories. Raleigh has an upscale bowling place called Sparians that is really nice.
3. Nail/Movie Night:
Bring your nail polish and paint each other's nails while watching a fun movie. I was able to get together with a great group of girls a few weeks ago, (see my cute nails here), and it was so awesome to laugh, talk, and get my nails all fancy.
4. Recipe Night:
Decide on a specific ingredient or type of dish (dessert, main dish, side), and have everyone bring over the dish and the recipe to share. It's a great way to eat yummy food, and will send everyone home with a new recipe.
5. Netflix Night:
Pick a series that no one has seen before, and start from the beginning. It might take a couple of months, but it would be fun to watch a series with a group of friends.
6. Book Club:
I love being around other book lovers. I always want to talk about my favorite books with other people, so what a great way to do that with a book club.
7. Craft Night:
Take care of those Pinterest ideas, and have a girls' craft night. Work on the same project, or bring supplies to work on an individual project. This would be especially fun with the holidays coming up. There's so many fun fall projects already floating around...how cute is this?
8. Fitness Class:
Get a group together for a fitness class you've been wanting to try or that you love already. I've been wanting to try hot yoga for a while...might be time to get a group together!
9. Themed Party:
Decide on a cute theme that everyone is excited about (a tv show, an awards show, a holiday, or a season) and plan a party/dinner around it!
10. Get a Treat:
I'm always up for dessert. Find new places with a yummy dessert menu and get a group together to try it out.
What are you favorite things to do for a girls' night?
I hope you have a fantastic weekend!!
