I just adore black and white stripes…. A restaurant that serves a Black and white stripe straw is a winner in my book! Sometimes it really is just the small things!
Last weekend we had a impromptu girl’s weekend at home! Not planned in anyway and I sometimes feel that’s the best kind! My sister Tiana was in town on business for Sundance and we realized her Friday night and Saturday were free. I called two of my other girlfriends and said “come over for a simple dinner & drinks” they said they’d love too! (they happen to be kid free!) YAY! No planning went into it at all. I used what I had at home, Quiche, soup and some rolls. Super easy and no extra fuss. We even said “wear something cozy and bring a overnight bag just in case!” This led to a fun night of good talks, laughter and even a few good tears with staying up until 1am that did lead to a sleep over.
We woke up on Saturday to Sharon making scone’s a mix that she brought from her home served with yummy jam. Delicious! We stayed in our Pj’s being lazy ALL day on the couch… watching Hallmark channel.. Tried out some home beauty treatments (full treatment steps here) then we made a quick & easy dinner and planned our Sunday in Park city. Still in our Pj’s…
Our Sunday’s plans really weren’t all that big…A little shopping, (Park city’s Tjmax has great finds) My sister said we should all buy these, (Which of course we’re going to take her beauty advise and all bought a set!) cafe’ sitting with people watching, a photo shoot, shopping main street and finding a place we haven’t tried YET to eat! (WINK) we love to head over to Park city a lot for a change of scenery. My Sister had appointments in the morning so she had to meet us just a touch later. With no set schedule we just rolled with how the day took shape. When you have a small group 2-4 it’s easy to just roll with the punches and not set a schedule.
The girlfriend bond is so important and really special when you can share your heart with no judgement. I am lucky to have a great group of girls that truly are a blessing in my life and I love it when we can have a lunch, a movie night or even a quick drink on the deck. Having a whole weekend is rare and I think really important for our girl bonding and that little break from family life. I think it helps us to be better moms and wife’s.
Here’s my 5 Things to do for the easy perfect girl’s weekend!
- Don’t plan to much…. Makes for no stress and easy weekend.
- Use food from your pantry, maybe have a girlfriend bring something she has on hand.
- Plan to stay in you pj’s and be lazy for 1 whole day.
- Drag out your mask’s, facial creams and manicure stuff.
- Have an outing, a hike, a day trip or a meal out.
Doing these 5 things will insure you have a relaxing, well rounded weekend with the girl’s.
A much needed weekend with just the girl’s was just what I needed to relax, refocus and share stories to catch up. The perfect amount of laziness and girl time.
If you you haven’t had a day or weekend with just the girls, you really need to treat yourself.

*I wish I would have taken more photo’s over the weekend. (you would have liked our pj’s and face masks) To be honest I didn’t think I was going to write about it, then I realized it’s a great topic. Who doesn’t want affordable idea’s to do something fun with the girlfriends?
