The Importance of Girlfriends.

Before one of my friends got married this past weekend, she threw a pajama + champagne party in the bridal suite of her hotel. About 12 of us showed up in matching pajamas with a bottle of our favorite bubbly in hand and walked into a gorgeous room filled with flowers, mini cupcakes, an assortment of popcorn, and seemingly endless palettes of high end makeup. We poured ourselves a glass of champagne, toasted to the bride-to-be...and then had the time of our lives. 

We blasted Ying Yang Twins and Taylor Swift and danced the night away, all from the comfort of our stretchy pants. We ordered from Uber Eats and gabbed about life, followed by some more dancing and more champagne. Next thing we knew, the clock struck 1 a.m. and we'd hardly even noticed. We were having that much fun.

I got to thinking how easy it is for us to forget to schedule that kind of time with our girlfriends. I have my live-in boyfriend, my friends have their husbands or significant others, we all have our separate lives and different groups of friends. We just get so busy with school, work, and obligations that we want to spend most of our extra time with our S.O.'s and that's totally okay (preaching to the choir over here!).

Having said that, I challenge you to make the time. Send your men out for a night on the town and have a slumber party with a group of your girlfriends, or even just one. You don't necessarily need a fancy hotel suite and 17 different kinds of snacks. Maybe a cheap bottle of Barefoot and Club crackers with cheese is your style, or hot chocolate with break'n'bake cookies. Turn on your favorite throwback music, light candles, take some funny pictures, do each other's makeup and talk about life and love and all the things. Don't get me wrong, boyfriends and husbands and the like are great and all...but I truly value each and every one of my girlfriends and spending quality time with them is the best.

What's your favorite way to hang with your girlfriends?
