You don’t have to wait for a special occasion, like a bridal shower or bachelorette party to enjoy some time out with the girls. When the man in our life isn’t quite entertained by one of your interests, why not find a girlfriend(s) with that common interest? I know of four friends that started taking weekend vacations together when they were all single. Even through many changes in their lives, they never got away from this tradition. Today many years later, they still get together one weekend a year.
Take a walk – Meet at a park, garden or even the mall, then enjoy the walk and catching up on lost time.
Stroll around an art show – Many towns have a local art show. Grab a friend and enjoy looking around.
Enroll in a class – Learn to quilt, draw, make jewelry, or a new cooking technique together. You can even enjoy making some birthday or Christmas gifts together.
Listen to music – Many restaurants have a band or some live music each week or month.
Volunteer – Whether you help with a local food drive or your child’s school field trip, it can be fun with a friend. Many charities need your help now more than ever. Many worthy causes can also use your quilting, knitting, or crochet skills. It’s always more enjoyable to do with a friend.
Movie night – Rent a movie, make some popcorn, and enjoy that “chick flick” that the husband or boyfriend would rather not watch. Don’t forget some comfortable fuzzy slippers. If you live is separate cities, enjoy the movie at home while you chat on the phone with each other.
Girls night in – Invite friends over to play board games, sing along with the radio and enjoy acting silly.
