Don’t get me wrong, boys are great. I love the boyfriend with all my heart, but sometimes he just can’t replace a girlfriend when you need fashion advice, words of wisdom, or want to rant about another girl.
Sometimes you just need a night in with your girls!
Here are a few conversations I’ve had with the boyfriend over the last few weeks that are clear signs I need to get my “squad” together asap (as Tay Tay would do) for an evening of drinks, gossip, and fun:
Me: “Should I paint my nails Essie color fruit sangria or knockout pout?”
The boyfriend: “Who names these things?”
Me: “Will you please watch The Intern with me? It’s such a cute story line and Robert De Niro looks so adorable in it!”
The boyfriend: “You are joking, right? Please tell me you’re joking… Do you want to watch Mad Max instead?”
Me: “Mad Max?? Please tell ME you’re joking!”
Me: “Should I try using a wand on my hair tonight instead of a straightener?”
The boyfriend: What’s a wand?
Me: “OMG I’ve been dying to try that new vegetarian restaurant that opened up down the street…”
The boyfriend: “What kind of restaurant doesn’t serve meat? I would be starving!”
Me: “So that’s a no?”
So what’s a girl to do in a situation like this?
One answer: Ditch the boyfriend for a night and plan a girls night in! Order pizza, pour multiple rounds of Moscow mules, and gab the night away :) That sounds like just what the doctor ordered.
- 2 ounces vodka
- 5 ounces ginger beer
- 1 ounces cranberry juice
- Splash of lime juice
- Fresh cranberries
- Rosemary sprig
- Mix vodka, ginger beer, cranberry juice, and lime juice together in a copper mug.
- Top with ice, cranberries, and rosemary.
- Sip and smile!
Anyone else in dire need of a girls night like I am? You can find me at my apartment sipping on a homemade Moscow Mule, painting my nails Essie knockout pout, eating handfuls of Swedish Fish, and chatting about the Golden Globe’s best-dressed :) You in?
