I’m all about trying to find fun things to do with friends. As a mom of 5 – when I go out, I need to make sure I’m having a FUN time. The time I actually get to head out and enjoy myself without kids or even my husband it’s that often. So when I do? Yes! I need it to be fun and worth the time! I know that there are hundreds and hundreds of things you can do with friends, but I thought it would be fun to create a list of a bunch of things to do! Make it easy on us all!
Fun Things to Do with your Friends
I love a day with the GIRLS! 🙂 As I’ve gotten older, time with my friends is better spent when it’s some place other than a night club. Though it’s fun to go and let loose sometimes, I prefer a little bit more special time — you know, without pumping musics and lots of drinking! I think it’s so important for women to come together and do things together. When we get older we lose a little bit of our “old” selves and it’s a sad thing. It’s extremely important to make sure you’re doing what you can to make yourself happy. I’ve always said that laughing with my girlfriends having fun with girlfriends is one of the best things in the world! It’s medicine for the soul!
What if I told you I came up with 70 Fun Things to Do with your Friends!? Would you believe me? I’m telling you, the list was easy to make… but it’s one of those things you want to stick with! You don’t want to get excited about it and then walk away. You want to make sure you have this list down and are super duper excited to go with it!
Here are 70 Things to Do with your Girlfriends that don’t involve going to a CLUB! I mean – who needs a club? Come on! That’s an easy thing to do. Let’s think outside of the box!!! I mean – who can go to a club when they’re a mom? LOL! I know… I know… it’s all about letting loose and having some fun, but clubbing is NOT my scene. I want to do things that are fun and exciting with my girlfriends. I don’t want to constantly be wondering – is there anything fun to do?? YES!!! You just need to find it and come up with some awesome ideas!!
