I am a hugeParks and Recreation fan! I could watch that show all day long even though I’ve seen all the episodes several times before, it’s just that funny! For those of you who have not seen this show, the main character, Leslie, comes up with a fun day called “Galentine’s Day” on February 13th to celebrate her female friends! And she has the cutest party for them! You have to see that episode!! Anyways that’s a little background on how Galentine’s Day became a real day!
Here’s five fun ideas to celebrate with your girlfriends this on Galentine’s Day!
Waffle party!! Leslie is obsessed with waffles, so this one should be no surprise! Bonus points if they are heart shaped!!
Have a Valentine’s Day card making party!! Go completely elementary school style! Get lots of construction paper, glitter, markers, stickers…etc and get creative!
Host a Fancy Black Tie Party!! Get completely decked out with your girlfriends! Who needs a man to dress up for?? I think it’s more fun to dress up with the girls anyways because they appreciate what you’re wearing & understand how long it took to contour your face!!
Girls Weekend Road Trip!! Go somewhere fun where you have never been before and enjoy time away with your besties!! And maybe order some room service??
Gather your girlfriends, Get in your cozy pajamas, Order pizza, have lots of Valentine’s Day candy and have a Parks and Recreation marathon on the couch!!

My Honest Thoughts from This After Party Sale:
In the past this sale has made me SO mad! It would take me hours to enter the site, the wait in line was crazy long, the website was so slow and things would sell out as I was putting them in my cart.. So if I am being honest with you guys, I almost said, “nope…not even going to try to shop this sale…it’s not worth the headache.”
But here’s what happened today..
I went to the Lilly website around noon, had a 5 minute wait, the website was running at a normal speed and checking out was a breeze !! BEST SALE THEY HAVE EVER DONE! Thank You Lilly for finally fixing this sale and making the experience a good one! So that is why I decided to do a blog post for you guys because I want you to give shopping the AFTER PARTYanother chance because I did and I am so excited for my purchase! But you do need to be patient with the shipping! It could take 3 weeks for your order to arrive which in my opinion is awesome because it’s calling for snow today in Charlotte…so getting summer dresses and rompers in 3 weeks is no biggie because I can’t wear them for awhile anyways! AND it gives me a chance to get my legs back in shape for these dresses! So honestly I couldn’t be happier with Lilly today!!
So do yourself a favor and go shop the sale and buy a dress that can motivate you to workout and get ready for the summer!!
