What is Galentine's day? It's only the best day ever!
If you were unaware Galentine's day came from Season 2 Episode 16 of one of my favorite shows to watch during down time or when I'm writing .
The GOAT: Parks and Recreation.
In the show on Galentine's Day Leslie gives all the girls at the table ridiculously extra gifts and a 5,000 word essay to each of them telling them how amazing they are. They eat waffles and drink what I assume are mimosas. The kind of extra I strive to be.
So I held my own mini Galentine's Day. Here is what I needed to make it happen.
Decorate a bit!
Seriously how can this be a true celebration without decorations. I bought two dozen roses from Trader Joe's. (First of all ,who knew about his secret place where everything is inexpensive). I bought roses in pink & in lilac because I love a good cliche. I didn't buy red roses because I figure I would let the guys have that.
Goody Bags for your Gals!
So I invited two blogger babes of mine out and even thought its was freezing they obliged. So of course I had to get them some goodies. No where near as grandiose as Leslie but still if you are going to have a Galentine's Day you have to give gifts. I included Desk name plates, and some stationary because I love stationary!
No Thirst Allowed
I brought wine because I personally love a smidge of alcohol with every get together to loosen everyone up. So I brought in some Yellow Tail Chardonnay to toast to. Next time I will definitely bring Champagne by Clicquot what better way to celebrate an girl's day than with champagne from a house ran by a woman.

As we get older I think it's wild important to make time for your friends, otherwise you can forget you're not alone out here. I asked the girls a couple of questions about themselves and their own girlfriends.
