Galentine's Day 2018

"What's Galentine's Day? Oh it's only the best day of the year!"
Leslie Knope is absolutely right. I may possibly love Galentine's Day more than Christmas -I'm not positive, but I just might. Galentine's Day is a day set aside for ladies to celebrate their favorite ladies.

A group of my friends and I celebrated this most glorious of holidays over the weekend. I hosted the festivities this year. Everyone else brought food. It was so great. It's our fourth Galentine's Day celebrating this group of ladies! And our group grows in number each year! I hope we never stop.

Yes, the above two paragraphs are copy/pasted from my Galentine's Day post from last year. And Galentine's Day happened in February. At least I finally got this post up! Let's just take a minute and celebrate that, ok? Thank you. Now, on to the goods...

The theme for this year's festivities was "love you like a love song" and we tied music into the party wherever possible. Everyone brought a song for us to listen to from their current favorite lady singer(s). These ladies did not disappoint. So much good music. Here is a little sampling of what was shared:
Jill Andrews -Total Eclipse of This Heart (now obsessed with this cover)
Jenny Lewis -everything she had ever performed
Haim -I Want You Back
Ellie Gouding -The Writer
Dolly Parton
Girl Pool -Cut Your Bangs
Bearded Lady from The Greatest Showman -This Is Me (Performed live by Mary wearing a beard!)
Pink -apparently she's all our guilty pleasure
Sylvia -Nobody
Jewel -You Were Meant For Me (just try not to sing along)
Shania Twain -You know what song we busted out

After we chowed down on all the delicious food everyone brought, we learned a hip hop dance from Alyssa. It was so much fun, and sooooooooo hilarious.
Pop dat bootay, boo

Staying true to my brand, within two seconds of sitting down, I spilled my water all over the table and myself. Smooooooooth.

I love all my lady friends so much and am so grateful for all of you. Can we just have Galentine's Day like everyday??
