Girls’ Night In
Who says you need to go out to get your thrills? We certainly don’t! A Girls’ Night In party offers the perfect opportunity to kick it with your girls in a cozy, yet stimulating environment. Instead of throwing money away at the bars, why not indulge in one shopping spree that will have you and your significant other screaming with excitement?
Peanut Butter Chocolate Satisfaction ] 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
] 1/2 cup peanut butter ] 9 cups crispy rice cereal ] 1 1/2 cups confectioner’s sugar
CUTE & COZY
Tonight, comfort trumps all. Pick a room that calls for people to sink into the furniture. Even if it’s not a sleepover, place several blankets and pillows around the room. Light scented candles (or perhaps a fire), and place trays of snacks in each seating area, so they are easily accessible for all your guests.
