Such busy weeks at school now that we are only two weeks away from the final deadlines! In times like these it’s fun to look back to more laid-back times, such as to the girls’ night I had almost two weeks ago with my lovely (blogger) friends Hayley and Sophie.
Anyway, it was a really nice Friday evening filled with food and sparkling wine and gin and tonics. Plenty of girl talk too. Exactly the kind of thing one needs occasionally.
We decided to have the girls’ night as the mister was off to Austria and we had the place all to ourselves. We put up music, lit all the candles in the house and sat around the table. Sophie made a Mexican-style salad and tomato salsa and Hayley brought more snacks as well. I made a Finnish style gravad lax according to my grandmother’s recipe. An interesting mix of different cuisines but hey, good food is good food!
Though all of us love visiting new interesting places in Utrecht, this time we decided to just stay in. (none of us was feeling like going to the bars) Sometimes, and for me it’s starting to become most of the times (getting old I suppose) it’s more fun to stay in than go out. The drinks are generally cheaper, and in our case the food is better. Also you have more say over the music!
We had such a great time and we will definitely do it again. I love entertaining at home, be it a girls’ night or a dinner party with family. Brings the space to life.
A short post today, as I haven’t quite got the hang of scheduling posts yet. Rookie mistake, but I got to dash off soon to start filming one of the videos we are doing for our school projects. This one is a PSA against verbal abuse. I do love the fact we get to work with such different things!
What are your ingredients for a perfect girls’ night? Do you like going out or staying in? Let’s hear it in the comments!
