Five Great Reasons to Grab a Girlfriend and Go

Five Great Reasons to Grab a Girlfriend and Go
Read Carefully

I have a saying “Family Travel is NO Vacation”. Now a Girlfriend’s Getaway? That’s something else entirely. Here’s why:

1. Girlfriends are always up for adventure.

A last minute cruise to nowhere? Why not. No need to make lists, or worse, budgets, it doesn’t even have to make sense. There doesn’t need to be a purpose to the trip or an “action plan” – just shoe packing

 

Notice the lack of luggage, car seats, strollers and tears?

Husbands never think it's just fine to change in the back of a truck

Who knew a quad cab is also an excellent place to change out of wet swimsuits?

2. Girlfriends understand that champagne and doughnuts can absolutely be considered a complete meal.

No need to make reservations at some restaurant that you had to research. Actually, the mini-bar can double as a restaurant. Girlfriends understand that sometimes a Diet Coke and Doritos are totally worth $10.

 

Girlfriends realize that doughnuts and pink champagne can absolutely be called "lunch"

Fruit and grains-right there-bam complete meal.

3. Girlfriends are happy to go at your pace, fast, slow, whatever.

No need to push yourself to prove a point. Also, they understand that the most important part of any vacation is the photos. If they’re an awesome friend, they’ll even Vine you. I skied with my buddy Kimberly Blaine this year, she even packs a camera that smooths out all the wrinkles, seriously, that exists. Check her out at The Go To Mom.

4. There are some things only girlfriends get.

Yes “Hooray for Boobies” is hilarious and perfectly acceptable to wear for school pick up. Also, the best music ever made was in the 1980’s by big hair bands. Contrary to Mr. Evans belief, mothers of four CAN drink jello shots and function the next day thank you very much.

 

When you need someone who will sing EVERY 80's song-OUT LOUD with you - your husband's not usually the first call

Also, who else would be willing to take a picture of you trying to lick Ben Affleck and find it as hilarious as you do?

Who else besides a girlfriend will take a picture of you licking Ben Affleck?

5. Girlfriends understand that flirting with the cute bartender does not mean your marriage or relationship is in jeopardy.

it means you’re having fun, AND you might get a free drink. No judgy. These photos are from my review of the new Celebrity Cruise ship The Reflection.
