Getting Your Post-Pregnancy Groove Back: Girls' Night

Having a baby doesn't mean your social life ends. Reclaim it with a fabulous girls' night out!


 
When was the last time you had a proper girls' night? You know, a let-your-hair-down, live-in-the-moment, pure-fun giggle-fest where there was no where else on earth you'd rather be? 
 
Don't let your social life slip into the back seat — spending quality time with friends is just as important as making time for family. We know — it's easier said than done. Need some help? We've already covered how you can get your post-pregancy groove back in the romance department, now, we're covering the social side of things. 
 
Here are 6 inspirational ideas for planning your next girl's night, with options from backyard lounging to martini sipping.  
 
Movie night out
 
Movie theatre popcorn, Milk Duds, sitting back in front of an enormous screen and taking in a guilty pleasure rom-com? It's the ultimate indulgence. For 2 hours, you can turn your brain off, be entertained, laugh, cry and swoon over a dreamy cast with your girlfriends. That's escapism made easy. 
 
Classy cocktails night
 
Get glammed up and hit the town for some decadent drinks. The new hot spot you've been hearing about, or the cute little place you've been wanting to check out forever — now's the time. Splurging on a well-made martini or fresh mojito can be every bit as satisfying and stimulating for the senses as a great dinner. 
 
Backyard bonfire night 
 
Don't let these beautiful summer nights pass you by. Make the most of them by hosting a backyard bonfire party. Splurge on a fire bowl and make like you're camping: gather round in lawn chairs, roast marshmallows on sticks, make s'mores, stargaze and tell baby stories (er... scary stories). Chill nights in the backyard are the simple pleasures summer is meant for. 
 
DIY Pinterest night
 
Gone may be the days when you actually did arts and crafts for yourself, but if you haven't made something beautiful for your home, garden or back deck in a while, you've probably forgotten how satisfying it can be. Pick a killer craft that caught your eye on Pinterest, gather the materials and host a craft night complete with wine, nibbles and whatever music stokes your creative fires. Time well spent. 
 
Slumber-party style spa night
 
Remember when you were a preteen and your idea of the best night ever consisted of your best friend coming over and doing avocado facemasks, manis and pedis while flipping through magazines and indulging in a little girl talk? Pssst... we've got news: it still rules. There's no age limit on a home spa night. But now, you can pop a bottle of champagne as you wait for those toe nails to dry! 
  
Yoga and mocha cookie crumble fraps
 
Even if sweating buckets in a sports bra and stretch pants isn't your idea of a fun night out, a yoga class with friends can actually be a ton of fun. Hitting the yoga studio — the candle-lit ambience, the zen-play list, being surrounded by committed yogis — can be the perfect mix of relaxation and motivation. Treat yourself to some decadent frosty treats post session. Seriously — you deserve it.
