Happy Galentine’s Day!!
Oh, shoot. Well, I’ve up and dunnnnn it again.
Where are my manners?
I should politely ask, have you heard of Galentine’s Day? No!? Well, honey, let me fill you on all the juicy secrets. Galentine’s Day is a very special, girl-power day created by the wonderful and hysterical folks at Parks and Recreation. This video will explain everything.
Basically, it’s a way to 86 the men for the day and celebrate friendship and other shenanigans with some BAMF ladies in our lives, before the other “tine” holiday appears. Make sense? Good.
Let’s celebrate Galentine’s Day in style! Mr. B is a pureist when it comes to his two fingers of bourbon; however, I thought I would add a little LG twist to my glass full of rye. Squeeze a little blood-orange juice to give it a sassy color twist- then fill ‘er up with a bubbly of your choice. The piece de’ resistance, is fried sage. Can I get a what-what?
Make sure and check out the other fab ladies! And also head over to our Pinterest board for inspiration!
