girls just want to have fun – tips for a grown up slumber party

Now that the weather is getting cooler, I’m much more inclined to curl up on the couch on the weekends instead of hitting up the bars.  Last night was definitely one of those nights. Luckily, I had been planning a sleepover with one of my BFFs Hannah (who is one of Third & Girl’s biggest fans and commenters, Hi Han!), and it was just what the doctor ordered.  Here are my tips for the ultimate girls night:

First and foremost, comfort is key.  You’ve got to be set up in your comfiest athleisure in order to really get the full on slumber party experience. I decided on my Nap Queen sweatshirt (seen here) and some leggings but, I’ve rounded up some of my other favorite pieces below.

Next, you need to make sure you’re armed with some delicious beverages.  We decided on Cinnamon Fall Pear Cider, we used this recipe.  A note if you use the same recipe, its only a recipe for one drink, so be sure to multiply as necessary. We ended up using 3 cups of sugar in our simple syrup, which made for a very sticky counter but a very delicious cocktail.

Once we were dressed and had beverage in hand, we curled up on the couch with a movie.  Unfortunately, Hocus Pocus wasn’t on the 13 Nights of Halloween, so we settled on ‘The Intern’.  Some other personal sleepover favorites are: ‘Sweet Home Alabama’, ‘Crazy, Stupid, Love’, and ‘Pitch Perfect’.

It was a great night full of laughter, reminiscing, and girl talk. Just what the doctor ordered leading into this chilly Saturday morning.

Do you guys have any other sleepover tips? Favorite drinks? Let me know in the comments.
