Finding time just for the girls is next to impossible…and that’s if it ever makes it on the books, right?
As moms we are so centered on making sure the rest of the family gets their perfect balance of learning and fun time with others, we normally sacrifice our own. But it’s not “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” when you reconnect with your friends, it’s also about your own personal wellbeing and setting a good example to your children that life isn’t just about working ALL THE TIME. However, a party doesn’t always have to look like it came off Pinterest. Sometimes you just have to put a date on the calendar, send out some texts and say “come on over!”
And that’s exactly what I did a few days ago when I found myself without a huge list of to-dos…I sent out a text and said let’s do it old-school and remember what it was like before Internet, kids and responsibilities and eating pizza was the purpose of the party: 80s Pizza Party!
With only a few hours to spare before the gals showed up, I went to Walmart to pick up a few key things for an 80s theme including TONY’S® Pizza (now 30% larger and with pizzeria taste!)
And one new item that I didn’t get to enjoy while I was growing up in the 80s – an adult beverage. Keeping up with the evening’s theme I grabbed two ingredients to make our own wine coolers – filling up the glass with a little rose and a splash of sparkling strawberry lemonade (less than $.64 at Walmart.)
While I knew the night would be full of fun and laughs, setting the tone for the evening I found the perfect set of 80s movies with greatest pizza moments of all time.
- Mystic Pizza (where we all fell in love with Julia!)
- Fast Times at Ridgemont High
- Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
- Dazed and Confused
- The Breakfast Club
Instead of drinking every time we hear a word, we’d eat pizza every time the stars in the movie did, too.
With the help of TONY’S® Pizza and Netflix, I had a fun party in less than 30 minutes. And for less than $3 per pizza, the whole party only cost about what it did for a pair of Keds, circa 1988. Now don’t wait for the special occasion, just send out some texts, download this coupon to save $.75 off any TWO Tony’s Pizza (now until 6/30/15 and while supplies last.)
Don’t you wish life was still as easy as a party with pizza, popcorn, pop and popular quotes?
