I love these! I usually watch guilty pleasure tv in my pjs while eating junk food cuddled up with my cat.

@missfrillycoat:  On a normal “me” night I camp my bootie on the couch with a really girly rom-com on tv (or trashy reality tv!),  I make myself a dinner of something with a lot of the ingredients I like but he won’t eat, and relax!  Other activities could include:

1.  Blasting music I like (the sexy pop with lots of bass) and dancing dirty to it

2.  Going clothes shopping and/or shopping for makeup and etc…(GIRL STUFF!)

3.  Doing errands and chores that have been neglected and are just easier to do alone

4.  Sleeping in late if he is gone in the morning

5.  Going to the dog park with my dog

6.  Inviting a friend over for a glass of wine and a good “dish” session

7.  Watching a full length ballet on YouTube through our tv

8.  A long bath with a glass of red wine (often supplemented with a bath bomb filled with essential oils)

Ok, I know some/most of mine are kind of cliche, but I can’t help it!

Right now I’m having a “me” night because DH is busy with errands. On “me” nights, I have a cocktail and either get on the phone with a girlfriend, or watch “Sex and the City” re-runs. It reminds me of my single girl days when I was living in my apartment not far from here!

Me nights involve a lot of red wine, lots of snuggling with animals, wearing the most ridiculous fuzzy sock and sweat pants combo, lots of cleaning (why is it easier without him around to do this???) and usually lots of girly shows.

 

… but it should be said I do all of these things with my fiance. But somehow it is nicer sometimes to do these things alone!

I’m soexcited I am having a me night tonight! Lol tonight I will clean our apartment blasting old school 80s music, followed by ordering some dinner and cracking open a bottle of wine and parking my bootie on the couch and watch wedding shows onTLC and Bridezillas and not feel guilty about it at all! Yay I love ME nights!

SO just finished grad school and all of his classes were at night, so I had “me nights” 2-3 nights a week for 2 years! Now, he’s in law school (so all his classes are during the day), but he stays at the library late somtimes, but not that often. I am missing my “me nights”!!

Usually, I watch a lot of crappy TV that he hates (HGTV, Grey’s Anatomy, etc.) and do a lot of cleaning. I make candles, so that’s a “me night” thing too. All of this is accompanied by a nice glass (or 3) of wine.

@missfrillycoat:  Haven’t had a me night in a while but I like to watch something he doesn’t watch with me like Mad Men. I also do some crafts, and play some piano and whatever.

On my “me nights” I eat the weird food that my SO would never approve of. For some reason he doesn’t think a bowl full of tater tots with a side of Nutella is a balanced meal! Tongue Out

The thing I do most frequently on “me” nights is get into bed by 8 and read until I fall asleep! 🙂

But I also get to watch all the crappy TV that he isn’t so excited about…like “Say Yes to the Dress” on Netflix.  He’ll watch it with me because he is a saint, but I know he isn’t crazy about it.

In my defense, on the nights I’m not around, I’ll come home and see Star Trek episodes in the “recently watched” position on my Netflix, so I know he’s watching his guilty pleasure TV shows also.  😀
