When you and your BFFs hit the coffee shop, the barista
starts preparing your “usual.” And you’ve Redbox-ed it so many times, you’ve
seen virtually every new release…twice. Face it: You and your pals are in a
rut. But don’t worry. These hot ideas are guaranteed to banish the winter
Raise the temp
Pull the tanks and flip-flops out of the closet because
you’re having a sizzling soirée! Banish thoughts of freezing temps by serving
ice cream, doing pedicures to show off sandaled feet, decorating with stacks of
beach towels and watching tropical flicks like Blue Crush.
Tear your room apart looking for pictures, concert tickets,
movie stubs and other cool stuff that reminds you of your best friends, and
tell them to do the same. Then, have everyone over for scrapbooking. The catch?
Put your names in a hat, and make a book for whoever’s name you pull out!
Go karaoke crazy
Get inspired by the latest crop of American Idol wannabes and hold a round of auditions—in your living
room. Take turns belting out tunes to see who’s the next Kelly Clarkson and
who’s, well, not. No karaoke machine? Just sing along to CDs. Assign those with
stage fright to the judges’ table.
Get out there!
OK, enough ducking from the cold. Being in the great
outdoors is not only a great change of pace, but it’s good for you. So layer
up, and build a giant snowman or head to the slopes for a snowboarding lesson.
It’ll be hysterical watching your buds fall on their butts. And boys who
’board? So cute!
