Do you have a “girly night”?

When I was in high school, I would use every Friday night to do my nails, facial, hair and watch TGIF (Thank Goodness It’s Friday). It was methodical and my friends knew that every Friday, I’d be heading home to have my girly night. I wasn’t going to the go-go, the skating rink or any…
