If you are like me, by Thursday at lunch you are feeling the pressure to plan your weekend. Do you text your friends and brainstorm local West Des Moines patios to visit for a Friday night happy hour? Or do you plan a biking venture downtown and find a way to end up in one of the newest East Village restaurants? Why do we put so much effort on our perfect night out but not put much focus on our perfect night in? There is nothing wrong with drawing a nice bubble bath, clicking on your favorite Netflix show, and treating yourself to a delicious cheese plate and wine. There is nothing better than pressing the pause button to slow down the weekend. We put together the must-haves to make your night in happen. Turn your FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) to JOMO (Joy Of Missing Out)
Settle in with your favorite beverage – From Baileys to a classic red wine, finding a beverage to help you wind down the week is recommended.
Get you hygge on! Pronounced “hoo-guh” this Danish term means “a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being” Find that quality of coziness, relaxation, and comfiness! From your warmest blanket to fuzzy socks, let’s be like Marvin Gaye and get our hygge on.
Mood enhancers: Candles, a great Spotify playlist, your favorite book or Netflix show can make or break the mood
Finally (and most importantly) devour a delicious board- Let One Board Gal bring the cheese plate of your dreams to reality as you sink into that comfy couch! We won’t disappoint.
