.Fun Group Activity.

Happy Tuesday Friends! Hope your all Smiling Happy :)

So, today I thought I'd share a fun activity that I'm actually a part of. It's a wonderful idea (if I don't say so myself) that involves getting out there and going for it. It's shared between a group of friends (our's happen to be ALL ladies - 10 to be exact), and has been a very fun and exciting experience that I look forward to each month (especially when it's 'your' month....read on below to understand). This idea was brought to my attention from a Wonderful friend of mine (and she's been awarded bonus friend points as she's also a 'Follower' on the Fancy Napkin) Maegen, who asked me if I'd be interested. I instantly replied "YES". So happy I did.
I hope you find your Group and Enjoy this as much as we have!

Monthly Activity Group (aka. Ladies Nights!)
1) Get a group of 10 ladies (note: fun to mix it up between your good friends and some new acquaintances so that you can get to know some new people) who can all meet once a month for 10 months (you can do this up to 12 people for 12 months, get it?)

2) Every month there would be a different "hostess" - who will plan and arrange the activity for all of the group to do (determine each hostess's month upon your first greet and meet)
3) Each lady would bring $50 each month - $25 goes toward the activity, and $25 goes toward the hostess of that month (see why 'your' month is the best!). The hostess would get $250 to spend on herself, and herself alone - no groceries, no gas - strictly treat herself to something she desires (unless you really, really desire gas and groceries!) Plus, the next meeting she has to share with us how she chose to spend her "fun" money!
4) The activity has to be under $25/person - and trust me, there are A LOT of fun, unique things to do in and around Edmonton (or wherever you happen to live!)

Rules (I know, not fun, but there has to be something to keep things working!)
1) Every single person in the group MUST commit to the full 10 months - this ensures that it's fair for all of us, and you just don't "take the money and run", so to speak. Note: If someone can't make it (because it does happen), then make sure that they still pay the $50 so that no one misses out on there hostess month gift. Also note: that any extra money left over from a cheaper activity, etc. needs to go with the group. You can then use this towards a more expensive activity or for some drinks at the finish of all months!
2) Be open and willing to try new things - no complaining! We won't do anything that's dangerous, or unsafe (because those activities are WAY more than $25/person!!!). Trust me, you must keep this rule open in your head for the full 10 months (our ladies group has already done Rock climbing, Cooking class, Sumo Suit Wrestling, and a Lap dance class!!)

That's it! Easy right, and so much fun. Isn't this an awesome way to escape the every day routine/stresses and give you a chance to try new things, meet new people, and have a lot of fun in the process!!!
Try and get creative with you ideas, but here are some to get you started:
  • Dance (this includes pole dancing classes, lap dance classes, aerobics, etc)
  • Cooking
  • Art (painting, drawing, etc.)
  • Pottery
  • Card Making
  • Outdoor sports (rock climbing, kayaking, etc)
  • Scrap booking
  • Photography
  • Sewing or Crafting
  • Horseback riding
  • Fencing (hey why not!)
  • Karate
  • Swimming
Can anyone think of a few more creative ideas? Let me know!
