Ok, I’m writing this as much for me as I am for others! Working and mothering for a full week is exhausting! Usually on Friday nights I want to crash! But, hear me out… I’m always happier if I start my weekend by doing something. It doesn’t have to be major, but by doing something you eke more joy out of the weekend.

Also, you may not be able to do a kids free Friday activity, but that’s fine. Include them!


-do happy hour with co-workers or a friend you haven’t seen in awhile

-meet husband for appetizers on way home from work

-come home, start some laundry to get a jump on the weekend chores, go out for a quick bite to keep kitchen clean

-meet a friend for an hour of coffee and shopping

-eat dinner at home but go out for dessert

-grab some dinner at a fast casual place and wander around a book store after

-meet family friends with kids of same age

-invite someone over for simple food and games

Here are some pictures:

We have a Spanish tapas restaurant right by our house. My husband and I met on a Friday at 5:30 before the rush and shared this paella. We brought food home for our boys and enjoyed family time after.

Always go where your olive oil smiles at you. This was on a patio. Enjoy a glass of wine and ask for bread and an appetizer.

You can never go wrong with a frozen strawberry margarita!

This felt like going out- our boys had Friday night plans and we did dinner on the patio and had a really nice night. Bonus points if you have a fire pit and stay out long enough to enjoy it!

What do you normally do on Friday night?

It’s only Tuesday! Start making your plans now!

  1. I agree with doing something on Friday night to kick off the weekend. When our kids were younger we took turns every Friday night hosting pizza, wings, and cards with our best friends. It was so much fun and I miss it so much but that’s what happens when the kids grow up! Now my husband and I always make plans to do something either with friends or without. I love Friday nights!


    1. That is a great tradition and memory! Can you recreate over the holidays? I’m going to try hard to do a Friday night activity!
