Happy Galentine’s Day!

13 Feb

“What’s Galentine’s Day? Oh it’s only the best day of the year. Every February 13th my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home and we come and kick it breakfast style. Ladies celebrating ladies”

Galentine's DayIt might be a fictional holiday courtesy of Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation, but Galentine’s Day is something TV Ate My Wardrobe fully supports. Celebrating lady friends AND with breakfast food; who wouldn’t want that?! Make sure to bring an intricate art and crafts project or at least some sort of gift certificate. Failing that, just make sure there are waffles and plenty of whipped cream.

April Galentine's DayAnn leaving Pawnee has left a big beautiful (insert your own choice here) hole in Leslie’s BFF heart and I’m disappointed we didn’t get one final Galentine’s Day before she departed. I’m going to miss this pairing as it’s one of my favorite TV female friendships and it’s one that didn’t suffer from the usual cliches. Instead of being sad here is a supercut of all the best Leslie and Ann moments – yes it’s over 25 minutes long and it’s all good.

I know this scene doesn’t come from a Galentine’s Day episode, however it captures everything I love about the lady friendships on Parks and Recreation and as April testifies “everyone know this song, it’s amazing.” Yes, yes it is.

Be sure to check out the Galentine’s Day Google Hangout being hosted by Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls at the Party today.
