25 Cheer up Texts for Friends – Girlfriend Inspiration

25 Texts to cheer up a friendNeed a cheer up message for a friend? Want to send an encouraging text to cheer up your friend? You’ve come to the right place!

 “When it rains, it pours … but soon, the sun shines again. Better days are ahead.”

That just might be the cheer up text that a friend needs to receive.

When you love someone as a friend (or more than a friend), you want them to be happy – right? Sometimes that isn’t the case when they’re going through tough situations or just dealing with more than they’d like. It might be just a bad day, or a sad day, or a rough month/year/decade. What’s important is letting her know that you’re there and that you care. Our friends look to us for encouragement and support – let’s be the kind of friend who provides it! Let’s be the friend who sends cheer up text messages!

Cheer up friendship sms quoteSeems like everyone sends texts/IMs these days. Within a minute or two, you can brighten her day, make her smile, and let her know you’re thinking about her. You can command Siri (or whomever) to write it for you (well, you do have to say it). You can send her an inspiring quote (see ideas below or check out these quotes) or a funny photo/emoji (app below). There are lots of ways you can use technology, apps, SMS/texts to be a better friend and cheer up a friend – which is our goal here on Girlfriendology! (Here’s another 25 text messages to cheer up a friend!)

Midwest Roadtrip – Girlfriend Trip to Louisville, part 1

Midwest Roadtrip – Girlfriend Trip to Louisville, part 1

Midwest road trip, girlfriend trip to Louisville KYSometimes you meet a BFF in an unexpected way/place, right? Well, sometimes you can experience a memorable Girlfriend trip in an unexpected destination too!

We set off with map in hand! On little highways and byways, we headed south/west through Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky to reach our mid-west road trip destination of Louisville, KY. Sometimes you just have to go off the grid to make memories with your girlfriend(s).

Say ‘Louisville, KY‘ and what do most people think? Usually the Kentucky Derby, right? But there is SO MUCH more! We discovered a vibrant city that has so many things for a fun, fab girlfriend trip. A beautiful river town with southern charm, unique (and fun!) attractions, and a big small town of nice people. Located within two hours of Indianapolis, Cincinnati or Evanston. Four hours or less from St. Louis, Nashville, Knoxville, and Columbus OH. Five hours from Chicago, and six from Pittsburg, Cleveland, or Detroit. (All a great road-trip distance away from most cities in the midwest.)

Actually, I did a little research: Louisville is the 30th city based on U.S. population (twice as large as Pittsburgh, St. Louis, or, my hometown, Cincinnati). Located on the Ohio River, the self-proclaimed home of southern cuisine and world-famous bourbon, Louisville deserves the title as one of the ‘Ten Best New Food Cities.’

This year*, my girlfriend and I spent four days in Louisville for our girlfriend road trip / adventure – and definitely will be going back. We filled our days with tours, art, and adventures; and evenings with yummy meals, wineries, distilleries, and even river exploration.  Join us …

… Louisville IS home of the Kentucky Derby. Churchill Downs, home of the “Run for the Roses,” aka: “The Most Exciting Two Minutes In Sports,” welcomes over 250,000 people to Louisville for the first weekend in May – and has been run every consecutive year since 1875. As a visitor to Louisville, Churchill Downs and the Derby tour are a wonderful way to experience the most amazing sporting event – especially one that requires fancy hats!

From the history of horses to the couture culture (and hats), Mint Juleps to Kentucky-born Bourbon, the Kentucky Derby comes alive when you tour Churchill Downs!

Churchill Downs Louisville Girls TripDefinitely, make time in your Louisville visit for Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby Museum. The tour shares the history and facts about the more of a century of horse racing. We heard about the history, learned about the legacies, and watched dozens of amazing horses practicing on the beautiful track. Inside the Kentucky Derby Museum, we watched a history of the Kentucky Derby in a theatre in-the-round. (To be honest, the movie about the horses and history was so powerful, it actually made me cry!) In addition to the movie, the museum was filled with fun exhibits – like the chance to bet on previous levitra online pharmacy races and displays of fancy race outfits and hats. It is a wonderful way to spend a morning or day in Louisville!

Wagners Pharmacy and Diner Louisville Churchill DownsAfter leaving the Kentucky Derby Museum, we found an unexpected treasure … Wagner’s Pharmacy and ‘World Famous Diner.’ To rub elbows with locals and ‘horse people,’ stop by this blast from the past eatery famous for breakfast and the iconic ‘Hot Brown’ sandwich famous as Louisville’s most famous dish. Wagner’s was quaint, cool, and a yummy find – perfect for a meal after visiting Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby Museum!

Another amazing attraction in Louisville is the Mega Cavern. When they say ‘MEGA,’ they mean it! This is Lousiville’s #1 attraction, per Trip Advisor – and rightly so! We were amazed to find this hidden gem underneath Louisville – even under the 134-acre zoo! Even though it’s underground, the Louisville MEGA Cavern is actually the largest building in the state of Kentucky!

Louisville Mega Cave, girlfriend tripJust book it – take the Mega Cavern Zipline tour! (They also have a tram, bikes, electric bikes, and a ropes course through the tavern – so something for everyone and every skill set/activity level.) We went on the Mega Zip which is a two-hour course zip-lining through amazing cavern underground! Take my word on it, I was a little nervous about this and it was totally AMAZING! It is beautiful! The guides were fun and helpful, and we never felt like we had to fear it – every safety precaution has been covered. Get ready to zip line and even cross ropes bridges that you never imagined you could (but, you’re strapped/lined in so are completely safe). I wish I would have taken my phone/camera to show you all the beauty and adventure, but I didn’t want to drop my camera, or, to be honest, miss out on one moment of the fun. DO IT! It was such a fun girlfriend trip adventure!

Another unexpected adventure and wonderful ‘find’ in Louisville was the Speed Art Museum. Okay, I admit. I didn’t do my research. I thought this might be a museum to horse racing (as in ‘speed’) but it wasn’t and it was an amazing find in Louisville! Check out our next blog post on Louisville for what a wonderful FIND the Speed Art Museum was! (And, more on our shopping, bourbon and river adventures!)

Thanks to the Louisville Convention and Visitors Bureau for arranging our trip and to the Kentucky Derby and Mega Cavern Zip tour for hosting us. We LOVE Louisville and will be back! It is a perfect Girlfriend Trip destination!

A Toast to #TeamUSA :) Olympic Party Ideas from the Wine Sisterhood

A Toast to #TeamUSA :) Olympic Party Ideas from the Wine Sisterhood

Olympic Party Ideas, Wine SisterhoodYEAH! The Olympics start tonight and run for 16 days of track and field, swimming, football (aka: soccer) and many more sports (including synchronized swimming and badminton!). It’s a great time to invite friends over to watch a competition and cheer on Team USA! (Here’s the official Olympic schedule.)

Our girlfriends over at the Wine Sisterhood know all about throwing a party and we wanted to share their inspiration for 4th of July – or any Americana type party. (Go TEAM USA!) So thanks to the Wine Sisterhood for this Olympic Party inspiration:

Plan wisely. Not sure about how much wine, beer and spirits to buy? Download our Drink-U-Lator app to help calculate what you’ll need for the size of your party and your party guests’ preferred beverages.

Stock up. When you’re at the store, don’t forget to look for our new Wine Sisterhood Wines.

Dress up those hot dogs. Think beyond ketchup and mustard by trying out one of these ideas for creating delicious “haute dogs.”

Serve them something different. Sure, burgers and dawgs can do the trick, but we think this Asian-inspired recipe for grilled beef satay could really wow your guests.

Deck out your tables. Turn wine bottles into centerpieces with festive tags. Free printable tags like these from Living Locurto stand out in a sea of red, white and blue.

Add some flavorful fun to the bar. Set up a festive DIY sangria bar incorporating fruits with colors and shapes that build on the festive theme: try BLUEberries, RED raspberries and strawberries, even Starfruit (WHITE?)! Pour in some of our new Middle Sister Wild One Malbec or Glamour Girl Bubbly to pull it all together.

Top it off with a sweet treat. Even if you don’t drink beer, you’ll love it in these cupcakes! Mix up a batch of these Guinness Cupcakes.

Girlfriendology friends olympics quote, friendship quotesAnother Olympic party idea:

  • Everybody’s Brazilian – Celebrate Rio with Brazilian food. Toast the winners  with Glamour Girl Bubbly (and any sparkling white for that matter).

Check out these Summer Sangria recipes – perfect for a Girlfriend Get-together! And ideas for the Perfect Girlfriend Day!

And CONGRATS! Middle Sister Drama Queen Pinot Grigio received a DOUBLE GOLD from the California State Fair wine competition! That’s HUGE! Look at all the awards they’ve won – wow. We’ve got some award winning Sisters!

Which ‘Middle Sister’ are you? Drama Queen, Mischief Maker (I admit, that’s me!) or … take the quiz to see which Middle Sister you are!

Olympic Girlfriends – We want you to ‘Do Your Best’

Olympic Girlfriends – We want you to ‘Do Your Best’

Do Your Best quote, Olympic friendshipsDo right. Do your best. Treat others as you want to be treated.
Lou Holtz

Watching the Olympics, I’m reminded of the mind-blowing things humans can do when we set our mind to it. From flawlessly dancing across a sheet of ice, to leaping into the sky to show us all how women CAN fly, to partnering or teaming up to show us the strength in athletes with a common goal.

What comes to mind is how they have years of training and dedication, and it all  to come to this moment of ‘doing their best.’

Not just during the Olympics, but all the time – Girlfriends want the best for each other. We want to see the amazing women in our lives accomplish their goals and to dream BIG dreams. We also need the fabulous females in our lives who want the same of us – who expect us to strive for a best we possibly doubted without her encouragement and support.

So today, we applaud not only the Olympians, but Olympic Girlfriends. Who go the extra mile for us, who have faith in us, who encourage us to be our best. The ones who we want to see succeed and will be there to celebrate when they do. The ‘silver’ and ‘gold’ girlfriends – new and old – who make us feel like award-winners just by being our friend.

Who’s your GOLD medal girlfriend? Did you ever think about telling her how much her friendship means to you? DO IT!
