A brand new rendition of Freaky Friday was released Sept 25, and this time it’s a Musical. While there are several different versions of Freaky Friday out there, the creators of this newest form decided to go vastly different and create it with a cast that can sing. With the popularity of musicals, why not.
Those who know the theme of Freaky Friday know that it usually features a mom and a daughter who are unable to get along and can’t see life from the other’s perspective. Some magical wooshing happens and they eventually switch places. Thus the movie follows their lives as each discovers that their mother/daughter’s life may not be as easy as originally thought.
While this is a classic comedy, it is fun to watch with the girls and sing along to the songs. In fact, Thanks to Disney, My Sister and nieces made a day of it by having an awesome spa day and watching Freaky Friday. What a great way to spend time with the girls!
To pull off this fantastic mother/daughter spa day you will need:
Be sure the tote bag will hold all the spa day items so that everything is in one place and can be grabbed at a moments notice. There is no need to have a stressful search for something that is supposed to inspire relaxation.
Now that you have a bag of holdings and all the items are inside it is time for that much anticipated spa day.
Have a relaxing bath with some fun bath bomb bombs, use a face mask to exfoliate, make those nails shine, and keep those lips glowing. Then you and your daughter(s) sit down and watch Freaky Friday. Trust me when I say, the daughters will love the pampering as much as you do. 🙂 I mean just look at my happy nieces.
