A long weekend means more time to do the things you love:

Have a BBQ. 

Is your dad dusting off the grill this weekend? Make sure a burger gets delivered straight from the fire to your nightstand. Getting out of bed is overrated. Reminder: Text him to bring extra napkins from the kitchen so you don’t accidentally spill on your sheets.

Go camping.

Ah, the great indoors. Make a tent out of sheets or a fort out of pillows. Curl up inside with your iPad and air conditioning.

Soak up the sun.

Open the window shade closest to your bed so you can sun bathe. Let the warm air flow through the screen and hit your face. You can even move your mattress closer to the window for extra rays. The best part? No sunblock necessary.

Catch up with old friends.

Binge in bed — Friends seasons 1 – 10. If Friends wasn’t your favorite gang, hit play on Sex and the City, Gossip Girl, Community, or How I Met Your Mother.

Take in the ocean.

Download the Ocean Waves Sounds App and let the crashing waves soothe you to sleep. Wake up the next morning and find a stock photo of the beach. Post it on Instagram. Add a geo-tag to make it believable. It’s like you were actually there.

Shop till you drop.

Need summer swimsuits? Memorial Day is notorious for sales. Skip the stores and scroll through sites from the comfort of your own bed though.

Throw a party.

Invite your favorite person over. Make it a slumber party. Tell them to BYOB (bring your own blanket). Stay in bed watching movies, drinking wine, and most importantly, sleeping.
