Mars graciously supplied me with a wonderful movie night package and has sponsored this post and giveaway. All opinions are mine, and I do truly love a night at home, camped out on the couch, watching a movie with ice cream in hand.
I love watching movies. Drama. Romantic comedies (not the cheesy ones, but the quirky funny ones). Suspense. Mystery. But, I hate picking out what movie we should watch. That responsibility falls fully on Hubs. Which he does with many an eye roll. What I don’t love is the price tag that comes along with watching a movie in the theater. Not to mention the sticky floors and dealing with other people who don’t always remember that there is an etiquette that goes along with viewing a movie in the theater.
Add on some pop corn, soda and other goodies and we easily just spent a week’s worth of groceries. As much as I like watching movies, I much prefer feeding my family.
This is why most of our movie nights are spent at home. Curled up on the couch. Pizza, popcorn, ice cream or snack of choice in hand. Me and Hubs. Me and the boys. All of us camped out on the floor for a movie night.
These are some of my very favorite moments of a lazy summer weekend at home. No waiting in lines at a packed theater. No giant boxes of popcorn that you never finish. Just me, the boys, Hubs some of our very favorite snacks and a movie or two of choice.
Catching the infectious belly laughs that exploded from the kiddo as Wreck It Ralph played on our screen while we all devoured some very delicious M&M Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches. Snuggled up on the couch with Hubs and a Milk Way ice cream bar, watching Jack Reacher while the boys slept soundly in their room. Secretly wondering if I could sneak another M&M, Milky Way, Snickers or Twix ice cream bar stashed in the basement freezer (answer: only if I wanted to miss a moment of the movie, and I totally didn’t).
Enjoying some very needed, much deserved and wonderfully enjoyed quality time with the boys and men that I most love in this life. In the comfort, quiet of my own home. And to top it all off, ice cream. ICE CREAM! In some of my very favorite candy bar flavors.
Yeah, I’ll totally take a movie night at home over a movie night in the theater. Totally.
Get a Movie Night of Your Own
As much as I want to hog all of this goodness to myself (And I do, I really, really do. I never learned to share ice cream.), Mars has invited me to share a Modern Movie Night basket with one of you, my lucky, lucky readers. Who wants a cozy blanket (for those summer nights when the air conditioning is cranked up just a little too high), a popcorn bowl complete with microwave popcorn, M&M’S candy (Y!U!M!), and Mars ice cream bars (Twix, Milky Way, Snickers, and M&M’S) each with a code for a free movie from Redbox. I do! I do!
Hmm, I wonder if I can enter my own giveaway, because I’d sure love another of these basket.
