As many, if not all, of you know we just had our sweet little Mckenna 6 weeks ago today. She’s been such a sweetie and we’re so happy to have her in our family finally. We’ve all become more acclimated and acquainted to one another and we’re starting to fall into more of a routine. You know, as routine as getting up in the middle of the night for feedings and tip-toeing around nap time goes!
Sometimes a big life change like the birth of a child, a big move, or something similar can cause strain on a relationship. I’ve noticed, though, that with Mckenna’s birth and with me being home more now that I’m maternity leave Cory and I have grown closer together. We joke around with each other more and even flirt a little bit — gasp!
Even still, it’s important to spend one-on-one quality time with each other to continue to love on one another and remind each other why the heck you got together in the first place! (Am I right?) I thought it would be fun for the two of us to have a little date night at home. You know, with a movie, some popcorn and just relax together. I don’t see us leaving the house for a solo date night since Mckenna is just starting to take a bottle now and still occasionally fights it, it’s just easier for us to keep our date nights at home for now!
I even decided to whip up some Pop Secret Kettle Corn and Movie Theater Buttered popcorn for the occasion. Because what’s a movie night without popcorn? Right? After walking the aisles of Walmart (alone, mind you, since Cory stayed home with Mckenna and Alea was at school) I decided to jazz up our popcorn a little bit!
Here’s all you need:
-Pop Secret Kettle Corn or Butter
-M&Ms (or other chocolate candy)
Toss it all together and I’m telling you it’s like heaven in a bowl!
And honestly, the best part about having a date night at home? You don’t have to get all gussied up. You can just throw your hair in a top knot, put on your favorite pair of pajama pants and you’re good to go! I’m sure Cory might prefer that I wear something other than pajama pants for once, but I’m on maternity leave and I’m getting my pajama pants days in while I can!
If you’re headed to Walmart to grab some date night goodies, don’t forget to take advantage of this deal! >> Buy 2 Pop Secret 10 ct or 10+2 ct bonus packs at Walmart between 12/7/16 – 1/8/17 and get an $8 credit toward a ticket to the Assassin’s Creed movie while supplies last.
And Mckenna decided to crash our date night when she was hungry, but hey, a girls gotta eat!
Now we just gotta keep pushing the bottle over the next week and then we can hopefully go see Assassin’s Creed when it comes out on December 21st!
What do you do to make your at home date night special?
