A Blanket Fort Movie Date
Is there anything cozier than an afternoon of comfy clothes, pillows, blankets, a movie, and snacks? Actually, one of our very first blog posts was an “at-home” movie date and it’s one that we often recreate on lazy weekends. This time, we decided to build a blanket fort for an even cozier vibe and it gave us nostalgic memories of childhood days. Wrapped up in my new favorite sweater, joggers, AC turned down, and armed with snacks, we settled in for a comfortable afternoon.
Our Favorite Healthy Snacks
I was so excited when Bare offered to send us some of their healthy snacks because I’m absolutely obsessed with all of their stuff! Particularly, the fuji apple chips (both plain and cinnamon) are one of my all time favorite snacks and I’m constantly packing them for my lunch at school. I’ve also tried a variety of their coconut chips before and they are equally as delicious. Brandon ate the whole bag of banana chips in one sitting, and I did the same with the beets!
The best thing about this little snack is that Bare doesn’t use any oils or anything to cook the fruits/veggies with. It’s simply the fruit or vegetable, and maybe a little bit of seasoning (for instance, the beets had sea salt and the apples had cinnamon). It’s a perfectly guilt free snack and that’s why I’m so drawn to it. If you guys haven’t tried these before, TRUST me when we say, they are a staple in our home and so, so delicious. We’re excited to find these new-to-us flavors at our grocery store next visit!
The Movie Projector We Used
B: Some of you were asking what sort of projector we used for our Moroccan movie night a few weeks ago. We were able to borrow this Brookstone mini-projector from Katherine’s dad and absolutely loved it. We obviously had a screen set up for the backyard party, but inside for this date, we were able to just use a big empty wall. It was so much fun to watch a movie in “large screen” to really get that movie theatre vibe. If you have a bluetooth speaker, it’s very simple to hook that up and get a better sound quality (instead of just using your laptop for sound).
On Katherine: Topshop sweater, Anthropologie joggers
On Brandon: Similar henley, Sudara Punjammies
