Brian and I are homebodies. (My sister might replace the word “homebodies” with the word “losers” but potato potahto.) Anyway. We always have been. Our first date was dinner out and then a movie at his apartment. Our Valentine’s day tradition is picking up Chinese take out. Even before we had kids our idea of an excellent Friday night was movies at home. The only sad part about this is that microwave popcorn is not nearly as good as movie theater popcorn. Enter the refillable popcorn bucket. (Be prepared to judge me and my popcorn addiction here.)
Our local Carmike movie theater (actually, all Carmikes, I think?) is doing a promotion where you can buy a plastic popcorn bucket and then get refills for $3.50. So our new favorite thing to do for date night is to go fill our popcorn bucket with delicious, buttery, movie theater popcorn and then come home to watch a movie! It’s the best of all worlds. Awesome snacks, plus pajamas and the ability to pause the movie.
Now you tell me, what’s your favorite date night?
P.S. All this popcorn has been not good for my dieting. But it’s so yummy!
