One of my favorite things to do after a busy week is to stay home, cozy up and have a movie night with my kids. Above, I have listed some of our favorite movies that are available on Pure Flix; as well as some other essentials for a fun movie night. Another tip: I have noticed if I insert the word “party” after any activity, my kids think it is the greatest thing. Our movie nights are family movie night parties! We like to be creative. We have done everything from setting up a tent in the back yard; to building a huge pallet on the living room floor with tons of pillows and all of our favorite stuffed animals. The more creative…the more fun it is. As much as we love to travel and see new things, these memories made at home are some of the best memories we have made together.

Oh, and here is the recipe for my kettle corn, you’ll LOVE it!
Cathy’s Kettle Corn
Ingredients: 1/2 cup uncooked popcorn kernels, 1/4 cup coconut oil, 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/4 cup sugar
Heat oil over medium-high heat in a heavy pan. Add 3 popcorn kernels to the oil. Shake pan every few seconds until the 3 kernels pop. When popped add sugar and stir constantly until close to dissolved, about 10-15 seconds. Quickly add 1/2 cup popcorn kernels and cover with lid. Shake five times and let rest for 2 seconds. Repeat this until you hear the popping stop. Immediately remove from heat and pour into a large bowl. Toss with 1/4 tsp. salt. If desired, add 1-2 Tbsp. melted coconut oil over the top for extra flavor. Enjoy!
