Planning the perfect date/movie night at home #TheLongestRide

Between work and family, life can get pretty busy. As much as I’d like to say I can do it all, that’s just not my reality. There is always something that falls off the radar. As parents, that something is usually our alone time. This weekend we’re working on that, and planning for the perfect movie/date night at home.

Our plans consist of steaks and veggies on the grill. Drinks and snacks under the stars, and around the fire-pit. Followed by snuggling on the couch while we watch Nichols Spark’s latest movie The Longest Ride.

The Longest Ride is based on the bestselling novel by master storyteller Nicholas Sparks, THE LONGEST RIDE centers on the star-crossed love affair between Luke, a former champion bull rider looking to make a comeback, and Sophia, a college student who is about to embark upon her dream job in New York City’s art world. As conflicting paths and ideals test their relationship, Sophia and Luke make an unexpected connection with Ira, whose memories of his own decades-long romance with his beloved wife deeply inspire the young couple. Spanning generations and two intertwining love stories, THE LONGEST RIDE explores the challenges and infinite rewards of enduring love.

This is a night I’m really looking forward to! I’ll be mixing this Campfire Popcorn Snack Mix for our time by the fire-pit. If it’s as good as it sounds, I’ll be mixing another batch before our next camping trip in August.
