Sometimes there are times you and your boo want to go out and sometimes you just want to stay in and relax. It's a great way of being closer and no noises from people in the back of you when your in the movie theater. My boyfriend and I always love to just relax at home and just be together and why not do it at home and not have to leave. When we stay at home and do a date night in we are not necessary going to talk about our jobs, no drama, but we love to share more about ourselves with each other. Just talking with each other gets us closer and it's a great way to spend more time together. We are the type of people that watch each other's back, so if we are having a problem we try to fix it. I love him and it's just amazing and everyone should have someone that loves you to death and is always there for you no matter what and then watch your cute movie with your cutie.
When I heard about Hotel Transylvania 2; I knew it was a perfect movie; I have seen it, but my boyfriend hasn't and I was like what!? It's such a cute movie and one hashtag would have to be, #MakeItAMovieNight. I just made some yummy cookies for us with popcorn and Coca-Cola. I actually did put a teaspoon of Coca-Cola in the frosting! I listed it in the recipe below. When we are together I always try to make us some yummy treats and he loves my Peanut M&M’S® Cookies and anything M&M’S®! So this post is so great for both of us.
When I went to Walmart for my essentials for the cookies, I went home and baked my easy Peanut M&M’S® Cookies with Coca-Cola Frosting and it's such a delicious treat after dinner and of course you must have popcorn and drinking the Coca-Cola as well. Who wouldn't love to just have a easy night in with your hubby right and have so much deliciousness. I also went and bought this yummy Pop Orville Redenbacher 6 pack Movie Theater Popcorn and it's so perfect with these cookies and of course your movie that we are watching for this movie night in. It's perfect touch to everything and who doesn't love delicious movie theater popcorn right?! When I was doing

One thing you can make your movie night memorable is to make it super cute and girly, yes I know guy's aren't girly, but who cares; make your home as girly and cozy and your love will love it. I love having candles with roses or pink petals on a table or even to your room. Today I kind of made it more of a Valentines theme since it's almost that time.
