Grab Your Popcorn

After a really long and stressful day of dealing with house building things and work related things we decided to turn our living room into a movie theater! We recently got a projector and we put it to some good use watching some fun movies and tv shows on a big screen. 
We built our little screen out of a white bed sheet and some 2x4s we had lying around (as you can see behind the screen we have a lot just waiting to be used haha). Granted we had some wrinkles in the sheet but once it got dark you couldn't make them anymore so it worked out wonderfully. 
A while back we brought up our two favorite lounge chairs, but they don't fit in tiny cabin so I was excited to get to use them once again.  Will has had his green one for pretty much as long as he can remember and I got my yellow one the first year I moved back east with Will, so they are pretty dear to our hearts. 
We have some friends coming up for a visit to lend a hand on some house/wedding work so hopefully the weather will be in our favor and we can set up our little theater outside! I'm really excited about the idea of getting to do an outdoor movie, there is just something so fun about them. And of course we will be able to enjoy some wonderful BBQ and treats during the movie. Oh my goodness just thinking about all the yummy goodies we will have is getting me all kinds of hungry! 

What are some of your favorite treats to eat during movies?

Hope everyone is having a nice Tuesday.

    Hmmm best movie snacks... popcorn with M&M's tossed in is AMAZING. Sweet & salty. You really can't go wrong.

    Oh and one time, for my birthday party, we did a Willy Wonka Theme and we watched the movie and everyone got a chocolate bar and one had a golden ticket ;)

  17. This is awesome! My husband keeps talking about buying a projector and wants to do this in our house, but I think the outside theater idea is much better :)
