Here’s the honest truth: I spend a LOT of my time on my feet. Between my job (which is extremely active) and my other everyday activities, I clock a great deal of steps on any given day. When it comes to my time off, sometimes I just need to take some time for ME.
It doesn’t have to be fancy, but there are definitely times when I find myself in need of unplugging from technology, sitting down on the couch, popping in a movie and having dessert…basically making an indulgent moment to enjoy!
Let’s get real: as much as I’d love to go on a vacation every few weeks, that just really is not in the cards for me. Therefore, creating special moments at home are so important! Yes, a movie night at home is something that happens on a somewhat regular basis, but sometimes you just need to kick it up a notch to make it that much better, so that is exactly what I did!
The first step: setting the scene. Yes, our couch is comfortable – the deep seats on it are SO fantastic. But, why not spruce it up a little bit with some extra pillows and fun touches? Adding a few fluffy patterned pillows makes it feel like an entirely new seating area.
But I’m not done there. How about some ambiance? Bring in some candles or other soft lighting to create your at-home movie experience and get your zen-like space on! I pulled in some of my favorite lanterns with battery powered candles that give off the perfect amount of glow when the room is dim.
Of course you’re not done there! A movie and dessert are necessary for the mix, and I was able to snag the perfect duo: Häagen-Dazs® ice cream and a movie from Redbox®. This is literally one of my all time favorite things to do – cuddle up on the couch in my pajamas, scoop myself some delicious ice cream, and pop in a movie that I picked up at Redbox®. When it involves the candlelight, the comfy couch, and being with the one I love it truly elevates the occasion and allows me to sit back, clear my mind, and simply ENJOY the moment. It is so easy to get caught up in the everyday hustle and bustle: taking a moment to pause, appreciate, and enjoy life is something I really want to continue to put on my to-do list. Plus, any time I can take to put my feet up and rest from an active day is another plus!
It happened to work out perfectly that we needed to purchase two different Häagen-Dazs® ice cream products. Although Justin and I like many of the same things, we do differ in our taste for ice cream treats. He loves nutty options like butter pecan, but I am always drawn to coffee ice cream! Thankfully, we each picked up our own pint to work on so there would be no fighting!
What was even BETTER is that we were able to snag our 2 Häagen-Dazs® ice cream products at Walmart and we earned a free movie night from Redbox®! All we had to do was text “Redbox” to 35350 for instructions on how to submit our receipt – we received our code for the free movie night a few minutes later. Easy peasy!!!!
Now, I have to ask: does it get any better than a movie and dessert??? I think not!
Which Häagen-Dazs® ice cream flavor would YOU pick to enjoy during your movie night at home?
