movie night with the girls!

last week, i hosted a little girl's movie night. it was SO FUN & couldn't have been easier to do:

first, i sent an email/text to a few good friends to find a good night for everyone.

then, i pulled out all my best chick flick dvds. i knew how accommodating / indecisive we'd all be trying to decide which one to watch, so i decided to make it a democratic process and have voting on my chalkboard. a "heart" was for a movie you'd be excited to watch and an "x" was for a movie you'd recently seen/weren't in the mood for. the goal was to find the movie that had the most hearts and no x's! father of the bride was the winner! we were quoting it all night long... goodness i love franc.

finally, i pulled together some super simple snacks: sour patch kids, strawberries, break and bake chocolate chip cookies & puppy chow (chex cereal, peanut butter, chocolate chip cookies & powdered sugar). we pulled out some bottles of wine & our pile of favorite blankets to relax with. i wanted people to really feel at home in our family room.

one of my favorite moments was when one of the girls walked in, saw the spread of snacks and exclaimed "we should do this every night!" we'll definitely be doing it again soon.
