Spook Movie with Spooky Snacks cont..

This dessert is another easy snack for you and your boo to whip up on a movie night.  It only involved three ingredients; white chocolate, strawberries and mini chocolate chips. When Halloween comes around, ghosts are a symbol which mean that ghost decorations and costumes will be everywhere. This dessert can be something fun for the both of you, if you make it fun! Some movies that can go along with this theme of a ghost treat can be The Conjuring, The Shining or The Sixth Sense. « STRAWBERRY GHOSTS » INGREDIENTS 1 (16 oz) package Vanilla CANDIQUIK Coating 24 Fresh strawberries Mini chocolate chips DIRECTIONS Melt Candiquik in tray according to directions on package.

Wild, Wild Love

Sometimes, staying in is something you both do way too much and want to get out to see a movie – you know, a change of environment! The closest movie theater, other than the Whitewater movie theater that plays three movies, is the Wildwood Theaters in Janesville. It’s only a 25 minute drive and offers over 16 movies! Recently, I did some research for what is playing in the theater that I would recommend for a date night. Now, I have not seen every movie at the movie theater to share with couples what movie they should go see and why. Going to a movie and figuring out for yourselves if you think you will like it or not and at the end, deciding how great it was, gives you something to talk about! It gives you some information about what kind of movies either of you prefer to watch “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” This action packed, humorous film will leave you on the edge of your seats! – Now that’s what I was thinking when I only viewed the trailer. Not only do you see how action-packed the trailer is, you also notice who’s in the film. You have Colin Firth, Taron Egerton and the best yet, Channing Tatum. This movie is a win, win for the both of you. It’s a thriller with attractive men in it – best combo in a movie if I do say so myself. “Spider-Man: Homecoming” Spider-Man has been the movie that keeps on coming. There’s a new one every few years with multiple main characters as Peter Parker, but this one...

Netflix & Chill

A movie night has always been an option in my books for a date night. You have dinner and watch a movie after – It’s the perfect way to spend a night with your boyfriend/girlfriend. The only problem is what do you watch?? There are so many different movies on Netflix that sometimes, you just can’t decide together on a happy medium. A few choices that I have seen and am recommending with maybe help you both decide what to watch on a night in.   The Classic – “Tommy Boy” “Tommy Boy” stars Chris Farley from Saturday Night Life.. What information do you need? Tommy and Richard, two characters that we have learned and grow to love from the movie “Tommy Boy”. It’s the perfect classic movie for any night in, depending on your humor. It’s a stupid humor with a hint of drama just to keep you engaged. It’s one of my all time favorite movie classics that shares a story about friendship, family and love. It’s a happy medium for you and your boyfriend because although it’s not a complete romance movie, it’s about the humorous adventure the character’s share. But what’s a humorous movie with a little romance, right?     The Romance – “Leap Year” “Leap Year” is a romance movie that I highly recommend to anyone searching on Netflix for a heart-warming love story. Not only is it romantic, there’s also a lot of smart-ass remarks from both the main characters, which will make it fun for YOU both to laugh about! Fate has brought these two characters together, and their adventure is...
