Home Best Movie Night Ever
The Attic Kid has been chomping at the bit to see this movie since forever it seems.  Every time we've seen the commercial she has commented that she HAS to see that.  So she's literally bouncing off the walls in anticipation of watching Home.  (I have a feeling I may need to scrape her off the ceiling at some point.  She is THAT excited!)

The Longest Ride Date Night Recipes & More #InsidersLongestRide #sponsored

7/29/15
I received The Longest Ride items for a home date night as a Fox Insider.  All opinions are my own.


This past weekend Attic Guy and I had a fun Longest Ride themed date night at home thanks to Fox Entertainment.  It's been a while since we have been able to kick back and relax and watch a romantic movie together so this was a nice treat!


The Longest Ride Date Night

We received a Longest Ride bag of goodies for the perfect date night including popcorn, seasonings, and the blu-ray.  

The Longest Ride Date Night


Once the kiddos were finally in bed, we prepared our snacks.  We were both a bit tired after a long day with the girls, so we kept it simple.  Attic guy made some Strawberry Daquiris in the blender, we microwaved our Orville popcorn bowls, added some delicious cheddar cheese seasonings and butter (I kept my plain because of my low-fat diet), and tried a flavor of Chex Mix we'd never had before.

The Longest Ride Date Night



Then it was time to kick up our feet and watch The Longest Ride.  (We didn't even clean up the toys.  You moms of little ones know how it is!)

I haven't read the book yet, so I didn't know the story line beforehand.  It has two love stories intertwined; one current and one from the 1940's during WWII.   Cowboys, bull-riding, romance, love and loss and art...I really enjoyed the plot and of course, it made me tear up like only Nicholas Sparks can do.  

The Longest Ride Date Night


It has a PG 13 rating but I personally wouldn't allow my teenager to watch it due to the pretty graphic "partial" nudity.  This probably would have been rated R when I was growing up.  It's definitely a movie for adults.


Fox Home ENtertainmentWant to have a date night at home yourself?  The Longest Ride is available now on Blu-ray and DVD so you can grab the movie and pick up these snacks with the Target app.  And check out these fun recipes below to add a little pizazz!

When Calls the Heart: Trials of the Heart DVD #sponsored #Hearties

7/24/15
Thank you to Edify Media for giving me a review copy of When Calls the Heart: Trials of the Heart.  This post contains affiliate links.

When Calls the Heart Trials of the Heart

Are you a fan of the series on the Hallmark Channel called When Calls the Heart?   I am a HUGE #Heartie and am so excited that Season 2 is coming to DVD!  

In case you need to catch up on Season 1, here are the DVD's in order:

When Calls the Heart (debut movie)
When Calls the Heart:  Lost & Found
When Calls the Heart: A Telling Silence
When Calls the Heart:  The Dance
When Calls the Heart: Second Chances
When Calls the Heart: Change of Heart
When Calls the Heart: Rules of Engagement 


When Calls the Heart: Trials of the Heart is now available with exclusive behind the scenes interviews and continues where Season 1 left off.

Synopsis:


From celebrated author Janette Oke (The Love Comes Softly series) comes a rigorous and romantic adventure as epic as the wide frontier. Erin Krakow (Army Wives), Daniel Lissing (Eye Candy) and Lori Laughlin (Full House, 90210) star in When Calls The Heart, “a beautiful story with roots in relationships, self-empowerment, and the enduring power of love” (Common Sense Media).

Elizabeth Thatcher (Krakow) is an independent, strong-willed teacher who has foregone the life of the big city and found a job, a home – and romance with a handsome Mountie named Jack – in the small frontier town of Coal Valley. But when she learns that her mother has taken ill, she returns to Hamilton, her hometown, with Jack as her escort.

Once in the comparably opulent Hamilton, Elizabeth and Jack are confounded by Jack’s ne’er-do-well brother and Elizabeth’s former suitor, Charles Kensington. But it is Elizabeth’s father, William, who drives a wedge between them when he suggests to Jack that Charles would be a better match for his well-bred daughter.




When Elizabeth needs to return home to help with her mother's illness, things become a whole lot interesting.  We see a new side to Elizabeth as her "city society girl" role becomes more apparent.  And her relationship with Jack becomes more complicated as Elizabeth is drawn back into a friendship with her former suitor Charles {classic love triangle, who will she choose?}    To add to the mix, Jack's brother comes into town and stirs up a little trouble. 

We also get to see the trial surrounding the mining disaster in full swing.  I enjoyed seeing a female lawyer representing the widows who has a lot of spunk and determination!  It reminded me of one of other favorite series Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman.  I love seeing women in that time period that bucked convention!

It's a great start to season 2 and I look forward to the release of more episodes to DVD so I can watch the season over again.  {Why do we have to wait so long for Season 3?  Sigh.}

Date Night with The Longest Ride #TheLongestRide #sponsored

7/15/15
I will receive a Longest Ride date night kit as a Fox Home Insider.  All opinions are my own.
The Longest Ride Movie


Date night.  Two words that are so important when it comes to connecting with your significant other or spouse.  With busy work schedules, babies and kids, it can be tough to find time to have a date night.  Most of our dates are "date-night-in" since we usually don't have the funds for a sitter or family close by.  We also have to schedule our date night time for when the kids have gone to bed and there are no work obligations.  So we look forward to that precious time when it's just the two of us!


The Longest Ride Date Night

I'm very excited about our upcoming Longest Ride themed date night this weekend!  My hubby has been working some crazy hours so it will be nice to kick back, relax, and watch this romantic movie based on the novel by Nicholas Sparks.  I am a huge fan of Nicholas Sparks and haven't seen this movie yet so it's perfect for our date-night-in!
 
The Longest Ride Date Night

We will receive The Longest Ride date night tote including all we need for the perfect date night thanks to Fox Entertainment.  

Our date night pack will include these goodies:

*The Longest Ride blu-ray
*Orville Redenbacher popcorn
*Kernel seasonings
*Chex Mix
*Autographed copy of The Choice by Nicholas Sparks 


I love me some popcorn!  Orville Redenbacher's popcorn is perfect for movie nights or making fun recipes with the family.  Kernel Season's is the leader in popcorn-seasoning with even more flavors and on-shelf innovation; I can't wait to try some!  And just like we mix and mingle, so do the different tastes and textures in Chexmix (one of my hubby's faves).  Are you hungry yet?


 All of these goodies are available at Target so you can have the perfect romantic date night too or host a girl's night with your friends!  Even better, these items are accompanied by the Target Cartwheel offers.  Visit the Target Cartwheel app and look for additional savings on all of these great items.

Check out the Longest Ride perfect date night items at Target.com where you can order online, have it delivered to your home, or pick it up in the store the same day.
