So I have a little confession....my birthday is tomorrow!! Over the years I've always been asked, "Don't you just hate having your birthday two days before Christmas?" But the truth is, I absolutely love it! Everyone is already so festive and in the mood to celebrate that my birthday has always felt like a part of the celebration. 

One of my absolute favorite things to do with my family for my birthday is curl up on the couch and make it a movie night that we can enjoy. There is nothing more relaxing then the twinkle of the Christmas tree lights, a warm snuggly blanket, and yummy snacks as we get to enjoy a great movie. 

So for my birthday, that is exactly what I wanted to do! 

I ran over to Walmart to pick up the Movie Night package so that I could enjoy their VUDU promotion at the moment and share some much needed quality time with my hubby. What is the Movie Night package and VUDU promotion you ask?? Well I'm glad you did because I would not want you to miss out on it!

First you need to head to your local Walmart between 12/22/15 through 2/2/16 and purchase Orville Redenbacher, a six pack Coca-Cola product, M&M'S® Chocolate Candies, and a great Sony Video, like the new movie War Room. Next, simply take a picture of the receipt with all four products listed on it. And finally upload it to uploadreceipt.com/movienight, no later than 2/9/16, and you will receive a $10 off movie code by email to Vudu (*while supplies last, limit 1 per person), a great Video on Demand community organized by Walmart!

I started by grabbing my delicious snacks off the Walmart shelves. I picked up a box of the Orville Redenbacher Movie Theater Popcorn in the popcorn and chip isle, these fun M&M'S® Chocolate Candies containers that I found by the registers, a six pack of Coke Zero in the soda isle, and the War Room movie by Sony Pictures.

I knew War Room would be the perfect movie to watch with my hubby because it is about how God restores marriages. We had already seen this movie in the theaters and I could not rave about it enough! Priscilla Shirer is one of my absolute favorite preachers. I've seen her live at a Christian conference years ago and the anointing God has on her life is undoubtedly beautiful! Listening to her talk is like listening to a best friend and when I saw she was going to be the lead actress in this new movie I just had to see it.

War Room made me laugh, cry, and realize the constant need for continuous pray in my life. Please go check out this film. Trust me, you will not regret it. It is the perfect family movie night film!

Before I could get into watching the movie though, I made some yummy treats with the snacks I picked up. I combined them for two fun recipes. One in which my husband has deemed movie time "crack" because he literally could not get enough of it! (We basically ate the entire bowl in one sitting lol)

Ingredients needed:

Orville Redenbacher Popcorn
Your favorite M&M'S® Chocolate Candies
Meltable chocolate
Sea Salt
Your favorite Coca-Cola Product
Vanilla Ice Cream

The first thing you are going to do is melt down your chocolate in a double boiler. If you don't have a double boiler you can easily make one by placing a glass bowl over a boiling pot of water. Make sure the water is not touching the glass bowl in any way. This is mainly for the steam created.

Once your chocolate is melted, place your Orville Redenbacher popcorn in the microwave to pop. Once it's ready, spread it out on a cookie sheet that has wax or parchment paper on it. 

Sprinkle your favorite M&M'S® Chocolate Candies throughout the popcorn on the cookie sheet.

Take the melted chocolate and drizzle it all over the popcorn and M&M'S® Chocolate Candies, as heavy or as lightly as you prefer.

Finally, sprinkle the sea salt over it all and place it in the fridge to chill for at least 20 minutes.

While that is spending time chilling, you can move on to the Coca-Cola floats! This is a fun twist on an old classic. 

Simply scoop your ice cream into your cup of choice. Then pour your favorite Coca-Cola product over top. (For me its Coke Zero!) Then drizzle the rest of your warmed chocolate over the float and add a few M&M'S® Chocolate Candies on top! 

These floats were not only delicious, but paired perfectly with the Popcorn Crunch recipe as well! 

Spending quality time snuggling up with my family for a movie night is the perfect way to celebrate my birthday! I'm so excited that God has blessed me with the years and seasons He has on this earth and I pray for many more to come, celebrating with those I love. War Room was a fantastic choice for movie night so don't forget to grab a copy of this awesome film!
