My favorite day of the year is coming up. Mother’s Day. It’s the day that Ayva and Terrence focus on me, and I feel so, so special. I can always count on flowers from Terrence and a sweet homemade gift from Ayva. Most importantly, I get to spend quality time with my two favorite people. As Ayva gets older, the presents are getting more sophisticated.
This year, Ayva has already asked what I wanted. She said that she would make me breakfast in bed, but I told her I think I’d rather have a movie date with her. You know, we could snuggle up on the couch, eating our favorite snacks, and laughing together over a funny movie. She thought that was a great idea, and offered to take care of all of the planning and set up by herself.
Ayva pulled out a little serving tray and loaded it up with tons of delicious snacks from CVS/pharmacy. We’ve been fans of their Gold Emblem and Gold Emblem Abound lines for awhile, and they make the perfect partner to a movie night. The bonus? They’re actually better for you than the typical super salty or sugary movie snacks that you get at the theater. There are delicious varieties of trail mix, nuts, and granola. Treats like the Fiji Apple and Blueberry Clusters are free from artificial preservatives and flavors, and Dark Chocolate and Sea Salt Nut Bar has 6 grams of protein per bar. Of course you can’t have movie night without popcorn, and the Heavenly Light Popcorn in varieties like Kettle Corn, White Cheddar Flavored, and Sea Salt ensure there’s something for everyone!
Skip the brunch and dinner crowds this year. Instead, ask for a movie night for Mother’s Day. You can stay at home, comfortable, and let your kids plan the evening for you. Head to CVS/pharmacy for tasty snacks, pick a flick on Netflix, and enjoy spending time in your robe, with the people who mean the most to you!
