Happy Friday! Did you know today was National Popcorn Day? Well if not, now you do! Truth be told, I didn’t know about it either, but as soon as I found out about it, I decided to change one of my upcoming Valentine’s day post and make it today instead.
I’m a huge fan of red velvet. In fact earlier this week I made some red velvet waffles, I had leftover batter, so it was the perfect time for me to attempt a few other red velvet recipes.
Making this particular type of popcorn was a little bit of a hassle. I burned the white chocolate twice and the popcorn sort of caught fire. I had to wait a day and regroup so that I could get this right. Thinking back on it now, I believe I was trying to do too much at one time and just got caught up.
I’d been promising the kids for about a week that we were going to finish our Star Wars movie marathon. We’ve gotten through 4 of the movies, we have 5 more to go. We just finished Rogue One and they absolutely loved it. It’s by far the BEST Star Wars movie out to date. So this weekend we will tackle the original three. I have a feeling the kids aren’t going to be too fond of the graphics, but we shall see.
Do you have a favorite Star Wars movie? I know a lot of people feel Revenge of the Sith was the worst Star Wars movie, but I really liked it. It took about 10 years to grow on me, but once I finally sat down and watched it a few years ago, I began to really love the movie.
As you know we are HUGE Star Wars fans, so whenever I get the chance to talk about the movie I can. Have you seen our Storm Trooper Training Exercises? Be sure to check it out! Also, tomorrow Jedi Training Exercises for Kids will go live and soon I’ll post a Dark Side Exercises.
