coziest drive-in

By Nicole.

One of our favorite Summer activities is to pull out our projector and watch a movie outside! Drive-ins are hard to come by where we live but this is just as good, if not better because A. Free B. You’re near your fridge for endless snacks! We teamed up with Coleman to create the comfiest drive-in movie today and we’re happy to report that Target carries all of these items! If you use Target’s Cartwheel app you’ll get $10 off a purchase of $49 or more, too! Pretty sweet! Okay, onto the drive-in!Screen Shot 2017-05-11 at 7.19.41 PMBack the car into the driveway and project the movie onto the garage! It provides a nice flat white surface and doesn’t blow away.web1If you’re a renter you can use the side of your building easily, too! We use a projector we grabbed online and have loved it! Then inflate that air mattress and stick in your car or truck bed! This one is from Coleman’s Double High line and it is so comfortable! This is tried and true for camping, too!DSC_6628Pop that popcorn, grab your soda and snuggle into your sleeping bag and you’re set! This sleeping bag is Coleman’s CozyFoot 40 Degree Bag which has fleece lining in the foot area so its 25% warmer than the standard bag! Our feet are always freezing in our sleeping bags so we were excited to grab this bag and give our feet some extra warmth!

Do you have any family fun that seems to only happen in the Summer? We can’t wait for more movies, campfires, BBQing and lots of time cozy in these sleeping bags.

(Lost 3 inches on my waist so far!) Upping my water intake proves to be challenging, but Hint to the rescue!hint1Hint water is 100% natural, with no sugar or preservatives. It’s essentially water, with a Hint of flavor. Diet sweeteners give me a major headache and so does sugar in too much doses, but sometimes I gotta mix up the plain water routine. hint water To me Hint is all in the smell. I take a big deep breath of it and swig away and it’s so refreshing. hint waterThe 12 pack comes with four flavors too so I don’t have to get used to one. And as always the best part about making positive and healthy changes in my family is my kids eat and drink whatever is around so they’re getting more water too!
