Movie night isn’t movie night without amazing snacks. Making Easy S’Mores and Taco Meatballs is a sure way to have movie night be a hit!

Fun Family Movie Night!

Sometimes you just need to celebrate right? Well, thanks to not spending all of my tax refund dollars on a phone upgrade – THANKS Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan and my new Samsung Galaxy On5 I am CELEBRATING!  I love my new phone, I love my phone plan, and I wanted to celebrate with my family! Keep reading I’m going to talk about making Family Movie Night extra fun, using your tax refund money wisely and just giving yourself a reason to celebrate!

I’m in LOVE with my new Samsung Galaxy On5 that I bought at Walmart (to use with Walmart Family Mobile Plus). I was also in love with the price! Regular Price? $119 – which is awesome…want to hear something more awesome? It’s on Rollback for $69.00! I purchased the phone and the required SIM Kit to activate ($19.88) for UNDER $100! Since Family Mobile bills you later, you only have to pay $19.88 when you sign up. You guys you can’t beat that!

Not only is my new phone a completely reasonable price (I didn’t spend all my tax refund in one purchase – I WIN!), but my Walmart Family Mobile Plus plan is amazing and completely in my budget. I get  Unlimited* Talk, Text, & Data and a free movie credit on VUDU every month ($7 value) for $49.88 per month, per line. HELLO! That’s amazing right? (*Includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE† data then 2G)

My service is truly great and I’m so happy that I get a VUDU movie that I save every month for Family Movie Night at home with my kiddos (This is why I have a smart tv right?) Since we do Family Movie Night once a month I wanted to make this month special – I’m celebrating not being broke at the end of buying a new phone! How did I make it special? Let’s get to it!

Instead of JUST having some popcorn (don’t worry we had some but that wasn’t it) I decided to whip out some decorations and make this a true party for my boys and me! If your kids (and husband) are like mine, some fun themed decorations and some fun snacks make for a true party. I’m not kidding you guys. I put ice and lemon in a glass of water and call it party water and my boys are in – they love it. So keep it simple – we are celebrating, not going broke!

I put out our “fancy” decorations and put out some of our favorite snacks. Then I made two delish (and easy) recipes and an amazing Family Movie Night was born. You guys know me – it doesn’t have to take days to get ready for a fun party. We did this party with just our family, but easy decorations, easy recipes can be done for any party!

Easy S'mores

My first EASY recipe is Easy S’Mores. I don’t have a fire pit, so S’mores are always hard to come by – and my kids LOVE THEM! This is a perfect Movie Night Snack – and so fun!

Easy S'mores 1

All you need to make Easy S’Mores is:

  • Graham Crackers
  • Chocolate Bars
  • Marshmallow Fluff

Simple spread fluff on 2 pieces of graham crackers and place a piece of chocolate bar on top of one piece. Combine into a sandwich.
