Fall Backyard Popcorn Tasting

There have been lots of changes in out house since the little one arrived, but I still think it’s oh-so-important to do my best to feel myself as much as I possibly can. And for me, that’s making sure we are doing little things like celebrating this festive fall season. Now, let’s be real, I can barely take a shower, so there is no elaborate menu on hand, but I love implementing easy ideas like a simple popcorn tasting with Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP. Guest list?

I love the change of seasons though, it makes you appreciate every single night you get to spend outside, soaking up the warmer temps. This time of year in particular is wonderful. The chilly nights calls for long sleeves and jeans, but you are perfectly cozy sitting outside with the right layers. So I like to make any random night an occasion. And since I just so happen to be pushing 9 months pregnant - that always involves snacks like this yummy popcorn from Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP.
