Movie Nights

I don't know about you, but I had a great time in college-especially my freshman year. My roomate and I met some great friends and we all spent a lot of time together. One thing we loved to do was have movie nights in our dorm room on the weekends. We would all gather our movies and stay up all night watching them and talking. It was quite a site with people all over the floor and beds and...well we won't get into that. Just kidding! We had good clean fun and then we would spend the whole next day sleeping. :-) Looking back now, I don't know how I ever did those long nights of movie watching. I have a hard time staying awake through 1 movie now that we start watching at 8:00!

I know I can never get my college days back, but with a subscription to Netflix and a Roku Player, I could attempt to get those old movie nights back! The Roku player allows you to get movies directly from Netflix online and watch them instantly on your TV. How cool is that! And with a selection of over 12,000 movies and TV episodes, there would be no reason that I couldn't create movie nights with Rich and the kids. I'm sure the site in our house would be quite different than my old dorm room. Rich and I would both be passed out with 2 little ones sleeping in our arms...not quite the same as in college, but a lot more special :-)

Tanya over at Mommy Goggles is hosting a great giveaway where you can win a 6 month unlimited subscription to Netflix and a Roku Player to make movie watching super easy! Head on over to see how to win movie nights for your family!

I am like you. If I start watching a movie at 8pm I'm asleep halfway through it. I used to stay up late when I was in college too. Don't know how I did it either.
