Enjoying Date Night At Home

I’d like to thank G.H. Cretors for sponsoring this post. Opinions are my own.

Ladies, do you ever look at your Facebook feed and feel like the only person not having a date night that week?

Sure, getting out of the house with your partner is great, but, with our busy schedules and THE KIDS, it can be tough. It’s why I love creating a special date night at home as often as I can. You can definitely create a fun and relaxing date night experience right there on your own sofa!

Of course, you need a few things to make the night more fun and delicious. Pull up a comfy seat, grab a soft blanket, pop in a hit movie and bring a big bowl of G.H. Cretors popcorn!

This bowl of G.H. Cretors The Mix (cheddar cheese and caramel popcorn, mixed), is what my husband and I had on hand last night for our movie date night.

Honestly, I never would have thought of mixing cheddar cheese popcorn with caramel corn, but wow! It gives you that perfect marriage of salty and sweet in every bite. I joked with my husband that The Mix is a lot like us. I’m super sweet and he’s just cheesy. Ha! :)

Did you know that G.H. Cretors popcorn roots date back to the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago, where the very first commercial popcorn maker was unveiled by Charles Cretors? This company’s history just amazes me.

Today, the G.H. Cretors passion for obsessively delicious popcorn continues, with all popcorn varieties made with high-quality, real ingredients, like premium aged cheddar cheese, at the G.H. Cretors facility in Waukegan, Illinois. Their popcorn is also gluten-free and contains no GMO’s. How cool is that?

You really can’t beat a snack that’s made from quality ingredients and tastes amazing. It’s why I’m in love with G.H. Cretors.

I’m sure that my husband and I aren’t the only couple who struggle to find time for date night.

To be honest, we sort of neglected this time together for a few years while the kids were little, but now I make an effort to create some special time together alone at home even when we can’t hit the town together.

We used to love to go to the movies together when we were dating, but we definitely prefer watching movies at home these days. It’s so great to cozy-up next to the person you love and crack jokes or even cry together while watching a great film.

Having the perfect bowl of yummy popcorn between us doesn’t hurt, either.
