Friday is movie night at our house.

And it’s becoming a production. It starts with takeout—we rotate who gets to pick (because mediating the inevitable disagreement between two kiddos does not make for a happy Mama) and then we pile up on my bed and watch a movie (also picked by the lucky “featured” family member that week.)

My son has already picked out our movie for this week…

SING!

When we saw this in theaters it inspired MANY sing-and-dance performances by my children for the following weeks.

I’m expecting their love of this show and the songs to evolve into downright obsession.

This movie was so sweet and so fun and warmed my mom heart so much with its messages—be brave, be yourself, never give up—it’s the trifecta of inspirational stories

I guess I’m pretty excited for Friday night too.

You can pick up your copy of the Sing Special Edition and giggle through three new mini movies and a bunch of musical extras. For the love of pete, this movie has over 65 songs in it! Plus a new song by Stevie Wonder (featuring Ariana Grande.)

You can also win a copy from us at the end of this post!

Since my kids are so pumped, I’m going to up the ante on our Friday movie night tradition and break out a special snack.

I’m calling them Buster’s Moon Pie Muddy Buddies, in honor of our favorite koala/theater owner/musical visionary, Buster Moon, and my favorite chocolate marshmallow combo.

And since I don’t want my kids to start the movie without me, this snack has to come together quick.

Easy enough!
