Happy Friday y’all! Who’s ready for a laid back weekend and a little relaxing? This girl!!! Tonight Joshua gets home from his conference {yay, miss that guy} and we have no plans but to relax and watch a movie! Recently, my girl Hillary of Hillheady shared her favorite Summer movies and it had be thinking, what are mine? Obviously there were a couple that came to mind but after thinking on it for a bit, I had a LONG list. Therefore, I decided to take a cue from Hillary and share some of my favorites. Maybe inspire a summer movie night for you!

After a day out in the sun lounging by the pool, enjoying a BBQ with friends, or day drinking a casual night at home watching one of your favorite movies is a must. So grab some popcorn, twizzlers, snocaps, and stream one of these movies! These are my top ten favorite, although they really aren’t in any particular order because that’d be far too hard. Though, I can say The Notebook and Blue Crush are at the top of my list. P.S. what are your go to movie snacks? The three I listed above are definitely mine. Stovetop popcorn though, not movie theater popcorn. High maintenance, I know haha!

    My husband and I were JUST talking about how he’s never seen Dirty Dancing! Definitely one of the best for the summer. We are going to have to remedy that soon!
