Popcorn & Pillow Forts

Before we get started, you should know that today’s post is sponsored by Pop Secret, but my love for their popcorn is all my own!

Is anyone else getting sick of being cooped up inside? We would kill for even 40 degrees here in Rochester, because when it feels like 7, I certainly don't have a ton of motivation to leave the house. And due to my lack of motivation, we've been spending a lot more time at home than normal. Ella is typically content to play with her toys, read her books, and watch her shows... but by Sunday evening we were really starting to run out of steam. Thus... I decided we needed to... 

create a magical pillow fort! 

I asked Ella if she wanted to build one & despite having no idea what I was talking about, she was totally on board. I think she trusts me, but the real selling point was when I told her that every magical pillow fort needs popcorn

We started out simple, just laying a few blankets down & creating some walls with pillows. Ella loved it & I was thinking, "oh that was easy!" Then, Eric showed up & scoffed as my simple fort. Thus... this happened. 

Charlie is sniffing out the popcorn trail... 
He is apparently "an expert fort builder" and totally took over. I will admit, it was probably slightly more magical, but Ella didn't really care because she was just totally absorbed with her popcorn & Mickey Mouse Clubhouse... 

I think my whole family would agree that Pop Secret is your perfect snack companion on trips into the uncharted reaches of your imagination. Pop Secret knows that fun, like popcorn, is better when it’s shared. Send Pop Secret your pillow fort stories and pictures on Facebook. You can upload them right to the Pop Secret timeline and tag them with #PopSecretForts. Who knows... they might just share a little something back! Oh... and there's an awesome $1 off coupon that you can find on their Facebook page too! So get poppin'!
