FYI Friday (on Saturday) Popcorn, movies and Pay it Forward

So I've missed a couple of FYI Fridays, and even though it's Saturday, this edition of FYI Friday is worth it! ;)

1. National Popcorn Day is on Sunday! That little piece of info in and of itself should satisfy you! Ohhh how wonderful that someone created that day! I mean, I celebrate that day frequently--after the kiddos are in bed, but what fun to make a "thing" of it! Have you ever tried lemon pepper on your popcorn?? My mom, sister and I can devour a bowl of lemon pepper popcorn in no time flat!! Delish!! But I'm also a fan of popcorn with Milk Duds poured in! I air-pop my popcorn, put a little butter and salt on it and then top with Milk Duds. Perfection! Also FYI, there's a candy store in Overton Square, Sweet Noshings, and the Muddy Buddy flavor of popcorn is supposed to be to die for. I haven't been yet, but it's on my agenda!

2. And speaking of popcorn, the Academy Award nominations came out this week. If you haven't been around here long, here's a little tid-bit, FYI. I LOVE movies! Oscar night is my fave TV night of the year! So, now that the nominations are out, we will try to see some of the Oscar nominated movies so we can make educated picks for our family's Oscar pool. Here are the Best Picture nominees in case you haven't had time to find out. . ."12 Years a Slave", "American Hustle", "Captain Phillips", "Dallas Buyers Club", "Gravity", "Her", "Nebraska", "Philomena", "The Wolf of Wall Street". After a date night last night, we've now seen two of them. Have you?

3. And speaking of awards, how about doing something for someone and NOT getting an award? It is Pay it Forward weekend this weekend! Apparently it's the 2nd annual PIF weekend. I had no idea, but now that I do, I love it!! Brainstorming what we can do!! Any of you doing a random act of kindness this weekend? Or maybe you've been a recipient of a random act of kindness?

4. And speaking of cuteness---was I speaking of cuteness? Maybe not, but now I am. . .Baby Way is now a forward-facing car rider!! He loves the view!!

And now, you are up to speed! 
Now, go!! Do a random act of kindness AND eat some popcorn!

I love this! I've never tried lemon pepper popcorn but Kyle loves lemon pepper so that's something I just may need to surprise him with on Oscar night!

Anyways, I wanted to let you know about Operation Tucci started by my brother-in-law and his friend in memory of their friend who was killed downtown. It's a Pay-it-Forward type of movement I thought you might be interested in:

Have a great weekend,
