It is not a secret that I am a true crime junkie and can binge a good story in one day. It is a guilty pleasure of mine part of my self care routine. (hey, I never said I was normal!)
I know there are a lot of true crime lovers out there like me and I know the feeling once you finish your favorite podcast. It is the same feeling you have when you finish your favorite book or binged a really good Netflix series.
You need more.
I am sharing with you my favorite true crime podcasts so you can keep your binge going all summer long.
This is the true crime podcasts of all true crime podcasts in my opinion. There are many episodes with a lot of the stories you have never heard before. It’s a mix of all, serial killers, unsolved mysteries and famous murders.
Another one of my favorite podcasts. The stories are a roller coaster and they leave out the real gory details. This podcast is like hanging out with your girlfriends who talk mom stuff and true crime- my favorite!
Once you have a movie night in your backyard, you are not going to watch movies any other way! This is a fun and safe way to spend time with friends and family all summer long.
Summer is officially here at The Robins Nest and that means we are outside more than we are inside.
Movie theaters may not be an option to see a new movie right now, but you can still watch it on the big screen by throwing an epic movie night in your backyard.
There are a few essentials that you need, such as a movie screen. If you have a white wall like the side of your garage that is all you need. If not you can purchase a white shower liner from Dollar Tree or you can purchase an outdoor projection screen here.
You need a projector to show your movie and this mini projector is the perfect size.
If you want great sound for your movie, you will need these rock speakers. They are meant for the outdoors and they hook up via Bluetooth which means easy setup.
Lounge chairs and hammocks are ideal, but your little ones are going to want be front and center. Make sure you have an outdoor blanket for them to lay on during the show.
It’s not movie night without snacks! Candy and sweets are a must but how you make your popcorn is up to you. If you are the microwave type this bundle is perfect. If you are more of an outdoor over the fire type be sure to grab some Jiffy Pop or this outdoor popcorn popper set.
These variety pack of snacks are a great deal! Just put them in a caddy from Dollar Tree and pass it around!
When the sun goes down the bugs come out. Smell fresh and repel those mosquitoes with the effective insect repellent spray.
Fun pajamas are a must for your movie night. Your little ones may want to dressed like the theme of the movie or they may want something with an outdoors theme. Check out these cute pj’s that are camping themed and snack themed just to get an idea.
This summer is going to look different so we need to continue being creative at home. Whether you are looking for a family night, time with friends, or a date for two this outdoor movie night will sure be a hit!
This year Mother’s Day May be a little different. You have probably felt more like a failure of a mom more than ever before.
Every year I say this, but this year I really mean it- we should be celebrating moms every day, not just one.
Gifts won’t make up for what is going on in the world right now, but it can’t make it worse so why not get what you want this year. Treat yourself too while your at it because I am sharing affordable gifts you can just pick one!
No matter what your Mother’s Day is like, I hope you enjoy it to the best of your ability and know that you are doing an amazing job, mama!
