Around here, Friday night is movie night.  It's something we look forward to all week.  The start of a new school year inspired this movie selection, Teacher's Pet

I always decorate the house a little for "back to school" so I pulled from those items for the table.  I love the thought of freshly-sharpened pencils, new school supplies, and the primary colors associated with a new school year.  Teacher supply stores are a great place to find decorations like this.  I think my little school bus flower pot is from Zulily.

These pencils are actually Christmas ornaments that live in my school decor stash.

As for the movie, it was a silly one.  The kids loved it.  It's not exactly destined to be a cherished family favorite, but fit the bill for a relaxing movie night after our first week back in the grind.  We all got a kick out of it!

In the coming weeks I'll share how I plan our movie nights, find family-friendly movies, and why it's so important to us.  Spoiler alert... it's all about keeping it simple and fun.
