We stumbled across this movie and it is just darling.  If you have any soccer players in your home, this is for you!

Alex & Me features real-life soccer star Alex Morgan as herself in a story of a young player trying to find her way.  I love that it's rated G, but definitely not something my kiddos would consider a "baby movie."  You can rent it on Amazon Video here or buy the DVD here.


I was excited to roll out my turf I bought for my Father's Day Brownie Sundae Bar.  It was a perfect "tablecloth" for this movie night.


I didn't want to put a dirty soccer ball on the table, but my son's jerseys made a fitting addition to the centerpiece.


Soccer ball plates and paper napkins tied around the flatware with a little ribbon finish out the table.


No movie night is complete without an after-dinner treat.  We just love mixing popcorn and Caramel M&M's for that delightful salty and sweet combo.  A friend gave me these Kate Spade popcorn bowls for Christmas.  Aren't they cute?


This little gem of a movie is fun for boys and girls alike, and suitable for all ages.  In other words, it's a winning strategy for a successful family movie night!
