Movie Night: The Miracle Season

Movie NightAmy WileyComment

Happy Friday! This movie night features a sweet tearjerker, and the easiest dinner ever. Sounds great, right?


The Miracle Season is based on a true story about a high school girls’ volleyball team trying to continue their season after going through a tragic loss. This movie is sweet, touching and emotional. You’ll find yourself tearing up and cheering for the team. Perhaps our favorite part was the closing credits where you see photos and video of the real-life people and events that inspired the movie.


Our local party store didn’t have much when it came to volleyball, but I picked up these napkins and put them with checked plates.  We recently ended up with a stash of a few blue disposable tablecloths, so I put one on our kitchen island and it worked well.  Now that I’ve seen the movie, I can tell you the team colors are green and yellow, so you could always go that route.


We didn’t have time for an elaborate dinner this time around, but it worked out just fine.  We did take-and-bake pizza, cookie brownie bars from a mix, and Gatorade because… sports.  The most important part is setting aside the family time and that’s why we live love our movie night tradition.


I recommend this movie for families, even though we shed a few tears. The cookie brownie bars sure helped us feel better!

Happy movie night, friends!
