Last night, B was feeling a bit under the weather, and I was in the mood for pajamas and pizza. So we agreed to spend a cozy night in, watching movies on the projector and eating (way too much) junk food. To accompany our impromptu slumber party, we also decided to build a tent.
Luckily, B is a very skilled tent-builder, as living room camping is a favorite pastime of ours. B expertly created an impressive canopy of blankets, pillows, and sheets. We both helped decorate the tent with some leftover Christmas lights. Decorating soon turned into playing, as we are way too easily amused by bright and shiny things. The finishing touch to our tent was the mattress, which we decided to drag into the living room at the last minute. So not only were we indulging in pizza – we were indulging in pizza, in bed, in a tent. Deliciously naughty! Our indoor tent also served as a personal drive-in movie theater. Tucked inside, we were conveniently positioned right in front of the projector. We caught up on Suits, watched some Family Guy, and then projected stars onto the wall. We spent the night in the living room, snuggled in our cozy homemade den.
An indoor tent would be a great surprise for Valentine’s Day – it’s romantic and fun – an intimate, creative way to spend a night with your favorite person!!
