Be sure to have some treats for the occasion, like our Gooey Almond and Coconut Chex Mix.6. Find out what tourist attractions are in your city and spend the night acting like tourists—don’t forget to take lots of cheesy pictures!

We always find ourselves on Friday and Saturday nights wondering what to do and trying to decide until it’s too late and we don’t do anything. Have a camp out in the living room, eat treats, and watch a movie. Go to a bakery and pick out a favorite treat, then talk a walk.
