I know for many that Back to School is in full swing now. Here in our home, we are two weeks out from when my girls go back to school. Therefore, we are doing all we can to enjoy the last that summer days have to offer.
We are Netflix subscribers here, as well. So, often we binge watch our favorites on Netflix together. Plus, it helps that recently we updated our living room seating options. The girls have a new favorite place to sit while binge watching Netflix. They snuggle into their Papasan chair with blanket and pillows. Our chair is large enough that we can all three fit in it, as well. Perfect place to spend some cozy mother-daughter time before the hustle and bustle that back to school will bring. My girls and I also love the Netflix show, Spirit Riding Free, which debuted Season 6 on August 17th.
What is Spirit Riding Free?
It is a family-friendly show set during the 19th century in the small town of Miradero, Texas. The main character is a 12-year-old girl named Lucky. Lucky recently relocated from the city. It is here now that she encounters a wild Kiger mustang named, Spirit. Spirit gets caught by wranglers and brought to be “broken” in Miradero. But Lucky bonds with Spirit and frees him.
From here, Lucky also meets two other young girls similar in age. These two girls are as follows: Pru and Abigail. Both girls also own horses. Together with their horses, the girls embark on adventures throughout the land.
The show teaches a bit of history, geography, as well as friendship and more. Definitely a great show for mothers and daughters to watch together. And again perfect timing for us with Season 6 to enjoy before Back to School is indeed back in session.
What about a perfect Back to School and Spirit Riding Free snack?
My girls and I love popcorn for binge TV and movie viewing. So to that end, I am happily stock up at my local Walmart Pop Secret Popcorn Family Size (12 ct.). Our favorite is the Movie Theater Butter, as well as Homestyle. It makes us feel like we are experiencing movie theater popcorn from the comfort of our own home with the excellent butter taste.
Plus, Pop Secret is delicious and a high-quality snack that people can feel good about sharing with their family. What can I say, but it is also a way fun way to celebrate life’s simple joys with friends and family.
Back to the perfect snack though.
Once again, we enjoy popcorn mixes when we watch TV and movies here. Since back to school is right around the corner, I made Back to School Alphabet Popcorn Snack Mix Recipe.

This looks so good! We always have a box of Pop Secret in our pantry. There’s nothing like a good snack and a Netflix binge. We will definitely try this one out. Love the pics of your adorable girls!!
Aw, thanks Candace and same here we always have Pop Secret in our pantry, too!! 🙂
I love mixes of sweet and salty like this!
Me, too Dara and love that we have this common, as well 🙂
Meredith Spidel says
Oh yum! I would like this snack as much as the kids 🙂
Same here as I totally enjoyed this as much as my girls did, too 🙂
William Holland says
My sister used to make something similar. She called it “Nuts and Bolts.” LOL I have no idea why.
Forest fire sky today, 94 degrees with no sun…miserable, miserable weather here.
So I wish you a better day on the east coast as we struggle to find good air to breathe.
What an awesome name and love that, Bill! Here in NY, it is actually quite comfortable. The humidity left us on Sunday. But supposed to get warm again towards the end of the week. Still hoping that the weather moderates for you very soon. Happy Tuesday now!!

Such an easy and delicious treat. I love melting chocolate and even caramel on our popcorn, but adding some candy to the mix makes it even better.
I love the idea of melting chocolate or caramel. But honestly even easier to just add regular chocolate or caramel without the extra step of melting 🙂
This looks so yummy, I probably wouldn’t share it with my kids!
LOL, Gail trust me I had a hard time sharing 😉
I think you already know that I love Pop Secret. And all of these goodies too! These are our favorite ingredients. Back to school mix, here we come!
I know we are totally twins on Pop Secret! And ya for Back to School mixes 🙂
Mary Leigh says
How fun?! Now I’m craving popcorn (and a movie night)! This is PERFECT for back to school!
Thanks Mary and hope you can try soon 🙂
Oh my gosh Liese is hooked on Spirit! Now she needs these snacks 🙂
Liese and my girls would get along perfectly! Hope you can make her these snacks now, too 🙂
Kenya G. Johnson says
Ha to us both writing about popcorn? So how long do you think this would keep? Like if I made a this recipe on Monday for Christopher to snack on thru Friday after school? It would be hard for me to stay out of it though.
I know I love that we both did. And this one actually held up with leftovers as we made more than enough for that. So, I think if you seal it in a Ziplock bag you should be fine saving it for a few days totally! 🙂
Aunt Gloria says
Al those popcorn mixes look yummy! I see Lily has lost her two front teeth! I’m sure the Tooth Fairy came to your house! xxoo
Thanks Aunt Gloria and yes the tooth fairy did indeed make a visit here xoxo 🙂

Your Snack mix looks like the perfect combinations. Nothing is better than chocolate and popcorn. When you add a little cheese to the mix with the Alphabet Letter Crackers it sounds even better.
I love your girls’ new chair. It looks so comfortable. I do not think I would ever want to move from that chair.
We are going to have to check out Spirit Riding FREE. It sounds great!
Aw, I hope you can check Spirit Riding Free very soon and thank you always, my sweet friend 🙂
The show looks fun, and the snack mix looks so good! (My kids are grown, so I had no idea there are alphabet crackers!) I love snack mixes with sweet and salty together. I popped in from Life with Lorelai. (Ha, just realized I said popped – how appropriate!) Thanks for sharing.
I loved you said popped and truly perfect for the theme! Thanks Pam 🙂
Oh this is right up my snacking alley – sweet, salty, and popcorn! Yum! Thanks for sharing with Thursday Favorite Things – I’ll be featuring you tomorrow! Angelina at Petite Haus
Aw, thank you so much Angelina ?
Christine Carter says
