#54- Build A Blanket Fort


This was one of my favorite things to do as a kid. My sister and I loved to drag the wooden high-backed chairs from the dining room to the living room and strategically cover them with blankets we gathered from around the house. We always had the best time hanging out in our cozy hideouts.

I thought it would be a fun, easy one to check off of my newly created 101 Things in 1001 Days list (which you can read in its entirety by clicking the tab at the top), so I forced my sister to play along on this lazy Saturday.

It was a bit of a challenge to fit both of us inside such a construction now that we're 5'6" and 5'9", but we made it work. Once we had made it all nice and comfy with an overflow of pillows and covers, we scrunched up inside and did what always used to do in our indoor tents:

Eat food and watch Disney movies.


Homemade veggie pitas, potato chips, and The Sword in the Stone.


It was just as much fun as it used to be!

Awesome! :) It made me feel like a kid again, truly, and I loved it. I didn't want to take it down. In fact, I tried to sleep in it that night (but my hip started hurting since I was lying on the floor and I remembered I'm definitely NOT 6 anymore). lol
