A Night In of Fun and Laughter with Chicago Town

November 10, 2016

Both our boys were away for the weekend, so Mummy Pond and I decided to plan a girly night in. Perfect for what felt like the first night of winter!

This is a sponsored post.

We picked our pizzas up, a Chicago Town Take Away Beef Brisket and Deep Dish Ham and Pineapple. I couldn’t ignore the gin aisle though and we grabbed some Tanqueray to enjoy too.



Chicago Town had sent us some items to make the night in a bit more fun. I was very excited by the Fujifilm Instax as I’ve always wanted a Polaroid camera. We also got some pizza shades to have some fun with when taking pictures, Mummy Pond especially liked these and has since kept them for herself!



It was nice to have an evening with Mummy Pond. I’ve found moving away from my best friends quite difficult, so it’s been wonderful having her on tap for all her worldy wisdom as well as hugs. Mum hugs are pretty epic if I’m honest. Especially when you’ve been having a tough time in general.

Anyway, the fun stuff… Whilst our pizzas were cooking away in the oven, we kept our minds off our hunger (oh my the pizza smells so wonderful when cooking!) by taking some funny pictures with the slice shades. We also learnt how to use the Polaroid camera, a bit alien when you’ve never used one before. But we got there and now my mum’s kitchen is covered in funny pictures of us.



There’s nothing quite like a night in and saying no to going out if I’m honest. We watched films (Secret Life of Pets is brilliant), drank gin (because always gin) and giggled. Laughter really is the best medicine.

So why not this Friday grab yourself some Chicago Town pizzas and do the same as us. Chicago Town are currently running a give away where you can win your own Slice Shades. Just enter the unique code inside of the box to see if you’ve won some. Then upload your slice selfie with the #loveatfirstbite! Happy hunting!

    The pizza shades are very snazzy, you both look great in them too! I really want to see Secret Life of Pets (to be honest, I didn’t even realise it had been in the cinema, let alone released!) and would love to have pizza to go with it…mmmm, pizza!! 😀
