éé on this week's mom to mom, mandy brings the family together for movie night.

éé that story and more after the break.

While most movie theatres are still closed due to the pandemic, it doesn't mean you bring the movie theatres atmosphere to your home.

éé on mom to mom, mandy has a new cool way to make it feel like the read deal !

Take a look.

Mandy williamson: today on mom to mom, we're going to show you how to create the ultimate family movie night.

My family loves movie night.

In fact, we try to do it at least once a week.

But it tends to get a little boring and same repetitive thing, so i wanted to do something to give my kids the ultimate family movie night like they're in the movie theaters.

So, what do you do when you go to the movie theaters?

You get candy, popcorn, drinks, all the good stuff.

Well, i made a trip to the dollar store and found these little nifty caddies for a dollar as well as this popcorn holder.

So, what we did is we popped the popcorn, you take the kids and let them pick out their favorite candy, put in their favorite drink, and then, of course, you sit on the couch, and you pick out your movie, and enjoy your movie night.

It's just a fun way to give your kids that in-movie- theater experience.

And they really love it.

These kits are so fun, and your kids are going to love them.

The hardest part about these is picking the movie and getting everybody to agree on the exact same one.

Moms, we'd love for you to give this a try.

If you do, please post those pictures to our facebook page, and we'll see you on the next mom to mom.

Intro when you head to the beach for a summer vacation, you probably understand the risk of sunburn and marine life.

éé but there are hidden dangers that could be life- threatening.

éé meteorologist trevor birchett explains rip currents in this week's weather whys.

If you're like me, you probably love a nice, relaxing trip to the beach in the summertime.

But there is a dangerous phenomenon that can occur that you may not even notice.

Rip currents are small areas of water that are moving away from the shoreline, and are estimated to result in over 50 drowning deaths each year.

They most commonly form near a break in a sandbar, but can form anywhere that waves are crashing.

See, water piles up at the shore between these waves, and eventually has to rush back out to sea.

This creates a rip current, which can pull even experienced swimmers far away from the shore.

If you ever find yourself being pulled away from the beach, the most important thing to remember is to not panic.

Rip currents are usually less than twenty feet wide, so swim parallel to the shore until you're no longer being pulled.

Then, swim back safely.

They're usually hard to spot from the beach, but they can be seen if you know what to look for.

Usually you'll see a break in the white caps of the waves, indicating an area that water is pulling away from shore.

Now, there are ways to stay informed about rip current dangers and to lower your risk.

The national weather service publishes rip current and sea danger forecasts that are represented at beaches by flags.

Remember, green means good, yellow means caution, red means dangerous, and double red means the water is closed.

So have fun, but just be safe.

And remember, we want to answer your weather questions!

Send them into us, and you may see them here on the next episode.

Until then, i'm meteorologist trevor birchett.

Msu's football team holds a scrimmage yesterday....hear from mike leach on how it was after the break.éé practice makes perfect.

You may have heard that saying a time or two.

Well, mississippi state hopes that saying rings true this season.

The bulldogs hit the field in davis wade stadium yesterday for the team's scrimmage.

Head coach mike leach hasn't announced who his starting quarterback will be yet.

However, he did mention in his press conference that he left the field not only liking what he saw from qb's kj costello and will rogers....but what he saw from the team as well.

Had a really good day today.

I thought will did an admirable job as far as a lot of times a freshman goes out there for a scrimmage and flinches a little.

Coming into the season, we know all about the names ole miss has on offense like john rhys plumlee, jerrion ealy, snoop conner and elijah moore so it's easy to forget about the defense.

The guys credit developing off the field relationships to their on field success.

"we came together as a team starting to understand each other more so we can build a relationship with each other.

Since we been building a relationship with each other that carries onto the field now cause we're getting to know each other off the field.
