Weekend Recap


Friday was a rainy, kinda icky day, but I wanted to have a great weekend regardless. Ryan and I spent sometime at the mall, but hunger took over before too long! Instead of settling for food-court food, we headed over to McAlister's Deli. Mmm... I love this place ♥ It's especially good on a rainy day! After eating, we were going to just head home and catch up on tv (I know, we're exciting like that), but we got a text from some friends seeing if we wanted to get some drinks and catch a movie. Um, of course we did! So we met up at the same place we all went to last weekend and enjoyed a good hour or so of talking before we all went to see this movie...

It was absolutely fantastic!! The whole theater was laughing pretty much non-stop. I highly recommend this movie!

After the movie, we all still wanted to hang out more, so we went to hang out at The Roost. A nifty little bar, which happened to be having karaoke night. Oh my, there were some good ones to say the least! There was a Will Farrell look-a-like that had the whole place laughing with his cheese-tastic performances. All in all, a very fun night!


Saturday I got to spend pretty much the whole day with my mom and sister! We've all been really busy lately, so this was the first girls outing we'd had in ages. I'm now kicking myself for not getting any pictures... I know, I'm a horrible person/photographer/blogger for not doing so.
We had so much fun together! We all went to see this amazing little movie...

Maybe it was just me, but the 3D on this movie seemed extra fantastic! Oh, and the movie it's self... It was just darling ♥ I think I'm going to drag Ryan to it later this week, it was just so wonderful! I definitely recommend you all go and see it. Another great thing about the movie, is it had a preview for Toy Story 3 in 3D!! I'm so excited for that movie... I'm kinda obsessed with Dreamworks/Pixar cartoons ♥

After the movie we went and had dinner at...

If you live in Springfield, and haven't been to The Grotto, you need to go ASAP! It's one of the few places in town I can get a totally vegan meal without feeling like I'm missing something. Oh, and they've got a nice craft brew menu, if you're into that sort of thing.

We had such a great time talking and just enjoying all being together! I can't wait until summer when everyone is out of school and I can spend more time with my wonderful family ♥

How was your weekend?? I'd love to hear all about it ♥

PS, I want to thank you all for the wonderful comments you've been leaving!! I'm sorry I'm behind on responding, but I promise I'll catch up ASAP ♥ xoxo

Wow, you've been quite the busy little bee. I'm so behind on movies, good to hear there are a couple for me to check out!

Kelly Leigh said...

I love this! I thought I was so silly for actually wanting to see How to Train your Dragon! I'm so glad I'm not alone! And you said it was fantastic! ahhh I'm gonna have to drag the husband to see it now. I've never seen a 3D movie though and I'm a little nervous of going with him. He has the WORST motion sickness ever.

Charlie said...

oh I would love to see both of those films, so going to when I get the time to!

Meighan said...

Oh I'm SO glad to hear you liked Date Night.. I want to go see it! I heart Steve Carell and Tina Fey

Rhiannon Nicole said...

Okay a couple of things....
I want to see Date Movie so bad.
I love anything with Steve in it!
He's so funny.
Most weekends I'm seperated from my MR. because I drive back to my hometown on weekends and he has to work, so I ALWAYS ALWAYS miss making memories with him and having little cute rainy day dates with him.
BUT this weekend he's actually getting off to drive down and spend the weekend with me!
YAY, so maybe we will go see Date Night.
Next, I LOVE PIXAR sooooooooooo MUCH!
and lastly
I'm extrememly jealous you live in springfield.
This place is so appealing to me, and I've never been there.
Is living there as good as it seems?? It just seems like a REALLY lovely place!

Love your blog, I'm a photographer too.

Date Night was a great date night movie, my fiance and I watched it a few weekends ago right after a sushi dinner. ;)

I'm so adding you to my google reader, nice to virtually meet you.

Kelly - Yay!! I love how many adults are into these awesome cartoons <3 I went to see Up on opening day haha Oh, and I don't think the 3D would be too much for your hubby. It's not near as bad as Avatar! I knew a girl who was sick for a whole weekend from that lol

My girl and I went to see Date Night a bit back. It was absolutely hilarious, best comedy in a long time, i think.

Sam-I-am...bah hahaha

its simple love said...

I want to see Date Night! I am glad to hear you liked it. I was kinda iffy about it when I saw the preview. i don't want to ruin either of those actors in my head... I just love them both so seeing them in a flop would upset me. ha ha, it's weird how you can get attached to celebrities like that. I heard that Dragon movie was great too, so you're not alone.


Julia said...

I LOVED both of these movies!
