May the odds be ever in your favor

happy hunger games. i mean monday.
I was so excited to see the movie this weekend.
tickets were sold out friday & saturday so the only day we could see it was yesterday.
I can honestly say that I have never looked so forward to a sunday.

I went with my friend/stylist, Audrey, and her hubby, along with 6 other girls. 
We went to this theater called Cinebistro. Do y'all have one where you live? 
Let me just tell you, once you cinebistro, you don't go back.
I will never go to a regular theater again. Not that I'm a regular movie go'er anyway, but they seriously have outdone themselves. We got to the theater around 11:30 and ordered mimosas. Since Audrey was the first to order a drink that day, she got a free specialty drink. Then we went into the theater to get our seats and there were waiters taking our food orders (that's right, they serve you legit food before the movie) and we decided on a bottle of wine for the movie. So fun! Oh, not to mention that we are sitting in huge leather chairs that were super comfy.  

So, what did y'all think of the movie?
I loved it! I'm glad I read the book before though because you definitely don't get a lot of the backstory. And even though it was two hours, I still felt like it was rushed. But it was still so good! and I would totally see it again :)

in other news, I went to tarjay this weekend and got these goodies.

And finally, last Thursday Jake and I went down to CNU to watch Olivia in her end of the year dance performance. We had to wait until the last act but it was so worth it. She did such a great job! {love you liv:)}

I LOVE Dinner-movie theaters. There is one in Boca Raton that makes you feel like you are back in the 20's and they have the MOST comfortable seats ever. You look so beautiful, especially in the last picture! <3

I have to wait to see the Hunger Games until Wednesday... I blame it on a crazy work schedule! I read the books and am so excited to finally see it this week! Have a great Monday, xoxo

I loved Hunger Games as well! Such a good movie, it was fun to see how they portrayed everything. That theater sounds really nice! We have one like that out here and it's nice because you choose your seats ahead of time so you don't have to get there super early!

Is that a striped dress in your last picture? It is adorable!
