My Car is Old and other Weekend Happenings


On Friday night we went back to that fancy pants Luxury Cinema that charges you $19.50 for the pleasure of watching a movie in a giant recliner, ordering dinner at an additional cost and access to a button that calls someone over if you asked for 7 Splendas with your coffee but only  got 2. I know 7 is a lot and it could be causing bodily harm but I guess I just have other things to worry about.  Like making my coffee tasty with as few calories as possible.  I really didn't think we'd be back to Cinepolis so soon but Mj made plans for us to meet another couple at the location that's a little bit closer to us.  They live really close so they go all the time.  I didn't even know what movie we were seeing until we walked into the theater. Well, Mj told me a few weeks ago but I forgot then I was so busy enjoying some pre movie champagne that I didn't bother to ask.  I had no idea what Olympus Has Fallen was about and it was fun to be clueless going in and then watch it unfold. It was really good. Gerard Butler was so bad ass.  I ordered a Chicken Quesadilla not the salad and Mj stuck with the same burger he got last time. 



My car is so old I have to get a smog test to renew my registration so I did that on Saturday morning and then headed over to the mall to get my shop on and oh am I ever glad I did.  I found a coupon in my Marie Claire magazine set to expire in a week for $10 off a pair of their Crosby Street pant at New York & Company while supplies last.  It takes me forever to get to my magazines so I'm lucky I caught this one in time.  I went in, tried them on and loved them.  They have the perfect amount of stretch and flare.   The tag said $52.95, but I paid $10.00.  You so cannot beat that.  Later that night we met friends at a Sushi restaurant downtown called Katsuya for a Birthday dinner where I did not eat sushi but did discover a tasty low cal cocktail.  I prefer my food cooked thank you very much and I don't do seafood so I went with the grilled chicken.  The new discovery is Evergreen Fizz and it has Moscato, Gin, Lime juice and crushed rosemary.  I'm thinking maybe the reason it was $15 is because the bartender had to go to the trouble of crushing the fresh rosemary in the glass right there.  Downtown prices are ridiculous.

I felt bad because on Saturday Mj was heading downstairs to go to his homework and I lured him into cuddling which turned into a 3 hour nap....so he ended up doing homework for most of Sunday afternoon.  I finally watched Breaking Dawn Part II.  Soooo good!!  I loved it.  I got all teary eyed at the end.  Never mind Kristin Stewart's seeming inability to open up her mouth when she speaks; the thing that gets me about those movies is Bella and Edward's deep love for each other.  It's the kind of perfect love that you dream about when you are a little girl and watching it played out on the screen gets me all mushy inside every time.  I'm a sucker for an epic love story.  We capped off the night with Walking Dead.  Only 1 more episode left!!  I'm so sad season three is almost over.

I didn't spend one second thinking about work craziness or do any housework.

I thought breaking dawn II was one of the best in series, I didn't read the last book, so the ending was a real surprise. Also, loved the song at the end. - Kelly

I LOVE rolls, but I'm not a sushi person either.

glad you had a good weekend! i've been to once of those dine in theathers with recliners, they're so cool but definitely expensive.

Haha you are too cute! I wouldn't have eaten that nasty sushi either! EW! Garrett and I are going to a cinema grill this weekend. We got a Groupon for it, I am excited to try it out. Jealous of your NY&C purchase! You got a great deal! I love the Twilight series too, for the very reason you said. And we haven't watched The Walking Dead yet, I can't wait! I wish it wasn't almost over.

Sounds like an awesome weekend to me! Love that you take 7 splendas with your coffee...haha how dare them only bring you 2! I'm that way with ketchup...I have a serious problem. I need about 14 little packets for one burger and fries and they ALWAYS short us, even when I ask for "a lot".

Your pants look fabulous and I can't believe you got them for $10! What a steal!

I love New York and Company, I shop there all the time and with the coupons it's the best. I never pay full price for anything, it's awesome.

Movie theaters are just so expensive these days.

Not thinking about work and doing no housework, now that's my kind of weekend :).

My SIL loves New York & Co...somehow I can't find anything that fits me properly though. Not sure it's because I'm so tall? I think the pants are super cute.

You lured him into cuddling? I think my husband would love that. :) There are worse things!

What I would do to go to a luxury cinema....sounds so nice, even though it costs an arm and a leg ;).

Cuddling, movies, no work...bliss!

Random naps are the BEST! :)

Those pants are super cute. And now I want some bubbles after seeing your first picture...

Oh my gosh you definitely can't bear $10 for a pair of pants!! That movie theatre sounds pretty cool.

I love those movie theaters! There is one in Boca called Bogart's and it is so old hollywood and the food is divine! We drank in Breck this weekend and it was SO expensive. We had a $100 bar tab at the first bar and only a few drinks. Makes me VERY happy that I usually don't drink and save $$.
