Happy Saturday! I have another busy and non stop filled weekend going on around here. The holidays always bring busy, don’t you agree?!
We have a christmas party to attend tonight for Anthony’s side of the family, will be nice to see that family and to see Madison again. I have shopping to do this morning for some christmas gifts and cookie baking supplies for tomorrow for cookie baking with my sisters! Cookie madness again!
Breakfast was prepared last night, overnight oats!
1/2 cup oats, 1 cup almond milk, 1 scoop of pure matters chocolate pea protein, stevia, barney butter almond butter, and raspberries.
So let me tell you how my weekend kicked off….
We did a double date night with my best friend Cassie and her boyfriend Johnson, we did dinner and then went to see The Hobbit after.
Cassie is the greatest friend ever, was so good to see her! She works at a hair salon and is super busy this time of year, always hard for us to get together. I am glad last night we all could!
We ate at Garfield’s which is a place in the mall that is connected to the movie theater, was a good choice since we were eating meeting at 5 there and the movie started at 6:20. Plenty of time to eat!
We chatted so much though that it took us forever to order since we didn’t look at the menu! It is always like that since we want to catch up and it is hard to not be chatting on and on!
I ordered a combo dinner with chicken, shrimp, veggies, and a garden salad. It was a good meal!
Mike ordered chicken fingers and fries for an appetizer and then a chicken parmesan sandwich. He liked both and was chickened out after, lol!
The food was good, not somewhere I would eat all the time but hit the spot.
Before we knew it, it was movie time so we rushed off to make sure we got a good seat. We bought our tickets ahead of time, smart thing to do
The movie was really good, coming from a girl who has only seen one Lord of The RIngs and never read the books! My husband loves all that stuff and I was happy to go see it with him and our friends of course! Cassie’s boyfriend is also into all of The Lord of The Rings stuff as well, Cassie and I are just along for the ride! We all agreed the movie was great!
Can I tell you something though that made me a little anxious during the movie?
I have fears in life, just as we all do. One fear I recently discovered is going to the movies and it is something that has thankfully not prevented me from going all together. Ever since the Colorado movie theater shooting, I just have a big fear of being at the movies. Anytime someone gets up, I get nervous, or if I heard a weird noise, and it is just something that is sad to have.
When did going to a movie theater to enjoy a movie, have to be scary?
I think the shooting yesterday at the school in Newton had me a little upset and more scared too. It is really sad what the world is coming to, where are we safe? Is my son safe at school when he goes, my husband at work, or me going to the store?
I just know to live each day to the fullest, always tell my loved ones I love them, and that is all I can do.
Sorry about this long thing about my fear, but I think we all have this similar fear in a way. How can we not when there is violence that happens at places that should be safe and fun places to go?
I am headed off, got lots to do before the party tonight. I am sending more love, prayers and thoughts to those affected by the tragedy in CT yesterday <3
Healthy Diva Asks….
Do you have a little fear or anxiety when you go to the movies these days?
I just have to say, spread love and peace people <3
