Oh, hi blog. Can we still be friends?

So I haven't written in a little over a month, and really there isn't too much to update on besides the day to day things and pregnancy stuff which I'll spare you from. Well, maybe one pregnancy shout-out: Almost 20 weeks (HALF WAY, are you kidding me???? That went by so fast!) and feeling punches, kicks and swirls everyday now. I love those little kicks because it makes it all the more real that there is an actual person in there.

Anyway, that's the pregnancy update.

So, last night we decided to try a new movie theater in San Juan Capistrano. It's been there a long time, but they recently had it redone and renovated so it's basically brand new. They only have three theaters in the whole thing, but it's a really nice theater. Two regular stadium seating theaters and one VIP theater upstairs with only 50 seats. We got there just in time for the VIP showing of "The Social Network" so we figured why not try it? You pick your seats when you purchase the tickets. There are only 6 rows of 8 seats each. I thought it was a little weird, but when we made our way upstairs, the "hostess" standing at the top of the stairs showed us to our HUGE LEATHER chairs and handed us both menus(We already had dinner, but the menu has appetizers, dinner items, dessert, and the regular movie items so I kind of wished we hadn't eaten dinner already). Each seat has a table tray, cup holder and roomy armrests. Oh, and there is a button you push when you know what you want to order from your personalized server. I felt like I was in the Jetsons. He/She shows up takes your order and brings it to you while you watch the movie, or in our case during the previews (We didn't want to order during the movie). We got a Diet Coke (free refills that they get for you whenever you push the button!), popcorn, Sour Patch Kids, and a fudge brownie with ice cream topped with a little Hawaiian flower and powdered sugar. Are you kidding me? I had no idea theaters like this existed! It was only a sixteen dollar ticket. I know that is pricey for a movie, but I thought it was amazing for the experience. I still can't get over how comfortable the chairs were and how much leg room I had. Well I'm short so who cares, but Nate even had tons of leg room. I can't wait to go again and try the dinner items...they looked pretty delicious from what I could tell.

Well that's pretty much the update for us I guess...if that even counts as an update. Conference weekend was so great as usual, but now that it's over I have a long day of football ahead of me. I just bought a new Mini Donut pan off Amazon a couple days ago that I can't wait to try, so maybe I'll try that today and trade Nate a donut for the remote control. Wish me luck.

  1. "A long day of football ahead of me"...AMEN sister! Seriously, I don't get it. I swear every football game is exactly the same. And WHY do they have to watch ALL of them?!? I mean I understand if they want to watch their favorite team...but EVERY SINGLE GAME?!? come on...

  2. I'm super jealous of your theater! I guess someday soon I'll have to venture out and find one here in Dalian but I bet it won't be anything like your experience.

  3. That theater sounds great, we'll have to join you guys sometime. And if your donuts are as good as the cinnamon rolls, bring some over!

  4. Ugh. I just went to write on my blog for the first time in a long while, and I wrote, "Oh, hi blog!" And then I was like, oh no, did Brittany already start a post like that this week? And then I came here to check, and you DID.

    I like your blog anyway.

    I can't wait to see my pregnant cousin! In a million months. Don't have that baby before Christmas whatever you do.
