Midnight showings and a lil trail mix.

Last night I made my way to the theater at 9:30pm to stand in what I expected to be a LOOOONG line for The Hunger Games. We arrived at 9:50 and I was very surprised when at 10pm they started letting people in the doors. I am very happy that standing in a line for 2 hours was not a part of my experience. There were only about 4 people in front of us in line too.

It was very fun to see all the girls who were dressed like Effie and Katniss. It was also sweet to see so many younger girls dressed as Prim.


We decided that we'd take some trail mix with us since food is CRAZY expensive. WOW, I won't even go on a tirade about it, but seriously?! *sigh* I digress. :)

I enjoyed the movie a lot. It is as always not exactly what is in the books, but I have gotten to a point that I don't get frustrated about the differences anymore. I may find it sad that certain things were left out, but I leave it alone and just enjoy the movie I am watching. I went with a group and many were very upset about a lot of things. I just don't feel like getting caught up in that. Although, I do have a list of things I would have changed. Lol. I will resist indulging though.

I suggest that anyone go see the movie. It was very enjoyable. :)

On another note:

Jonathan and I sent Elena to spend the night with her grandparents so that we'd be able to go on our midnight showing date. She was so cute before she left home.

This is a video of her before she left. CLICK HERE!

Here she is posing with her overnight bag.


Yup. She is a cutie.

Can't wait to see her this afternoon. :)

Well, I am going to end this post. I have another I'd like to write that has BIG NEWS!

Oh Chicago, How I love you!

I absolutely loved Chicago!!! We stayed in Pinegree Grove which is a suburb about an hour outside of the city, but we spent most of our time in the downtown area. We arrived on Sunday night and relaxed with dinner and some games. Allee even got some of the girls to play Barbies with her





I finally got to watch Rouge One with our host which was right up my alley! Monday went on the Big Bus Tours and got to see every single building in the city!  Listening to our tour guides describe different key points about the city made it so much more exciting than just driving by the buildings would have been. We also wandered through Millenium Park and I got to have a Chicago Style hot dog! I visited The Bean, Crown Fountain, Lurie Garden, Jay Pritzker Pavillion and walked through a bit more of Grant Park.

















I also got to visit The Field Museum of Natural History and it was awesome! We were going to go to the Art Institute of Chicago, but we changed our minds once we walked into the lobby and saw th…

My 1st week at my NEW JOB!!

Guys I got the job!!!
I am so excited I can't even begin to express it! I'm paying for my girls to be able to go to school and I'm contributing towards bills and it feels wonderful!! I know that as a stay-at-home mom I contributed a lot to my family dynamic, but there's something about being able to give financially towards expenses that feels amazing! 
Anyway, my first week passed and I can't tell you how great it was. The first three days I was training and would have to say that while I had what I feel like we're "training wheels" I was able to glean a lot of information from the person training me. By the fourth day she sort of did the 50/50 of letting me work by myself and assisting me. By day 5 she had gone out of town and I was working by myself! I can't tell you how awesome it felt to be able to sit at my desk and do the job that I was trained to do within 5 days AND feel like I was doing it well. It's a great feeling.

It also doesn't…

Week 15 Day 1

I can hardly believe that I have made it to 15 weeks of working out consistently. I've been eating healthy and gluten free for that long too! It's amazing to see how my body has changed and my energy level has been impacted. I am so very happy about what  diligence has done for me. I never want to go back to being inactive. 
I have been thinking about different goals. Finding myself considering how I can best  take my workouts up a notch. Never thought I would see myself be the person that would need to tweak a work out because I've gotten stronger. I have never stuck to anything long enough to see myself get to that point. It is beyond exciting.
I was in the car the other day and was daydreaming about learning something new like kickboxing or MMA. The crazy part about it is that it is totally possible for me to do something like that. I mean, I have been active long enough to where I could see it being a definite possibility. Maybe I should take a look around in my area …
