Watched Beauty and the Beast 3D

So, I had been stalking the dollar theatre’s website to find out when Beauty and the Beast 3D would finally be showing. See, I saw Lion King 3D at the regular cinema and paid $14.00 only to find out a few months later I could have seen it for like $3.00. I figured that I’d be smarter this time. I’ve been waiting for months now…even to the extent of calling the place twice to confirm that they would definitely be getting the movie. I guess it should figure that the universe decided it’d be funny if I saw it twice in one day. And trust me, I may like Beauty and the Beast…but I don’t like it enough to plan to see it in theatres twice on the same day…pretty sure I’ve never ever seen two movies at the cinema in one day.

It was a scheduling fluke. I’d been planning to see it with my Italy Team since during our free time in Italy we’d sing Disney songs…then, our returned friend contacted my husband to plan a surprise double date. The husband and I could not be happier that they’ve returned, since in college they were always the couple that we double dated with to see movies, go out to eat, and simply get off campus when we were overwhelmed with the cfaw’ers crawling over our campus. So, how could I say “no” to that? So, that is how I ended up seeing it at 2:20 and 9:20 pm!

We met our friends at Cici’s where I never get to eat because the husband is not a fan. This also meant that I was able to keep up with this idea that I should eat one salad a day. I’ve been able to continue this since Applebee’s on Thursday. I had a mishap at Cici’s that I was not quick enough to photograph. Word to the wise…before turning containers of bacon bits upside down over your salad and shaking it violently, it might be important to double check that the lid is tightly screwed on. My salad got into a fight with the bacon bits, and it lost terribly.

After lunch we wandered around at some local shops before the movie. At the movies I saw one of those photo booth things, but this one was themed for the Hunger Games. On one hand I wondered, “why?” on the other at least a little bit of me wanted to do it. I was pleasantly surprised at the movie. I’m not sure if it is because its been like 20 years since the last time that I saw it on the big screen, but it felt different. It appeared that some of the graphics and scenery were redone in order the highlight the 3D, for the first time I noticed a lot of the background details. After the movie we went our separate ways, but ended up getting ice cream together and then lounging at their house before my next showing.

I was already so sleepy that part of me regretted planning to see this movie twice, especially since I had planned the event with my Italy Team. However, as soon as I saw my teammates I was so excited! There ended up being 11 of us, three of which were guys on the trip! We ended up almost filling an entire row, in the very front. Throughout the movie there were random bits of laughter and various comments made from the far side of the group (where the guys were). Apparently, I found out after the movie that one of the guys actually screamed and jumped when the wolves were attacking Belle. I’m pretty sure that we all would have paid $4.00 just to watch him watch this movie. His neighbors also managed to tie his shoe laces together without him noticing.

Being with my team again made me miss Italy so much! I also received an email this weekend from one of the missionaries there. They have finalized the location of their new church plant in a new city, and it will hold its first service on Easter! I am just humbled to be able to be apart of this ministry again! One of these days I will have to blog and post pictures about my experiences!

About Me

Hi! My name is Erin, and this is a place to "process out loud" in the words of my friends. You've probably noticed that the theme is kind of a wide theme, that is much like my life as I'm interested in MANY things: traveling, photography, jogging (its new!), being crafty, homesteading, firearms/self defense, and learning how to be a good wife. Through all of these things my goal is growing to know Christ more, and to make Him known. Each post shares a little about the promise that God has given me, that He'll finish what he began in me! (Phil 1:6) So thank you for joining me on this wonderful adventure.
