Date Night, A New Love And A Great Find

I know you've been hanging out, anxiously awaiting the details of my hot date with my man this past weekend.

So sorry to have kept you waiting ;-)

I cleaned the house. I showered and washed my hair. I dressed in something other than a t-shirt and stretchy pants. I put on makeup.

I know. I was pretty impressed myself. I even picked up the babysitter.

I intended for us to see 2012 but when we got to the theatre, everyone and their uncle was in line to buy tickets. Seeing all those people just stressed me out and I was ready to go home.

Sure enough, after waiting in line forever we discovered that 2012 was sold out.

Sadness.

We decided to see Paranormal Activity. Sweet. I reminded him of my tendency to scream while watching horror movies and that I display no shame. He was ok with that.

After getting our snacks (movie popcorn...I love you) we chose our seats and watched a lot of parents with their kids come in. I ask you, what kind of parent brings their child to a horror movie?? Lots of teens too. And as luck would have it, they all sat right near us! We were so fortunate to hear their talking and laughing for the entire movie. Ian politely asked them several times to keep it down but they just got worse.

The movie itself was filmed Blair Witch style. It had slow periods but the creepy stuff more than made up for those times. I jumped and hid behind my jacket quite a bit, but I am proud to say I did not scream and embarrass my husband.

Honey, you are welcome.

It really bothered me that with all the jacking around by the kids around us, Ian wasn't really able to focus on the movie. A security guard had come in at one point but didn't do anything. An employee came in and didn't do anything either. On his second trip in, I called him over and asked to speak with a manager. He told me that the movie would be over in 20 minutes so the talking would be over then.

Huh?

Ian said for me to leave it, but it really bothered me. The poor guy busts his butt at his job, does a two hour magic show that very day, and can't even enjoy his downtime. After the movie, I spoke with the manager who apologized for the noise and gave us two free passes to see another movie.

Oh you know I'm gonna say it.

BONUS!!!

So now my sweetie can see whatever he wants.

I won't do a movie review, but here is a YouTube trailer of it. Watch if you dare.



Afterwards we went out for a late dinner and were home again by about 10:30. I drove the sitter home by 11:00.

While it was really, really nice to go out with just Ian, it was hard to relax 100% because I kept thinking of the big price tag this date would have by the end of the night. Babysitter, pizza for her and the kids, the movie, snacks, dinner....

In other news...

I have a new love.



Red Tangerine Fanta. OH YUMMEH! I have had a life-long love affair with Hawaiian Punch, but this stuff is like Hawaiian Punch 9.0. And to make me love it even more...it's available in Canada!

That'll teach you for not being available to me here in Canada, Hawaiian Punch! It's all but over between us!

I have been looking everywhere for a mitten shaped cookie cutter. I can find them online but they either don't ship to Canada or the shipping is astronomical. Enter Wendy from Funny Things Are Everywhere! Not only did she find my cookie cutter, she found it at a store that is only about 25 minutes from me!

BONUS! Most excellent.

Wendy is like a whiz with the internet. She's found other stuff for me in nano seconds. Seriously.

That's all I have to report at this time.

Over and out.

  1. I'm so glad you had a great time, and that you found your cookie cutter. Not so keen on the Fanta, but hey, to each their own! :)

  2. Ian, yo hubby2:45 PM

    I loved our date night... and it was worth it at even 10 times the cost. So there!
    Hey, how come the tv just turned on by itself?

    Oh and for your reader fans of Paranormal Activity, watch for my own homemade sequels... Parental Activity and Puppy Activity... MUCH scarier!
    A script excerpt
    "Ian, do you hear that strange sound? It sounds like whimpering with a thud thud thud!"
    "Yeah Katie, it's the dog and his tail hitting the wall. It's 3 am and I need to take him out for a walk."
    "Noooooooo!"
    TERRIFYING!

  4. You make me laugh. Sorry about the rowdy at the theater... I would have been SOOOO distracted by that. But then. You knew that. Since we were separated at birth and all.

    Blessings!

  5. I will definitely be watching the trailer when I get home (darn work and their blocking things so I have to do work).

    And thanks for the mention about the cookie cutter. I will do [almost] anything for a good sugar cookie!

  6. You summed up, in a nutshell, why my hubs and I haven't been to a movie since Harry Potter 2 came out.

  10. Going out with date-night makeup on the next morning! Love it! It's so gratifying! Remember highschool when you'd sport a hickey after a hot date or you'd giggle with your girlfriends about wearing HIS jacket after a late night with your crush or whatever? That sense of "tee hee hee lookie what I've been up to!" is sorta how I work it the next day. How. Lame. Am. I? Hahahahaha!

    Anyway, forgot to mention chica, that you've gotta grab your Gorgeous Blogger award from my blog when you get a chance. Best part is, I tossed the rules out the window so steal the bling without the hassle. Loves!

  11. Oh that would have made me so mad having those teens talk through the movie. Seriously, we were never like that at their age, were we?! I would have went all "mom" on their butts and told them a thing or two. Ok, not really, but I would totally be doing it in my head!

    Glad you at least got out to celebrate and get alone time....we could all use more of it....if it weren't so expensive!!
