Tuesday, again?!

Howdy ho there, partner! Two updates in one day you say? Whaaa! Okay okay... Liz and I just got back from seeing Toy Story 3. We decided to forgo our usual gym routine and treat ourselves to some childhood flashbacks, laughs, and probably some tears, too. 

First off, can you believe the first Toy Story came out fifteen years ago! I was only SEVEN! Oh my! While I can't tell you too terribly much about the second one (it's been a while!), I can tell you that without a doubt, this was the best movie I've seen this year! Tuesdays were always my date night with Mike, so I had to do a little compromising but we had a wonderful time. Movie tickets are so expensive in NYC ($16.50 each! Eep!) but it was well worth it! There wasn't a single minute of the movie that wasn't entertaining! So much laughter and so many memories. I thought it was awesome how it was definitely made for our generation. Not even for our little brothers or sisters. There's so much that kids today wouldn't understand and it was a wonderful ending to a great story. I held back the tears (for the most part) until I saw a guy 2 rows up from me crying. Then I just kinda decided to go with it. There was a girl behind me that at one point had to catch her breath. It was definitely a treat and I recommend it to anyone who wants a little taste of nostalgia.

Afterwards I popped over to The Lyric Diner and grabbed a veggie burger to go. You'd think that all I ever ingested were pickles, Naked juices, and oj by the looks of my fridge! Grocery shopping tomorrow... a must! Now I'm hanging out at home while I wait on Mike to get back home so we can Skype.

Tomorrow is my last day of work for the week! I have Thursday, Friday, AND Monday off since Mike is in town! Woo hoo! You can be that this weekend will be full of photos, picnics and adventures! I'm so excited he gets to come visit for the holiday! Do any of you have any sweet plans for the 4th?! This is my first year away from home [and by away I mean "away away" aka 1000 miles from my family]. I don't know what we'll get into, but I can for sure tell you that we will NOT be going to Governor's Island! She and Him are playing a free show but I can't even imagine the mad house! 

Anywhoo, I'm off of here! Im gonna try to catch the series premier of Huge online! There was a big ruckus over it at work today and apparently everyone loved it. Did you watch it? What did you think?  I'll be back with my daily photo soon!


PS; Thanks for everyone's reactions and comments on the last post! It was really great to hear what you had to say! The gal who asked followed up on my FormSpring and I directed her here. Hopefully she'll gather some reinforcement from all of your amazing words!

PPS; Danielle of Sometimes Sweet featured me on her blog today for Tattoo Tuesday! Such an honor to be asked and I'm still incredibly flattered. Thanks so much Danielle! CLICK HERE if you'd like to read it!


  1. I so want to see Toy Story 3! We bought the first one the other day and maybe we can take Rosslyn to see it soon. And congrats on being featured on Tattoo Tuesday!! I follow her blog and was wondering if you'd be in it.

  2. i went to one of she & him's free shows in chicago a couple of weeks ago and OH MY was it incredibly crowded! it was fun because everyone had their blankets and little picnics in the park, but so so packed!

  3. toy story always makes me cry...my litl sis's birthday is the 5th, so we'll probably celebrate her birthday..
    P.s. I love your blog and I gave you a blog award! You can get it here: http://cherryredstudio1.blogspot.com/2010/06/today-i-got-my-first-blog-award-i-am-so.html

  4. The 4th of July obviously isn't a holiday over here in the UK, but it's the Wimbledon tennis final over here!
    I am working though. Lame. Have a good week! xx

  5. 15 years ago – that makes me 9 when it came out! This time 15 years I would have finished Lower School and then would be starting Year 5 at Middle School in September. My brother would have been 7.

    Seeing as I’m in the UK and we don’t celebrate Independence Day, the 4th will be a normal Sunday for me. Church in the morning followed by sitting in the garden or watching DVDs all afternoon – I might even get round to dying my hair this weekend rather than reading the instructions and the box over and over.

    She and Him are awesome! Zooey is the coolest! Lol. I love her dress sense – the whole new vintage thing is very cool (oh dear what a geek!)

  6. It doesn't come out in England till the end of the month but I saw it on Sunday morning at Glastonbury in a cramped tent, boiling hot.

    I bawled my eyes out! It was amazing. Everyone cheered and stuff aswell it was fun but i'll definately be watching it at work when it finally comes out over here.

  7. hAVE A HAPPY independence weekend!
    I'm going to Long Island to enjoy my family!~!
    go to Jones Beach and have a huge bbq


HEY! Thanks for dropping by. xo KB
