At the Movies with my girl.

Miah and I went to the movies today.

Angel had taken the boys with him to the Island to go fishing (which also included some 4-wheeling due to Devyn mentioning how "all 4 tires were off the ground, we were in the air" while Angel was trying to tell me about the fish that Dom caught).

Uh huh....

Yeah, my kids will tell on you. Don't be doing things you shouldn't. They'll come right to MOMMA!

Anyway, Miah said she wanted go see The Princess and the Frog. I told her to make a list of the snacks she wanted to take to the movies and she pointed out the exact purse I should use for the trip. That's how we roll.

She made her list, I handed her some baggies to put pickles in from our jars at home and I finished getting ready. I went online and checked for the next available showing. It starts at 4:50 and it was already 3:20 and we hadn't even left the house or stopped to get the snack. There were no showings in the theaters closer to home so we were going to have to drive a little ways.

We rushed out of the house and hit the road.

We forgot the list.

We forgot the pickles.

Miah wanted to go to Wendy's for frosties and I figured that was a good idea.

There wasn't a Wendy's close to the theaters but there was an HEB. We hit that bad boy's candy isle up and loaded up on snacks (and a couple of extra drinks just in case we run out of our drink there). We left HEB with a container of Gummie Worms, the movie sized box of NERDS, the variety pack of kit kat, some life savers sour gummies, sandwich bags (the container of gummies wouldn't fit in the purse) a sprite and a water (Miah is a water freak) and we were on our way.

We had to scratch the frostie idea because after packing my purse with every single thing we bought, the frosties weren't goint to fit. DANG!

We get to the theater and purchase the tickets. Geez, I forgot how much going to the theater cost.....cause I never go. We get inside and had told Miah we were going to buy a large bag of popcorn and some drinks. I'm looking at the menu and I'm just about to crap my pants...UGHHH. SOOOO EXPENSIVE!!

I ordered the 2 large drink and 1 large popcorn special. 16+ dollars.

I altered the order a little bit and got 1 large drink, 1 large ICEE and 1 large popcorn. 15 bucks even. Geez, good thing we got our snacks.

The movie was super cute and we enjoyed ourselves.

We got home and Angel was here with the boys and was headed to his Uncle's house. Miah wanted to go with them so that was the end of Girls Day.

I opted to stay home because that is the way I am. I'm not a fan of being out if I don't have to. I'm home in my pajamas eating leftover riblets, a salad and sipping on my Boones Farm .

Life is good.

I hope everyone is enjoying their days with their loved ones when you get a chance.

Here's a picture of Miah that I came across while I was digging up pics of my high school days.

She's a cave baby for Halloween. I had forgotten how chubby and cute she was back then.

My mother in law made the costume for her and it was adorable.

Not to mention the huge frickin bone we put in her hair!

The "old" movie theater by us has $3 movies. Talk about a bargain. You just have to wait a bit to go see them.
