Hello all from Milwaukee! I left on Saturday at 5 after waking up at 4 in the morning and working until noon. I got home, got my stuff together, ran some errands and then headed out. The drive actually wasn’t too bad and good music certainly helps!
Yesterday ended up being a bit different than expected.
Before we headed out for the day, we had to barracade Boyfriend’s pup Roscoe in. Roscoe was less than thrilled and tried to escape. I am convinced we’d win money if we sent the following into Funniest Home Videos:
I wasn’t planning on meeting any of the Boyfriend’s family till today. However one of his brothers pretty much stuck around in town to meet me so we headed over, only to meet not only his brother but a few of his aunts too. After that Boyfriend figured we had to go see his mom or she’d feel left out. His family seems pretty awesome… and from what I’ve heard they like me so yay to that!
After that we headed to one of the local coffeeshops, ALTERRA, for coffee and a late breakfast. AND THEN it was onward to The Hunger Games!
I actually really loved the movie… its been awhile since I finished the trilogy and I actually think that’s good because I didn’t sit through the movie saying, “Wait, that isn’t right!” and “Hey they left that out!” I thoroughly enjoyed it, I love how powerful Katniss is, I loved Peeta and I especially adored Cinna (Lenny Kravitz was awesome). Not to mention Rue and I LOVED Stanley Tucci as Caesar. I could go on and on but I will say this, if you haven’t seen it yet and if you haven’t read the books you really should. Yes they are YA fiction BUT they are so different from the typical teenage angst love triangle. There is a lot of meaning behind them. Do it!
ANYWAY, today I am off to breakfast with Boyfriend, lunch at his mom’s and then who knows from there? Have a wonderful Monday all!
