A first for me!

The theme on the blog this weekend seems to be movies, ha!

There have been many, many times that I've wanted to go see a movie but have been to insecure to go by myself.

Well, today I thought, you know what, I'm going to do it. And I LOVED it. It was nice to have a little "me" time. It turned out to be a rainy day here, so it was the perfect movie day.

I bought my ticket.

And I went to see "The Switch".

Before I went into the movie I went to the pretzel place and got some pretzel bites and a soda. I couldn't remember if the movie theater lets you bring food and drinks in now or not. So I asked the guy working there and he said I don't think so but you can always put it in purse and sneak it in.

Pretzel guy, you're full of great ideas.

Guilty as charged.

Don't tell me you've never done this, LOL!!! In my defense, if they didn't charge an arm and a leg for their food and drinks we wouldn't have to break the movie law. BUT I did run out of my drink from the pretzel place BEFORE the movie started, so I did have to get another drink from the movie theater, and so they did get some of my money, haha!!

I sat pretty far up in the theater and had a row all by myself, and then people started piling in. And wouldn't you know that a group of 4 people came up and sat right next to me with a million other empty seats. I hate people all up on me like that, so I told the gentleman I'll move and give them their space (more like I needed my space) and his response, Oh..I'm sorry, didn't even see you there.

Dude, I'm alone but not invisable, ha!

But the moral of the story, it was a great movie, I highly recommend it :)

Ohhhh, and the previews, there are SO many great movies coming out!! Fall deems to be a GREAT movie time.

Allow me:

"You Again"

"Morning Glory"

"Life As We Know It"

"Little Fockers"

I am excited about ALL of these movies!!! And such great casts in each of them!!!

So, what about you? You like going to movies alone?

If you haven't, I suggest you give it a try. You just might enjoy it :)

Hope all of y'all have had a great weekend!

I've never been to the movies by myself but it's definitely on my to-do list. You can enjoy it so much more because you get to pick it with no interference! Sounds like a good day to me. :)

Bobbi said...

You make me want to go to the movies!!! And sneaking in the food isn't that bad, since the food court items at the movies are 1,000,000,000% inflated. Haha!

Glad I came across your blog! :)

I have never been to the movies by myself. Honestly, I have a hard time doing ANYTHING by myself. I should try it sometime though! And I agree, there are LOTS of good movies coming out soon! :-)

Melissa said...

I've never gone to the movies alone and don't know if I could lol.

We sneak candy into the movies using my bag all the time! Nothing wrong with that :P

Kristen @ said...

Um...I love pretzels. And I can't have any right now. So I'm drooling.


Sounds like fun!!! :)

I love going to a movie by myself from time to time! It is a nice little getaway. Yes, I have snuck food into the theater!

I have been a few times to the movies by myself and it is one thing I do not mind to do! :) It can be very nice! Glad you liked the movie- I'm wanting to go see a good movie!!

Jacquie said...

I don't think I have EVER gone to a movie alone... but if it's a serious, crying one... I absolutely would. I'd rather go to a good chick flick with a friend. Ha!

I'll admit... I do bring my own food (I've brought in water and a protein bar more times than I can count. Haha.) and, I like to have space between me and people I don't know... if there's room to do it.

Jenny said...

I went to see the expendables with the hubby and it was too much blood for me! It dose have good eye candy in it though!!!

I am dying to see The Switch!

Have a good week!!!!!!

Rebecca Jo said...

I've never done it, but really want to... just never had the time... but so many movies I know hubs doesnt care for.. I dont mind going by myself though - its dark anyways & then I wont embarass anyone with my totally loud laughing! :)

Love the guy told you to sneak in the pretzels!!! ... & that just made me crave some of those pretzel pieces of heaven!!!

Katie said...

I have to tell you, My husband and I sneak in food to the movies ALL. THE. TIME.

We go once a week just for fun, and we have got a stash of movie candy in our house that we fill up little sandwich bags full of, then I make room in my purse and we're off! Totally cheaper than actually paying for movie candy.

We've also sneaked in an entire chick-fil-a dinner one time.

THE Stephanie said...

OMG I hate it when people come in and sit right next to me. This happened 2 weekends in a row when the hubs and I went. We just laughed... and moved over. So annoying!

Oh, and we always make a Target run before the movie and sneak candy in. Seriously, it's just too expensive!!

Crystal said...

I'm dying to see Life As We Know It!!!! We also sneak stuff in the movies!!

Rosie said...

You know, I've never had the courage to go alone. however, I'm not into going as much as I use to anyways b/c there's always that ONE person who ruins it for me & talks the whole time. I just rent now. And p.s. you are DEF not the only person who sneaks food in!

Glad you enjoyed it!
