My Must Have Movie Munchie

92

It’s a fact that I turn into a pumpkin around 7pm on weeknights.

Sure, I’ll go for the occasional late night walk or after dinner bike ride, but I’m more likely to be in my PJs than a party dress on Monday-Thursday evenings. Last night was different though. I let my hair down, threw the rules out the window and went to the movies!

IMG_9665

Wheee! It’s true – my Mom and I spent the evening with a wolf and a vampire…

IMG_9664 IMG_9666 

Aka, we finally saw Eclipse! If loving a hundred year old vampire in a teenager’s body is wrong, I don’t want to be right. TEAM EDWARD! I am this close to getting a poster for my bedroom wall. ;)

eclipse-poster1[1]

I drooled over the luscious vampire watched the movie intently with a small bag of popcorn on my lap. I can’t go to the movies without getting popcorn – it’s not possible. Although, at $5.25 for a small bag, I wish I could break the habit!

IMG_9671

Our verdict? The second movie was better but we love all things Twilight so, of course, we loved Eclipse. I can’t wait for the 4th installment! Anyone know when it’s coming out? Do Edward and Bella actually get married? Will Bella turn into a willing vampire?! I should read the book… ;)

After the movie, my Mom and I sat down to a light dinner at Panera. You Pick 2 of a Mediterranean Veggie ‘Wich and Chicken Tortilla Soup.

IMG_9672

The soup was SOUPER zesty and a tad spicy. I dug it!

IMG_9673 IMG_9674

This sandwich is what I was most excited for though. Salty, zippy, crunchy and that bread is just to die for. Squishy tomato basil with just a hint of cinnamon in the crust. I swear I tasted it. So unexpected!

IMG_9675 IMG_9677

Rounded out with a crunchy apple. Does anybody know what kind of apples Panera serves? I love the small size and perfect crunch. :)

This morning, after THE most humid morning Mom walk, I crushed my hunger with a sweet breakfast of Life Cereal + Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze and a Honey Roasted Peanut Butter + Banana English Muffin!

 DSC_0001

My hot and squishy Thomas 100% Whole Wheat English Muffin was slathered with some of the honey roasted peanut butter my friend gave me. I am becoming addicted to this stuff – it is CRAZY good!

 DSC_0005

This Life Cereal was a total impulse purchase at the store. I love this perfectly crunchy, lightly sweet cereal with all my heart. Plus it is insanely delish with USVAB, as are ALL cereals, imo!

DSC_0006 

Filling and tasty. :)  

DSC_0015

Well I didn’t have any leftovers from last night’s dinner, and I ate all my pre-made salads for the week, so I dug around and packed a Sampler Style Lunch!

DSC_0002

Including some Basha Hommus and Wheat Thins.

DSC_0004

Crunchy and creamy – an ace combo.

DSC_0008 DSC_0007

Not to be outdone by a Pink Lady Apple and roasted almond butter. Ummm – Ben and I did an inventory the other night and realized we have 10 jars of various kinds of peanut and/or almond butter. Out. Of. Control!

DSC_0015

Last, but not least, a 100 Calorie Jiffy Pop bag of popcorn. I’ve found this particular flavor of 100 calorie popcorn to be pretty decent, actually!

DSC_0017

To be eaten here and there during the afternoon. Work has been absolutely nuts lately – no time for a leisurely lunch, that’s for sure. :? I’d rather be busy than bored to death though!

Three Question Thursday

Can we celebrate the fact that I didn’t forget about TQT today AND the fact that it’s already Thursday?! This week has flown by! Heeere ya’ go:

1. Do you wear gold or silver jewelry?

2. Do you bring your own snacks to the movies, buy them there, or go snackless?

3. Are you a homebody during the week, or do you like to get out and do stuff?

My answers:

1. I have always been a silver girl, but lately my wardrobe is starting to include a lot of blues, cremes and grays – which I’ve been pairing with gold jewelry. It’s nice for a little change-a-roo!

2. If I’m munching on candy, I usually bring it – but hot, buttery popcorn is a movie theater only purchase!

3. Homebody!

  1. I also turn into a pumpkin around 7. I am in bed by 9!
    1. I wear both
    2. I usually eat before, no snacks in the movie
    3. I don’t like doing things on wk nights at all! I stay home on school nights. :)

  2. haha a lot of your questions will be answered through the book! ;)

    A friend of mine sent me this article:

    http://movies.yahoo.com/feature//movie-talk-breaking-dawn-movie-details.html

    Basically, it looks like they’re turning the 4th book into 2 movies and the first part is scheduled to come out Nov. 18, 2011! SOOOO far away!! :(

  3. Emily 07.22.2010

    1. both!
    2. i bring my own if i think i’ll be hungry
    3. i’m a granny – no weeknight plans – in bed at 9pm

  4. Sara 07.22.2010

    Glad you liked Eclipse! My friends and I thought it was pretty corny – the main reason we go see those movies is so we can get a good laugh :D

    I actually don’t wear jewelry..at all. I wish I did, but it all kind of gets on my nerves…weird, right? And I always bring my own snacks to the movies – so much cheaper! And I’m a homebody, definitely. Even on the weekends, sometimes!

  5. AAAH I’m so jealous you got to see it!! I MUST go soon…
    . Do you wear gold or silver jewelry?
    Uuuh more gold than silver
    2. Do you bring your own snacks to the movies, buy them there, or go snackless?
    I bring my own :) they don’t have many vegan snacks in my area!
    3. Are you a homebody during the week, or do you like to get out and do stuff?
    I’m a homebody :p though saying that, I’ve already been to London twice this week :p

  6. Jenna 07.22.2010

    •I hate gold jewelry! I wear only silver….but I only wear my promise ring & engagement ring….
    •I bring either my own snack or no snack at all! Much cheaper+healthier that way!
    •I’m such a homebody! Lately my fiance + I have been obsessed with LOST. We’re a little behind times, but we just started season 1 + we’re in love!

  7. Lindsay 07.22.2010

    I must have at least 10 jars of nut butter too, all completely necessary of course!
    1. I think I have more silver jewelry than gold but I’m actually starting to like gold better now!
    2. I usually bring grapes and some sort of Larabar or Goldfish Crackers so I’m not tempted by the candy and popcorn.
    3. I’m usually a homebody but it’s nice to get out once in a while.

  8. i switch it up. the one piece of jewelry i wear everyday is my silver cape cod bracelet with a gold cranberry on it, so that let’s me mix and match!

    i bring my own! wawa snacks fo sho! way to $$$ at the theater!

    i’m usually a homebody but lately i’ve been trying to get out. it makes my night feel so much more productive. if i stay in i feel like the hours fly by and i’ve done nothing!

  9. I have ALWAYS wondered the same thing about Panera’s apples. They’re perfect, aren’t they?!?

    1) My nice jewelry is all silver, but my fashion jewelry is both :smile:
    2) I generally go to CVS first and buy a candy, but I’m with you if we’re talking popcorn
    3) Total homebody! I’m in bed at 9 pm!!

  10. Sarah C 07.22.2010

    You should read the Twilight series! I gave in when my 10 year old (at the time) step-daughter wouldn’t stop talking about it a few years ago. So much better than the movies. Do you want a spoiler if they get married, or just read the book?! They average about 500 pages, but very easy read.
    1) Silver! But I’m starting to sell Premier jewelry and have a lot of gold stuff now and it’s very pretty. Which means, I need to buy some navy clothes! :)
    2) Bring pop, get popcorn. OR go on Tuesday nights to Wynnsong for $1 pop and $1 popcorn and $6 movie ticket!!
    3) I like to mix it up every other night. Go out and do something with hubby and kids one night (swimming right now) and then stay home and chill the next.

  11. Caryln 07.22.2010

    1. I used to be a silver girl, but I love gold jewelry now!
    2. My mom and I always bring our own snack. Twizzlers are our must have movie snack!
    3. Homebody for sure! If I ever go out during the week I’m always disappointed when I get home and remember its not the weekend! lol

  12. Kristen 07.22.2010

    Hey there!

    OK, my fiancee works at Panera and the apples are fuji and the tomato basil bread has almond paste on the crust! I don’t know about you, but it seems kinda random to me and I don’t know if I like it on my all time fave sandwich!

  13. Alyse 07.22.2010

    1. I don’t wear gold jewelry because I am very fair. I think yellow gold is more suited to those with darker skin. My opinion anyway. I wear white gold or platinum.
    2. I don’t go to the movies because:
    3. I am a major homebody.

  14. Darcy 07.22.2010

    1. I mix and match for, wedding set is white though and wouldn’t want gold. Otherwise, depends on what Im wearing.
    2. I only will go the movies here in DSM on Tuesdays where Carmike has the “Tuesday Stimulus” deals, $4 movies, $1 popcorn and candy. The bag is small :( but of course the better option.
    3. I will do whatever, if I have plans I will stay out late but if no plans, I like to be under the sheets by 9 to catch up on DVR then snoozeville ASAP!

  15. i love love love that veggie sandwich from panera. that’s my favorite thing to get. i love the cilantro hummus…so great!!!

    1. Silver.
    2. Sometimes will bring my own candy otherwise i will either go snackless or buy some candy. not a huge popcorn person!!!
    3. Some nights I will go out for dinner….nothing crazy. pretty much a homebody!

  16. Amber 07.22.2010

    1. I’m a silver girl! I wish I could wear gold, but I don’t think it looks very good against my skin tone.
    2. I’m the same as you, I bring candy to snack on but if it’s popcorn it’s gotta be from the theater. Then I usually go and look up the calories to torture myself later. Haha!
    3. I’m a homebody for maybe one night or two, but most of the time I have SOMETHING to do. Whether it’s class, work, a date or dinner with a friend. I’ve been this way since high school. Busy, busy, busy but it’s the only way I am productive. When I have nothing to do I’m least productive. Weird? Thank god for dvr. :)

    PS: I can’t believe you haven’t read the books! You should read ‘em. They’re super quick, easy reads. I swear, I bet you will be done with all four books in less then a month. They’re tough to put down, you will be up with Edward every night. Promise.

  17. Elyse 07.22.2010

    I agree, you should DEF read the books! But if you don’t want to wait that long, feel free to email me and I will fill you in there instead to not spoil it for any of your readers who don’t want to know ;-)

    1) I love silver. I just don’t think I pull off gold very well being so pale. :-(

    2) Popcorn is a must for my boyfriend and I as well at the theater. We ALWAYS bring our own drinks though. We usually share a small just fine, so we will sneak some diet coke 20 ozs in my purse and pull them out right as the lights go dark. haha I’m sorry but $15 dollars for a two drink and medium popcorn meal is NOT a money saving combo people! :-)

    3) Totally a homebody on weeknights.

  18. Meredith 07.22.2010

    Panera is the best “fast food” around! That sandwich is one of my go-to’s. I’m in a rut…I always get the same thing. Not that it’s a bad thing :)
    1) I wear all multi-toned jewelry-cape cod style!
    2) I usually bring dark chocolate raisnets…weakness!
    3) homebody…great nights to stay in and cook!

  19. heather 07.22.2010

    You should definitely read the Twilight books if you enjoy reading, they are MUCH better than the movies. Although I still see the movies when they come out each time! I was skeptical when my mother-in-law sent the first one home with me, but then I could hardly put them down until I had read all four.
    * I mix and match jewelry, I have some of both. I lean towards silver though.
    *If I want candy at the movies I bring it, pop or popcorn is purchased there. Generally my husband and I get and share a pop and that’s it.
    *Total homebody on the weeknights. I have a dog and hate to keep him kenneled during working hours AND at night after work so anything we do is usually dog friendly – walks/dog park/frisbee.

  20. Tracy 07.22.2010

    So far Eclipse is the best movie… and it was the best book. You should definitely read the books before the next movie comes out. It’s a great series. As for your questions…

    - I wear yellow and white gold, and silver. I love the white medals in the summer time when my skin is tanner.

    - If I’m in the mood for a snack or drink, I bring it from home. My husband and I have a huge stash of candy from Christmas stocking stuffers.

    - I’m a homebody most of the time during the week. I occasionally go to happy hours and some times out to dinner, but usually wait for the weekend to go out late. I like to come home and relax after a long day at work.

  21. Pretty sure it’s Fiji apples at Panera:)

    1. silver jewelry
    2. when I get to a movie (rare!) it’s either nothing, as I’m too cheap, or maybe some starburst?
    3. homebody!

  22. My husband went and saw Eclipse with me (not my idea OR his) and this is his description of the movie: “I love Bella more!” “No, I love Bella more!” (Fighting) “I love Bella more!” “No, I love Bella more!” (Fighting) “I love Bella more!” “No, I love Bella more!” (Fighting). HAHA I think you get the idea.

  23. Jo 07.22.2010

    1. I don’t tend to wear jewellary but if I do it tends to be beads.
    2. I take snacks to the movies :) In Britain one of our cinema snacks is pic’n’mix which I usually buy in the supermarket then smuggle in!
    3. I like to get out whenever I can weekday or not, but if I’m working the next day then I try to be home for 10.

    I adored Eclipse and can’t wait for the next movie! I read the books and can’t quite work out how they can make the last book into 2 movies, unless they do some rewrites which would be a shame!

  24. Daisy 07.22.2010

    You finally saw Eclipse! wahoo. Read the fourth book, it is so good (full of suprises) and I’m guessing you don’t realllly want to know the answers to the questions you asked about it! ;)

    1) Silver is my main choice. I have a standard repertiore of rings and braceletts. Thought i have a lot of gold jewels for swtiching it up! More for nights out on the town.
    2) Bring: nips to spike our soft drinks (yes my gf’s and I do this. we’re boozebags.) Buy: Popcorn – like you, I can’t resist.
    3) I like to get out and do stuff. But that always costs $. Last week I was out at events almost every night!! This week I was home everynight. so I like a good variety. Nights out help me get through the week!

    • Ashley 07.22.2010

      LOL love this nips comment! My gf’s and I have snuck in mini wine bottles to chick movies haha

  25. Keely 07.22.2010

    I LOVED Eclipse! (What’s not to love about good looking guys running around shirtless?) You should definitely read the books – how do you stand the suspense?! Warning: Don’t start reading the series until you have time to finish all the books because you will not be able to put them down!

    Have you tried Panera’s PoppySeed Strawberry Chicken Salad? Strawberries, blueberries and grilled chicken. What’s not to love?It’s the best food-related discovery I’ve made all summer. You have to check it out!

    You’ve convinced me to track down the nut butter tent at the Farmer’s Market on Saturday. Peanut butter is my weakness… well, one of them. :) Thanks for the tip.

  26. Ashley S 07.22.2010

    Looks like a Fuji apple to me, which are the BEST!

    • AJ 07.22.2010

      I agree; it appears to be a Fuji

  27. Jessie 07.22.2010

    I am so glad I am not the only one who thought the 2nd one was better! Everyone so far has disagreed with me!

    1. I am a Silver or White Gold kind of gal.
    2. I like to buy movie popcorn but bring my own candy.
    3. I am such a homebody, but am happy to go out on weeknights as long as I go straight from work. I have the hardest time getting motivated to do anything once I get home.

  28. Alaina 07.22.2010

    Obsessed with that sandwich grilled, even though I worked there (I just typed “lived” instead of “worked”…which should tell you something) for over a year and a half. Also pretty sure they serve Fuji apples.

    1. I really wear very little jewelry, but what I do wear is mostly silver, though I’m not opposed to the occasional gold piece.
    2. We always bring stuff, unless we happen to get one of those free coupons from my parents MovieWatchers account at AMC :D We generally pack granola bars and sodas.
    3. Ummmmmm I really don’t know these days! Me and my friends all just turned 21, so back when we were underage, we would usually stay in and watch a movie or have a few drinks, but now…I foresee much more going out during the week.

  29. Caroline 07.22.2010

    1. Silver
    2. Bring my own…shhhhh!
    3. homebody…but this week I went to see Eclipse on Monday night (Team Edward!!) and last night had Girls Night Out! Now I’m already worn out!

  30. Beth @ bethcooks 07.22.2010

    1. Both! I love gold jewelry when I’m going out or dressing up though :)
    2. I don’t usually get snacks. We go out to dinner first…
    3. I get stir crazy if I’m home ALL WEEK. Have to go out to dinner at least once.

  31. Julie S. 07.22.2010

    Oh, you should’ve read the books! (Can’t believe you didn’t!) Although, I’ve been really impressed w/ how true the movies are to the books. They do a really good job of bringing the books to life. I’m definitely Team Edward even though Robert Pattinson just doesn’t do it for me.

    1. either, depending on what color/shade of clothes I’m wearing
    2. I always smuggle in a drink, sometimes a snack, too (like a granola bar). Every once in a while I’ll splurge on some popcorn.
    3. homebody!

  32. Jen 07.22.2010

    1. Do you wear gold or silver jewelry?
    I don’t wear much but what I do wear is generally silver.
    2. Do you bring your own snacks to the movies, buy them there, or go snackless?
    Sometimes I take something with me, but popcorn is a MUST, I agree!
    3. Are you a homebody during the week, or do you like to get out and do stuff?
    Depends, it’s so hard in the summer because there’s so much going on but it has be so freakin hot I just don’t want to do ANYTHING!

    You should definitely read the Twilight books. The movies are nothing compared to the books. Also, you should go see Inception. GREAT movie.

  33. Nicole 07.22.2010

    Ok so you have to read the Twilight books! But be warned it consumes your life..I couldn’t put them down.

    1.) Silver

    2.) usually sneak in a snack/occasionally buy

    3.) homebody!

  34. Sami 07.22.2010

    I’m the SAME way. I too had an irregular experience last night! I was up until 1AM! Ugh. IT was worth it though! Anyway, I’m glad you had a fun night with your Momma! I had a great one with my Pops! :)

    1. I barely have ANY gold jewelry, so I mostly wear silver. I think I’d wear it more if I owned more of it!

    2. I always bring an apple or something to munch on at the movies unless I’m going right after a meal like lunch or dinner, then I’m usually not in a munchy mood.

    3. I’d LOVE to be at home cooking or something and relaxing, but usually I’m either at the gym after work, or class, or both! :)

  35. Sarah 07.22.2010

    1. Mostly silver jewelry mixed up with some color every now and then, depending on the outfit.
    2. I almost always sneak snacks in. 100 calorie bags of popcorn are a favorite thing to bring :)
    3. Total homebody!

  36. Sara 07.22.2010

    Wooo, movie on a Wednesday night? Live it up, girl! ;)
    1. I wear mostly silver jewelry.
    2. Depends on my mood. If my hubby and I want candy, we usually sneak it is cause it’s so much cheaper. But part of the fun of the movies is the popcorn, so we’ll buy that there.
    3. I like to get out and do stuff during the week.

  37. Mikael 07.22.2010

    Yeah you definitely need to read Breaking Dawn before that movie comes out. Likely they’ll cut a lot out. Get on that girly! Haha! I’ll admit it’s not the best literature but it can be entertaining.

    1- Both silver and gold! Sometimes at the same time! Haha, only my rings. I have a silver ring for my right hand and my gold Claddagh ring for my left.
    2- Usually I’l take something with me. Megaplex food isn’t exactly the most healthy. But sometimes I’ll share a popcorn with someone.
    3- I do both! I have nights that I like in, but I love going out with my friends too. During the school year, much more of a homebody.

  38. Kendel 07.22.2010

    My younger brother is Edward’s doppelganger… he’s been swooned over so many times since the beginning of the Eclipse craze that it’s starting to go to his head. Not the best resemblance in the photos on this post… but you can get the idea! http://travelingtogether.wordpress.com/2010/04/09/usa-holiday-recap/

  39. Cynthia 07.22.2010

    I love Panera’s Chicken Tortilla Soup too :)
    1. Both. Depending on my outfit. Gold for brown, cream, olive green..etc. Silver for pink, white, grey…etc. (you get the jist)
    2. I definitely go for the small popcorn..I agree it is a MUST..even if I don’t finish it, I think it’s a staple for being in a movie theater.
    3. Homebody….well if and when I’m home from work at a decent hour….sometimes I have to be at the office until midnight….UGH!! ;0

  40. Dawn Patricia 07.22.2010

    Ohhh! I loved Eclipse! It was SO good (and I’m not a Twilight fan at ALL). I thought it was so cute seeing all the girls and women quite a bit older than me (gasp!) in their t-shirts cheering and loving on Jacob and Edward. Ha! That will be me during the X-Games! I don’t wear ANY jewelry unless it’s my engagement/wedding ring which I wear on my *middle* finger due to some weight loss since my husband got down on one knee three years ago…and I actually don’t bring snacks or buy them at the movie theater. It’s for practical reasons alone I assure you, I don’t want to have to get up to use the ladies room and miss even a minute of the movie! I’m a total homebody. All the time. I love to cook at home and hang out there, which is funny because during college I was always out doing something! Have a great day! :)

  41. Sarah Sue 07.22.2010

    My answers:
    1. I am not a fan of gold. I have platinum for my wedding rings, and silver for most everything else.
    2. BYOS.. For sure
    3. Homebody!

  42. Angharad 07.22.2010

    Um Dan and I did a fridge/pantry inventory and cull the other night and it was SCARY!

    My Must Have Movie Munchie

    Jul 22nd, 2010 by admin

    It’s a fact that I turn into a pumpkin around 7pm on weeknights.

    Sure, I’ll go for the occasional late night walk or after dinner bike ride, but I’m more likely to be in my PJs than a party dress on Monday-Thursday evenings. Last night was different though. I let my hair down, threw the rules out the window and went to the movies!

    IMG_9665

    Wheee! It’s true – my Mom and I spent the evening with a wolf and a vampire…

    IMG_9664 IMG_9666

    Aka, we finally saw Eclipse! If loving a hundred year old vampire in a teenager’s body is wrong, I don’t want to be right. TEAM EDWARD! I am this close to getting a poster for my bedroom wall. ;)

    eclipse-poster1[1]

    I drooled over the luscious vampire watched the movie intently with a small bag of popcorn on my lap. I can’t go to the movies without getting popcorn – it’s not possible. Although, at $5.25 for a small bag, I wish I could break the habit!

    IMG_9671

    Our verdict? The second movie was better but we love all things Twilight so, of course, we loved Eclipse. I can’t wait for the 4th installment! Anyone know when it’s coming out? Do Edward and Bella actually get married? Will Bella turn into a willing vampire?! I should read the book… ;)

    After the movie, my Mom and I sat down to a light dinner at Panera. You Pick 2 of a Mediterranean Veggie ‘Wich and Chicken Tortilla Soup.

    IMG_9672

    The soup was SOUPER zesty and a tad spicy. I dug it!

    IMG_9673 IMG_9674

    This sandwich is what I was most excited for though. Salty, zippy, crunchy and that bread is just to die for. Squishy tomato basil with just a hint of cinnamon in the crust. I swear I tasted it. So unexpected!

    IMG_9675 IMG_9677

    Rounded out with a crunchy apple. Does anybody know what kind of apples Panera serves? I love the small size and perfect crunch. :)

    IMG_9676

    This morning, after THE most humid morning Mom walk, I crushed my hunger with a sweet breakfast of Life Cereal + Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze and a Honey Roasted Peanut Butter + Banana English Muffin!

    DSC_0001

    My hot and squishy Thomas 100% Whole Wheat English Muffin was slathered with some of the honey roasted peanut butter my friend gave me. I am becoming addicted to this stuff – it is CRAZY good!

    DSC_0005

    This Life Cereal was a total impulse purchase at the store. I love this perfectly crunchy, lightly sweet cereal with all my heart. Plus it is insanely delish with USVAB, as are ALL cereals, imo!

    DSC_0006

    Filling and tasty. :)

    Well I didn’t have any leftovers from last night’s dinner, and I ate all my pre-made salads for the week, so I dug around and packed a Sampler Style Lunch!

    Including some Basha Hommus and Wheat Thins.

    Crunchy and creamy – an ace combo.

    Not to be outdone by a Pink Lady Apple and roasted almond butter. Ummm – Ben and I did an inventory the other night and realized we have 10 jars of various kinds of peanut and/or almond butter. Out. Of. Control!

    Last, but not least, a 100 Calorie Jiffy Pop bag of popcorn. I’ve found this particular flavor of 100 calorie popcorn to be pretty decent, actually!

    To be eaten here and there during the afternoon. Work has been absolutely nuts lately – no time for a leisurely lunch, that’s for sure. :? I’d rather be busy than bored to death though!

    1. I mainly wear gold – apart from my wedding band – I love love love gold jewellery!

    2. Sometimes I bring my own sweets (cheeky) other times I go all out with the popcorn…but often I go to the movies after dinner and go snackless! The horror!

    3. I am turning into a homebody more and more as I get older (ha! I’m only 26!) but I think working full time does that to you :P
    In the summer I go out way more in the evenings than in the evil midwestern winter. You know how that is…

    I have no idea what happened to my comment there – eek!! Feel free to delete.

    1. Silver. I feel naked without silver earrings.
    2. I don’t go to the movies very often, so I like to get popcorn when I go. Sometimes I skip it if I’ve just eaten.
    3. I’m a homebody pretty much all the time, not just during the week. I should get out more, really.

  45. Maily 07.22.2010

    1) I’m a silver gal. I hate the look of gold. yuck.
    2) I always go snackless. Eating while watching a movie is a distraction to me… I’ll get the occasional slushie once in a while though, but that’s it!
    3) I’m a totally homebody! I think it’s cus I’m too lazy to get dress & go out haha

  46. Neen 07.22.2010

    OMG READ THE BOOKS you’ll love em!!

    1. Do you wear gold or silver jewelry?
    gold rings and a silver links of london bracelet and a a silver links of london necklace.
    2. Do you bring your own snacks to the movies, buy them there, or go snackless?
    take my own thier way too expensive at the cinema for stuff that will kill my diet anyway

    3. Are you a homebody during the week, or do you like to get out and do stuff?
    ohhhhh pumpkin by about 6.03pm!!!

  47. Run Sarah 07.22.2010

    I can’t wait to see Eclipse – I am almost through the book!
    1) White gold & silver!
    2) I take my own – I’ve even been known to sneak in microwave popcorn.
    3) I prefer being at home during the week!

  48. Yasmin 07.22.2010

    What a great idea to have a date night with your momma! I miss mine, we used to go to the movies all the time when we lived in the same city.
    1) I love silver, no doubt!
    2) I always sneak in my own snack like a Larabar, nuts, or trail mix. I used to work at a movie theatre and the smell of the popcorn makes me nauseous now :)
    3) I am such a homebody it’s not even funny. By the time I get home from work I am exhausted and the last thing I want to do is drag myself out.

  49. Leesh 07.22.2010

    You should read Breaking Dawn to find out what happens before watching the movie. Did you read all the other books? I read Breaking Dawn first only because I found the book and had no idea what it was about or that it was part of a series.

    As for the movies, I liked Twilight first, then Eclipse and sadly, New Moon was my least favorite (Although I loved the introduction of the wolves).

    1. I love gold jewelry. My engagement ring and wedding band are white gold and although I love them both, I rather wear gold. So I bought myself a little tiny gold band to wear on my ring finger.
    2. I usually bring little snacks with me (water and skinny sticks) but I love getting a combo of ice tea, popcorn and Malteasers or Sour Patch Kids.
    3. I wish I was a homebody but lately, I have been going out after work twice a week for drinks. It’s summertime, I should be out enjoying the beautiful weather and save the homebody time for the winter.

    Read the books! They are soooo good, I promise you won’t regret it. Read them all in two weeks. So good!

    1. both! Depends on what I am wearing! Most of my nice jewelry is silver but then I have some pieces from my grandmothers in gold that I love.
    2. I take my own, to much $$ not too.
    3. I am usually home during the week. But I have noticed lately in the summer with the nice weather and that it stays light so late, I am out much more weeknights.

    • Theresa 07.22.2010

      That should say: “I read them all in two weeks” :) oops…but seriously they are that good.
