I had plans with my Little Sis to head to downtown to the big City Market for a fun Saturday morning, but due to the rain, we changed our plans. Samone snapped a few pics of us with my phone……

(I really don’t think in person that my hair looks THAT gray!!!)



It seemed like a perfect movie day, and we just happen to have a new Movie Theatre! Cinetopia! So we checked it out. We got tickets to the Parlor. In the Parlor, it pretty much looks like a great big living room.There was a fire place, book shelves with actual books, (we debated if we could actually pick them up and browse through them or not) and lot’s of cozy seating. You can bring food in from the concession stand, or order from the menu. We decided to order from the menu. I ordered the Mediterranean Wrap with Sweet Potato fries and a Latte. This is the third time I’ve ordered food in a Movie theatre, and I don’t think I’ll do that again. I alway sneak a coffee in, so I like that I can order that, but it’s just weird for me to eat in the dark! The wrap was good, but the fries were NOT Sweet Potato fries. I’m not really sure what they were. They were fried sticks of some sort, but due to the dark, I couldn’t tell, so I just didn’t eat them, and you know what? I didn’t need the points anyhow. 🙂

We saw the Adam Sandler, Drew Barrymore movie.


It was cute, but there were some really corny parts that would have made the movie a LOT better if they’d just left those parts out…in my opinion. Mike say’s that’s what makes it an Adam Sandler movie!

Anyhow, it was a great rainy morning!

    Hey Laurie!

    I’ve tried that method with the cantaloupe several times, and I always end up with an overripe one, or it’s just kinda mushy! My mom and daughter pick a winner every time!! I swear they do! I’ll try again though. It’s one of my favorites!!

  2. I don’t know how to pick out a good mango, but a cantaloupe is fairly simple. You press on the end that has the round button thingy (technical term unknown!!). If it’s soft and aromatic, the cantaloupe is ripe and should be delish!!!
