Weekend Recap

Happy Monday! I am trying to survive the day since I hardly slept last night. I hope you all had a great weekend.

Friday night, my sister, brother, and I went to the Lady Antebellum concert. I will be doing a more complete concert recap post once I get the pictures off of my camera. This was my first time seeing them live and they were really good. I didn't go see them last year which I immediately regretted so I was glad to see them this time around.

Saturday morning, my other sister, my brother, and I went to breakfast with one of my aunts and cousins. We went to Jack's which is one of my favorite restaurants. I decided to get the Bananas Foster French Toast. I'm more of an egg breakfast person but this is one of the house specials so I thought I would give it a try. 

It was good but some bites were too sweet. I think I would just order regular french toast next time with plain bananas. There was some miscommunication between where and when we would meet which resulted in my brother, sister, and me waiting for 45 minutes at the restaurant for my aunt and cousin to show up.

So we didn't get done with breakfast until like 12:30 which meant I missed the 11:55 showing of The Hunger Games I wanted to go to. No problem right? I'll just go Sunday. After breakfast, my sister and I went to an estate sale which was interesting. I had never been to one and there were so many interesting old items but in my opinion the prices were too high. The rest of the day was spent cleaning out my closet and watching some Season 3 of Gossip Girl. I love Chuck and Nate.

So it is Sunday morning, I wake up at 11:00 (don't judge) and decide to just throw some clothes on and get going to the movie theater since it's about 15 minutes from my house and I want a good seat (yes, I was going to the movie by myself).

This is where things go off plan. The rest of my family was either just getting up as well or waiting for breakfast to be made by my dad. It's about 11:20 at this point and my brother made me feel bad for leaving without eating breakfast that my dad was making. Ok, then I'll eat really fast. Then my brother says he wants to go too. Ok, fine I'll just go to a different movie theater but my nephew and niece want to come over and see him. Ok, they'll be right over and then we 'll go to a later movie. They come over but barely say two words to him. He finally decides that we should just go to the 12:45 movie that is playing up the street, note that it is 12:30 when he makes this decision. Also in all this craziness, I think my sister gets mad at me because I ask if she wants to go but never gives me a direct answer. We get to the movie theater right at 12:45 which is ok since there are previews but we ended up with seats that were just a bit to close to the screen for me. I read the book the previous weekend so I knew the story but my brother hadn't read it.

Hunger Games Tributes in Vanity Fair

I liked the movie. I would give it an 8 out of 10. For those of you who have read & seen it, did you feel the ending was rushed? I did feel like there could have been a little bit more detail added in the movie. I'm sure they could have added 15 more minutes to the movie and nobody would have complained. I liked Cinna more in the book than in the movie. And I liked Effie more in the movie than in the book. I would have loved to seen more of Gale (Liam Hemsworth is cute!). I felt Woody Harrelson was the perfect Haymitch. I LOVED Katniss. She was a great heroine and Jennifer Lawrence protrayed the character perfectly.

What did you think of the movie? I plan on getting the second book and reading it this weekend so I can find out what happens next!
