friday's random thought list




OK, really only two items on the list, so I'm not sure if it qualifies as a legitimate order of business, but here goes nothing:

1.) I'm actually looking forward to going to the movies by myself tonight. Yes. I said it. Has anyone else see the episode of Friends where Rachael learns to eat lunch by herself and enjoys it? That's how I'm feeling right now. Social norms be damned (on a Friday, date night mind you!) I'm looking forward to it! Big popcorn to myself. Big soda to myself. And, my favorite part, the only person I have to consult as to what movie to see, is myself.

Although that last part might be hard to narrow down. It's between "The Runaways" and "Remember Me," which is altogether really surprising as all three main actors in the two movies made for horrible co-stars in a horribly comical movie that shall remain unnamed. (I hope I didn't offend too may "Twilight" fans out there, damn, I said it). In my defense, a.) Robert Pattinson is yummy and I think he might actually be a decent actor (but when you're that yummy, who cares?) and b.) I could use a decent rock and roll, drug addiction story line today.

Tough, tough choice.

2.) I got flowers at work today. Sorry. Just had to gloat a little. They're beautiful orchids and have brightened up our little corner at work tremendously. To the person who sent them, thank you! You've put a big smile on my face and given me bragging rights for the day. Although I don't think you read this blog, so I'll send you a text right now...as I head out the door. To the movies, I go!

Happy Friday, everyone!

  4. I've gone to the movies alone before. It's pretty fun. You get to eat candy and don't really feel alone cuz you're in a dark theater! I thought about going to a movie tonight, but I think I'm gonna Insta-Netflix it tonight instead!

    That skirt is darling...

  5. I love the outfit and the pictures. I was considering going to the movies alone tonight or tomorrow. I like the idea of not missing out just because you are by yourself.
    P.S. I really enjoyed Remember Me!
    Great Post!

  6. My favorite outfit so far! Have fun at the movies! I've always wanted to eat in public or go to the movies by myself. I think it takes a lot of confidence to be comfortable doing something on your own - like I would be evolving into a higher species or something equally as weird...

  8. Ha. Love everything you said in the paragraph about which movie to see.

    I saw "Man on Wire" alone. I mean, really alone. I had the whole theatre to myself! But it was seriously one of the most inspiring experiences of my life.

  9. Love the lace skirt! It's really pretty :) I love going to the movies by myself, no one to argue over which movie to see!

  10. Wearing a skirt from a naughty lingerie shop? Niiice.

    I have gone to the movies many times by myself, never felt odd at all. Definitely a good mind set to let yourself defy the social norm!

  24. I'm just going to say it--I'm pretty sure you've perfected dressing. Most bloggers have hits and misses, but I can't even think of the last time you didn't look completely outstanding!

    Also, I love doing things alone. Feels weird at first, but so empowering!

  25. that skirt is perfect to lighten up the outfit. love it!
    I totally go to the movies by myself. Nice little escape. I saw "remember me", and it was good but terribly marketed. It was one of the saddest things I've seen in a while, not at all what I was expecting. And Robert Pattinson is actually a decent actor. Watch him in "Little Ashes" where he plays the crazy eccentric surrealist artist Salvidor Dali. It'll blow your mind.

  27. as much as I love my husband, I enjoy spending some quality time by myself. Whether its shopping, going to a movie or to lunch alone. Every girl needs their alone time.

    I love your skirt, you look amazing (as always)
