Girls’ Night + Movie Day

Happy Sunday everyone! It’s so nice outside, I can’t believe it’s the middle of August in southern Indiana (hopefully I didn’t just jinx it).

This weekend has been the perfect mix of fun and relaxing. Lately I’ve struggled will feeling overwhelmed with everything I need to get done, or all I do is lay on the couch and watch Netflix. But this weekend I think I finally achieved balance.

Friday night my friends and I had a girls’ night planned. Originally we were going to all dress up and try out a new bar downtown…but then we decided to sort of dress up and go to our normal watering hole. If it ain’t broke, am I right?

(BTW, these photos are all terrible iPhone photos because I cannot for the life of me remember to bring my actual camera anywhere. My apologies.)

The five of us had a really great time catching up over drinks and eating handfuls of free popcorn. Photo1(3)

We even had the fortune of being serenaded by a random accordion player. You just never know who will be around downtown.

Right. Normally on Friday night, I hit the wall around 10pm—I mean, even though it’s the beginning of the weekend, it’s still a work night. But we were having such a great time that I got home around 11:30 and promptly went to bed.

Saturday I woke up bright and early (for me) at 8:30. It was gray and rainy, which are ideal conditions for a movie day.

After chilling around the apartment and going to the grocery, I went over to my friend Kristyn’s apartment for lunch and a movie.

If you haven’t spent a rainy day eating frozen pizza and M&Ms and watching a movie from your childhood, please do it stat. Seriously. This was so simple, but such a fun thing to do.

Later that evening, I went to run some errands with my friend Meagan, and when she showed up at my place, we were dressed like twins.

In all honesty, I wasn’t wearing a scarf until I saw her, but I just couldn’t resist.

The two of us did a little shopping, and then headed to a local sushi restaurant to cash in the coupons we had randomly gotten for free rolls. (PTL.) I stuck to my unrefined, Midwestern tastes and got the Philadelphia roll—which was really good, but it’s hard to screw that up. 🙂

To round out my Saturday, I spent the evening on the couch with one of my favorite movies as a kid.

Moment of silence to recognize how hot Marlon Brando was as a young man.

I was such a dorky kid (and am still a dorky adult)—I was OBSESSED with old musicals. Seriously, my collection of MGM musicals on videotape was incredible. As soon as the movie was over, I may or may not have looked into beginner tap lessons for adults.

And now it’s Sunday, and I’m soaking in every last bit of weekend I have left. I hope you all have had lovely weekends, and enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
