The Lego Movie and Post-Valentine's Day Candy!

I was determined to make this weekend, or at least today, awesome to make up for the past two awful weekends (last week having to put the family cat down and the weekend before that being sick).  I had heard good things about the Lego movie, so I used some movie gift certificates and brought Julie with me.  The nearest theater that we could have gone to to redeem the gift certificates has closed down so we had to take the subway a few stops to get to another theater to see it.  Meh, no biggie.  While we were killing some time after getting our tickets, we walked into the TJMaxx to browse, but didn't find anything worth buying.  We went back to the theater 20 minutes before the movie started and there was already a line forming for the movie, started alongside one wall and continuing to the other side of the hallway. o_0  I think we were the two oldest people there that were not parents bringing their kids.
The movie was entertaining and definitely had some laugh out loud moments.  The animation was pretty cool because the characters had to move like Legos would move.  I wouldn't say I would buy the movie, but I could see myself renting it on Redbox at some point.

After the movie, we went to Target to hit up some post-Valentine's Day candy.  Julie got some fruity items and I came away with chocolate (peanut butter M&Ms and Reese's hearts).  Then we went to Ulta so that I could exchange the dark brown eyebrow pencil I bought last week for a black one.  The dark brown was just not dark enough.  I tried on the black when I got back to my parents' house, and it's a little intense, but used sparingly, I think I can make it work.  Julie bought us some dinner from Crisp and Juicy.  My stomach is now full of chicken, starch and tea.  Sleepyyy.

Thanks for the Lego review, sounds fun. But probably not a movie I would rent from Netflex (smile) maybe if it ends up on Netflex's "watch now" listing I might. Glad you received my card and are feeling 100% better. Have a great week end.

Me I happened to notice on your side bar...the labels and saw crocheting...clicked it on to see and WOW you crocheted flowers. Something I had been looking for, made two flowers so far. Oh and I just became a follower, don't know why I never did that....I read your blogs everytime you post one. So I guess I am a follower. (smile)
