It was Harry Potter Mania at the theater last night!
I didn’t see anyone crazy enough to be in costume, but the fact that 30 minutes before start time the line to get in the theater wrapped around the building was insanity on its own. The line literally twisted around the building and ours was only one of 27 showings at that location alone. Insane!$!$
I liked the movie, but I always need to see the Harry Potter Movies at least twice in the theater to let it sink in. As was expected, they managed to leave quite a bit of details out that were in the book, but who really wants to sit through a 5 hour movie? I always find it interesting to see how others interrupt scenes on the screen as opposed to how I see them in my head. Sometimes its spot on and others they are way off.
Seeing how much they cut from the sixth book, really makes me happy they are making the 7th book a two parter. Hopefully, this will give them a little leeway to have as much detail as possible. 😉
Yesterday afternoon I was very anxious at my desk with the excitement of my after work plans. I love having fun things to look forward too!
I munched on a TJ’s Peanut Butter Crunchy Granola Bar around 3:00pm when my tummy started feeling empty.
After work I had to battle lovely rush hour traffic to meet my Dad, Aunt and Uncles at the new Mellow Mushroom location on the east side of town.
If you are a follower of my blog then you know how much I LOVE Mellow Mushroom. It is hands down my favorite pizza place. Even though it it a chain, I love how they manage to make each location feel very local and unique.
Sadly, enough no one was interested in splitting the absolute best thing on the menu with me. So I was forced to order a small Mega Veggie Pizza just for me. No worries, left over pizza is the best!
The Mega Veggie Pizza comes with sun dried tomatoes, spinach, jalapenos,
mushrooms, onions, black olives, tomatoes, broccoli, feta, banana peppers, artichoke hearts and tofu. Yum! As always, I special requested no mozzarella and no butter or parmesan on the crust.
I ate 2 delicious slices and saved the rest for another day.
I found it amusing my Dad rolled his eyes on what I was planning on ordered and ended up ordering the complete opposite.
While mine was overflowing with ever veggie possible his was overflowing with every meat possible. Got to love Dads. 🙂
Even though we arrived at the theater 40 minutes before our movie start time, the line to get in had already began to wrap around.
By the time it was our turn to enter the theater all of the seats in the middle section were gone. We had to begrudgingly take our seats on the side, but thankfully not in the front row.
I was craving a sweet movie treat, but did not have it into me to buy a jumbo candy pack from the concession stand. Instead I took advantage of the candy machines that were right outside our theater.
For 50 cents I got just the right amount of Peanut M&Ms needed to appease my craving.
I ended up getting home very late and did not even have it in me to turn my laptop on. I took Abbie out and went straight to bed.
This morning I woke up to some fresh Jillian pain. The 5 lb upgrade from yesterday left my arms a little sore. Always a good sign in my book! I repeated Level 1 of the 30 Day shred with the 5 lb weights again this morning, then cooled down and stretched to Detox Yoga #2 thanks to Yogadownload.com.
I decided to mix my breakfast bowl for the picture this morning, as this is how I really eat it. I am definitely a girl who loves to make a mess of my bowl or plate my mixing all the flavors together. 🙂
- 1/2 cup Graduate Meghann’s Mix
- 1/2 cup Meghann’s Running Mix
- Plain Oikos Yogurt
About halfway through eating my cereal I noticed something was off, like it was missing something. This was when I realized I had accidentally left the gran
ola out that I was planning on adding. I decided it was not worth it to get up and add it then, but I was definitely missing the granola this morning.
I’m so glad its Thursday. This week is going by painfully slowly. Sigh.
