Valentines Day Recap

As you know (from my previous post) my grand plans for the weekend were kind of spoiled due to me mixing up schedules.  The hubby and I did get out on Sunday and enjoy an entire day to ourselves.  It was super nice to just chill out, not have a schedule to keep and just do whatever we wanted.  As soon as church was over hubby and I went to grab some lunch.  We decided to go to Tulsa and take our time with lunch.  I talked him into eating at Cheddar's....YUM!  We haven't eaten there in years.  It was so nice and laid back.  We were hoping to attend the 3:00 showing of Avatar at the IMAX but found out while waiting for lunch that that time was sold out.  We then decided to stay in town and wait for the 6:30 showing. 

As stated before, we ate our lunch without being rushed.  We just sat and enjoyed each others company.  After wasting about 2 hours on lunch, we decided to go to the mall and look around.  Hubby wanted to go to the apple store anyway, because of some issues with the new phone we upgraded to.  We did not buy anything....we just walked and looked and enjoyed our time.

When we bought our tickets to see Avatar, they told us to be an hour early to get in line.  That was the only real time factor we had on our day.  It worked out soooo perfectly.  I have never been one to say I am very frugal but in one area I definitely am.  We stopped at QuikTrip to get pop and snacks to sneak into the movie.  I do refuse to pay the prices of concessions at the's absurd!!  We waited in line for probably 45 minutes before we got to go into the theater.  I did not know this but found out that my hubby had never been to an IMAX.  This was his first experience.  How fun that I got to share in that!! 

Let me just say that after 3 hours of watching Avatar in 3D, I felt exhuberant!!  What a FABULOUS movie!!  If you haven't seen it, you MUST!!!  This was one of the best movies that I believe I have seen in a long long time.  The 3D effect at the IMAX is to die for!!  If I was doing a review for this movie, I would definitely give high marks on every aspect!!  I kind of want to go see it again. 

Well, a laid back day turned into a laid back night at home and preparations to start another week in the Conner-Mock Blend.  All in all, my Valentine's Day couldn't have been any more perfect!  A fiasco turned into a time of refreshing.  The good Lord above knows what we all need at the right time.  It's funny how you make these grand plans at times, only to have them terminated by something and the plans that come out of that seem to be even more perfect than before.  I hope that makes sense to you.  I hope that your valentine's day was just as lovely as mine was.
