Today was an absolutely lovely day. I think I’ve started most of my posts with that sentiment this week, but it’s absolutely true. I was part of a very small population that had yet to see the beloved new Disney movie Frozen and the opportunity came up for an afternoon out! We have a small, vintage movie theatre in town that is just charming. The new owners have done a great job with it and it was a real treat. We found out that it was the Sing Along version instead of the basic film so we were a little wary, especially when the guy at the ticket box kept telling all of the youngsters to “sing loud!” … nooooo. Luckily there weren’t any karaoke ‘stars’ in the audience so I could actually hear all of the songs. The concessions stand in there is great too! We got popcorn, a soft pretzel with cheese (my weakness), soda, iced tea, and affogato with caramel sauce (espresso shot poured over ice cream) for less than $20! Reasonable movie concessions with a gourmet twist? Now that is a good deal! Plus, that fancy espresso thing was super delicious and I want another one, ASAP! Our next date night is totally at the Pix. They’ve won me over for sure. Oh, and I finally got to unload the remaining $8 Pix giftcard I’ve been holding in my wallet for the last 7 years – no joke!
My music taste is a little different than the average bear just because I’m… a little weird. Give me the classical music station and I’ll swoon but I’m also a die hard T-Swift and Hilary Duff fan. What category does that put me in? As far as country goes that’s even farther down on the list than rap, if that’s possible – they at least tie for last place. I have a sweet spot for folk music and Americana but the second you get twang, tequila, or tractors, I’m out. Cross the line into ‘country’ territory and I am completely unimpressed. At least these ones have quirky, interesting titles. Doesn’t mean I’m going to listen to them, though!

Think of any more that my short research didn’t grab? Leave me a comment! Or attack me for my super weird music tastes, whatever floats your boat. Happy holidays!
