The outlet mall just happens to be nearby so after some additional shopping (finally found Pride and Prejudice with Keira! Woo hoo!) and dinner we headed home. All in all a good day but nothing compared to Saturday.
Saturday I FINALLY saw AVATAR! And yes, I realize everyone else has most likely already seen this movie and I'm beind the times, but, if like me, you are busy and find it hard to find the time to go watch a three hour movie, I have to tell you: this is worth it and you really DON'T want to miss seeing it in the theater. I actually went to the IMAX theater and it was truly amazing. It really does live up to the hype. The 3-D is just spectacular and the story leaves you a bit speechless. I had dreams of this movie after watching it and still love to relive the adventure in my head. It was done really well and I found it very moving.
And the glasses were not nearly as hideous as I had imagined...or were they? Me and my sister:
Sunday never had a chance at beating out the coolness of Saturday. And because I had taken two full days to enjoy myself, well, the guilt won. I can't stand not making progress and feeling lazy so I decided this morning to finally start painting our bedroom. We bought the paint a week ago and it's been sitting there waiting on me to get up the nerve to go through with it.
The first coat is done. That, in itself, seems like a battle has been won tonight. I always forget how much hard work painting really is. It should seriously be a sport. Maybe I'm out of shape. Okay, yes, I AM out of shape, but the fact that painting makes my arms feel like jello is just sad. It took us about three to four hours to tape, cut in with a paintbrush, and roll the entire room. And we even had to run out for more paint. Another fun thing we do: underestimate. We're hoping the next gallon will be enough for the second coat we'll be putting on tomorrow. The good news? I will sleep well tonight. Oh, and so far, it looks amazing. Love the color. I'll try to post some before and after photos once we're done. I love those. I watch way TOO much HGTV and DIY network.
Considering the fact that I also managed to work out all three days (2 miles Friday, 2 miles Saturday and 3 miles this morning) on top of painting...well, needless to say, I'm feeling pretty beat right now.
How was your weekend? Do anything exciting? Have you seen Avatar? Did you love it?
