I hope you all had a great weekend and were able to enjoy some down time with your loved ones. Today actually marks the first day that I have left the house for something other than a doctors appointment or a visit to the ER, so YAY! Normally, curling up in my pajamas with my puppy and a good movie sounds like a great way to unwind from a long week, but after doing that for an ENTIRE week, I was starting to go a little stir crazy!
Since my weekend wasn’t full of any exciting adventures to share with you all, I thought I’d share some of my exciting eats from the week, a funny but true text from a friend and a list of all the movies I watched over the past few days, complete with ratings so you can decide if you want to watch them or not! So let’s get into it!
After reading about all of the deliciousness that is acai bowls online, I was really excited to hear that the Jamba Juice by my house just recently started serving them! Since my parents happened to be in the neighborhood, I convinced them to stop in and pick up one for me to try and it was just as delicious as I thought it would be! Mine was topped with bananas, blueberries, coconut and granola. I might be slightly addicted to these now, so good thing Jamba Juice just ran a Groupon, because I know I will be enjoying many of these in the near future!
I know this photo doesn’t look as amazingly delicious as what you would expect from a chocolate chip pancake, but I was too busy eating them as soon as they came out of the pan to get a photo of them when they were finished to share with you. I think chocolate chip pancakes may be the ultimate comfort food. Good thing I had a couple left over so I can heat them up for breakfast tomorrow! YUM!
I’ve been feeling a little down these last couple of days. I attribute it mostly to having to much time on my hands. I’m used to constantly being on the go, so basically sitting still for a week has been a little rough. I was talking to one of my good friends about it and her response made me laugh so hard that I just had to share! Sometimes friends know exactly what to say to make you smile. That’s why friends are so awesome.
Now on to all of the movies I watched during the time I’ve been held captive at home injured and my thoughts on if they are worth your time to check out or not.
The Interview– MUST WATCH. Given all of the controversy around this movie, I feel like this is something you have to watch, even if it’s just out of curiosity. It was still a typical Seth Rogan/James Franco movie, so don’t expect anything different, even though it’s been making headlines.
If I Stay – WATCH. I was expecting this movie to be a little different than it actually turned out to be, but it was still really well done. It wasn’t the typical love story type movie the previews made it out to be, but still worth checking out. It made me cry like a baby though, so you’ve been forewarned!
Begin Again– WATCH. I actually didn’t know much about this movie before I watched it, but it’s definitely worth checking out. I’m going to be 100% honest with you though, I was on A LOT of pain meds when I was watching this one, so I don’t remember a ton about it besides liking it.
22 Jump Street– DON’T BOTHER. Is Channing Tatum hot? YES. Is this movie worth watching? No. End of story.
The Other Woman– WATCH. Cute and funny!
12 Dates of Christmas– WATCH. It’s your cute typical Christmas love story, but I liked it so much, I watched it twice.
Tammy– WATCH. I thought this would be one of those movies that showed all of the funny parts in the previews, but I was pleasantly surprised!
Chasing Christmas– DON’T BOTHER. There are plenty of other good Christmas movies out there.
Left Behind – DON’T BOTHER.
Into The Storm – SERIOUSLY DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME ON THIS ONE.
Mom’s Night Out – WATCH. Surprisingly funny!
Single Mom’s Club- WATCH. Also surprisingly cute and funny!
