Last week was an absolute whirlwind! I was playing catch up all week from my travel the prior week on emails, meetings, calls, and events. Sometimes I feel like going out of town can be so stressful because I have so much to do when I get back. The house is a disaster, my suitcase has exploded and taken over our bedroom, and I always have to retrain my body to get back on a regular workout routine (thats for a whole other post). Luckily I had carved out a little time for fun in my schedule - and the grand opening of the Alamo Drafthouse did not disappoint!
When Jonny and I first started dating we saw a new movie every week. As our schedules have gotten fuller, we are pretty picky about how we spend our time and until now have not had the option to enjoy dinner AND a movie in the same venue unless we drive at least 30 minutes from Denver. So I could not be more thrilled that their is now an Alamo Drafthouse (Sloans Lake) so close to us.
I bumped into a familiar face (Lacey from My Boring Closet - you met her here and here), at the grand opening and before exploring the theater, we were greeted by some rapping magicians on a tilt-o-whirl tuk tuk (I think??)... they insisted we take a ride and "raise the roof", which we of course could not pass up! I doubt they will be at every movie, but they definitely made for a wonderful first impression.
Jonny and I are already planning our next movie date and can't wait to try the full dine in movie experience. If you saw my instagram post last week, then you know that the weather was INSANE so getting dressed last week was a little interesting. I went with this new favorite, lightweight top ($16) (also comes in white)! I have worn it with these white jeans ($59) and these navy shorts ($125) too! And I wore my favorite OLD sailor trousers, so I am sorry to say they are out of stock, but I found a very similar pair here ($35) and here ($40).
What great movies have you seen lately? Would love to hear your recs!
