WOW- I slept in to 8:15!!!!! (yes, I know that it’s a saturday and normal people sleep in on saturdays but I NEVER sleep in!) It felt great!
Last night Ryan and I debated on options on what to do….there was always going to a bar (not a big fan, plus it was freezing), watching a movie on the couch (did that the night before) or go out to a movie. We decided to go to a movie! We went to a late (10:00) showing of Atonement, which I had been DYING to see! But the really great part was the theater we went to…it’s one of Tampa’s historical landmarks and only plays 1 movie a night..it’s a little old fashioned theater that sells hot chocolate, tea, imported chocolate bars and beer and wine! I got a cup of decaf herbal tea and was set! Everyone sits in balcony seats and there is actually an orchestra that comes out to play from under the floor before the movie starts (replacing typical previews). The best part is that it’s not any more expensive than just going to AMC but the experience is SO much better!!!!! Atonement was great too..I love Kiera Knightly and have a weakness for sweeping war epics. Favorite movies include the English Patient, Gone with the Wind, Legends of the Falls–I’m a sap! I really enjoyed this one though. I felt bad because it wasn’t really Ryan’s style, but he was so nice to take me because I told him it wasn’t his kind of movie to begin with. What a guy :).
This morning I made some oats with 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup water, 1 tbsp ground walnuts and 1 banana. They turned out creamy and delicious. I usually eat Steel Cut oats at my house but keep some basic Quick Oats here at Ryan’s to make. It’s nice to change it up! My total breakfast calories were about 400.
At 10:30 I’m going to a power yoga class. Last night Ryan asked if he could come with me so this might be interesting! I took him to a yoga class with me when I lived in South Carolina and he was so impressed because the next day he was too sore to move! And he’s a fit guy–always at the gym swimming and working out. Yoga just uses completely different muscles than what we usually use if we just work out at the gym, I guess. After yoga I’m sure we will pick up lunch….every weekend we do this: we drive together and Ryan stops at Quiznos and picks up a sub and then drives me to my favorite little cafe and picks me up a sandwich or soup or something. We are opposites in what we like for lunch but at least we get to bring it home and eat it together! It’s funny!
