Things I Did This Weekend...

It's been a good weekend. The rainy, cool weather has been a welcome change from hot and sunny and yesterday we had a yummy brunch with my family.  Last night Jason and I saw our first 3D movie…Star Wars Phantom Menace!  It was the perfect excuse to take my new Star Wars shirt on an outing.  And, after being really skeptical about the idea of 3D movies, I am officially a convert!  I can’t say much about the style of the glasses though.  This morning my friend Shannon and I headed off to Gateway for coffee and My Week With Marilyn.  What a great movie.  Michelle Williams does an outstanding job as Marilyn Monroe and definitely deserves an Oscar for her role.  The story is both funny and sad and I left the cinema with a smile on my face and a lump in my throat.  The movie is based on a book called The Prince, The Showgirl and Me, which I think I need to get my hands on sooner rather than later.  Speaking of books, I picked up the Virgin Suicides for a whole 32 bucks!  Yay sales!  Anyway, here are some random pics from the weekend:

From left to right:  reading Atonement on the couch, the coffee shop from this morning, a Mother Nutter for breakfast - Nutella and Strawberries on a panini, the yummiest Cafe Mocha ever, my bargain copy of the Virgin Suicides and a mouse brooch from Space, movie tickets and funny looking glasses, Bye Bye Blackbird in Atonement and a hamster face.

Now I am off to watch Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1...again:)
