The Hunger Games

Okay, so. I just saw The Hunger Games yesterday. I read all the books months ago, and loved them so I was so excited to see it! I loved it. I thought they did a fabulous job staying true to the book, and the emotion you felt for the characters was amazing! I loved how they used very minimal music, and the cinematography was just beautiful.

On another note, I actually saw it ALONE! Yes. I went to the theater in the middle of the day and bought myself a ticket, popcorn, and sat there alone. Well, to be fair, I was on a "date." My boy lives in Georgia and was seeing the movie at the same exact time as me! It was cute. And I was actually surprised by how much I LOVED going alone! I will definitely be doing it again, date or no date ;) 

So, what did you think of the Hunger Games?
And, have you ever gone to a movie alone? Would you?

This is how to decorate.

So.....strange...but cool?

Okay, officially the coolest blog I've seen in a long time. LOVE!

^I take that back: THIS.

This past weekend I spent a day in DC....for the first time! I can't believe it took this long for me to finally visit. Loved it -- definitely need WAY more time though!

An American Woman in Italy

I am officially guilty of being a BAD blogger! SO sorry again! Will make it up to you all soon. I hope you're all well and are finding more time than I am to relax and enjoy the amazing weather (if you're in the northeast USA!)

I love these shots of Greece by Marilei, on Flickr.
I've been so busy lately that posting has gotten quite sparse -- sorry about that!
