Weekly Weekend Update

Friday I discovered a beautiful thing.

I have heard rumors about its greatness, and have listened to stories about this wonderful machine, but I for one had never experienced the power myself. Until this weekend.

I used a Red Box for the first time this weekend. That thing is amazing.

Sorry Blockbuster, you just lost another customer. I rented THREE movies this weekend for less then what I would have paid for ONE movie.

Simply amazing.

Friday we watched 17 Again. And let me just say, I totally get the Teenage Infatuation with Zac Efron. He is a cutie.

I LOVED this movie, it might be one of my new personal favs!

We also watched 7 pounds which I won't even discuss. Totally sad and depressing and left me with a movie-hangover. Not my kind of movie.

Saturday I woke up to coffee and chocolate chip waffles prepared by my husband. He is seriously the most amazing husband. I'm not the mushy type so I usually don't give him the credit he deserves, but he is definitely a great one. Better than any teeny-bopper zac efron.

I always thought coffee was disgusting until last week. But, I think my taste buds changed because now I think it is some great stuff. And my coffee-lovin' husband is excited! He has always wanted me to drink coffee with him and now I actually want to drink it, instead of gagging while he gulps it down by the gallons.

Later that day after Luke dragged me away from the TV, we went and purchased some end tables that match our coffee table. I have been wanting these tables for the past year and we finally decided to get them this weekend.

It was a good thing we did because they have now been discontinued and they only had one left in the store in our town- but the store in my parent's town had the other one so they went and picked it up for us.

I have to think it was perfect timing because we got an amazing deal on them due to the fact that they were discontinued. Yay!

Then we went to Hobby Lobby to get picture frames for the new tables. I got a little distracted and lost my reason for being at Hobby Lobby for a brief moment, because they had their ENTIRE stock of Christmas supplies out. It was crazy!
I think it is way to early, but no matter what time of the year it is, I go a little crazy when it comes to Christmas decorations. Luke had to literally pull me out by my arms.

Does anybody buy Christmas decorations this early?? Do you feel like its too early? I totally do.

Does anybody use Red box. It's my new love. Until American Idol starts again and then my love will be Ry Ry.

Hope you had a great weekend!

  10. Chocolate chip waffles for breakfast? He is definitely a keeper!

    I use Netflix, so I never go to Red Box. But I did just add 17 Again to my list on Netflix last night! Glad to hear a good review!

  11. It is NEVER too early to be thinking about Christmas decorations.

    I enjoyed '17 Again' too. In fact, that was when I finally saw that Zac Efron actually can act (as opposed to when he started on 'Summerland' and was awful).

  12. I love Red Box...there is one just a couple of minutes from our house and we use it whenever we want to rent a movie. Blockbuster who?

    Girl, I'm already listening to Christmas music in my car. HA! It's NEVER too early for Christmas in this house. I was in Hobby Lobby the other day and was in heaven. I've already started my Christmas shopping and will be starting Christmas giveaways on my blog next month. :)

    You are too cute...I swear, you don't take a bad picture!

    Have a great week!

  13. I was randomly in the grocery store once and saw redbox--and now would never back!! That thing is the best invention, and so cheap.

    And while I LOVE Christmas, August might be pushing it a little!! :)

  16. we use Red Box all the time. My husband even signed us up for free codes- they will send you a text on the first Monday of every month with a free movie rental for that night. As if Red Box could get any cheaper.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Isn't Red Box amazing ;)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Check out http://printable-coupons.blogspot.com/ She often lists codes for Redbox. That will save you even more $$$$

  20. I love Redbox! Once in a while you might get one that's scratched or messed up but to me, it's totally worth all the money you save. I laughed when you said Luke had to pull you out by your arms b/c that's exactly how it is when JD and I go to Hobby Lobby!

  21. I just love Red Box!! 17 Again was precious! Christmas seems to get here earlier and earlier! Haha! I love Christmas! :o)

    ReplyDelete
  22. First of all...I LOVE CHRISTMAS (per my blog about it the other day) no matter what time of year! So just imagine to yourself the giant smile I got looking at your pic with the trees AND flip flops!!!

    Second of all...I have been drinking coffee since I was 8 y.o. Hayden calls it the "drink of death" and what I would give if he would convert the way you have. It's fun to just sit and sip on coffee with someone you love. :) Yay for you and Luke!!!

  25. I have always wanted to try the Redbox thing, I just never think of it! HA! I love Hob lob and they have got some seriously cute Christmas things this year!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I've used Red Box a couple times and it is great as long as you turn the movies in on time! But working at a bank I have had a lot of customers come in with fraud on their accounts from Red Boxes as well..so I would be cautious...not to make you scared! but just so you know! You look so cute there in Hobby Lobby! I can't wait to put up the Christmas tree already!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Redbox is wonderful! It has saved us big time.. We're movie junkies! :)

    And yes, Christmas stuff out now is just too early! They started putting it out in our HL's before Kyah was born in June!

  28. Okay - you are more and more a girl after my own heart. Words cannot describe how much I love Christmas decorations. This might make me sound like a freak, but I believe I was a senior in high school when I started purchasing my own. By my jr year of college, our apartment was a Christmas explosion. I literally have tubs of Christmas decor. But I LOVE IT. It is truely the most wonderful time of the year for me. It's never too early or too late, especially if it's on sale. I always buy things after Christmas and then when I pull the decorations out the next year I'm all like oh wow! I forgot about this! We just ordered Christmas music at church for the choir so my boss has been sampling the music and I keep saying "I love Christmas music".

    Okay. wow. this is like 5 pages long. Oh, I saw the red box like this weekend and I thought, i really need to try that.

    See ya!

  32. Oh yes...the Red Box is AMAZING!! And so convenient, rent a movie after you get your groceries! Love it! I'm wanting to see 17 Again!

    And I love Christmas and all that goes with it so that is very very exciting to me!! Although it is still a wee bit early! Let's at least get through Halloween!

  33. Girl, we love Redbox!! So glad you discovered and love it! And, my word that Christmas trees are already out. Way.too.early!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hi!
    Awesome Blog. Love, love, LOVE the wedding pics!

    Redbox is the best invention ever! All hail the mighty Red!

    How are trees even out this early? I have a neighbor who gets her decorations shipped in from Aussie, she hasn't called me over to browse catalogs yet. A sign that it's way wayy too early.

  35. Not sure if anyone else already said this but if you sign up at redbox.com you can get a text message the first Monday of the month with a code to use for a free one!
    We love redbox and even have 17 again waiting in one right now for us! Please tell me what made you try coffee. My husband hates it as well but I LOVE it.
    We were at the mall today and saw the Christmas store is already fully stocked. We just laughed and kept going.

  36. I was in HobLob on Saturday and was totally drooling over the Christmas stuff!! I really wanted to buy another nativity scene. Maybe in a few weeks :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. we just starting using red box recently too! we've been completely striking out w movies though=)! Christmas decs already?? =) I can't think that far ahead yet!

    ReplyDelete
  38. We must not have Red Box in the South. I've never seen one or heard about it except on blogs.. Cool concept though.

    So this weekend while trying to convince my hubs that we needed to see 17 again, I totally used your tweet about how your hubs didn't think it was "so bad, as far as chick flicks go"! I told him that a friend's husband that totally wasn't into chick flicks actually sorta liked it! Thanks for letting me use ya'll!! It got the movie on my net flix queue!

  39. I used redbox for a few years and still will use them in a pinch but I love my Netflix. Huge selection. No late fees. And I just have to drop my movie in the mailbox and another magically appears! Oh and it's super cheap. Even cheaper than redbox if you watch more than a few movies a month or have difficulty returning the redbox ones on time (like me.)

    ReplyDelete
  40. That was so very sweet of Luke. And now I really want some chocolate chip waffles!

    ReplyDelete
  41. i could maybe understand the christmas decor if it wasn't 104 degrees outside.

    I'm SOOO ready for fall!

    ReplyDelete
  42. i couldn't believe all of the christmas decor at hobby lobby either! i was there a couple of weeks ago, and they were already putting ornaments out. the trees weren't up yet. waaaay too early for me ... but i'm like you, i love christmas decorations!
