Fun week ahead

Michigan Theater

I’m so looking forward to a nice, long holiday weekend & enjoying spending time with friends over good food & fun activities; we’ve got a full week planned, but it will be lots of fun! We’re having friends over to share Thanksgiving dinner with us on Thursday & we’ll be serving many of the same items we made for last year’s meal – yum! On Friday, we plan on going to the Michigan Theater to see Warner Bros. Cartoons & we’ll be back at the Michigan Theater on Sunday for the White Christmas Sing-A-Long (we went to the Wizard of Oz Sing-A-Long several months ago & loved it). And we’ll be decorating the house for Christmas, making our own holiday pop up cards to send out, & probably doing some Christmas shopping as well.

And, I really like this wreath – wonder if I’ll be ambitious enough to make this for myself…perhaps!

Tuesday’s Gone with the Wind

We enjoyed another fabulous, classic movie at the Michigan Theater last night – Gone with the Wind. It really is a wonderful movie & it was so fun to see it on the big screen!

Also, I couldn’t help but think it was funny that we were watching Gone with the Wind on a Tuesday & Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Tuesday’s Gone kept playing in my head.

We’re off to see the Wizard

We had the best time attending the Sing-a-Long Wizard of Oz at the Michigan Theater this afternoon & I was sure to wear my red shoes, of course. They gave out gift bags with bubbles, kazoos, lollipops, etc. & the words were right there on the bottom of the screen so that everyone could join in…”We’re off to see the Wizard…”!

The Michigan Theater has a great summer classic film series that you should really check out – Ryan & I saw the Creature from the Black Lagoon in 3D there a couple summers ago & enjoyed that one too.

Elbow Room

What a fun weekend we had! Got to spend a lot of time with many wonderful friends, saw some live music (our friends Jim Roll & Danny Kline played) at the Elbow Room in Ypsi on Friday night, did some great shopping at all my favorite places (Pot & Box, Everyday Wines, Treasure Mart, Tea Haus, etc.), had a great breakfast at Beezy’s & saw the 2010 Graduate Degree Exhibition of Cranbrook Academy of Art at MOCAD in Detroit on Saturday, & saw Little Shop of Horrors at the Performance Network with friends on Sunday!

Enjoy the show

I grew up in Gatesville, TX (fun fact, Gatesville is known as the “Spur Capital of Texas”) & had the pleasure of having a functioning drive-in theater, The Last Drive-In Picture Show, (they also have an indoor theater attached) to enjoy & conveniently located very close to my home.

To this day, I love going to the movies & I especially appreciate the beauty of old theaters & drive-in movies. Now, living in Ann Arbor, I have the pleasure of having two lovely, old theaters right downtown – the Michigan Theater & the State Theater.

Going to the movies is always fun, but something about going to see a movie in an old theater or drive-in movie is extra special; they have a certain charm & character that modern theaters just don’t possess. So, I encourage you to seek out places like this, grab yourself a bucket of popcorn & a soda, & sit back & enjoy the show!
