Every Tuesday night (for nearly 4 years now!) a group of 10ish of us have gathered at our friends’, Whitney & Jonathan’s home for dinner. Usually we sit around and chat for a couple of hours and then we all head home. Well not this week! Mandy and I were talking about how much we loved Pitch Perfect 2 and the other girls were saying that they wanted to go see it. Mandy and I both said we’d be more than happy to go see it again. Then the drive-in got brought up. And we all thought that was such a great idea. And next thing I know I’m checking movie times. And it’s playing in 20 minutes at the drive-in. So we grabbed a bunch of blankets and pillows, left the boys with the kiddos and off we went!
Even though Christopher and I don’t have kids, a lot of our social life is lived as if we do. Since most of our friends have kiddos, we work around their schedules (naptimes, feedings, bedtimes, etc). Which means we are rarely out late with this group of friends. This was such a fun (and totally impromptu) night!
We sat all squished together and laughed all through the movie. Even though Mandy and I had seen it, we both still found it hilarious!
Also, I’m not sure how I have never blogged about the Summer Drive-In. It is a favorite of ours! $7.50/person and you get to see a double feature if you want to stay late enough for it (we ended up leaving after Pitch Perfect and not staying for the second movie because it was 10:45pm and way past all our bedtimes… so yes, we are old, haha!). They even let you bring your own snacks which I think is super great. 🙂
Have you been to a drive in movie?
Are you more of a planner or an impromptu fun sort of person? I am most definitely a planner by nature. I’ve learned a lot from Christopher about being more spontaneous which has been good for my soul. 🙂 So while the two of us have a good balance between planning & spontaneous/impromptu fun, we usually have more planned times with our friends (because of their kiddos’ schedules). So this was such a fun, unexpected, unplanned evening! 🙂
