This Weekend Revisted


This weekend was an interesting weekend, to say the least. Friday was spent working and then family dinner and coffee, finally ending with a trip to the theaters to see The Hunger Games with my dad, little sister and boyfriend. (I'll include a review at the end, as not to spoil anything for y'all!)

Then Saturday was spent working an eight hour shift and spending time with my dad. Towards the end of the night I headed to Elliot's parent's restaurant to visit with his family...but I made it there and had a slight breakdown. Oh, hormones. Elliot took off work and made sure I got home safe and sound. Such a good boyfriend. 

Sunday! Possibly my most trying day. We had Spring Recruitment Workshop today. While I love spending time with my sorority sisters, and actually don't really mind recruitment it was just a loonnnggg day today. After Workshop, I had a committee meeting and then finally got to go home to start working on laundry and homework. 


If you do not want to read any possible spoilers, then do not continue reading!

Y'all can I tell you how much I loved this movie? Though, I would probably have been really confused if I hadn't read the books. 

I think they did a really good job (even though I hated the camera movement) with showing the gore, without actually showing it. I feel like they would have lost a LOT of their following if they had shown the gore and received an R-rating. 

Quite honestly, it's been a while since I've read the books. My memory was a little fuzzy trying to remember exact details but I think they did a really great job over all. 

I really enjoyed the scenes they added in with President Snow and the game makers. I thought that was actually pretty genius!

Any thoughts/comments/concerns? How was your weekend?

I linked up today with Alyx from Every Day is a New Adventure!

  1. Oohhhh, I forgot to mention how much I liked that they added those scenes with Snow and the gamemakers! There was just too much that i loved for one post! It's really ridiculous.. I think I could talk about the movie for days.
    But yes, I thought it was amazing!!
    Also - am I the only one that thought it was weird that Cato was taller than Thrash? Wasn't Thrash supposed to be HUGE?!?!
    That's all.
    Thanks for linking up!!
