What a beautiful day!

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary today by going out to the movies and a lunch (he took the day off work) while my aunt watched Joy for us.
Finances are a little tight these days, so this was a splurge for us. We planned on going to the first showing of the day of Hunger Games so we could get a special price for doing so. It ended up being $6 a ticket. My parents sent us a card in the mail yesterday with a $25 check in it and told us to see a movie on them and hold hands. So I guess the movie was on them, and we did obey and hold hands. I also get weekly emails from the local theater, and I took advantage of one to get a free small drink with the purchase of a popcorn. I paid to upgrade the drink and get a collector's edition Hunger Games cup, so we ended up paying $7.50 for the drink and popcorn.
After the movie ended we went to the Mongolian Grill at the mall and enjoyed a big, delicious lunch. I don't know how to really track my calories from that, but I like to think I made some good choices with my food there, and I only drank water. But I knew I should've stopped eating before I finished, as I was full. However, I saw a sign the restaurant had posted saying to please try not to waste food, and so I felt guilty and tried to finish off my plate. At least I was full enough not to really need a full meal for dinner!
And because I was feeling so full, as was my husband, I told him we were going to go for a walk. We picked Joy up from my aunt's and took her to the boardwalk of a local beach, where we walked approximately 1 mile while enjoying the scenery and some conversation.
I hope this nice weather sticks around through the weekend at least! There has been too much rain around here, keeping me inside much more than I'd like to be!
