Rainy Weekends and Astoria Adventures

...and so the rain continues. Waking up today was a struggle as I was greeted with raindrop-ridden windows as I slowly forced my eyes open. Hello, more rain. Looks like we meet yet again.

Luckily for us, the rain took a long enough hiatus yesterday for Jeremy and I to wander outside for a walk and quick lunch in the neighborhood. We stopped by one of our favorite lunch spots in Astoria, The Bao Shoppe, which is where you go if you want to land in pork belly heaven. And pork belly heaven I did land.

Then we tried to wrap up our evening with a showing of Captain America: Civil War. The local movie theater is literally around the corner from our apartment so, like a pair of douches, we casually strolled up to the theater about 10 minutes before the start of our desired showing expecting to get tickets, no problem (especially considering there were almost 30 different showings yesterday since it's the opening weekend). We arrived to throngs and throngs of people already trying to get tickets for showings many hours later. We have underestimated you, Captain America. We are at your service. Perhaps another weekend we will meet.

  2. Love your outfit so much and your hair looks so cute. Bummer that you guys did not get to see Captain America, but hope you get to see it soon! It is so good. I actually tend to always pre-buy tickets online just to be sure I will get a good seat - In Germany the seats are pre-chosen when you purchase your ticket, so even if you are able to get a ticket 10 minutes before the movie, it might mean being in the front row on the very lefthand corner - no fun.

  4. Can not wait to see Captain America. I will usually wait past opening weekend to avoid the ticketing issue. Figure if I can wait for months, another week won't hurt, eh? Loving the braids. Tutorial please, Jen!
