Lots of Action

Since I am the worst blogger evahhh, I'm cramming 2 weekend posts into one. Yep..bear with me here. 

Last weekend, we volunteered at the Memphis Union Mission. Wow! What an organization. I was really blown away by what all they have going on in their facilities and all with absolutely no government funds. God is working in the lives of the homeless of Memphis. If you ever get a chance to go, jump at the opportunity!

Afterwards, we went to eat at Trolley Stop. Ohh my gosh. I forgot how awesome their pizza is!
Later that night, we went to watch This Is the End, and it was terrible!! It was extremely sacrilegious. I expected there to be some vulgar parts, but it was wayyy more than I expected. Do yourself a favor, and don't waste your money to watch this one.

We also ran in the Gibson Guitar 5k..and I use the term "run" very loosely. There was lots of walking involved. 

This is my "what was I thinking?" face.

And of course, after you work out that much, you must eat tons of BBQ to offset the calories you just burned, right?

Now to the actual most recent weekend...

Rodney is a huge movie lover (in case you hadn't picked up on that already), and Casablanca is one of his all time favorites. 
The Orpheum was playing the movie Friday night, so we went to dinner downtown and then to the movie. 
We ate at Paulette's and it was absolutely delicious! They had a little fly problem which was pretty annoying, but other than that, everything was perfection! We will definitely have to go back soon.

 Saturday, we went to dinner and a movie with sweet friends!

We saw The Bling Ring. It was okay, but I wish we had waited until it came out on Blu Ray. I wasn't that impressed.

After the movie, I finally put two and two together that Pretty Wild on E! was actually about some of the girls involved with the buglaries. This makes me laugh every time I watch it!

After dinner, we went to Jerry's Snow Cones. I have heard about it from almost everyone in Memphis but have never been. I always though everyone's pictures had whipped cream on top of the snow cone. No. I was very wrong, and I'm glad I was. This is soft serve ice cream throughout the snow cone. Be still my soul. It was the most amazing thing ever. I have been thinking about it all day, but they're closed on Sunday. Not that I would actually go....right? ha
Linking up with Meg, Sami & Leeann

We were supposed to go to Jerry's this weekend but didnt make it with the 2 kids. ; ( I love your outfit and congrats on the 5k. I volunteered at MUM last year and it was such a great experience. And I still haven't eaten at Trolley Stop but it's on our list. ; )

I CRACK UP every time I watch that scene from Pretty Wild. Hahahaha, hilarious! I heard the movie was a flop. :( But I still want to see it!

That pizza looks delicious! That's a bummer about This is the End. I was thinking of seeing it, but after hearing your opinion i'll wait till it's released on DVD if anything.
