We were on our own again yesterday so we decided to go to the movies! Nick and I went to see Cinderella. I remember loving the animated movie as a little girl and was excited to see the live action version.
Before I get into the movie I have to tell you that it was a ghost town around here. No one at the movies, most of the stores in the mall closed, and no one and I mean no one on the roads. #UberConservativeWestMichigan
Ok, so back to the movies.
It was awesome! It was so neat to see it come to life. It was whimsical and romantic and the costumes and sets were out of this world! Lily James was the perfect Cinderella. It was such a great lesson in being kind, but also having the courage to stand up for yourself. I hope my nieces get out to see it.
Can we just talk about Cinderella's ball gown? Out of this world.
It was even more magnificent on screen. I found these two really fun articles on how it was made: Cinderella's Ball Gown - It's All About That Dress! from people.com and Cinderella Dress Maker Reveals How She Move Her Magic from dailymail.co.uk. Can I please have a dress like this and a ball at a palace to go to?! #EveryGirlsDream
I finished out the day with napping, reading, and watching the Miami Open final.
My man Andy Murray has been playing great this season, but hasn't been able to clinch any victories. I think if he works on his stamina he'll get even better this season!
I miss my family.
