Last weekend, Rachel came down to spend the weekend so that we could go see New Moon together. We drove up to Florence on Friday and had dinner with my parents at Cracker Barrel, then Rachel climbed in the car with us and we drove back to Chucktown. We spent Friday night watching/laughing at Twilight (and Saturday morning, as we were too tired to finish it on Friday after our road trip).
On Saturday morning, we hit up Wal-Mart in search of New Moon t-shirts. We didn't find any, however, we did find these super cool Madagascar Christmas stuffed animals. It turns out that Madagascar Christmas animals really enjoy riding around on the Roomba. Who knew?
After watching a few spoofs of New Moon on Youtube to get us in the mood, we went to the theater (Cy bought us tickets in advance, just in case they sold out). There was a pretty big line waiting to get into the theater, and we were afraid we were going to get trampled at first, but it turned out okay. The new Citadel Mall theater is really nice, and we enjoyed the movie--it was a lot better than Twilight (which we decided was because Robert Pattinson was hardly in it).
Saturday night we went to Joe Pasta and Cupcake (yum), then watched The Pink Panther 2 and caught up on some homework/noveling. Then Sunday morning it was church, and then back on the road to Florence and home again. Did I mention it was snowing in Charleston when we left? Weird. It was a quick, whirlwind weekend, but we had tons of fun!
