How to sneak food into a movie theater

sneak header


Chris and I have this little game we play. We LOVE to see what different, random kinds of food that we can sneak into the movie theater. So far, we have snuck in:

  • A quart of ice cream
  • A container of frosting
  • Bottles of soda
  • A Chili’s Cheeseburger
  • Full fast food meals including drinks
  • Milkshakes
  • Your typical boxes of candy

So now for your movie watching enjoyment…a little tutorial on how to sneak food into a movie theater.

Step 1: Pick the appropriate purse to contain your food of choice.

Too big and obvious…I mean heck, it’s practically a suitcase.^^

sneak 2

Way too small. Unless you’re going for just a little candy, this is not the right choice.^^

Big enough to hide all sorts of food, sturdy enough for drinks or milkshakes to stand up as long as you don’t do any crazy dancing or trip, an average size of purse that many people carry so you don’t have to worry about anyone being suspicious.

**Tip** It’s really important to actually bring a purse. Chris and I once tried to sneak in several bags of candy, bottles of soda, a bag of chips and a container of frosting and I didn’t bring a purse. Now, granted we did make it into the theater without getting caught but I’m not exactly sure how we did. We looked very awkwardly bulky. Chris had bottles of soda in each back pocket, I was holding the frosting with my coat draped over my arms so you couldn’t see and we had candy and chips stuffed into pockets. It was awkward. I don’t recommend it.

College Study Printables!

I was talking to my favorite Aunt the other day and she was giving my the DL on my cute cousin who just started college. Of course she’s not that much younger than me, but those couple years between us (and the whole me being married thing) makes me feel like I should take her under my wing and give her some invaluable college study advice.

And I figured there are plenty of college students that are otherwise afflicted and are having a difficult time studying and keeping up with their grades, so those students could probably benefit from my invaluable college study advice too!

Then, I realized that no one wants to just a read a bunch of words with advice that they should follow. It’s all about the packaging. So I made these adorable college study printables.

Colorful Rustic Bathroom Decor

So being the poor married college student that I am and also having the desire to have a pretty house, I have been finding cute decorations that I like and making my own version of them so it doesn’t cost nearly as much money. Plus it has my own personal flair.

I started with our half bath. There’s so much woodwork in here that I thought it would be cute if I made it feel kind of woodsy, and rustic so I went with rustic bathroom decor. But I’m a colorful person, so of course everything was bright with my own colorful flair.

bathroom 1


I got lucky and found an amazing sale at Michael’s for paint (0.29 a pop) and the rest of my materials have been things I found or already owned (For the most part).

I’ve got this great handy man of a husband who likes to collect random pieces of wood. Plus my aunt has a very large wood pile in her back yard for fire wood so I had a lot to work with.

I found the pine cones in the back yard and I already had the vases. It took forever to paint the pine cones because I didn’t have enough paint to dip them so I did them all by hand with a paint brush. Luckily because they are all on top of each other in vases they didn’t have to be perfect so only one coat was necessary.

Morning and Night: Poetry

I don’t write poetry very often but sometimes something random will inspire me and I just can’t help myself. When I wrote these, it just happened to be an early morning storm and a starry night. They seemed to compliment each other nicely.

I woke up this morning to watch the trees dance

Each one moving to the bass in the sky.

I watched as they shook their leaves in excitement;

Some drooped their branches and appeared to cry.


With arms outstretched they swayed back and forth,

They reached out to the tree by their side

And in perfect time the trees switched direction

Each leaf along for the ride.
