Here's a hint.
Here's the shirt I may or may not have worn:
Which by the way, when I got home and showed my husband he just chuckled at me and then did the next normal thing, updated his status to say:
"My wife just got home with a Hunger Games t-shirt to wear to the premier tonight. It seems I have married a 12 year old trapped inside a sexy 28 year old's body!"
I told him it wasn't fair for him to talk about me on FB because I couldn't defend myself since I gave it up for Lent! ;)
And because in sure y'all want proof of my big night, here's the ticket stub:
Yes, I was that girl who was way excited about going to see The Hunger Games movie because I just loved the books!
I went last night with my brother and my SIL and it was quite awesome.
A funny thing that happened last night was that, since there was so much time between the movie starting (it was like 10:30 when we were seated), they were playing little games and doing trivia for prizes. Everyone was given a ticket simply for being there and so, me not being all aggressive and persistent in winning more tickets (umm-I mean those teeny boppers take this really seriously!;) ) I had just the one ticket.
After awhile I decide to go and get popcorn before the movie starts and grab my ticket, my brother and SIL's tickets also, to drop in the bucket.
**wow...sorry this story is so long...please don't judge my teeny bopper ways! ;)
Well, clever ol' me forgot to keep one of tickets so that I knew what my number was. Needless to say, when I got back to our seats I was a wee bit bummed but then told them that I really didn't have any real chances to win anyway because it was just one ticket. But then my brother and SIL so smartly reminded me that Prim only had her name in once for the reaping and her name was drawn.
** If you're lost, go read the books! They are AMAZING.
So, I decide to go and tell the girl what happened and she gave me not one but two more tickets.
I still thought nothing of it but low and behold, among the hundreds of people in the theatre, the last ticket drawn was mine!!
It was a framed movie poster.
I was excited to win, but was like, "umm...what the heck am I going to do with this?!"
I decided that later when I got home I would, jokingly hang it above my bed because I know it would make my dh think I was even crazier than he originally thought.
Instead, it was nearing 3 am and I couldn't find nails and had to be up at 6:50 to nanny, so I just put it on our mantle.
Here it is in all it's glory:
It's HUGE!! Lol!!! And quite tacky! It felt like a dorm room of sorts! My dh told me we would not be keeping that there and then laughed at me!!
Anyways, all in all it was a great night with family, I enjoyed the movie and was shocked to win anything because I never win anything...
Who knows, maybe my luck's turned around and good things are coming...just like my fortune cookie from last week told me:
Here's hoping that this fortune comes true, sooner than later, but that it wasn't about the poster...maybe about another gift we have been hoping and praying for for over 4 years now!
Hey, a girl can dream.
And this girl will always dream.
