Alamo Drafthouse Cinema

This weekend has been the most amazing one this whole semester.

I got to spend it with some amazing people.

I’ve already covered Friday night but I found a picture in my phone so you’ll just have to suck it up and hear it again!

Friday:

2011-11-18 20.20.27

After working hard on a partnership packet, a group of us went and ate at Cheddar’s. Gary, Ryan, Patricia, Katrina, Andy, Preston, and I all squeezed into a booth. Drinking was in order. Ryan and Patricia ordered margaritas while I chose the oh so wonderful Fat Tire. The others were underage.

Our waiter was DUMB. He didn’t know what a Fat Tire was and when we said separate checks, he said huh? Really now?

Saturday:

Jenny, Tammy, and I went to the mall. Tammy needed to buy a birthday present for my brother so we shopped around. Then afterward we shopped around for ourselves. Winking smile

I got cute little fingerless mittens that can change to where my fingers are covered at Forever21 for $6.

I even got a nice looking jacket at Macy’s for $25! What a deal!! It’s a nice jacket that I can wear with my nice clothes. Much needed since I own a lot of hoodies.

I had gotten a text from my high school friend, Nicole, that she and her boyfriend were going to be in town. So we planned to get dinner with Stephanie (another high school friend who has been interning here in San Antonio).

We went to Taqueria Data Point. Obviously I chose it and since we were in San Antonio, I can only take them to the best Mexican food in town!

We talked and chilled. It was great. That was the first time I’ve met her boyfriend, and he was amazing!! He could definitely hold a conversation.

The only thing missing was Michelle. She’s coming home from New York this upcoming Sunday!! Finally, we’ll be in the same state again!

Jenny and Tammy wanted to watch Breaking Dawn so we had agreed to meet back at the apartments at 9pm. Then we headed to:

Our tickets. We are nerds. And we sat all the way at the top … that’s the view I saw. That’s not really the movie on the screen. Before they movie, they played all the spoofs. It’s hilarious!

2011-11-19 22.17.38

There was a lot of things on the menu. Definitely not your usual candies, sodas, popcorn, and nachos at the regular movie theaters.

After you figure out what you want, you write it down and stick it on the metal rail in front of you so it looks like a “flag”.

2011-11-19 22.37.21

Toasted Orzo [olive oil toasted Orzo pasta tossed in red vinegar, parsley, sun dried tomatoes, artichokes, and green onions] | $2.99

This was actually A LOT of food. The dude said it came In a small bowl. I beg to differ. I ate some and gave the rest to Jenny.

This was dang delicious and for such a low price. (It was a side.) The only thing I’m confused with is, it says it’s pasta … but I got rice. Unless Orzo means rice. Oh and the dish is cold. Like a salad!

I would order this again when I go because it’s cheap and delicious.

2011-11-19 22.37.48

Guinness Milkshake [Guinness and vanilla ice cream] | $5.00

OMG … I love it. I wished they would of told me that it had whipped cream because I would of told them NO THANKS! It was very delicious though. I would love to go and just order this. So delectable. So smooth.

2011-11-19 22.49.15

“Royale With Cheese” Burger [100% hormone and antibiotic free Angus patty with lettuce, tomato, onions, Cheddar cheese, bacon and chipotle mayo on a toasted sweet bun] | $9.99

The burger was very juicy. Cooked perfectly. The fries had a special type of seasoning so my ketchup as very unnecessary. The fries were a bit on the hard side. Not crunchy … hard. Yep.

I don’t think I would order the burger again though. It was good but not GREAT.

The theater itself … there are little lights underneath the long table where you sit. Luckily the ones under Jenny and I were out so it wasn’t super bright. The people came at the WORST times possible. But it was still a great experience.

The movie itself … was great! I’m not a die-hard Twilight fan but I love when people will do anything to protect those they love. Go watch it. It’s not terrible!

Sunday:

It was suppose to be study day but Jenny, Tammy, and I were lazy and were on Pinterest laughing away. When they went to H-E-B, I started my laundry, showered, and printed out all my slides. Productive?

A bee flew into our humble abode. Sad smile They were scared. I wasn’t scared … as long as it wasn’t close to me. He was pretty dumb. He kept flying into the window and couldn’t get out. Took him about a good hour. I tried to help but you could hear he was getting angry.

After dinner, we watched Water For Elephants.

 

Such a good movie. Robert Pattinson isn’t as terrible as everyone thinks. I find him attractive. Winking smile

This weekend was filled with fun and I cannot wait for this upcoming Thanksgiving break. I get to see my whole family as well as Tammy and Jenny’s family. It’s going to be amazing!!

De Lorenzo Is Calling My Name

Last night, I ventured out to find a dress to wear to my friends’ engagement party. After, much looking around, I found one. It was from Macy’s for $17.99, I believe.

Te gusta?

Sadly, it won’t be worn Sunday.

I got a call from De Lorenzo Friday night, to confirm our hair appointment Saturday for their show Sunday and Monday.

Since I have school Monday, I can only do Sunday and well … yeah, it clashes with the engagement party as well as football practice.

Sadly, I already knew about the show earlier than the engagement party so, I have to go with what I committed to first, right?

Once in a lifetime, right? Plus, I can cross off getting my hair did professionally and getting my make up did professionally off my list.

This is what the show is called.

Today was prep day, not the real show. It was a Tammy, Jenny, and me type bonding moment. We got there at around 10:45am. Matt found us and took us to the Model Check-In.

IMG_5168

I felt like a rockstar. I will never be a model model. Have you seen my body? So, I felt very happy.

IMG_5176IMG_5171

They gave us checkerboard wristbands and made us fill in the consent form. Check and Check.

IMG_5174IMG_5175

Since they were busy with coloring the other girls’ hair, they told us to hang around and be back by a certain time. We walked across the street to the Riverwalk and ate at the Food Court. It is the devil over there. Reminds me why I never eat at Food Courts if I have the choice. So fatty, so bad for you foods.

We headed into Macy’s too since we had time to spare and we wanted to know if we can find anymore amazing dresses like the one up top. I bought this blue tee for $4.99!

IMG_5260

Then it was time to head back, and head back we did. Then we waited for a little while for our turn.

IMG_5177IMG_5179

I was the first to go into the chair. I have “virgin hair” as they call it. So I was hell-a scared.

Reping that De Lorenzo swag (Why do people say swag? Just now tried it and uh .. it’s awkward.)

That’s Molly in the back. She was the one that found us.Open-mouthed smile

IMG_5222IMG_5232

They did highlights for Tammy (Left) and Jenny (Right).

IMG_5199IMG_5200

They even fed us since we were there for so long. Us three just got a jumbo hot dog each. That would be Matt putting the food together in the picture on the left; on the right is our hot dogs and condiments. Yum!

IMG_5247

They even have those chairs at the salons to wash out your hair and that’s where we all went to get that done. That would be Tammy getting her hair washed and conditioned and what not. The one doing so is Douglas. He is hilarious. His little comments make me laugh. I was sad for him though because one of the girl models ate his food (who didn’t order any) and he got none. That sucks major boo boo!

Our After Pictures

I don’t see any difference with my hair but it could be because they know I was scared that I’ve never dyed my hair before so they went super easy on it. Maybe tomorrow they can make it more bam bam bam!

We’re told they aren’t done yet, so we shall see what else they have in store for us tomorrow before the show!

IMG_5213

This picture does not do this girl justice but her hair was gorgeous! The one that did it for her, his name is Marvin. He is so funny. Always so excited and happy! Love it!

IMG_5268

The goodie bag they gave us for being their models! The bag’s material is amazing. I love it. They gave us shampoo, conditioner, and treatment for colored hair.

Their products are amazing. My hair feels amazing. They don’t test on animals and it’s organic! If I was rich, I would buy everything they have because my gosh … I love it!

See how big this place is? Picture it 500 times this size. That’s how big this show is going to be. AND they have rooms turned into classrooms outside of this room for people to learn more! It’s all so dang interesting!

Now I can cross off getting my hair professionally done off my bucket list!

Can’t wait to see what tomorrow has in store for us!
