Christmas Eve at Church of the Motion Picture

Saturday night after the Hanukkah candles were lit and prayers said, YBW and I realized we wouldn’t make the early Christmas Eve service at Emmanuel.

And at roughly 45 minutes each way, we knew we wouldn’t want to attempt the 11:00 service. Sad face Robynbird. I do so love Christmas Eve services.

But then I got an idea! Kind of like the Grinch, only mine wasn’t an awful idea. Mine was a wonderful idea!
I turned to YBW at the foot of the stairs and I said, “Let’s go to ‘Church of the Motion Picture’!”

When he asked what movie we should see, I knew the answer straight away.

We busted out of the house to get to the shoe store before it closed at six. I decided at the last moment I wanted to wear these shoes to lunch on Christmas day.

They were 30% off and I’d earned a $10 certificate and I had a store credit from returning a pair of boots. So I got these adorable booties for less than $30 that was already spent! And I rocked them with the cutest dress for going out to lunch on Christmas Day!

We left DSW and headed to Fairfax Corner. We were almost an hour early for the movie so we decided to stop in at Coastal Flats for cocktails. The girl tending bar was called Michelle and she took great care of us. We chatted her up and laughed and generally had a great time.

I had a Lucky Lounge Lemonade and YBW had a mojito.

After the movie, we came home to open our Christmas Eve pressies. Then snuggled for a long time in front of the fire with a bottle of prosecco before we finally gave up waiting to see Santa and went to bed.
