beauty and the beast

{wearing my 3D glasses}

Cate and I went on a little date this afternoon.

A little 3D movie date.

I tried to not sing any of the songs out loud. If I'd wanted to, I could've sung almost every single word to every single song. I'm not even kidding.

Instead I hummed quietly and sang the words extra loudly in my head. Not nearly as much fun as singing along. I tried to respect the other movie goers though.

I loved the movie...even though I've seen it too many times to count.

I used to have the soundtrack on cassette. I wore that thing out.

I was thinking the movie first came out when I was a young teenager, maybe a freshman in high school. I did a little internet search just now. Supposedly it came out in November of 1991. I was a freshman in college! How is that possible? I think it must be wrong. No college freshman should watch Beauty and the Beast as many times as I did. What a weirdo.

Cate did great for the whole movie, unless you count the fact that we made 5 trips to the bathroom. FIVE! One of them was for me. One of them was for her and was a false alarm. The other three were very much warranted (seems like she's in the midst of some kind of lovely stomach bug).

My favorite part of the movie was the scene near the end where we first see Belle in the yellow gown. She and Beast meet at the top of the stairs. When they took each others hands Cate said,

"Oh! They're best friends!"

It was adorable. I wish I had it on tape so I could rewind and hear her say it again. So cute.

We had fun eating the bucket of popcorn that was bigger than both our heads combined. It helped that I spilled about a third of it on the floor the first time we got up to use the ladies' room.

Oh, well. It was a fun day with my favorite girl.

What a fun date! I'm the same way with The Little Mermaid. My kids always ask me to stop singing when that one is on.

Hope Cate is better soon.

Beauty and the Beast is my favorite Disney movie. In fact, it's the first movie I remember seeing in theaters. But I can make you feel old, or make myself feel really young by remembering that I was 5 when it came out :)

Now you're just being mean, Janell. :o(

You were wise to avoid the junior mints. That many trips to the bathroom would have FOR SURE resulted in you sitting on a few of them. Not that I'd know anything about that. Ahem.

P.S. I'm totally going to follow you on Pinterest. As soon as I catch up on my blogs and head over there...

I am sad that we didn't go see this. Is it still in the theaters?

I don't think I could resist singing REALLY loudly though. Maybe I better just stick to my DVD.
