Alright, so, we have been talking about doing a movie night for a while now. This post is where it starts!
Before we just picked a random date, time, movie, etc., we wanted to get your input. We honestly want you guys to join us for movie nights because what fun is a movie night with chocolate, fatty foods, and a tissue box if you have no one to share it with?
We love movie nights here and the best thing about this is that Lauren and I became friends through Twitter/Secret Sister. We live NO WHERE close to each other. While I live in Pennsylvania, Lauren lives in Mississippi. Let’s just say that it’s not a skip down the lane to spend time together watching movies. That’s why we’re starting this night. We want to give you all the ability to make new friends, talk with each other, and spend a night with your best girls without having to feel alone while doing so.
I’ve spent many a night watching movies by myself, alone at 3am, balling my eyes out for personal reasons and because the movie was just SO GOOD AND THEY WERE SO IN LOVE AND blah blah blahhhhh. I know I’m not the only one who doesn’t want to spend their movie nights alone. So… why not join us?
The deal is that we will announce a certain date, time, and movie in enough advance time to let you all get your copies of the movie, download it illegally (we won’t tell anyone), netflix it, redbox it, whatever you need to do. Once the time comes, we can all hop on twitter and use the hashtag #LLRGirlsNight to communicate with each other, fangirl over whomever, talk about the movie, and just have discussions while the movie is going and after! You can ask questions, talk to people, discuss the movie afterwards, use GIFs to describe your feels, whatever you want to do. This is to get all of us involved, talking, making friends, and not feeling like we are all so far from each other.
Honestly, I miss movie nights with my old best friends who used to come over, eat popcorn, stuff our faces with Ben & Jerry’s, and just talk and cry together. This is one of the ways I’ve managed to feel closer with phenomenal women like Lauren, Becca, Emily, Chelsea, and so many others. It’s for anyone and everyone to join, so please feel free to jump in at any time.
The first step is helping us gather some information. The three polls below are for you to fill out! We will try to make sure to pick a time or multiple times that work for everyone! Also, if you have any other movie suggestions, we’d really love to hear from you. Post movies you would love to have us watch in the comments and we will work hard to try and get it into our list!
Alright ladies (and gentlemen if there are any reading this!), get those answers in, let us know of any movies we should add to the list in the comments, and if you have any other comments, suggestions, etc., feel free to comment below or tweet Lauren and I!
Have a WONDERFUL 4th of July for those of you living in the U.S. and remember that Spectacularly Swanky Saturday was moved to tomorrow instead of Saturday in order to honor the U.S. holiday! If you’ve buddy read with someone recently, you should join us tomorrow in posting about it! Find more information here! =)
