Dinner & a Movie

My daughter and I decided to have dinner and watch a movie on the big screen on Tuesday. 

Normally we reserve this night for board game night, but wanted to do something different yesterday. 

Our local UEC movie theater has bargain Tuesday where any movie can be seen for $5.00, and if you use your UEC loyalty card you can also get a free 46 ounce popcorn. 

We went to see the new Christopher Robin movie yesterday and also received two free popcorns even though we only have one loyalty card. 

Before we went to see the movie though we had dinner at Ruby Tuesday. 

They have a special going on right now where you can get a free Garden Bar Entree or Hamburger when you sign up for their So Connected program, which is free to join. 

Here is a photo of my salad:

Ruby Tuesday

The coupon is good from now until the end of the year. 

This was the first time this summer we've done something fun for ourselves. It was a cute movie, a good time, and pretty inexpensive as well.

  1. It sounds like you and your daughter had a really good time. I think we all should do things just for fun once in a while. 😊 And you did it without spending a lot. That's fantastic.

  2. Good Times!!! A Back-to-School celebration to share and remember does a heart good. Two hearts must be skipping after your day.

    When is your first day subbing? You wrote that you had one day lined up.

    1. Yes, we had a very good time and our hearts are full, Anna.

      My first day is Monday and possibly Tuesday as a student who graduated in May died this week. Her basketball coach asked me to sub for her, so she could attend the funeral.

  3. Nice mother/daughter time! Unfortunately, no Ruby Tuesday near my house.

  4. Aw, it's so nice to have that special time with our kids! :) That salad looks lovely!

  5. That is a perfect Summer day. I will have to check to see if our movie theaters do these great discounts. DH told me the other day it has been a long time since we have seen a movie at a theater. It really has. Last movie we went to see was Lord of the Rings- Return of the King. As you can see it's been awhile, lol. Thanks for the heads up about discounts.
