Obsession: Cinema Under the Stars

Since moving, we've hungered for the old movie houses. The ones where you're greeted with a pipe organist, opening shorts sporting a marching hot dog reminding you to purchase a snack, an old-school candy selection, and, most importantly, a classic film. This year, we decided to stop reminiscing and start acting by hosting our own Cinema Under the Stars. After a quick e-mail invite and an afternoon making homemade carmel corn and a screen constructed out of a white sheet, we invited neighbors and schoolmates to join us at our pad for an outdoor movie. I can't think of a better way to spend time than sitting on a blanket under the stars, imbibing on fun snacks and drinks, and enjoying time with friends and the Marx Brothers.

About Mod City Mom

After becoming mothers, sisters Sarah Romine and Leah Weyandt wanted to marry the activities and interests that they experienced before motherhood with their new found lives with children. This was not always an easy task—traveling to obscure places, shopping at off-beat boutiques, and sipping lazy-afternoon cocktails doesn't always fit neatly with parenthood. Stemming from their frustration, they meticulously searched, and continue to search, for activities, establishments, and entertainment that they take pleasure in and their families benefit from. The result? Mod City Mom.

About Sarah

Sarah is a passionate cook, fashionista, writer, actor, and mother. Like all actors, she ended up working at many-a-restaurant to make ends meet and shopping at countless bargain boutiques to maintain her sense of personal style. Her culinary journey, love affair with fashion, and desire to remain true to herself after becoming a mother are the inspirations for this site. Sarah lives with her husband and two sons in Chicago.

About Leah

A polymath wannabe, Leah loves books, films, music, cooking, and travel. After co-starting a writing and editing shop in 2002, Leah has spent her spare time frequenting her favorite cities, hangouts, and haunts. Her obsession with finding the new, innovative, and quirky is the impetus behind this site. Leah lives with her two sons and husband in North San Diego County.
