I am not a movie critic but…

June 23, 2009

This weekend turned into the dining out and movie time and I have to admit I missed this stuff!  Here is a list of events – I mean really who do I think I am?

Thursday night was random HH aka Happy Hour at Iron Cactus – nice to just hang out have nachos and a few beers with friends

Friday night dinner with Kat and Sarah at Chuy’s

Saturday a facial (yes it was fabulous) and doggie play date and laying in the sun….Then to Sherlock’s us 3 girls go! Then we head to Alamo for a late movie and what are we seeing <drum roll please> The Proposal with the yumm yumm Ryan Reynolds but I will state this….As hot as Ryan is nothing holds a candle to Mister S.  It was fabulous and I swear I have not laughed that hard in a real long time to the point I was covering my mouth with my jacket.  The best part was when Sandra Bullock was dancing and singing “To the windows, to the wall”  you must see this.  I actually cried I was laughing so hard…So my 2 cents YEP totally worth it.

Sunday Sunday funday – house stuff and throwing on the old swim suit to swim? nope to go pick weeds and get a tan.  See two for one, being productive or as Mister S says I just can’t sit.  Well he is right but I would rather be productive and get a tan and get rid of those weeds.  It was over 100 degrees and hot but when your moving and aiming the water hose on yourself its really not that bad – try it! Played Frisbee with Tyson and made lunch and settled into my couch and watched True Blood – another awesome show!

Monday ok this isn’t part of the weekend but part of my movie going activities. Kat got sneak peek passes to My Sister’s Keeper and invited Kristen and I and off we go!  We waited 1 hour in the Austin Texas Heat – blah but ohh it was worth it!  The movie was good, good enough to shed a tear but really most people did.  The only thing slightly weird is Taylor (who is a cutey) was with Kate and he seemed 18 and she was like 12! Parents let her stay out and they had sex – I was like ok I get she is sick but you let her do this at her AGE! If you let go of this one part the rest was pure love and family!  It tugged at my heart strings and I kinda wish I would have read this book first.  So yes 2 thumbs up but you can wait for DVD so you can cry in your own living room.

Side note: Previews for the “The Time Traveler’s Wife” looks amazing so I must run out and get the book first! Ohh a new book to read – I love it! I just want to re-read twilight but realize so many good books out there and if I can get my hands on them I will read them.

Well off to work now for reals…

Cocktails and Butterflies to you all!

    Get the Time Traveler’s Wife book. I don’t know how they can do a movie when the book has so much of his thoughts.

    I read the Time Travler’s Wife…it was good but long at times.

    I didn’t know a movie was coming out. – Can’t wait to see it!

      The book is on my list to get and read before July is over…Heck I teared up over the previews! Anyone that has read it said it was worth it! I love to read so any books like Wally Lamb, Nora Roberts, Twilight, Harry Potter or Danielle Steel you just let me know and I am on it!

      Every one should go read Straight Up and Dirty by Stephanie Klein as this was one of the best books I had read from a female perspective. She is also has this book in the works to become a TV show and her other book Moose might be a movie!

    Ok I have finished the book and Sarah you were right it was a little long at time. Here is the problem I am used to things running chronological and this book doesn’t so you have to let go of the preconceived notions and just READ it! I did love the book and the ending I cried but then again I am an emotional train wreck when it comes to love movies or books – it is just me!
    I recommend it and I can’t wait to see the movie

    Now I need a new good book to read – maybe a few I can save for the long flight to and from the UK in Sept?
