Wow! So this is what it's like....
to see a movie with out kids?! This weekend went by so quickly! Friday was our son's schools yearly "Hoe Down" a fun family event with games and music and food. As we were all really tired, we only stayed long enough to hear the first graders sing "This Land Is Your Land" which was ADORABLE! All with hand motions and everything. That sort of thing just kills me! Then Saturday, Robert AND I were going to see "Sex And The City" together but Robert just wasn't feeling up to leaving the kid for that long and that far away. The closest theater showing was 30 minutes away (out of his comfort zone!) so I went with Joelle and her mom Cheryl. As they are great company and since it was the ultimate chick flick, it was just as well it was just the girls. It's funny, I LOVED the movie and had a great time, but I seriously could have done without the "sex" in the city. I have no problem with nudity and sex but I felt like it was a bit out of place for the tone of the movie. Or maybe a 20 foot buttock is just too much for me! I did love the use of love letters though. Very romantic.
Then Sunday we all went out for breakfast with Jen, Andrew, Noah and Alex. Let's face it, 4 kids under 7 is just not easy in a public place, even with DVD players and toys and books. We will have everyone over at our house next time where screaming, messy children do not garner looks of horror from even the most seasoned of wait staff. We tipped well.
Did you think I forgot about a giveaway? NOT! What is your favorite romantic movie. I have a soft spot for "A Room with a View" (Oh! That kiss!) There may be a treat if you don't trick! What's your fav romantic movie?!
