2 Movie Reviews

In the past 2 weeks I have gone to the theater to see 2 different movies. One with the kids and one with the hubby. So here are my reviews:

"Horton Hears A Who": Excellent movie. Jim Carey is hilarious, and you gotta love it when the little Who's in Whoville get smacked in the balls. We loved the movie. Great comedy, great animation & you gotta love Dr. Suess. We giggled our little heads off. Favorite lines from the movie "The little ponies on my speck eat rainbows and poop out butterflies" and "I vill devour them, (cough, gag), and regurgitate them, then devour them again. Two times I will devour them". The movie has lots of edge of your seat action. It kept us glued to the screen and laughing the whole time. We can't wait to own it on DVD!

The hubby and I also went to see the movie 10,000 BC. Great story, great cinematography. It was a bit idealistic. But let me just say Cavemen are HOT!

Mommy's Day Out

On Saturday I had the luxury of escaping the confines of my house to venture to the outside world where normal humans tread. No cavemen came with. They stayed home and bonded in their caveman ways. Scratching their butts, fondling the remote, watching sports & cartoons, and enjoying some sunshine & warm weather.

I took my secret mom stash cash and left the house. I was gone for a total of 11 hours. With only a couple hours into my blissful ventures, I got text messages from the hubby. Little ones. He asked me what kind of NASCAR t-shirt he should have a friend buy for him. Carl Edwards, yep, good pick dear. Then since I was meeting my NASCAR motor head friend for lunch, the hubby texts me & asks what other driver's did we like because we could get a couple more t-shirts. So I told him, Matt Kenseth & Kevin Harvick are good. So fine he gets his buddy to pick up those. Now, I did wonder why my hubby needed 3 NASCAR t-shirts, but I let it go and wondered why he was bothering me on my mommy's day out. Keep in mind he did not ask for sizes. So naturally one would assume, he needed 3 NASCAR t-shirts.

I shopped til I dropped. I bought things I really don't need, but hey they looked good, and sure I needed it. It would look good somewhere. I met my friend for lunch and we had a great lunch at a tropical themed restaurant. Our waiter flirted with us, and we had a couple of drinks. My friend exclaimed "Let's have more drinks & my boyfriend will bring us home". Oh no, this was not a 10 hour lunch date. I had warned her before this was just a quickie. A 2 hour quickie that is. So we paid our tab and hit a couple stores in the mall. Then we parted ways. She went home to take a nap, and I continued on to more girly gift shops.

Spent more money than I needed, and wow, it did disappear fast. Every time I opened my wallet, I was sure some little money gremlin snuck by me and took out an extra $20 for sure.

Well, shopping, a 2 hour lunch with a friend, and sunshine sure is good therapy. It was a relaxing & rejuvenating retreat for this mom. I got home, carried my bags in, and was welcomed back to the cave den. The Cavemen missed me, and I got lots of caveman hugs upon my return. Then they wondered what kinds of things if any I brought home for them. Um...none my dears, none. Nadda, nope, all for me. Don't worry honey, I didn't rack up the credit card or deplete our bank account. I won this money in the mommy lottery, and I'm not sharing. :)

Girl Scout Cookies

You all know them. They are our family members, our friend's kids, our co-worker's kids, and our neighbor's kids. Girl Scouts. Those adorable smiling faces that ask you to buy cookies from them. Behind the smiling face is evilness!! Selling boxes upon boxes of heaven in a box. Oh those yummy, super delicious morsels of pure sweet goodness. Loaded with calories, fat, and sugar. Oh sweet heavenly cookies!!

Today for lunch I ate a whole box of Tag-a-longs. The chocolate covered peanut butter cookies. There are about 15 bite sized cookies in a box. Yep, I devoured the whole box. All to myself. Extreme mouthful bliss. Taste bud tantalizing goodness. Oh yeah.

Three hours later, I had a head ache, a gut ache, and the nods. Sugar crash time. I'm guessing it didn't help my case that, that was my only meal for the day at that point. Not such a great idea hind site. Was it worth it? Oh hell, yeah....

This is my niece. I believe she is a future Girl Scout Cookie High Seller. I'm sure of it.
