You’ll be happy to know there has been no more crying since Thursday’s movie viewing. I have seen three other movies since then and managed to keep my composure. Friday night was Valentines Day, and I really liked it. I was told it was a lot like Love Actually and it actually was. Haha! 🙂 With such and all-star cast it was bound to be decent and I was definitely entertained.
Yesterday was a bit of a whirlwind for a Saturday, but two movies made the list. First thing was a good run, then the farmer’s market , an hour of hot yoga , and a speedy shower and lunch of leftover Confetti Salad with a container of Fage eaten on the way to the theater. I met Kelly for Sex and the City 2 and loved it! If you have never seen an episode of the tv show, I’m not sure a random viewing of this movie would be satisfying. It was a bit over the top. However, being a rabid fan (my favorite tv show EVER to date) I was happy to see my favorite on-screen girls again. If you know the characters, it all works.
I came home post Sex (um…sounds a bit scandalous) and a few final errands to create a wonderful dinner from my farmer’s market finds. Roasted veggies were the star with some rotisserie turkey breast as my protein. I chopped a few of the little carrots, one of the white eggplants, half a sweet potato, an some onion, tossed them with olive oil, a clove of minced garlic, and some salt and pepper before popping them in the oven at 375 for about half an hour. I also had raw broccoli and baked pita chips (made from and Alternative pita and crisped in the oven with the veggies) with roasted red pepper hummus. After all my morning exercising, a quick lunch, and minus my afternoon snack, I was starving! Dinner was a hodge podge and I loved every bite.
After dinner was in-home movie #3 for the weekend not counting, of course, the afternoon film at the cinema. 500 Days of Summer was the final chick flick before the hubby returns. I LOVED it! I think it’s my fave of the weekend. I really liked the guy in it, though I have to admit I was skeptical going in. I mean, he was in 3rd Rock from the Sun after all and that may be one of the worst tv shows in history. Clearly I was not a fan of his previous work, but he was great in this movie. Redemption! I’m sure he’ll be happy to hear of my approval 🙂 I also liked that I have one of the shirts Zoe Deschanel wore in the movie and its from OLD NAVY! Love low budget!
Today started with a little hot yoga and now I’m off to paint the trim in our kitchen. Our doors and cabinets are all a pretty creamy off-white since we painted them first thing when we moved in along with most of our walls. The trim somehow was missed, though, and it looks way more yellowy up against the doors and cabinets. It is one of those small things nobody else would probably notice but it drives me CRAZY! Since I have an extra day this weekend, I figured now was as good a time as any to get it done before it drives me too batty. Apparently sitting around is not something I do well and I’ve had enough relaxation for a while.
The best part of today? No work tomorrow. Three day weekends are the BOMB!
