After spending all afternoon with my parents (doctor's appointment, lunch, grocery store, Target, the bank, etc), I went with one of my girlfriends to see a great chick flick... Dear John! It was sooooooo good and believe me ladies, Channing Tatum is sure easy on the eyes. He is so handsome! Amanda Seyfried is pretty too and has the most beautiful hair. Throw in the fact that the movie takes place in Charleston and I am a happy gal. I love Charleston!!!
For those of you who aren't familiar with Nicholas Sparks, he is from my home state, North Carolina. He is the author of another favorite movie of mine, The Notebook. I really enjoy his books and I have read quite a few sitting out on the beach in the summer. Great summer reading for the ladies.
There was not an empty seat in the theater today, so I guess everyone was as eager to see the movie on opening day as I was. The movie review I read online gave the movie a "C", but I really liked it. It was just a wonderful, feel-good, love story.... with a few twists and turns along the way. I don't want to spoil the movie for you. Please go and see it for yourself. You will enjoy it. It was a great way for me to end my day after being in and out of the rain all day. Oh, I forgot to say, we awoke to about 2 to 3 inches of snow, but the snow quickly turned to rain and it has poured all day.
I am planning to hibernate in again this Saturday and get lots done here at home. I had fun baking this morning before going out with my parents and I made a chocolate cake and banana bread. Great comfort food for the weekend!! For those of you who don't know me very well, I LOVE sweets!!!
Here's hoping everyone has a wonderful weekend. I'm sure lots of you will be attending or having Super Bowl parties of your own. Have fun, whatever you do this weekend!!!
