movies galore!

on the 15th i was at an event and they had sets of free tickets available for 2 different advance screenings...i grabbed up one for each...

first up was "the proposal" on june 18th -- i thought this movie was hilarious!! it is certainly a "chick flick" but i think the guys would like it as well...there were some touching moments and a lot of comedy...2 thumbs up from me!

then last night, june 25th, i got to see "public enemies" -- johnny depp is hot in pretty much everything, so that was a plus...this movie had a little love, but a lot of shoot outs and car chases...i think a lot of guys would love this movie, but, to me, it dragged a lot -- i mean, how often can you see someone get shot?? 1 thumb up, but maybe 2 for guys....

oh my!

since wednesday i have been BUSY!

wednesday night i got a call about babysitting -- could i make thursday night (nope!) but i could do friday night and during the day saturday (over night!)...

thursday was work and it went well (as it should!) and that night i got to go to the [free] advance showing of "the proposal"...that movie is AWESOME! i love going to movies when it isn't too full so you get your pick of seats, but i had forgotten how fun it is to go when the place is packed! everyone was laughing and clapped at the end...the movie had some really moving parts, and it was a great movie overall! i would highly recommend going to see it

friday was work, then quick packing, then was a nice night with all 4 of the kids...i also called my aunt in colorado once the kids were sleeping (by 10!)...

saturday was great babysitting, too -- the kids got up between 8 and 9...we did a couple projects and watched some movies (it was way too hot to be outside too long)...their gramma picked them up about 3:30 and i could go home! i took my dad to red robin for father's day for dinner -- our normal waitress (the awesome bartender melissa) doesn't work on saturdays, so it wasn't quite normal, but it was still good food and a fun time!

this morning (sunday) was church...then i came home and worked on some harry potter crafts for a swap i am in over at finished stitching one item and started painting on a few things...i need to finish the painted items, get some candy, bead somethings, and then see what else i need to complete...i may add some other fun things (does michaels carry carving tools??) dad & i also went out to my brother's place...then we headed to madison's for dinner -- always good food!!

this week is work, and cropping this weekend :) i am also going to be getting ready for COLORADO! i fly out a week from tomorrow and get back on the morning of the 4th!! i am very excited because i will get to spend some time with my aunt and my friend danielle...

so this is getting really long...i need to work on updating this blog a little more often, but sometimes i just wonder if anyone is reading or not....

this is one of my favorite blogs -- a nice balance of real life (and a tough one at that), british humor (and spelling), awesome photographs, and even more wonderful scrapbook ideas/cards/etc...

today's post - found here - has a tag i love (saved it!) with a wonderful quote about love...and, another awesome quote: For every minute you are angry, you lose sixty seconds of happiness. -- Author Unknown
