Movie Night


The last movie I saw was "27 Dresses." That was back in January. How sad. I have seen plenty of kid's movies since then, but those aren't "real" movies.

The other night I was able to get together with some really great friends that I hadn't seen in a long time and see a movie. I bought a tub of Dibbs, a large coffee and settled nicely in my seat. The other girls had popcorn, Milk Duds, Raisinettes, Sour Patch Kids, and Kissables, which were passed up and down the aisle throughout the movie. Delicious.

Two women brought blankets, and all of us were prepared with long pants and jackets or sweatshirts. Pure heaven.

Although the steep price of $11.00 per ticket (!) put a damper on my wallet, the movie and the company were worth every cent.

We saw, "The Secret Life of Bees." I knew nothing about the book or the movie so I went in with an open mind. All the girls promised that the book was fabulous so the movie should be great, it was.

I cried on three different occasions. The movie made me appreciate my family so much more than I already do.

Great acting. Great story. Great friends. Great candy. Hot coffee. Great times.

I need to get out more often.
