Chick Flick Club. We've been on a bit of a hiatus, but I hope to revive it soon. This girl needs her chick flick nights!
I've been promising Natalie that we'd go to see Toy Story 3 in the movie theater when it came out. After being tortured by commercial trailers for ages, the movie finally came out a week or two ago and I had to make good on my promise.
I think I was even more excited about our little date than Natalie was. We left Michaela Byrd in the care of T, wisely leaving the house before she woke up from her nap and discovered we were missing. The temp outside was hovering around 101, making it the perfect day for a movie date.
I was pretty sure that 3D would give me a major headache, so we drove over to the fancy new theater that boasts a restaurant, bowling alley, and VIP lounge/bar because it was the only one in town playing the film in good old fashioned 2D.
Natalie asked me every 5.7 seconds if I would buy her some popcorn. I think she was more excited about the popcorn than the movie.
The movie itself was absolutely precious. Only Disney can make an adult feel sympathy for inanimate objects. They combined hilarious characters with bittersweet moments. I found myself crying at the end, but giving myself a headache from trying not to cry so Natalie wouldn't look over and exclaim, "Mommy, why is your face leaking?" in front of the whole theater.
Two. thumbs. up.
We ended our date by dining on 5 star cuisine at Chez McDonalds. Eeer...her choice.
As long as the other moms come too!
I'm doing a STRIVE class at the gym this morning, trying not to die, so I'll leave you today with a couple of fun clips with my two favorite characters from the movie: Barbie and Ken. (Ken really stole the show! The second clip isn't from the movie, but it's funny.)
