Can you believe it, 2 girls night outs in one week! You can tell all my friends are back in town. Yeah! Rochelle gave all the details on our very adventurous Friday night.
We had an exciting evening in Dallas with dinner, a movie, a fire drill, and ice-cream. Yes, I said fire drill. With only about 20 minutes left in the film, Becoming Jane, the fire alarms went off and we had to exit the building. It was actually kind of a relief to me because I had to go potty really bad! Luckily they paused the movie and after a bathroom break we were able to go back in a finish the movie. Good thing too because I wasn’t going to drive an hour and pay $9 to see it again.
*Spoiler Alert* If you don’t know about Jane’s life and want to go to the movie surprised, skip the next paragraph.
I really enjoyed the movie. Don’t hate on me, but I’m not a Jane Austen fan. I’ve seen a lot of films based on her books recently because several of my friends are fanatics. It’s enjoyable but not my first pick on a film. I’ve got to say that I loved the ending in this movie. I felt that it wrapped it up nice and neat and gave me closure. I really wish that Jane had given the shy wealthy guy a chance. Seriously, I think he had a lot more character than she was willing to admit. Too bad she ended up alone and never married in real life. Bummer! I feel more for her sister. At least Jane had her romance novels to fill her cup. I wonder what her poor sister did? I would think that after having had love and losing it in the war that you would be able to find it again?
Lisa and I had some sister time in Canton on Saturday. This is all the stuff she got. I got the big iron on the left, but you can only see part of it. We’ll hang it today and I’ll take a picture. Jason gave me a $50 limit. Can you believe that?!? He’s never done that before and at first I was insulted. Then I remembered that next month is my birthday! I’ll make up for it then. (he he)
We went to Canton because Lisa moves into her house this weekend. Yeah! I’ll be driving down to help her unpack and decorate. Her house is amazing. This is not your average starter home – she has such great taste and it’s going to be eye popping. I can’t wait for this weekend.
