Enchanted

So, the other day Jaysen comes up to me and says, "Why don't you and Holly go out to a movie on Monday night and then Zach and I can stay here and watch the kids while we watch the BCS game?" Did he think I was going to say no? Holly and I had talked about wanting to see the move 'Enchanted' a couple of weeks ago, so it was perfect!
It's been movie mania around here lately. I usually get to a movie once every few months, but for some reason, I've made it to three this last month. I'm not complaining. So, Holly and I went to see 'Enchanted' without children! It was great! Such a cute, funny movie. We were laughing through most of it. The girl that played the main character, Gisele, was so good. And then the breaking out into song in the middle of central park. Good stuff. We were giggling through most of the movie. I did like the point of the movie (at least the point that I got out of it). That life is not like a fairy tale. Bad stuff happens, but that shouldn't leave you so jaded that you close yourself off to real opportunities for "magical" things to happen in your life.

So, thanks Jaysen and Zach for being such good sports...not that they minded having to watch the game together....though in the middle of the game one of the bulbs in our big screen popped and the picture went wacko....so we had to bring out the smaller one from our bedroom for them to watch the game on. Sigh. Now Jaysen's all pumped about having to get a new TV. He says this is a great excuse to have to go and get a BIG flat screen. Do you think he sabotaged the tv so he could get a new one? This is the third time in two years that the bulbs have gone out on our tv, so it IS truly pointless for us to keep forking out serious dinero to fix it knowing it will break again in about 6-8 months. BUT! Seriously...oh well. Boys and their toys.

Oh, my hubby is the EXACT same way. He used the BYU football season as an excuse for buying an embarrassingly large t.v. - for what, like eight games? Ugh.

Oh well, does make McDreamy look extra nice up on the wall so big anhd luscious. Wasn't that movie so great? LOVED it.
