Date night re-cap...
Showered and primped while the baby napped, picked up the babysitter at 5, met my hubby at home...I was ready! I had shaved my legs, painted my nails (fingers and toes), fixed my hair and checked myself in the mirror like 100 times! Looking a little different than I did when I used to primp in 1993. While my body may have grown, so has my heart (by three kids) and I wouldn't trade a model's figure for that! EVER! So, we jumped in the car, waved goodbye and watched as the littlest one "raced" us as far as he could run. We were FREE!!! It doesn't happen often but when it does...I worry that I didn't kiss them enough, that I was too quick to shout, "NO!" when a toy flew into the toilet, that I could have smiled more or sang KUMBAYA while they brushed their teeth this morning. OK! That's taking it a little too far but do you ever feel that way? Like you wished the day away just because you were looking forward to a night out? We started our night at The Canal Street Pub. I had Tomato Dill Soup, we shared hummus and pita and we each got the Panini of the Day...turkey, basil, tomato and pesto. I think if the varnish on the table wasn't so sticky that our arms stuck to the table every time we leaned in to chat I would say it was a perfect dinner. I tried a new beer. Samuel Smith Nut Brown Ale - yummy! We left feeling like we would POP before we got to the car..no dessert but maybe we would grab some COLD STONE on the way home. Do you all have COLD STONE? Holy CROW, that stuff is like an O---sm in a cup! My favorite is Germanchokolatekake! We
unbuttoned our pants as soon as we got in the car left and headed to see what was playing at the closest theatre. Can you say, WILL SMITH! Now, I am not a fan of the blow-em-up-and-wipe-the-screen-with-their-lifeless-carcass kind of movies but if Mr. Smith's name rolls across the wide screen, I AM THERE! He is a native Philadelphian, ya know. He is from MY neck of the woods - step off Jada! (LOL! Just kidding! But he IS on my list!!)
So, HANCOCK was playing. My hubby says, "Are ya sure you don't wanna see a chick flick? Momma Mia is playing." Awwww, ain't he sweet. I looked at him over my glasses and said, "Hmmmm. Let me think about that. Will Smith. Women singing Abba." We chuckled and he bought us two tickets for HANCOCK!
The movie started with a machine gun shoot out on a freeway. Then a man, his wife (?) and their 3-year old came into our row and got comfortable. WHAT?! Now, please understand, I was SO not concerned about the noise this baby would make during the movie, no. My brain was already imagining her beating the #$%^& out of some nerd behind the bleachers outside her high school because she was exposed to so much violence at an early age. From that point on, it was a struggle for me to keep my mind on the movie and not want to reach over and cover her eyes or ask if I could take her out to the lobby to play. It was killing me that she was watching blood and guts!
Just look...and this is a preview acceptable for ALL audiences...
The movie ended up co-starring Charlize Theron so hubby had his eye-candy, too. One cancels out the other and it's all good. We are not the jealous type.
Raced home to relieve the babysitter and we are headed to bed. Action movies make me sleepy. I was thinking about how cool it would be to do an interview with Will Smith (hopefully he would be dressed in the same dirt-ball clothes he was in for the whole beginning of the movie) on being a Dad. I am going to work on that one. I would love to have him be a guest on my blog!
I would pee!
Thanks so much for all the Anniversary wishes! We had a GREAT day! We did the math and figured we could conceivably have three more 15ths. That would make us 83! Kinda cool! But I bet we'll be wrinkly!
