Good Monday Morning! I hope your weekend treated you well!
I was able to catch up on some movies, and help Em make her "Special Person of the Week" poster for preschool {she is so excited}!

I had heard from a few people that the the movie Burlesque was pretty good and that I should watch it, so I did::
 It was alright. While Christina and Cher are not my favorites, it is undeniable that they both have a great set of pipes! However, I believe that Christina isn't the greatest actress...But since I have always wanted to go to a Burlesque lounge, I thought it couldn't hurt to check out the movie. There was a surprising amount of well known actors in it, too!

I was also able to watch Salt::
It was pretty much exactly what I thought it would be - a ridiculously unbelievable, stereotyped, Angelia Jolie movie. While she is beautiful, and a pretty good actress, she always plays the same roles. You would think she'd want to branch out a little? There was a pretty good twist at the end, though!

On a different note - since Em's first day of preschool back in September, she has been asking when she gets to be Special Person of the Week. Imagine my disappointment every week, when I had to explain to her that since our last name starts with a 'W', that she will be the last one...Well we found out last Thursday, that this is her week! She is THRILLED! We got to make a poster for her to show off, she gets to bring a show-and-tell item both school days, and she gets to wear a (paper) crown with her name on it! She is so excited, it is the cutest thing ever {he, he}!

I will also be receiving my camera sometime this week, so I have this feeling it will be a good week! I hope yours will be, too!

  1. I haven't seen either of those movies. I am NOT a fan of Angelina Jolie, that's for sure... so I'm not sure I will be watching Salt. We'll see. And you're right about her always playing the same roles - except for The Changling. Have you seen it? It's is horrifying. And as much as I don't like her, she does a great job in the movie. If you haven't seen it -Be forewarned, it is incredibly disturbing and hard to stomach.

  2. Oh my gosh! That's so cute that Em is person of the week! I love it.

    I felt the same way about Salt as you.

  3. I agree with Mandy. I liked the Changling, but it was frustrating. If you want to see Angie in a different role, you should rent it.

    I am not sure if I will see Burlesque. Maybe.

    I am glad you get to play with your new camera soon. That's exciting!

  4. I've been wanting to see Burlesque. I'll have to save it for when the Husband is out of town it sounds like.

    You should come to next meet-up! It was fun!

  5. Oh, I've been wanting to see Burlesque.
    Congrats on your new camera--very exciting!
