Movies and Books!!!!

While at work today, I watched Couples Retreat! Loved it! Brought it home and watched it again with my husband. Two of my favorite scenes:





I love Vince Vaughan....cute, cute movie.
If I can stay awake, next movie is:



I read the book and kept trying to figure it out/make it real....finally Solar told me "Mom it's fiction..just read it" lol after that I guess I stopped trying to make it real and went with the flow....lol Anyway, I've been waiting for this to come out on DVD and finally I have it!

Also purchased the sequel to Very Valentine by Adriana Trigiani, which came out this week....Brava, Valentine. I love her novels and have read most of them. She is one who captures my attention from the first page and her characters are real and endearing. If you haven't read any of her books, give them a try, think you'll be very entertained.











I also want to wish a Happy Birthday to my niece, Tool Woman. She is on a much deserved vacation in Colorado....Be careful....don't break anything....Hope you had a Happy Day!!!!

Have a good weekend all!

My son told me he cried watching Time Traveler's. He bought the book but I have not seen him read. I don't like sad stories. I can only take happy ending. Currently I'm reading The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown. It is okay, at least it keeps me reading.

I'll have to check out those two books you mentioned. Have a great week-end.

Couples Retreat was pretty dang funny. I liked those two scenes, too. Have you seen It's Complicated?? Pee-Your-Pants funny! We talked about watching The Time Traveler's Wife this weekend. Keep me posted! ;)

I need a good email address from the Arkansas Bloggers participants so that I can notify everyone easily. Also, please link up to follow so that you will receive pertinent messages. I promise not to bug you!

Message from Kathy about the Ark Bloggers logo and blog page. Please check it out and let us know what you think. You might want to pick up the new code for the logo. It looks much better than the other one.

Here’s the html code for the logo. I resized it to 220 pixels, and then uploaded it to PhotoBucket. That size seems to work. Letting PhotoBucket resize it seems to make the image less crisp, so this should work.


NBLOGGER WON'T LET ME PAST THE HTML CODE IN COMMENTS. YOU CAN PICK THAT UP FROM MY BLOG.


You might want to go look at the test blog to see what you think of the background I’ve been working on. If you like it, I’ll give you instructions for putting the header and the background on the blog.

Thanks for the Birthday shout out! We had a great time. The commander and I saw Couples Retreat at the theater and laughed out loud through the whole thing. I love V.V.!
