OMG...you should have seen us last night, we were definitely cute! It's been a long, long, long time since we've had a date worth writing anything about, but last night it finally happened. I have been on this free movie screening kick for over a month now and I can't see myself getting tired of it no time soon. Usually a girlfriend goes with me to the movies since the baby is so young, hubby stays home with him. However, neither of my very few girlfriends will go to a scary movie. I usually don't either but hey...it's FREE! Well I got passes for Shutter Island and thought it was a horror film (didn't take the time to read the poster), plus the previews make it seem like a horror film so I just assumed. Long story short, my husband said he'd go.
After he got off work he called me to see if I was ready to go and of course I wasn't...that's just my thing. Anyhoo, when he got home we both got all jazzed up. I even put on my Vicky Secret specials and he put lotion on his elbows...It was a BIG deal! After we were both looking and smelling good we intrusted our infant into the hands of our 18 year old son and stepped out on faith. I was glad we did, he did a great job.
It was magical, listening to Michael Jackson and my husband sing Pretty Young Thing on the way to the theatre. We even held hands at one point during the drive there. Since we were attending a screening, we had to stand in line for about an hour, but we talked and laughed the whole time.
The movie was awesome! Completely unexpected, I found myself drawn into the plot from the moment it began. I was constantly thinking about what was going on and why certain things were happening. In the end I was completely surprised and what I thought was going on wasn't, even though I had thought it at one point...the movie never lets on until the very end and I LOVE that. The movie come out on February 19, 2010 and I highly recommend seeing it. If you enjoyed The Book of Eli, you will absolutely love this movie.
Hubby and I shared popcorn and a soda, held hands during the movie and gave each other "the glance" all night. Afterwards, we drove home to more Michael Jackson but this time we were both singing and getting wild with it. It felt like a high school date that you don't want to end. As for my Vicky Specials, they took center stage after a few parenting chores...I never knew I could get a baby to sleep so fast:) I LOVE date nights!!!!
