guy sitting next to me

Or not... Brian is camping but I still love him. We had our 5th wedding anniversary on Thursday and celebrated eating subway, at McDonald's. Ahhhh true love! But not to worry, we have our annual anniv trip planned for April. We are going to Chicago and I am so excited!! I love to travel and do new things together!
I am the luckiest woman alive to have him in my life. He is amazing to me. Truly amazing! In every aspect of my life, he is my rock.
Loves hun.
(pic, very old. Just one of my favs of us!)

So Kathleens birthday bash. The girls, and Eric, went to dinner at cheesecake which is ALWAYS awesome.
Then off to the movie Remember Me. You know, the one with R-Pat. OK for those who aren't crazy freaks like us, Robert Pattinson. And Claire from Lost, whatever her name is.

R-pat, good role for you.

Movie, 4 thumbs down. Wait, how can you have 4 thumbs down? Because it was brutal. I thought it might be good because as we were heading in, the girls taking our tickets said "You'll love it! It was so good!" That should have set off the trigger that it wasn't going to be good right there. Just super Random, loose ends not tied up, sad unexpected ending, and overall really not worth 9.50$.

Man sitting next to me, EWWWW. Listening to him CHOMP his popcorn and ice through the whole thing, mixed with what I thought was his smell... I wanted to move and vomit many times. As the movie ends, I pick up my stuff and realize that indeed it was my left overs that stank through the whole movie and said man, probably thought it was me that smelt.

Well at least we love Kathleen... Happy Birthday!!

NOW, a funny story. Well it wasn't so funny at the time. Last week on a a long long walk boots lost his blanky. if you dont know, my kids are obsessed with their blankies. So I retraced my steps through someone elses neighbourhood to find it sitting waiting in the middle of a road that I didn't even know we went on. Lesson learned, dont let the kids have things on walks.

So a few days later we are at the Nature preserve where I love to be out walking, running etc. The path I took was about 3.25 miles and then I took a break for kids to park it. Noticing Natalie's "bambi" isn't in the stroller, I start questioning her about where she put it. A man over hears and tells me someone had it on the path just a little ways up. I am thinking 2 minutes away. I go for a half a mile and turn around, walk back with Nat crying and me trying to explain what happens when we lose toys. Another observer over hears, "Oh a stuffed reindeer? Yes! I saw it and put it up on the trash can at the back of the path!"

Back of the path? I then went off on another 2 miles to get the bambi. This makes a total of about 6 miles. This isn't a big deal to all of you in shape people but I am not one of those people,It was dinner time, I was tired, kids screaming, Ug... It was brutal! I hate when she brings her "babies" everywhere. That is gonna have to stop.

All I wanted was a drive through 7-11 to get a slurpee. Is that too much to ask?

I'm glad you found both the blanket and the toy. that's the worst losing those things, especially when they need them.
sounds like you got a good work out from it though ;)

Way to go Jeni! I once had to track down a lost binkie. That was brutal :)

When are you going to Chicago? Brian and I are going in April as well. Well Brian is for sure going and I might if I am able to get someone to watch the kids.

Jen, you seriously get stuck next to the WORST people at the movies. Remember those little kids at New Moon? And then at mom's thing last week you sat right in front of the irreverent singles ward chicks. It's like you have a tattoo on the back of your neck that says "ANNOY ME."
Next time we go to a movie, wherever you plan on sitting, I'll switch with you at the last minute and see if it helps:)

Jeni that sounds brutal! Hilarious with the food though...I thought Taylor smelled the other night as she was cuddled up next to me but really it ended up being my hair from when we went out to dinner that night! sick!

Hey just thought I'd tell you that after you left today, Molly said, "But Mom, I'm going to miss Natalie all day." Kinda cute.

Bummer the movie was four thumbs down. I might still have to rent it when it hits the Redbox though. I'll fold laundry while enjoying some eye candy. ;)

yay! congrats girl! you guys are perfect together. Sorry about the movie, haha. I went and saw New Moon by myself (which is a whole other story in itself) and the guy behind me had his bare feet on the back of my chair and then the kid next to me was sprawled out horizontally with his stinky shoes right next to me. It was nasty.
