Dinner was amazing, as always, and the drinks were amazing, as always. We had excellent conversation that didn't revolve around our daughters and it was just nice to have that break. So we were late about fifteen minutes for the movie--but I'm not sure that it would have made any difference. I'm pretty sure that there was no plot--or story--whatsoever. I mean, who goes to Magic Mike for a story, right?! So I can't say that I was disappointed. I hated Matthew McConaughey's character. But he sure looks good! Just wish I could have muted his mouth. Mr. Tatum, ummm, wow. I saw him in The Vow and didn't see the hype. I see it now! I sure do see it now!
I realize that nights like these are what girls night out are all about. Have dinner and seeing a movie--one that my husband doesn't particularly care to see. And being home at a decent hour, and sober. A year ago, I would have thought that coming in at 3 a.m. after a night of drinking was the ideal girls night out. Not so much, anymore. I feel so much more "grown up" these days.
This morning we hit a yard sale--the only one we could find, thanks to the heat--and scored big time on the 2T clothes for fall. She's wearing 12 month bottoms and 18/24 month shirts now, so I'm guessing that 2T will be about right for fall. This yard sale was very nice. Everything was ironed, nicely folded, labeled with sizes....my kind of sale. So I spent about $15 and got 5-6 shirts and one pair of jeans. She chose about 5 books too...and think we got a pretty good deal!
So, that's our Friday in a nutshell. How did you spend yours?
