Two Thumbs Up

Tuesday Jamie and I went to see TMNT. If you don't know, it stands for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I had been very excited about this one coming out, I love the Ninja Turtles. I can't explain why, but I really love them. I used to watch the movie TMNT 2: Secret of the Ooze at least once a week in college, and then sometimes switch it up with TMNT 1 occasionally.

The movie had a good balance of nostalgic qualities, comedy and action. The computer graphics in this movie was incredible, especially the turtles themselves which looked life like. The movie theater we went to was full and everyone cheered when they introduced a turtle which was fun. Tickets were only $4 because it was Tues. which worked out great for us and is probably why it was so packed.
I'd give you an overview of the movie but either:
  1. you love TMNT too and already know the plot or
  2. you don't really care so why bother trying to explain why fighting ninja turtles are so freaking cool.
It was great to get out of the house finally. We've been staying in most nights lately and it was fun to break it up now that it's staying light out later. There seems to be some good movies coming out soon. I'm looking forward to Meet the Robinsons, the commercial for it honestly makes me laugh so hard every time I see it. This one is in Disney Digital 3-D so I'm going to try and see it at Jordan's Furniture in Reading when we go up to visit. This is going to be another good one!


Spring, is that you?

So it’s finally starting to look like Spring out there! This weekend Jamie and I were able to get outside and enjoy the sun and warm weather on Saturday. Well I enjoyed the sun, Jamie did a lot of work around the yard. Getting things cleaned up and thrown away, he was busy most of the day. Greg came over to visit and he helped out as well. Later the two of them went out and played golf at Montaup.

When they got back I made up a pizza and we all watched March Madness. I still don’t understand why college basketball has 2 half when all other basketball has 4 quarters, but maybe that’s just me. Sat. was a great day, it was so nice to sit outside in the sun and watch the birds and the water.

Sunday afternoon my mom came over to visit. We ended up cooking up some great lasagna for dinner. We also made up a turkey pie for later in the week. Both smelled terrific cooking and got us all hungry. It was great to have her over and be able to hang out with just her for most of the day. We are still attempting to figure out what I’m going to do with the curtains in the living room, for some reason this is one of the toughest things to solve. So after a few hours put into it I ended up with exactly what I had started with.

It really felt like Spring had started this weekend and it felt terrific. For the last couple of weeks I feel like I’ve done nothing and just have been tired and lazy. So that is my excuse for not posting anything since March 6th, I just have nothing to interesting to say. The dreary cold weather seemed like it would never end and work hasn’t been exciting at all either. So I ended up just kind of going through each day it seemed without much to show to it. March can be tough like that though, seems like I feel this same way every year.

At any rate though, I feel the wind is back in my sails. April is almost here and we are that much closer to enjoying the outdoors again. I can’t wait to go swimming and get some gardening done. I hope you made it through March ok, this is that last week of it!


The Weekend

This weekend Jamie and I went up to Rich's Grandmother's house to visit everyone. We got to meet Evan, Rich and Colleen's new arrival. He is adorable!

Suzanne was there as well with Devon, and Mikey brought Nolan. Johnny and Erin were there with Brendan so it was a huge baby party! The baby's were all mostly sleeping the whole time but us grown up's enjoyed passing them around and seeing them. At one point I was holding Nolan and Evan at the same time, this caused the paparazzi to come out of the wood work and there were flashes everywhere!

It was a great time and it was wonderful to see everyone and have all the little babies together. They are all so cute and adorable! Also, Johnny and Erin announced that they are pregnant again!! Due in October, so another little one is on the way as well!!
