BG is once again hunting this past weekend. Actually, the weekend after Thanksgiving is an extended hunt. I realized on Saturday that I had a Blockbuster gift card that I have had for about a year! I decided that the kids would love to go pick a couple new movies to watch, so off we went. While we were there, we had a little issue with SD taking something that we didn't pay for...but that is another story. Since my gift card was for $10, we were able to get 5 movies! The kids got 2 that were only 99 cents, a Hello Kitty Movie and a Curious George movie. We also got a Christmas movie, to kick off the season. I decided since BG was gone, I would rent some chic flicks, so I got Love Happens and Letters to Juliet.
After the kids had gone to bed, I curled up in my bed with my glass of wine and popped in Love Happens. I really like romantic comedies and it was the perfect scenario, wine, sappy movie and my electric blanket. Of course, it was sappy and it made me cry (this is something that has become more prevalent since having kids). I sat there thinking...the best thing about watching a movie like this without BG is that he can't make fun of me crying. I actually started boo-hooing, not just a couple of tears filling up in my eyes. I am glad that I could cry in peace without having to hide it from him :) Of course, it could have been the wine making it worse, either way, it is a cute movie!
