Since Eli was born, Friday nights have become "date-nights-in" for me and Luke. We weren't big movie people before Eli, but now that we are stationed to our house on Friday nights because we have a sleeping baby in his crib, we have found that it is a fun thing to do together.
I make it sound like we were out partying having this crazy time before Eli came. I can assure you that is far from the truth. The craziest we ever got was the night we went through the Braum's drive through on a Friday night and Luke asked what I wanted and I randomly said "A cup of hot fudge" just to see if he would order it and he did and they gave it to us.
For $1.99. A CUP OF HOT FUDGE. For $1.99. That is the deal of a lifetime.
It was probably some teenage kid who had no idea what he was doing or WHY anybody would want hot fudge, and freaked out and hit the $1.99 button real quick. But it totally made my night.
I took about two bites and then threw it away. Who wants to eat a whole cup of hot fudge?
Back to our date-night-in:
Friday we watched the movie Something Borrowed.
I read this book last year on our cruise and I was looking forward to the movie SO MUCH. It came out right after I had Eli and sadly I never made it to the theater to check it out.
I was anxious to see it this weekend, so I begged Luke to let us rent it from the On Demand thing on the tv. He hates spending that much on a movie but made an exception on Friday night since it was our "date night" My Prince Charming.
I don't mind spending that much on a movie because when we order it through the TV it just goes through our bill so it's pretty much like it was free right?
I enjoyed the movie. There were some funny moments and it was your normal cutesy girly chick flick. But as I always am, I was disappointed with the transfer from the book to the movie.
Every single time I see a movie that has been adapted from a book I feel like the character development is lacking. I remember feeling this way with The Notebook and several others. But nonetheless it was a good movie and I watched it again before our reservation was up the next day. I had to get our full $4.99 worth! My man has taught me well.
Sunday I joined Weight Watchers. It is something I've debated doing for awhile and I decided to take the plunge. I've actually already achieved my pre-Eli weight, but my body still doesn't look the same. I know everybody told me it would happen but it's annoying when it really does happen.
So even though I'm back to pre-pregnancy weight, I would like to fit back into pre-pregnancy jeans and pants. I need a little help from the weight and the watchers.
So now my goal is to get back to my wedding weight. We will see.....
That was a whole metabolism lifetime ago. I sure miss that metabolism. She was good to me while she lasted. We even once enjoyed cups of nothing but hot fudge together.
Anyways (I always get off on tangents) all of that to say I know there are a lot of people around here who do Weight Watchers so I am going to host a linky thingy on Wednesday where we can share our favorite low point snacks, meals, or just tips for each other. I need some good lunch and dinner ideas. So if you are doing WW or you have done it in the past get your ideas ready for Wednesday.
I mean it, don't embarrass me! I'm always afraid to do those linky thingys! PROVE MY FEAR WRONG.
Hope everyone had a good weekend!
