Or even a guy in a furry green suit? B/c I AM SO IN LOVE WITH THIS. Makes me wish we had cable so I could sit watching Nick Jr. all day long.
So, last night – not surprisingly – we (more like me) watched another movie. Prime with Uma Thurman. I was surprised by how much I liked it – but then again, the story did revolve around a 37 year old woman linking up with a painter 14 years her junior. So.. yep really not much to interest my husband there. But we did have a good laugh about the whole age-difference thing. He is a year older than me – which works just perfectly 🙂 But if we got divorced and I decided to pull an Uma Thurman style coup, at 35 my new boyfriend would be 21!! Virile young stud. JOKING!!
ANYWAY, I am getting excited for the weekend, because contrary to my movie-watching habits we actually do have plans. Woohoo!
I came across this trailer months ago on youtube, and it’s stuck with me ever since. What an amazing story! If you’re equally impressed, go here to request the film in your area.
Yesterday I had the unbelievable luck of receiving two free tickets to see Regina Spektor. Being so last-minute I couldn’t get a babysitter, so I decided to take my older daughter to see the captivating Russian chanteuse. All I can say is wow. WOW. Regina is spectacular; her music virtually matchless, like a rare champagne popping in your ears. Her level of talent is awe inspiring, and yet she manages to come across as a very mischievous, insanely witty friend. Maddie really enjoyed the experience as well. We both liked the opening act, Only Son, and we had a fun time just hanging out sharing a bag of twizzlers (which taste surprisingly good with beer). A young woman stopped me in the ladies room as we were leaving and commended me for bringing my daughter. I laughed and thanked her. A sweet ending to a very memorable evening.
