9 Years!

Last night Ben and I went out to dinner at our usual spot, The Sow's Ear, to celebrate nine years of being a couple. It wasn't our official day (he was working in Colorado and I was celebrating a friend's birthday), but I know it has been atleast 4 years (or 6, we aren't sure) since we were together on the 29th so this is standard practice for us. We can't wait for the big 1-0!

Movie Review: The Ugly Truth

I should have checked Rotten Tomatoes before suggesting this movie to my friends for a girl's night. I actually feel really bad. Luckily the theatre was full so I wasn't alone in my mistake.

Typical romantic comedy but a little more crude. I did think the beginning was funny, but then it just became flat. And in the end, the "moral" was a little confusing (or non-existent). It won't be long before it is on TV, just wait and watch it there.

Drinks at our usual place helped to salvage a nice Friday evening. Luckily the pick for next weekend (Julie & Julia) has a much better rating!
