Lonestar Girls Night

I have a neighbor that I have been getting to know better more recently. She is a nice lady, a bit older than me, but she has a daughter between my girls ages. She has come over for coffee a few times, and I have gone to her house. Her daughter invited my girls to go to a youth rally at her church tonight, and she and I decided to drop them off and go out for a bit. She had to buy a wedding gift, so we went to the World Market store - and I loved it! (It did make me miss my friend Tina, but at the same time made me happy to be doing something that made me feel connected to her!) I got some dark chocolate covered espresso beans! Woo hoo! I also got some breakfast blend coffee beans and added about 100 new items on my wish list. After that we went out and ate mediocre chinese food. It wasn't horrible - but not great either; thankfully the company was good! When we picked the girls up - we went to see if Becoming Jane was playing at the two local theaters yet. It wasn't playing at the first one so we headed out across town. As we were leaving the mall parking lot where the first theater was, we were followed by two motorcycles that revved the engines, causing the three teenage girls hopped up on chocolate covered esperesso beans (bad idea!) to turn around and wave. The first chance they got, they passed us up - and did wheelies and other stunts to show off! We were laughing so hard. Our movie wasn't playing at the second theater either, so we decided to see No Reservations with Catherine Zeta-Jones. It was pretty good. Another food movie like Ratatouille - but without the rats! It was just an all around fun night. I needed it so much - and I had such a nice time. I hope we get to do it again soon. The girls had a great time too!


  1. I'm so happy you had a fun girls night. That's a great way to "lift the fog," as are the chocolate-covered espresso beans, for that matter. It's funny you drove around looking for Becoming Jane. I scoured the local movie listings only to find that BJ is opening IN SELECTED CITIES this weekend. Pooh! Have a fun Saturday! I'm going out shopping with my mom - expect a fascinating post about my Target adventures!

  2. I'd love to go see both of those movies! Glad you had a great time out.

  3. I can't wait to see Becoming Jane! it won't be here for a while, if ever. We are a one movie theater town! Oh well that's what big screen tv's are for.
    Glad you had fun :-)

  4. I'm glad you had an opportunity to go out. That makes such a difference!

    I have never heard of Becoming Jane. I will have to look it up. Jeanette and I went to see No Reservations last night and had a good time. We were thinking of you and Tina because after the movie we went to Wal-Mart and did our grocery shopping at 11 at night. Made me miss you!!

  5. I looked up Becoming Jane and now I can't wait for it to come out! Jane Austen is my all time favorite author! I love her books. I'm a hopeless romantic. I was disappointed that the website didn't give an approximate time of when it would be coming out. It appears that it is just has the prescreening shows right now.


Awaiting your words......
