When we got home from Seaside, we had a week in before we went to Rexburg for graduation. We didn't have one thing we HAD to do that week; no dance, no gym, no nothing. So Tess and I got busy in doing some fun stuff!
We started out one day picking up Tessa's friend, and going to the free movie at the theater, "Despicable Me 2". People. I love our theater. I love that they do a free movie every week. It's so nice. I realize that I already own most of the movies they are showing, but really, for a person that loves going to the movies, this is still like, pure heaven. Love.
So we went to the free movie, and while we were there, realized that How To Train Your Dragon 2 was still there, and that we really wanted to see it!! So after the free movie, we went home for about an hour, then headed back to the theater to go see it. Two movies in one day? Yes, please!!
I thoroughly loved this movie! I loved the story line, and I loved the humor in it. There is a little bit of sadness, but lots of good too. It was a fun movie and I will most definitely be buying it! I wholeheartedly recommend it!
In June, when I spent a week with Tyson and Aly, getting to know my little granddaughter, I read a lot o books. I have a mini Ipad, and I have an app on there that allows me to download books onto my Ipad, but I'm here to tell you, I can not figure out how to download those books to save my life! But I have a secret book dealer, Miss Angie, who is so awesome to loan to me all the e-books that she has. I told her before I left for Monterey, I just need lots of fluffy books to keep me entertained while I just hold my precious little Scout Mae. She totally obliged and sent me six great books, all of them mostly fluff. It was perfect. I read all six while I was there, in one week. You can tell how much I was just sitting and holding Sweet Scout.
One of the books I read was called, "Where'd You Go, Bernadette?" It was one of the most quirky, fun, interesting books I've ever read. At this point, I can't really remember if there was swearing in it, but I have the feeling there wasn't much. The story revolves around Bernadette, a reknown but reclusive architect, her husband Elgin, who works for Microsoft, and their daughter, Bee, a wild and free spirit. The story revolves around the slow and winding decline of their family, and it's eventual coming back together. It was very different, and therefore, very interesting to read.
Thanks Angie, for such a great bunch of books! I'm well into my second batch of books from you!
If you have some recommendations for me, please leave me a comment! I'd love to hear what you've been watching/reading/doing for fun!
