Last night I was finally able to go on a much needed date with my sweetheart. My little Natalie. We decided to go out to dinner and a movie, and maybe try and squeeze in some shopping if possible. We started off at Chili's and gorged ourselves on spinach artichoke dip. macaroni and cheese and the big mouth burger bites (SO, SO good! Oh goodness!). We were so full, we brought home TONS of leftovers! There were a few different movies to choose from, but we both decided to see Mamma Mia! I know, I know it is rated PG-13, BUT Natalie is still young enough that any innuendos just went right over her head and she just LOVED all the singing and dancing. Of course I bought the soundtrack, and she just loves Honey, Honey and Money, Money, Money(and she just requested I turn it to "the one where Sophie is one the beach" aka Lay All Your Love On Me). I loved the movie so much, the music is so good, and the movie was done so well! I also wanted to jump right in to the movie set and settle on in! It was absolutely stunning where they had the movie set. Even though the hotel was supposed to be old and falling apart, it was absolutely perfect, from the colors to the atmosphere! My idea of paradise! My favorite song segment was the S.O.S. song sung by Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan, so good. The whole thing was good, if you like ABBA at all, you will love this movie. I highly recommend it, and of course I always recommend Chili's!
I was so glad that Natalie and I were able to get to spend some nice time with each other, just her and I. It needs to be more of a regular thing I think, and will need to be something we do until she moves out. I feel like she is able to be heard more, and it helps me to know what is going on in her little world. Plus, I think it just makes her feel special!
P.S. How many times can one post have the word "good" in it, methinks I need to pull out the thesaurus! Good, good, good!
