Movies, Weekend Fun and Happy Presidents Day!

Hi everyone! Hope you had a great weekend. We went to see this movie on Friday night. It's a sci-fi flick and a little confusing one at that. A young man discovers he can teleport himself anywhere and also finds himself running from the people who hate jumpers and try to kill them. Interesting concept and one that could save you lots of money in airplane travel if you had the ability to do this. LOL It was interesting but left a lot of things unexplained. But it still kept my interest for a few hours. I really loved the parts where they filmed in Rome, great footage of the city.
And I also went to see this flick last week and thought it was cute. It's a chick flick for sure but it's alot of fun. I think a lot of you know the details of this movie, a girl has been a bridesmaid 27 times and never a bride. Cute show and some of those bridesmaid dresses were pretty awful. LOL
And this is what we did at the mall Saturday night. Up the escalator.............
And down the the escalator, over and over again. I don't think Gramps knows the word NO when it comes to Maddie. LOL
And just because I thought this was too cute. Maddie was fascinated by the Macy's clock on the floor, she just couldn't figure it out. And Happy Presidents Day! Here are a few quotes from Abe that I thought were good.

"I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction I had no where else to go. My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for that day"

" I claim not to have controlled events, but confess plainly that events have controlled me."

"Whenever I hear anyone agruing for slavery I feel a strong impulse to have it tried on him personally"

"Leave nothing for tomorrow that can be done today."

Great quotes though I think I think in my world I leave nothing for today that can be done tomorrow. LOL Have a great Monday!

The pictures of hubbin and Maddie are just too cute...and that clock on the floor could probably keep her amused for quite a while!

My lovin' hubbin' wants to see Jumper, too...hmmmm...not sure if I I saw the trailer when seeing "27 Dresses" and the trailer was so-oooo loud...I thought my ears were going to bleed. Honestly, that is one reason I don't like action movies at the theater...too darn loud...I sound OLD and cranky, don't I???? hmmmm

Loved the quotes...good Ole Abe...a gentle giant!

I love your new header, so spring like and inspiring. I was just thinking that I need a date with hubby - it's been 3 months since we got out just us 2 and we need to have a movie date. He wants to wait until he's had the wisdom tooth out on the 29th Feb that has been causing him heaps of we want to see the "Bucket List" , 27 dresses is out for us right now too. The first movie you mentioned sounds interesting. I will have to check when it's out over here!
Your granddaughter is sooo very cute.

I would love for you to stop by the party on Wednesday to surprise (hopefully!) the birthday girl, enjoy a bite of cake, sprinkle a little of your magic birthday dust, and check out the party favor giveaway!



Oh Joan, that's so funny. Your hubbie going up & down, up & down. The things we do. Love the pics of Maddie with your jewellery. My teenage granddaughters used to do the same thing, old dresses, heels, beads, the lot. I must see if I can find the pics. coll :-}

I need to add 27 dresses to our Netflix queue - I've heard good things about it from anyone who's seen it, even if they were all females!
