Okay, so this weekend didn't quite turn out the way I thought it would. We did go downtown on Fountain Square in Cincy on Friday night for the Flying Pig Marathon party but we didn't stay for the pink fireworks. Bummer! It had been raining on and off on Friday night and we had our granddaughter Maddie and our nine months pregnant daughter Melissa with us. Maddie of course loved the rain, she thought it was fun. So we stayed for a little while and enjoyed the food. They had a pink carpet instead of a red one going into this big tent. Here are a few photos of the pig centerpieces they had on the tables. I thought they were very cute.
But then Saturday morning there was more rain, sometimes it was heavy. So I decided not to go down to where they were having the kiddie races and to where they were having a few races before the big one on Sunday. My sweetie had to go because he was announcing winners but with just getting over being sick, I was not going to hang out in the rain. So I went to see Made of Honor. Now I know this movie has been getting trashed in the critics reviews but I thought it was cute. I give it a chick flick two thumbs up. I enjoyed it, yes it was predictable and yes there were never any big surprises but hey it was fun and they were in Scotland for part of the movie so that was fun to watch also. I think it's a fun date night movie.
Anyway, after the announcing of the races Saturday morning, my sweetie came home and by late afternoon he was really sick, bad stomach cramps etc.....He went straight to bed where he has been all day. Poor guy, he is really wiped out. He couldn't even go to the big race this morning and do the announcing. So I told him today that we would watch chick flicks all day. That didn't seem to cheer him up too much. LOL Actually he fell asleep and I watched chick flicks most of the day in between taking care of my patient. I watched 27 dresses and part of The Lake House, which was on HBO and the old Sabrina movie with Audrey Hepburn. I did get out The Notebook which is the ultimate chick flick but ran out of time to watch it. So what is your favorite chick flick? I have lots, I love Nottinghill with Julia Roberts and I don't know if Under the Tuscan Sun counts as a chick flick but I like that one also. I better go, my patient is calling for me. If he's too sick for work tomorrow, I'll have him watching some chick flicks all day, that'll cure him fast. LOL Have a good one!
