Bride Wars, Party Tips & Annie Review

Ok it’s almost 9am on a Saturday and if I am going to get anything done this is going to have to be short and sweet. Last night I went out with 6 lovely ladies to see Bride Wars, it was cute, silly, fun, and just all around a great chick flick. I even shed a little tear, it touched this girls heart. I am a big fan of Kate Hudson, and she was great in this movie!

Before I went to the movie, I hit up the gym for what was supposed to be a quick workout. When I got to the gym my friend Katie was there and we ended up chatting on the ET machine for almost an HOUR! I burned 650 calories, and am SORE today. I haven’t been on the ET machine for that long ever, I usually get bored. We are going to be doing that more often, I love having workout buddies.

Cool story here I must share with you all. Yesterday I went to go purchase my books online for my A&P class. All was good until I saw that my books are going to be over 300 dollars!!! WHAT! The class is only 80 dollars!! I was kinda of depressed and started talking myself  out of going back to school. That’s just a lot of money to fork out right now. Well to make a long story short, Katie told me last night that her Hubby took that class and he could give me his BOOK! I was shocked, God is so good.

After class I ran home and ate a quick dinner, 2 ww waffles with AB and honey. Oh and I got a FUN PACKAGE I can’t wait to share with you, soon!!!Then packed some treats to the movies with me, I knew the waffles wouldn’t hold me over. I brought a 100 calorie pack of popcorn, an orange, 5 or 6 peppermint chocolate mints, and some Snacktrition trail mix. O and I packed a water bottle. This was SO Much better then buying the movie theater snacks.

Here is his review:

“The Annie ravioli was great. It tastes like a Chef-Boyardee's Spaghetti O's. In fact, these cans are really stuffed to the very tip top and when I was done, I actually felt like I had a filling meal. $1.25 meal satisfiedthis hubby.”

That is fantastic about the book situation. No accident in my book (no pun intended).

For your Superbowl party, "build your own...." bars are always fun (pizza, sundaes, quesadillas, baked potatoes, etc.) People can then be as healthy or unhealthy as they want and they can't blame you either way =)

I saw Bride Wars this weekend, too - exactly what I wanted out of a fluffy romantic comedy!

We go to a superbowl party every year where someone makes a sort of 'trivia' game broken down by quarter -whether the first play will be a run or a pass, who's going to score first, how many field goals per half, whether the first beverage commercial will be alcohol soda or sports drink, etc... We all fill it out before the game starts and tally our own scores, and then someone is declared the winner at the end. It's a fun way to stay engaged in the game.

I'll have to try those ravioli's I bet my 3 year would LOVE THEM! Cute bag btw :)

Love the Annies review, huge fan of the mac and cheese. Love the idea of packing healthy stuff for the movies. I am not used to it because my old theater would check every friggin bag, but I will pack wise next time!
