A wonderful day

Yesterday could not have been better. There wasn't anything super special about it. We didn't do something like go to Disneyland, we just had a great day.

Nice lazy morning. Enjoyed a couple cups of coffee. Headed out to the Main Place mall. Usually when we go we go to one store only, but we went to a few. Macy's, Nordstroms, Journeys, Sanrio, Macys (the other one) and Justice. While waiting for us in Justice Eric and Diego went to See's.

From there we went to Chili Pepper and had a nice champagne brunch (at lunch time). They were much slower than usual but we were in no hurry. I tried something new (which I don't usually do) and it was great.

Off to home where thankful we had left the air on, so the house was nice and cool.

We watched a few old episodes of Dr. Who. We all sat around the couch and watched it together. That is one of the shows everyone really enjoys. About the time we were done (6pm) I opened the door to outside and oh my gosh, what a lovely cool breeze. Almost cold.

Eric and Diego kicked the soccer ball, Siobhan was on the computer and I did a little weeding in my garden.

Followed up by Mad Men.

A lot of TV. Especially for us but it was wonderful!

Two more movie reviews:
The Ramen Girl- she follows her boyfriend to Japan where he leaves her. She wants to learn to make ramen. She doesn't speak Japanese, her teacher doesn't speak English. Interesting.

Sunshine Cleaners- two sisters decide to start a business called Sunshine Cleaners and they are cleaning up after murders and suicides. I liked it.

I like movies. Well, doesn't everyone? But lately I have been taking advantage of my Netflix app for my iPad and have been streaming movies like crazy. Usually one a night, sometimes one and a half.

I decided to put up the movies I have seen and let you know what I think about them. Most of the movies are Independent films. Usually romantic comedies. These are the movies I have seen in the last month.

If I put "Wouldn't watch it again" that probably means it sucked to you, but that isn't what I mean.

Broken English- cute, a little dark, a girl can't find romance but kinda does, sorta wouldn't watch it again

Ira & Abby- LOVED it. Highly recommend it. They decide to marry within 10 minutes of meeting one another.

2 Days in Paris- cute, funny, subtitles, think Eric would like it too

How About You- this is a nice movie about older people who live in a home together and become a family, good

Cashback- odd, about a guy who imagines he can stop time.

TIMER- different but I liked it. Most people have a "timer" it tells them time until the exact second they will meet their soul mate.

Outsourced- A guys job is being outsourced to India and he has to go there to train them and guess what? He finds love!

Did You Hear About the Morgans- um, I don't remember too much so it was probably only okay

I Do & I Don't- cute about marriage

Table for Three-don't really remember too much. hmm

Shades of Ray- I really liked this movie. The guys dad was too funny.

Bella-this was a good movie. Eric will like this one too (oops)

In a Day- let's just say lots happens to her in a day. It starts off really, really bad and gets better. I liked it!

Wake- a girl who goes to, you guessed it, Wakes. It was cute.

The Proposal- his boss is going to be deported so they agree to marry and of course fall in love.

The Ugly Truth- cute, you have probably heard of it. He is a pig and she falls in love with him anyway.

Woman on Top- great movie. It was about a girl who has serious motion sickness and her need to "be on top" because of it. It involves her love, being cheated on. It isn't THAT type of movie.

I will write after I watch some more!

Have you seen any of these movies?
