Movie Review: The Proposal

So I'm a little late in writing this, but better late than never!
It was July 4th and the theater was surprisingly packed!

The Proposal, rated PG-13 (for sexual content, nudity, and language). 
[Ok, how is nudity not in the realm of sexual content?]

Did you know that Sandra Bullock is 45?
She looks damn fine for 45! I can only hope to look half as good, and as far as nudity goes, don't worry your eyes won't be scarred, there are no 'parts'.

I feel like I have said this with just about every movie I have seen this summer, but I'll say it again: The previews don't really do this movie justice!

I was thinking, ok, another romantic comedy, I'm sure it will be fine, but it was actually really funny! Like, laugh out loud funny in some parts (mostly do to Betty White who I hear tried to get a nude scene of her own).

The storyline was a bit far-fetched, but honestly in a day of vampires and wizards its ok to be a little out there!

My favorite character in the movie [besides Betty White]: Kevin the dog.

He is an American Eskimo and I believe he is a puppy in the movie, but I want him [only if he remained small like that though].

....oh, and Ryan Reynolds isn't so bad to look at either! :)

Happy Anniversary!!!!

not to me...
or my blog...

...but to two of my favorite people in the whole wide world: Ash and Lauren!

[Leaving for their Honeymoon in a sea of bubbles!]

[This picture was taken at the rehearsal the night before the wedding]

They were married on July 21, 2007 and I was more than honored to be a part of their wedding!

[The dresses were orange and yellow and PERFECT!]

Happy 2nd Anniversary Ash and Lauren! You have both been such great friends to me and can't wait to come home [or you can come visit anytime...really, anytime you want] so we can be together again!

[They were getting ready to cut the cake :)]

It was even baby Myla's 1st wedding!

[She was just 2 months and 5 days old!...and for some reason looks all drugged out in this pic?]

Part of the wedding favors were pens [be still my heart] and if you can't tell, I still use mine about everyday [it might help that I have about 10 of them...just saying...]

Happy Anniversary! I love you both!

Font color...

Quick question:

Is the black font hard to read?

post in the comments and let me know!

Thanks as always! 

...have I mentioned how much I like reading comments?!?

18 days?

Someone fell off the blogging wagon, and that someone would be ME.
I really don't have an excuse. 
I just don't feel like I have anything exciting to blog about, but since I have gotten multiple messages from faithful readers, I am jumping back on the blogging train [cue whistle].

So, what have the past 18 days been like in this part of the woods??? Let me consult my iCal for a quick recap:
  • I spent the 4th of July with my dear friend Kris and we saw The Proposal (don't worry there will be a Movie Review later in the week)
  • I was in my GLORIOUS home state of Ohio for a long weekend. [several posts on its own including my niece, a wedding and Ash and Lauren's new house!!!]
  • I saw HP 6 on premiere day, but alas, not at midnight due to other HP fanatics [again, a Movie review is in the patient!]
  • I ran in MY FIRST RACE EVER!!! Its true! I ran in the Race for Central Park 4 mile run this past weekend and had  a B-L-A-S-T!!! [Race report to follow!]
Whew.  A little bit more going on than I realized! All the better to blog about! :)
Look for an update in the next 24 hr!

Ready to Run!

Well, there's no going back now...

Yep, I have signed up for the 'Run for Central Park' on July 18th in NYC! (No, that is not me in the picture, ha!)

Have I ever run 4 miles before?  No.
Have I ever competed in a race?   No. (Though my mom might disagree with me and point to a a scar on my foot from a 'foot race' this past Christmas, but that's a different blog post all together!)

I've been running/jogging/walking in the mornings before I head into lab. It really hasn't been as hard to get up as I thought it would be! (Hopefully this will continue!)

[I could possibly be more excited about the 'free' t-shirt than the race itself..]

Oh!!!! Rachel is busy working-away on my new blog design, and let me tell you it is SnAzZy! (Just you wait! It is awesome!)

I'm thinking that I will have to do a give-away to accompany the new design! :)
