Today was

my birthday.

I got to do one of my favorite things tonight - go to a movie with Chris. In fact, we went twice - back to back (the first time ever). Can I tell you how fun it is to walk out at the end of a movie, head back to the front counter, buy a second ticket to another feature, and walk right back in all over again.

We started off with Dan In Real Life with Steve Carrell. Loved it. Had to come home and download Let My Love Open The Door and listen to it over and over again.

Round two was American Gangster with Denzel Washington & Russell Crowe. Another really good movie.

It was a really good birthday.
